Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Jeep Renegade has a score of 75, implying a 0.048% chance of driver death (4.3% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.041%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.7%.

We estimate that the 2021 Jeep Renegade has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0482% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.4999%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0482% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.4999% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Jeep Renegade is 3% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2021 Jeep Renegade is 18% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

Jeep's ProTech I active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. Active safety systems that are standard on the Jeep Renegade include: Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection.

Other safety technologies seem simpler but should still be considered. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Jeep Renegade. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps points head lamps towards where the vehicle is heading, better lighting the road ahead.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
