Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

While Jeep Renegade safety hasn't been evaluated by the experts at crash-testing organisation Euro NCAP, we're expecting an excellent score when it finally goes through the tests.

There is a vast array of safety kit installed, and judging by other cars recently evaluated, the Renegade should score extremely well indeed. It's even got systems which usually get 'brownie points' in the tests on top of the official rating.

As standard you get six airbags and ABS, traction control, an automatic de-fogging system for the front windscreen, stability control, hill-start assist, keyless entry and start, a windscreen wiper de-icing function, a tracking system, voice control for the stereo and tyre-pressure monitors.

On top of all that, the car is made from extremely strong yet lightweight metals, which means it's highly rigid and thus less likely to buckle in the event of an accident.

The 351-litre square boot is large and accessible enough to warrant a decent review of Jeep Renegade practicality, but it's the cabin where this car really shines.

There's a huge amount of room inside thanks to the car's square dimensions, meaning even those over six feet won't be left wanting for headroom in the back. Only when the front seats are jammed back against the stops does knee room become a slight problem, but the space this opens up in front means you'd need a car full of huge folk to really suffer in this respect.

You have a number of cup/bottle holders dotted around the cabin and a large glovebox that'll store belongings out of sight.

Further to this is the adaptable boot floor, which features a moveable shelf which can be placed in a number of positions depending on what you need to carry in the rear. Another nice touch is how wide the doors open. It makes access nice and simple, which is bound to appeal to families.
