Nevertheless, the car manages to come off with some stellar specs which you will be able to find out about in this review.

The Renegade is perhaps the smallest Jeep that has been produced by Chrysler, in fact it actually is the smallest jeep that has been mad after World War II. But with its small size the car does offer immense functionality and versatility. Not only is it capable of being a vehicle for everyday use or your daily commuter vehicle, it also managed to come with some rugged numbers and specs which give it a pretty decent off-road package.

The Renegade is also a great opportunity for the American buyers to get a vehicle with jeep characteristics for a price within the 20,000 dollars range, which is rare to find on the US soil these days. The Renegade offers well functionality and driving characteristics that are seen in some smaller SUV vehicle and even goes well beyond them. The fact is the Renegade is one of the better vehicles produced by Chrysler this year and if you take a look at the pictures you will see just why is that. The competition is also gearing up whit models as 2016 Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke, Mazda CX-3 and Buick Encore model.

The Renegade ‘s exterior looks blends tradition with the urban sized characteristics and does better to incorporate some hatchback characteristics than the next step Cherokee car. The profile of the car is well upright but in fact pretty much square but it does come with a bluff front end and a vertical tailgate. It is actually very tall, very slob sided and so upright despite its size which is an amazing feat of engineering. The car has a standard Jeep grille up front with the standard seven slats which are here much more pronounced that in the upper level Cherokee, for instance. The headlamps are rounded and have been etched with a Jeep icon in the lamps. The wheel arches have been designed to be very large and have a trapezoidal shape while both the front end and rear end bumpers look very strong and beefy.

What is an interesting addition to the outside design is that the car has adopted some peculiar additions or in fact some Easter Eggs that can be seen through the whole vehicle. For instance the rear tailgates of the vehicle have an X design that has been directly borrowed from the WWII one which had the same design made to its back side. In the rubber bin pad you can find the map of the Detroit skyline etched inside. For God’s sake, there is even a small Yeti placed by climbing up the edge of the rear window as well. So the design does not make it also workable and appropriate for the car it also makes it fun for the owner to enjoy.

The inside of the 2016 Jeep Renegade has a tougher more robust layout than the one you could have expected to see inside a subcompact car. Everything has adopted this look, the dash, the console the furnishing of the vehicle, everything. Of course the car gets appropriately oversized controls and combines them with the Jeep elements which you have been expecting to see inside a vehicle like this one. The controls are big and round and are also easily understandable. There are two air vents on a pod positioned on the center console which rather remind us of a particular cartoon character, we assume that you will notice which one we mean when seeing this.

Generally speaking the interior of the Renegade is more like a generic but very practical design that does not actually come with a lot of Jeep elements. If there was not all the military inspired texture inside the car and the Jeep logos everywhere, you may have not noticed that this is a jeep at all. This means that the inside is a very good one and something that makes the car useable for a lot of different purposes. The comfort levels are awesome and are pretty high for this type of a vehicle, making the new 2016 Renegade an all-round vehicle which will be on the top of sales lists for this year for certain.

We now come to the engine design of the 2016 Jeep Renegade car which this time comes with a 160-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four, as a base powertrain which also provides 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine option comes with a six-speed manual gearbox and does well for the primary use of the vehicle. But if you want to go a step forward and use something a bit more powerful there is a second engine option added, the 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four, which makes 175 lb-ft of torque  and is used with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. The car does not only come with an all-wheel option but also various kinds of settings for various kinds of extreme conditions. The Trailhawk model, or the highest trim level, packs everything all into one and with an inch taller ground clearance can surpass any obstacle with ease.
