2016 Jeep Renegade – Crossover cuddly.

Looking for all the world like something a Pokémon Go character would drive, the diminutive Renegade is the latest Jeep to bound into the market. The small four-door hatchback shares its platform and its Italian assembly line with the Fiat 500X. It’s priced between the unloved (and soon to be replaced) Patriot and the larger, more cherished Cherokee. It’s the squarest Jeep this side of a Wrangler, hiding its car roots behind a traditional seven-slot grille, round headlamps, a high stance, squared-off wheel wells, and a semi-flat windshield that would do any Jeep CJ proud.

What’s New: The Renegade was all-new for 2015, so updates and additions for 2016 are few. The optional nine-speaker premium audio system with 506-watt amp and 6.5-inch subwoofer gains Beats-branded speakers. Also, rain-sensing windshield wipers are available on all but the base Sport model. A limited-production 75th Anniversary Edition and an all-black Dawn of Justice Special Edition (sans cape) both appeared for 2016.

What We Like: Die-hard Jeep Wrangler fans may not approve of this car-based mongrel made in Italy, but the Renegade mostly makes friends. We think it’s cute, too. The Renegade’s Cracker Jack­–box flat flanks and abbreviated but tall profile work to its advantage, giving it one of the roomiest cabins in its class and a useful cargo area. A high center of gravity does contribute to body roll, yet the diminutive Jeep has decent overall balance and fairly quick, linear steering. Considering the short wheelbase, body motions are ably controlled. The front seats have plenty of thorax-hugging lateral support, while the softer bottom cushions are hotspot-free for long stints. The turbo 1.4-liter and six-speed manual powertrain combination offers generous low- and mid-range torque, precise shifter throws, and smooth clutch action. Cool options include the removable MySky roof panel and the clear-sounding Beats audio system.
