2023 Jeep Renegade Interior and Cargo

Jeep Renegade Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 Renegade Interior

Like the exterior, the Renegade's cabin has enough unusual shapes and touches to keep things interesting, such as the sturdy grab handle ahead of the front passenger. The materials are about average for the class, which means a mix of soft-touch plastics and some harder edges dotted around the interior. Generally, there is a decent amount of space on offer, the only issue being rear legroom for taller passengers. Dual-zone automatic climate control is standard across the lineup. The upholstery ranges from simple cloth at the lower end of the range to premium leather for the most expensive versions. The infotainment system is 8.4 inches in size on all trims this year.

Seating and Interior Space

For those who never venture into the rear of the cabin, the Renegade feels absolutely massive. The upright dash and windscreen design paired with the deep glasshouse gives the impression that this is a much larger vehicle, with an abundance of shoulder room and frontal head- and legroom measurements of up to 41.1 inches (without the sunroof) and 41.2 inches respectively. But the seats lack support, and when the soft suspension is factored in, occupants may be looking for more assistance when roads get rough. Sadly, hopping into the rear of the cabin results in an altogether different experience, and while the broad-opening doors make ingress and egress easy, the capacious front half of the cabin means that rear occupants are left with just 35.1 inches of legroom. Headroom is more than ample at 40.5 inches, but the seating position in the back is awkward and impractical, and not comfortable on long journeys. Nevertheless, the width of the cabin means seating five in total is a fairly achievable target.

Interior Colors and Materials

Material quality inside the Renegade is generally on par for the subcompact segment, but it's not at all what one might consider to be high quality. A mix of hard and soft-touch plastics is present, with the harder plastics generally given a satin finish borrowed from the larger Cherokee, albeit available in a range of colors so you can match the center console to your exterior paint choice on certain trims.

In terms of upholstery finishes, the base model starts off with cloth available in only black. Altitude trims get deluxe cloth, but the same ebony color. (RED) models have black deluxe cloth but feature Ski Gray stitching, while the top-of-the-line Trailhawk retains cloth in black, but with Ruby Red stitching. It also features a topographic map design to highlight its adventurous nature. It can be upgraded to premium leather with Ruby Red stitching as well. From the Limited, it's all leather and all black.

2023 Renegade Trunk and Cargo Space

With the rear seats in their normal position, the Renegade has 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space. This would be good for a sedan, but in an SUV, it's only average. It's much the same story when folding down the rear seats, which frees up an unremarkable 50.8 cubes. Lower trims have a 60/40-split rear seat, while only higher-spec models get a more practical 40/20/40-split rear seat design. Not helping matters is the cargo hold's narrow width and high floor, but fortunately, the aperture is broad and square, which makes loading large items easier than the limited space might suggest.

In the cabin, storage for small items is a bit better, with well-sized door bins and a practical center console. A locking glovebox, seatback pockets (on higher trims), and cupholders that are a decent size round out the storage solutions.

2023 Renegade Infotainment and Features


More functional than opulent, the entry-level Renegade gets features like cruise control, push-button ignition, halogen headlights, power-adjustable and heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, two 12-volt auxiliary power outlets, a six-way manually-adjustable driver's seat, and a manually tilting/telescoping steering wheel with integrated audio controls. The pricier trims have increased availability of features, more standard equipment, or both, with amenities such as a heated steering wheel, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Jeep equipped more standard safety gear last year like lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. The rear backup camera includes helpful active grid lines.


The Renegade's infotainment makes use of one available system on all trims this year - an 8.4-inch touchscreen display running Uconnect 4C NAV, replacing the seven-inch system on low-line trims used last year. It includes Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an AM/FM radio, HD Radio, GPS navigation, and SiriusXM Traffic Plus with a comprehensive five-year trial subscription. All models get a rather tinny six-speaker sound system by default but a nine-speaker Kenwood premium sound system is available on upper trims. The Uconnect system is generally one of the best to quickly fathom.
