Jeep Renegade safety reviews have returned good but not perfect results. The Renegade missed out on a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA, scoring four stars overall and four stars in all other categories. IIHS reviews of the Jeep Renegade aren't that great - just three Good scores, and three low scores: The small overlap front passenger-side test, for which it only managed an Acceptable rating, and the side crash test, which garnered only a Marginal rating. Moderate overlap front crash tests scored Poor, and, disappointingly, the headlights were rated as Acceptable at best and Poor for cheaper models with halogen headlights.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Before ticking off any options, the new Renegade SUV ships with seven airbags, all-speed traction control, electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, hill-start assist, a rearview camera with active grid lines, trailer-sway control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system. Hill-descent control is standard on the off-road-focused Trailhawk.
Fortunately, even the cheapest Renegade at least gets some basic driver-assist technologies fitted as standard. These include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, full-speed forward-collision warning with active braking (on all models besides the Trailhawk), lane-departure warning, and lane-keep assist. Rear park assist and adaptive cruise control are available optionally.

J.D. Power hasn't rated the 2023 model, but the SUV was given an overall rating of 77 out of a possible 100 and 80/100 for quality and reliability for the 2022 model year. At the time of writing, there were no recalls for the 2023, 2022, and 2021 Renegade. 2020 models were recalled twice; once for a fractured right rear brake caliper that can fail, and in another instance for a rearview camera image that can distract the driver by lingering on the display.
Jeep's basic warranty runs for three years or a mileage of 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Also included is a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, roadside assistance for five years or 60,000 miles, and five-year rust-through coverage regardless of miles covered.
