2015 Jeep Renegade vs 2015 Chevrolet Trax near West Palm Beach, FL

The 2015 Renegade is not the first Jeep that resembles a car, but it's the first one to show that Jeep playfulness and styling can translate successfully to a subcompact crossover. Rewarding to drive yet still practical, the Renegade is one of our top picks. The 2015 Chevrolet Trax is worth consideration if you're looking for an affordable suburban runabout that's easy to drive, easy to park and has up-to-date technology features. It's not quick, though, and its interior materials are far from best in class.

2015 Jeep Renegade Power & Handling

The 2015 Jeep Renegade is offered with one of two available engines. The base engine, which is standard in the Sport and Latitude models, is a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission. A nine-speed automatic is optional. Optional for the Sport and Latitude and standard for Limited and Trailhawk models is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. All Renegades can be either front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive except the Trailhawk, which is 4WD only.

2015 Chevrolet Trax Power & Handling

Every 2015 Chevrolet Trax comes with a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. In Edmunds testing, a Trax LTZ with all-wheel drive accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 10 seconds flat. This is about a second slower than similarly sized and purposed small crossovers. Engine performance is also no better than adequate. Although the Trax's small, turbocharged engine offers enough pep for city driving, it's low on punch once you're on the highway, so merging and passing maneuvers require planning and patience.

2015 Jeep Renegade Features & Design

The 2015 Jeep Renegade is a five-passenger subcompact crossover SUV offered in four trim levels. For all Renegades, manually removable sunroofs can be ordered. On the Latitude and Limited, the front sunroof can also be power operated. Keyless ignition and entry is available for the Latitude and Limited, as is a premium nine-speaker audio system. It may be the entry-level Jeep, but the Renegade doesn't feel that way from the driver seat. Most Renegades come pretty well equipped and have soft-touch materials for the dash and armrests.

2015 Chevrolet Trax Features & Design

The 2015 Chevrolet Trax is a five-passenger, subcompact crossover SUV offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels. Each is available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Options are minimal. The LT is offered with a Plus package that includes rear parking sensors, a power driver seat, cloth/leatherette upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as a Sun and Sound package with the Bose audio system and a sunroof. The sunroof is available separately for the LTZ.

Conclusions

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Trax than the Jeep Renegade. The Jeep Renegade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Trax.  With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Trax doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Renegade.
