2019 Jeep Renegade

$22,025 | U.S. News Score: 7.8/10

The 2019 Jeep Renegade is a subcompact SUV with an urban attitude blended with the off-road soul of a Jeep. For 2019, Jeep updated the styling of the Renegade while adding a peppy 177-horsepower turbocharged engine to its lengthy option list. It joins the anemic 180-horsepower non-turbo base engine. 

In our ranking of subcompact SUVs, the Renegade earns a spot about two-thirds of the way down the list. While the Renegade does have a predicted reliability rating that’s below average and a nine-speed automatic transmission that’s not very refined, it also has off-road performance that’s unparalleled in the class. Properly equipped, the Renegade excels in traversing road and weather conditions that would leave most competitors cowering in their garages. 

With its seats folded, the Renegade can carry 50.8 cubic feet of cargo, which can be quickly loaded through its large rear hatch. The front passenger seat can be folded forward to allow the carrying of long items.
