a budget-friendly jeep

Pros - Affordable, best off-roading option in this price range, comfortable ride

Cons - Can pose some problems

Off-roading beast "This is one of the budget-friendly options from Jeep and its off-roading capability is second to none among its direct rivals. Also provides a comfortable ride throughout and really delivers throughout any journey" "One of the few dealerships that do not force you to buy the most attractively priced option or their preferred models. The people there consider your budget and needs and then lead to the car that they think would be best for you"

The Menacing Kona

Pros - "Best off-roader in its class Roomy, well-made cabin Balanced ride and handling"

Cons - "Below-average reliability rating Unrefined transmissions"

good family car I love the fact that it’s extremely spacious especially for a little person like myself!! I love how quiet it is when I drive. I love mostly how smooth it is when I ride! It has great features, however I wish there were a few more. I’m happy with the color, it’s a beautiful dark blue and not just another simple color.

Jeep Renegade Review

Pros - Easy to use tech features,great handling and good off-roader

Cons - Noisy box shaped cabin and low fuel economy figures

maintains good balance and grip over the rough terrain The puppy-like or cute lookS of this SUV make you feel small inside but it has enough space in the seats give good headroom but the legroom is poor.The tires, suspension and braking are equipped with the right math as the roll,pitch, yaw was balanced. cabin and has a limitation in the cargo utility.The rear This made me more confident in driving. Thanks to the engineers for that.

Overall Rating


The 2015 Jeep Renegade is the all-new model for this year and mars an import model for the company. The Renegade is super affordable and thus is less powerful than its bigger siblings. The two engine options of 1.4-liter and 2.4-liter provide decent power yet are great on the overall performance. Jeep has always been great on the off-road capabilities and this one is no different. Thus the Renegade faces head-on competition from equally capable SUVs like the Ford Escape and Kia Soul.

We Recommend

The Latitude trim is the most practical and functional trim in the Jeep Renegade line-up. It offers not only the most basic advanced features as standard, but it also includes premium quality materials for its interior and it is relatively cheaper than the higher trims. 

2015 Jeep Renegade Engine and Performance

8.6/10

The 2015 Jeep Renegade is offered in a 1.4L Inline-4 engine that is responsible for providing a power output of 160hp and a torque of 184lb-ft. The handling of the 2015 Jeep Renegade is quite sturdy and provides a strong grip, despite feeling smooth on the roads.

The 2015 Jeep Renegade comes with a four-wheel-drive drivetrain that is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Despite providing a good grip, the manual transmission has been criticized for slowing down the engine leading to a slowed response in the acceleration. The 2015 Jeep Renegade sprints from 0-60MPH in 8.7 seconds and reaches its quarter-mile in 16.0 seconds.

From the data, it is evident that the Ford Escape has a relatively more powerful model than its rivals. It offers the maximum power and torque. Additionally, the Ford Escape is also relatively slower than its rivals. The Jeep Renegade comes second in terms of its engine performance and it provides the fastest acceleration whereas the Kia Soul is the least powerful model and it is also the slowest one. 

2015 Jeep Renegade Fuel Economy

The 2015 Jeep Renegade is considered to provide adequate fuel economy that is on par with most of the subcompact cars. The Jeep Renegade has a fuel capacity of 12.7 gallons that is used to run a decent mileage. 

The 2015 Jeep Renegade offers 24MPG within city limits, 31MPG on the highways, and combined mileage of 27MPG. These figures can best be considered as average since most of its rivals provide a better fuel economy in the market.

It is evident that despite having almost similar mileage, it is the Jeep Renegade that seems to offer the better individual fuel economy. However, on the flip side, the Kia Soul has the least amount of fuel capacity and provides. The Ford Escape comes next in terms of fuel economy but it provides the best range in terms of mileage. 

2015 Jeep Renegade Interior

7.9/10

The interior of the Jeep Renegade doesn’t base its design on style and attractiveness, rather it focuses on the practicality and usefulness of the interior spaces. The cabin seems spacious and is filled with all the standard technologies as one would expect from an SUV. The cabin is made up of cloth and refined plastic which looks minimalist and not dull. 

The Jeep Renegade moreover, includes cloth upholstery. The higher trims are offered in leather upholstery. The 2015 Jeep Renegade can easily accommodate 5 passengers with maximum comfort. The design of the cabin makes sense here as it attempts to offer the maximum comfortable space to each individual occupant.

  • AM/FM
  • Auxiliary Audio Input
  • USB Ports
  • Bluetooth
  • Navigation
  • Wireless Charging

2015 Jeep Renegade Exterior

7.0/10

It has been speculated that the exterior of the 2015 Jeep Renegade neatly split the difference between tough and cute while keeping the undeniable essence of the Jeep lines intact. The design of the 2015 Jeep Renegade makes it look like a traditional jeep that is all set to attract young buyers. 

The exterior includes a tall, slab-sided, and upright little utility with some of the details deliberately oversized to emphasize its heritage. At the front, a traditional seven-slot vertical Jeep grille is flanked by large round headlights. Overall, the size of the Renegade along with its dimensions makes it appear brutish yet uptight.
