This is a bit different, isn’t it? Think of Jeep, and you think of big, tough 4x4s.

The Renegade offers more of the same but in a smaller size. And there are two-wheel-drive versions for SUV looks with lower running costs.

We’re testing the 2.0-litre diesel automatic with four-wheel drive. Limited-spec cars are comprehensively equipped, but toys come at a price: £28,295 is a lot for a car of this size and power.

So, what tow car ability does the Jeep Renegade have? Is it good enough to justify its high price?

It’s not the biggest or heaviest 4×4 you can buy for similar money. Are the Jeep’s off-road ability, rugged image and long list of standard kit enough to compensate?
