The Jeep Renegade didn’t go down too well with Jeep purists; however nothing could stop the vehicle from becoming one of the best-sellers in the compact SUV segment. However the Chevrolet Trax has also been selling well, but which is the best choice if you are looking for a compact SUV?
The Jeep Renegade Limited offers the 2.4 litre 4 cylinder engine and it comes with 180 horses and offers 175 torque. The vehicle is able to offer up 29mpg when out on the highway.
The Renegade does enjoy better figures due to the fact that the Chevrolet Trax only offers 138 horses along with 148 torque thanks to the 1.4 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder engine. However for fuel economy it comes out ahead with 31mpg.
The top of the range Chevrolet Trax AWD LTZ has a price tag of around $26, 730 and this means that you can save $200 when compared to the top of the range Jeep Renegade 4WD Limited. But which is the better choice?
If we were looking to purchase a compact SUV our money would go on the Jeep Renegade as it offers up more versatility than the Chevrolet Trax.
