Review: Jeep Renegade Trailhawk 4×4 – Part 5

So I’ve come to the end of the review of the Jeep Renegade. First let me wrap up a few loose ends. At the end of my week with it I registered 10.3 L/100KM in mixed city and highway driving, a lot of which was in rush hour traffic. Now, given that this is a vehicle that has a 4×4 system driving the wheels, that’s actually not too shabby.

So what is the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk 4×4 going to cost you? As equipped it was $38,825. But the Renegade starts at $19,995 with lots of options in between that and what I drove. So you can find likely one that fits your budget. If I were to cross shop it against similar vehicles, I’d pick the Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke and Chevy Trax, Buick Encore, and the Mazda CX-3 that I reviewed earlier this year. However, none of those vehicles has the off road capabilities of the Renegade, which makes the Renegade unique in my opinion. It also brings a lot of utility to the table in a small package, including the ability to carry four humans in it, or a healthy amount of cargo. That’s not a minor point if you need a vehicle of this size that is capable of doing absolutely everything you need it to. If you’re looking for a sub compact sport utility vehicle that actually delivers on the utility part the Jeep Renegade has to be on your shopping list.
