The Jeep Renegade is a small SUV/crossover that sits under the Compass in the Jeep family. Despite the brand name and familiar Jeep design cues, the Renegade is actually based on the Fiat 500X and is built in Italy.

The Renegade arrived in the UK in early 2015 and differentiates itself from its Fiat sister with the availability of improved off-road ability, especially in the top-spec Trailhawk model. It receive a facelift in late 2018.

It has received generally average to poor reviews from the UK media, especially more recent reviews of the facelifted model. As of August 2021, it has an Expert Rating of 48%, which is well off the pace of the best in class and ranks it only 18th out of 20 cars that we have analysed in its class to date.

The Jeep Renegade has received praise for its off-road capabilities, which are far better than most of its small SUV rivals. However, its on-road refinement is considered poor compared to the cars like the Ford Puma and Volkswagen T-Cross.
