Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Jeep Renegade mounts a spirited defense of its brand bona fides, but delivers a less convincing impression of a great economy car.

Pros
Looks like a real Jeep
User-friendly interior
Real off-road capability
Clever design Easter eggs
Tuck-away glass-panel roof

Cons
Not a five-seater
Too-snug rear seat
Gas mileage is meh
Upgraded 4-cylinder is noisy

The 2018 Jeep Renegade ranked #8 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Jeep Renegade has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Exceptional off-road capabilities
Upmarket interior
Smooth and nimble handling

Cons
Rivals have more standard features
Subpar gas mileage

By:

The Jeep Renegade receives a handful of infotainment updates for 2018. A rearview camera, a 5-inch touchscreen and a six-speaker audio system are all now standard. New, upgraded 7- and 8.4-inch touchscreens now include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. All touchscreens are loaded with the newest version of Jeep's Uconnect infotainment system.

PROS
Trailhawk model's best-in-class off-road capability
Agile handling when going around turns
Plenty of easy-to-use technology features
Lots of character with a classic Jeep look

CONS
Rear-seat legroom is tight for adults
Boxy shape makes for lots of wind noise on the highway
Fuel economy is middling for the segment
Nine-speed transmission is clunky and easily confused

The 2018 Buick Encore ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Buick Encore has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 41 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Nice interior with lots of standard features
User-friendly infotainment system
Nimble handling
Excellent predicted reliability

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Higher base price than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Its interior is comfortable, well designed, and more premium than most of its rivals, but it never quite reaches full-luxury levels of comfort.An ionizing interior air cleaner enhances the Encore’s climate-control system, HD radio joins the list of features in the infotainment arena, and last year’s gas cap is ditched in favor of a capless fuel-filling system. A coppery-gold hue called Coppertino Metallic is also new for 2018.

Pros
Intuitive and holistic infotainment suite,
premium interior,
comfortable ride.

Cons
Disappointing fuel economy,
slightly gawky proportions,
limited active safety features.

By:

The 2018 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options.

Pros
Refined interior
Pint-sized dimensions
Good ride quality
Attractive styling inside and out

Cons
Cramped inside
Underpowered base engine
Pricey with options
Lacks some safety tech
