The Renegade, which Jeep introduced in 2015, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. The Jeep Renegade packs some potency, exceeding the average horsepower for its class. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it handles mud, snow, and sand with ease. Jeep offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 Jeep Renegade is below average compared to all vehicles.

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 2022 Jeep Renegade has a score of 76, implying a 0.047% chance of driver death (4.2% 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 3.6%.

We estimate that the 2022 Jeep Renegade has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0472% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.3893%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0472% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.3893% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Jeep Renegade is 1% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Jeep Renegade is 16% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2022 Jeep Renegade offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features with Jeep's ProTech I greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. 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.

Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but others may also improve safety. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
