Detailed Review

The Jeep Renegade is the smallest SUV in Jeep’s lineup but the Renegade doesn’t wants people to get fooled with its size. The 2019 Jeep Renegade, draws inspiration from its other bigger sibling, The Wrangler and Cherokee. The Renegade packs in a typical Jeep design on the outside with its 7 slot grille being the most noticeable element of the lot.

Other than this, the Renegade has some cool modern touches like LED Headlights and Taillights, upmarket Infotainment system with 4G connectivity and a lot more. For the off-roading part, Jeep has supplied the Renegade with skid plates for the underbody and near the front fascia and a lot more. Buyers can also fiddle around with the 2 Engine options-a 1.3L Turbo Petrol and the 2.4L Naturally Aspirated motor.

2019 Jeep Renegade Engine

"If you're looking for an affordable compact SUV that doesn't just look rugged and ready for action but actually is, you'll like the 2019 Jeep Renegade.." Kelley Blue Book

Engine and Transmission

Jeep has revamped its engine line up for 2019 for the renegade and has introduced a new unit as well. The base 2.4L Tigershark Multiair 2 Engine, standard on the Sport and the Latitude trims, makes about 180hp and 175lbs.-ft. of Torque. The New 1.3L Multi Jet Turbo Motor with Direct Injection motor delivers 177hp and 210lbs.-ft. of torque and replaces the old 1.4L Multi Jet motor. The Engine is available as Standard from the Trailhawk trim onwards and comes as an option in the lower trims.

The New 1.3L Motor, despite being smaller in displacement than the motor it displaces, still belts out a lot more power than the same and has better responses to Throttle Inputs. Jeep has also standardized the 9 Speed Automatic on all trims and users can no longer have a manual transmission, even as option. The Turbo Motor comes standard with Start/Stop Technology that aids the efficiency of the Motor on the whole.

In terms of the rivals, the Jeep manages to outshine the competition in terms of power and performance figures by a big margin. What is disappointing is the fact that the transmission in the Jeep isn\u2019t the most-slick shifting unit and can be clumsy and noisy while shifting gears.

Acceleration

The Jeep Renegade performs as well as the other cars in the segment in terms of the 0-60 runs. Things however become a bit less favorable for the Jeep, as it is the slowest to do the quarter mile dash. In terms of daily driving however, the Multiair motor never runs out of breathe for making the odd overtaking move on the city and on the highway.

Talking competition, the Mazda CX-3 manages to run rings around the competition in the 0-60 timings and the quarter mile dash as well. The Ford and the Honda match each other in the quarter mile dash but the Honda manages to beat the Ford in the 0-60 dash.

Braking

The 2019 Renegade comes with Active Braking (advanced brake assist that increases the brake pressure if the driver is not braking enough). Brake pedals feel firm and it stops from 60-0 in 126 feet, which is average for the class.

Speaking of rivals, it's the Mazda CX-3 again that trumps the others with its braking performance. The compact Ford Ecosport is the second best after the Mazda, courtesy of its potent brakes while the Honda and the Jeep are separated by the smallest of margins.

Ride and Handling

You will be as happy to drive the Renegade on the city roads as on the rocky terrains, thanks to its relaxed and composed handling. It doesn lean on sides while cornering and feels agile. When it comes to the trims, the Latitude offers sharper and engaging drive than the Trailhawk. The steering wheel on the Renegade feels light and weighs up well at speeds.

On a daily driving basis, the Jeep won't disappoint as well courtesy of its very capable driving manners and a good composure on road. The Body roll is well contained at City speeds and the compact proportions, adds to the maneuverability of the SUV in the city. The Trailhawk trim feels the best Off-Road and the potent AWD setup ensures that the Jeep doesn\u2019t disappoint on those tough terrains.

Towing Capacity

The Jeep Renegade manages to weigh in its off road credentials in the towing capacity as well. The Jeep Renegade can tug up to 2,000 pounds and doesn't lose breathe in towing the same. This towing capacity can be used for hauling small boats, trailers, and snowmobiles.

The Mazda CX-3 has the dynamic edge over the rest of its rivals but in terms of towing capacity, it fails miserably and comes up with the least figures here. The Ford and the Honda come toe to toe in terms of capacity but still fall short of the Jeep mighty 2000lbs capacity.

2019 Jeep Renegade Fuel Economy

The Jeep Renegade offers decent performance for the kind of engines it comes with. However, it compromises the MPG figures while achieving the same. The base Renegade with 1.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder has an EPA rating of 24 mpg city, 31 highways and 26 combined with both front and all-wheel drive. While the 2.4-liter inline-4 offers 21/29/24 mpg with AWD and 22/30/25 mpg with front-wheel drive.

2019 Jeep Renegade Interior

"It might look rugged on the outside, but on the inside, the Renegade is comfortable and well-trimmed. Although a bare-bones Sport does without air-conditioning and cruise control, most Renegades come pretty well equipped and have soft-touch materials for the dash and armrests." Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

Inside, the Renegade is not as impressive as others in the segment. Material quality is average with hard plastics although once you are inside the lovely texture and color choices on dashboard brighten things up. For a small car, it has plenty of space inside with enough headroom for taller folks although they might find the legroom bit tight.

The cabin cuts you completely from the engine noise but wind noise is an issue considering its boxy shape. Latitude trim soaks up bumps better than the Trailhawk and offers better ride quality. The driving position is comfortable and the upright windshield provides you a broader view of the road ahead. The Renegade boasts comfy seats with a wide range of adjustments.

Interior Features

  • McKinley Leather Trimmed seats with matching inserts
  • Heated Front seats and Steering Wheel
  • 40/20/40 split folding bench seats

  • Connect 8.4 Touchscreen infotainment System
  • Siri, Apple Car play, Android Auto Compatibility
  • SiriusXM Guardian with Voice Command
  • 7 Full Color Digital Cluster Display
  • 9 Speaker Beats Audio System
  • Bluetooth and USB connectivity

Cargo Space

Not the best in class but still the 2019 Jeep Renegade offers a respectable amount of cargo space with 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 50.8 cubic feet overall. There is an also an optional front passenger seat folding available which lets you carry long objects.

The 2019 Jeep Renegade is a compact crossover SUV with the chunky details and a boxy shape to drive home the brand's woodsy heritage-Thecarconnection.com

Design and Dimensions

The 2019 Renegade is soulfully a Jeep with its round headlight, seven-slot grilles, and craggy attitude. It is a real Jeep and from outside it gives you the feel of the DNA that it carries from the iconic Wrangler and luxurious Grand Cherokee. The Renegade looks modern rather than retro with an abundance of black trim and curved surfacing.

Exterior Features

There are some cool stuff to talk about when it comes to the exterior that the Renegade boasts. Like the X-featured in its taillight is derived from World War-II-era army jerrycans. The wheels have been squared-off giving it a more rugged look and the major difference between trims is that Sports models have flat black trim while the Limited model showcases a contrasting black roof. Top trim Trailhawk wears black wheels and a red toe hook.

Some of the Exterior features include:

  • Fog lamps
  • Deep Tinted Rear Glass
  • Wrap around black roof
  • 18 Aluminum Polished Granite Crystal Wheels
  • Heated Exterior Mirrors
  • Windshield Wiper De-icer
  • HID Projector LED Headlamps with optional LED Units

2019 Jeep Renegade Competition

Jeep Renegade Vs Honda HR-V

The 2019 Honda HR-V comes with better rear-seat adjustments. It also boasts better mileage and has more cargo space than the Renegade. Apart from this, you get air conditioning, cruise control, stereo anti-theft system, fog lights and alloy wheels as standard on the Honda and not on the Renegade. However, with Jeep, you get a more rugged looking SUV which appeals more to off-roader. With a price difference of $1500 between the two, Honda with its features scores better.

Jeep Renegade Vs Mazda cx-3

It may not have the toughness of the Renegade with it is a better SUV. Once inside the car, you would love its driving dynamics and sporty handling. It also scores better when it comes to fuel efficiency and its crash test results are best in the class. Mazda cx-3 also brags a more luxurious cabin than the Renegade. So, if you are in the market then do not forget to go and check out the Mazda cx-3. At the end of the day, the choice is yours.

Jeep Renegade Vs Ford EcoSport

Ford EcoSport is best suited to city driving rather than going off-roading in it. These two are completely different compact SUVs. Ford gives you better mileage and interior whereas, Renegade performs awesomely well while off-roading and is also a good city driver. It also has more space inside and comes at a lesser price than the Ford. Go for the Renegade, as it helps you in multi-tasking while with EcoSport you are limited to city and highway.

2019 Jeep Renegade Final Verdict

The 2019 Jeep Renegade is a good step from Jeep in providing a buyers, a small but immensely practical SUV. With a ton of modern features like a Touchscreen infotainment System with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, LED Headlights and Taillights, Dual Zone climate control and more, the Renegade packs a punch in terms of keeping in pace with the times. Couple it with Jeep DNA and its rugged off road ability and what you have in hand, is a perfect blend of a Compact SUV that can take you to office daily with ease and satisfy your needs for that occasional adventure.
