The Renegade finally gives Jeep a subcompact model with wide appeal—thanks to Although Jeep notes that the Patriot and Compass crossovers are a half-size larger, we think that these two models are going to be crossing paths somewhat, in pricing.

Compared to the Mini Clubman, the Jeep should be priced much lower—and it looks like it will offer more useful space.

The Nissan Juke is lower and sportier, although its overall footprint is about the same, as should be its entry price.

Those who want a slightly more carlike vehicle with almost as much rugged ability should consider the Subaru XV Crosstrek, which will likely handle a bit better than the Renegade—although the Subaru has a limited feature set and refinement is lacking.

Those wanting more of a city vehicle and not caring about off-road ability might consider the Kia Soul, which builds a boxy body over economical car underpinnings.

Quick Specs
The 2015 Renegade is Jeep’s ace card—a stylish, affordable small crossover that carries on the brand’s rugged mission, but with an eye to the city; it’s chunky, cheeky and doesn’t look cheap.

The 2014 Nissan Juke is part oddball, part exotic, and part awesomely different (although not all that practical) small car.
