The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.2
5.8
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you need a spacious new vehicle for the tiniest of parking spaces (and budgets), the Trax is an acceptable but mediocre contender. The 2021 Jeep Renegade is the small off-road SUV that doesn’t know how to quit. The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek flexes a more potent available powertrain but still prioritizes safety and capability.
