60sec road test

The world is downsizing, and so is Jeep. Hence the new Renegade, here just in time as demand for smaller crossovers is soaring. They’ve done a good job of twinning this with the equally strong 500X from sister brand Fiat; they look quite different and both strike a nice balance between on-road manners and some off-road pluck. While most European rivals will shrivel up and hide when the going gets rough, this car warrants its Jeep badge. The Fiat-sourced engines are generally strong and powerful, with just enough emphasis on tax and emissions to keep your bank manager happy.
