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

Rear-seat legroom is tight for adults
Boxy shape makes for lots of wind noise on the highway

Nine-speed transmission is clunky and easily confused
