Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 17 - 21 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

High fuel consumption, insurance and servicing costs. Depreciation is savage. But it's sturdily built, so there shouldn't be too many trips to the dealer.

The Wrangler’s 4.0-litre powerplant returns just 21mpg, so it's no surprise that it performs very badly on the eco front. It emits 322 g/km CO2, which is high, even for a 4x4. To put this into perspective, other small off-roaders of similar size would typically emit just over 200 g/km CO2.

Tough and rugged, proven by decades of development with strong engines. Interior is basic and the plastics are chunky, so there should be few problems. Over-enthusiastic off-roading will be the only worry.
