The Jeep Renegade is unique, has some great off-road ability and is hugely practical.
It’s the smallest 4×4 in the Jeep range and interestingly, shares a platform with the Fiat 500X. There are four engines available, two petrol engines and two diesel engines. Entry levels are front-wheel drive but higher spec models come with four-wheel drive. If you want the fastest Jeep in the range then you will have to look at the 1.4-litre petrol in a 168bhp guise. This can do 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. However, if you’re looking for the most efficient Jeep then the 1.4 turbo MultiAir which achieves 47mpg and emits 140g/km of CO2.
There are four trim levels available; the Sport, Longitude, Limited and the Trailhawk, the flagship model. Standard equipment on the lower trim levels include 17-inch alloy wheels, electric mirrors, air-con and electric windows. The Limited version and above get automatic wipers and lights.

Engines include a 285bhp 3.6-litre petrol V6, a 197bhp 2.2-litre diesel and a 270bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol. The V6 will be the only model offered with a manual gearbox. The fastest model will be the 3.6-litre V6 automatic, reaching 0-60mph in 8.0 seconds. However, there is no word yet on the most economical model but we’re sure these numbers will be made available in 2018.

The entry-level model comes with automatic headlights, climate control, cruise control, hill descent control and power folding and heated mirrors.

This also comes with a touchscreen display, sat-nav, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. The mid-range model comes with a front sway bar and rock rails and the highest trim adds a power-retracting hood, bronze interior and exterior details as well as brown and tangerine leather upholstery.
Of course, because there is a brand new model coming out, there is no word on how much it will cost to lease. However, as there are no huge changes from the previous Wrangler, we can use the current prices as a guide. Please double check the new prices if you are looking at the Wrangler.
