The Jeep Renegade has been around for a few years, but it has yet to sell in big enough numbers to feature in our Driver Power owner satisfaction survey. The next best indicator is the 31st-place finish for parent firm Fiat (the Renegade is based on the Fiat 500X's platform) in the 2023 survey. Not a good result, and only one place ahead of MG, which sits flat bottom.

Jeep Renegade 4xe reliability & problems

The Renegade did not feature in our most recent Driver Power survey, nor has the plug-in hybrid version been on sale long enough to uncover any known issues. The Renegade does share plenty of Fiat parts, though that’s not a great sign – as mentioned above, the brand finished 31st out of 32 manufacturers in the most recent 2023 Driver Power results.

Safety

The Renegade was awarded a disappointing three-star Euro NCAP safety rating in 2019, with particularly poor results in the pedestrian and safety assist categories; adult and child occupant protection was rated at 82% and 84% respectively.

The 4xe may address this, however, thanks to a good list of available safety systems. Forward collision warning, lane-departure warning, intelligent speed assist and traffic-sign recognition all feature, along with front and rear parking sensors and LED headlights. A Jeep-first driver-drowsiness detection system is also included.
