Even when many of us crave high-end luxury cars or zippy two-seat convertibles, we often have to buy something less expensive or more sensible. But some brands can pull at our heartstrings while still offering practical, affordable transportation. In particular, we’re thinking of Jeep, the storied maker of off-road-ready, on-road-useful crossovers and SUVs.
Take the Renegade, the least expensive Jeep on the market. This subcompact crossover is bursting with iconic Jeep flavor, from its classic yet cheeky exterior design to its authentic all-wheel-drive capability. But with its 51 cubic feet of cargo space and a base price of just $22,025, the Renegade easily can fit into your life. The 2019 Renegade also is newly updated with a more fuel-efficient engine and other upgrades.
