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: 
usnews.com

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 T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

By:

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value
