Used Jeep Renegade For Sale
The Jeep Renegade is a compact SUV that offers excellent off-roading performance alongside a chunky appearance.
Those looking for an SUV that sticks out from the crowd will appreciate the Renegade, which has boxy dimensions and striking design features.
Reasons to consider the Renegade as a used car purchase include:
- Good at off-roading
- Exclusive looks
- Spacious cabin
- Wide range of engine choice
Engines and Driving Experience
Models fitted with four-wheel drive thrive when off-roading. However, the Renegade's driving experience is beaten by the likes of the Ford Puma when used on regular roads. That's because the steering is a bit vague by comparison. Bar that, road and wind noise aren't too intrusive.
Petrol / Hybrid
- 1.0-litre: 118bhp, 0 to 62mph in 11.2 seconds, up to 44.1mpg
- 1.3-litre: 148bhp, 0 to 62mph in 9.4 seconds, up to 42.3mpg
- 1.3-litre: 177bhp, 0 to 62mph in 8.5 seconds, up to 39.9mpg
- 1.3-litre 4xe: 187bhp plug-in hybrid, 0 to 62mph in 7.5 seconds, up to 134.5mpg with batteries fully charged
- 1.3-litre Trailhawk: 237bhp plug-in hybrid, 0 to 62mph in 7.1 seconds, up to 134.5mpg with batteries fully charged
- 1.6-litre: 118bhp, 0 to 62mph in 10.2 seconds, up to 53.1mpg
- 2.0-litre: 168bhp, 0 to 62mph in 8.9 seconds, up to 44.8mpg
Practicality and Running Costs
Although the boxy dimensions may not appeal to everyone, it does translate to a generous amount of headroom inside. Families with younger children shouldn't have too much issue with space in the back. However, taller adults may struggle.
With 351 litres of capacity, the Renegade's boot is big enough for family life. Although, the SEAT Arona has a 400-litre boot, which may appeal if you need more space. Fold the rear seats down and you'll have access to 1,297 litres; more than enough for those with an active lifestyle.
The Renegade resides within insurance groups between 10 and 25 (out of 50). You'll pay a higher premium if you want a four-wheel drive model. Affordable servicing and maintenance is available through all Evans Halshaw dealerships.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Much like the exterior, the cabin has an air of ruggedness about it. Outright quality isn't the best compared to some rivals, but everything feels like it'll stand up to the rigours of family life without much issue.
Equipment levels are generous, with entry level models coming with an infotainment display, satellite navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as automatic climate control. Luxuries, such as front parking sensors and adaptive cruise control, are available on higher-spec models.
Following a retest in 2019, the Renegade went from a 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating to three stars. It still scored highly for adult and child occupant protection, but was let down by the lack of driver assistance systems. However, you'll still get the following safety features:
- Lane departure warning
- Traffic sign recognition
- Rollover mitigation
- ISOFIX anchor points
Is the Jeep Renegade right for me?
If you're looking for a compact SUV that stands out from the crowd, then the Jeep Renegade is worth considering. It doesn't excel in the real world compared to rivals, but it's still relatively practical and efficient, so it's hardly a deal-breaker. If you need a small off-roader, then the Renegade is hard to beat.
There aren't many rivals in this segment of the market if you're after four-wheel drive. If you want a more traditional crossover, then the likes of the Vauxhall Mokka and Renault Captur warrant a look. If you're willing to up your budget, then the MINI Countryman deserves consideration.
