The 2019 Jeep Renegade’s new engine should help this likable crossover SUV use less fuel.

Removable roof panels

Cons
Tight squeeze for four adults

Spartan Sport trim level

The Jeep Renegade receives only minor changes for 2020. All versions come with a new telematics unit and one year of free subscription service that allows owners to remotely lock, unlock, or start the Renegade with the Uconnect smartphone app. Several options, such as 19-inch wheels, the LED Lighting package, the Safety and Security package, and the Advanced Tech package, are now available on lower trim levels.

Pros
Lovable design, comfortable ride, capable off-roading with the Trailhawk.

Cons
Painfully slow, lousy fuel economy, limited storage.

affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.
