37. JEEP RENEGADE
IF you want Jeep style in a compact package, the Renegade is your pick. This crossover is a bit larger than rivals like Nissan’s Juke, and those boxy lines mean decent cabin space.
But the party piece of this car is the fact it can head further off road than most of its rivals. There are even versions with low-range gears to boost its mud-plugging ability. Better drivers’ cars are available in the class, but the Jeep has appeal. Price range: £18,250-£29,810 Our pick: 2.0 Multijet 140 4WD Longitude (£24,665) Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl diesel, 138bhp Transmission: 6-spd man, permanent 4WD Top speed: 113mph Economy: 55.4mpg CO2: 134g/km
