2017 Jeep Renegade vs. 2017 Chevrolet Trax: Compare Cars

Two of the highest-volume new entries in the red-hot subcomapct SUV segment are likely to be the Chevrolet Trax and the Jeep Renegade.

Offered by all-American brands, they're smaller than their "compact" siblings, the Chevy Equinox and Jeep Cherokee, respectively. But they offer two very different approaches to designing, packaging, and equipping the smallest all-wheel-drive utility vehicles you can buy from each carmaker.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevrolet Trax may lack power and style, but it's a smart package for city dwellers thanks to a useful hatchback shape, thrifty fuel economy, and a low price. The 2017 Jeep Renegade is the smallest Jeep you can buy, appealing both to commuters and off-roaders, but its design can outshine its performance.
