Quirky, Not Quite Ugly: Jeep Renegade Vs. Nissan Juke


You either love 'em or hate 'em. There's little to no in between.

This segment seemed to have been created overnight. When the Nissan Juke premiered in 2010, no one was sure what to make of it. Was it a crossover? A hatchback? Or just plain odd? It’s sort of all three, and it’s become a proven sales success. Nissan was clearly on to something there, and its competitors have taken notice. Along with the Kia Soul and the eye-gouge inducing Fiat 500L, Jeep has jumped into the mix with its Renegade.

Yes, it’s based on the same platform as the 500L (there goes an eyeball), but its overall proportions are much more solid. And like the Juke, the Renegade isn’t really ugly, it’s just quirky. Not appealing to everyone we know, but the duo are still well-designed and properly packaged cars for this day and age of maximum interior space packed into the smallest exterior possible. Renegade pricing is expected to start around $18k, about the same as the Juke, and their engine sizes and outputs are also similar.
