2016 Jeep Renegade vs. Its Competition

2016 Jeep Renegade 75th Anniversary edition

The Jeep Renegade has an engaging look and Jeep bona fides.

It's the most rugged vehicle in a class that includes the slightly larger, hatchback-derived Subaru XV Crosstrek, a smash hit with standard AWD, rugged durability, and the ground clearance to handle light off-roading.

The style-over-function priority also applies to the MINI Cooper Countryman as well, despite its available AWD.

It's also notably pricier than the Jeep.

The Chevy Trax is similarly upright and functional but doesn't have the Jeep cachet or friendly face.

New entries for the 2016 model year include the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3.

The Honda offers excellent fuel economy, ride quality, and space usage, while the Mazda has crisp road manners and attractive styling.

Quick Specs
7.6
The 2016 Jeep Renegade has something to please both off-roaders and commuters, but its performance can seem dull compared to its engaging styling.
7.6
With its useful hatchback shape and thrifty fuel economy, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax is a smart package for city dwellers who value practicality over power or style.
7.8
The 2016 Honda HR-V smartly trades a little of the Fit's fuel economy for exuberant styling, more headroom, and optional all-wheel drive.
8.0
The 2016 Mazda CX-3 is stylish, well-equipped, and one of the most fun-to-drive vehicles in its segment.
7.8
The 2016 Mini Counryman retains a fair amount of the Mini character and fun-to-drive spirit, but a growing crop of small crossovers give it more competition than ever.
