INTERIOR

For such a small car, the 2019 Jeep Renegade is impressively roomy inside. There’s more than enough headroom for taller folks, though they might find an issue with the limited legroom when sitting behind another tall passenger. The My Sky panels are more interesting in theory than execution. The Renegade offers average materials quality for a segment filled with mostly impressive cabins. Even hard plastics don’t look especially cheap, while the soft-touch dash and solid switchgear make the cabin look and feel appropriate for its price.

The Renegade compact cabin ensures that everything upfront is easy to reach, from the big, simple climate controls to the touchscreen and the 4WD terrain selector. Headroom is excellent for the segment. The ample range of seat adjustment provides superior front legroom. Backseat legroom is largely dependent on the front-seat position, which is typical for the segment. Fitting a rear-facing child seat would be difficult.

The seating position is rather upright in the 2019 Jeep Renegade boxy cabin, but the optional eight-way power driver’s seat and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel ensure a wide range of drivers will be able to find their ideal settings. It’s comfortable for daily commuting as well as off-roading. The upright windshield provides a broad view ahead. The big mirrors and a rearview camera are appreciated while parking, as are the Renegade’s overall square dimensions. Lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring are optional.

Measured from front to back, the 2019 Jeep Renegade isn’t very long, but for its class it is pretty tall and wide, which gives it some useful interior dimensions. The boxy shape and tall cabin mean lots of headroom and three-across seating is possible thanks to the exceptional width. Up front there’s plenty of legroom, but adults will be a little cramped in the rear. Behind the second row, the Renegade has 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Lowering those seats will give you 50.8 cubes to work with. These are respectable numbers, though vehicles such as the Honda HR-V or Kia Soul wagon offer even more.
