Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

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
