Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Jeep showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different statures and to those sat in different positions, whose kness might strike the dashboard at different locations. All parts of the passenger dummy were well protected in the frontal test. in the side impact, the Renegade scored maximum points, with good protection of all critical body regions. Even in the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body areas was good. Protection against whiplash in the event of a rear-end collision was rated as marginal for both the front and rear seating positions. The Renegade has an optional autonomous braking system which operates from low speeds, typical of city driving. As the system is not standard, its low-speed functionality did not qualify for inclusion in this part of the assessment.

Child occupant

The front passenger seat can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Renegade is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.


The bumper scored maximum points, showing good protection of pedestrians' legs at all test locations. However, the protection provided by the front edge of the bonnet to the pelvis was predominantly weak or poor. The bonnet showed good protection of a pedestrian's head over most of its surface and was adequate elsewhere. Only on the stiff windscreen pillars were poor results recorded.

Safety assist

The Renegade has electronic stability control as standard equipment, together with a seatbelt reminder that protects the front and rear seats. A driver-set speed limitation device is also standard and met Euro NCAP's requirements for systems of this type. An autonomous emergency braking system is an option. The system operates from the low speeds typical of city driving to the higher speeds found on the open road. As it is expected to be fitted to most cars sold its higher-speed functionality was included in the assessment and was found to perform well. A lane-assistance system is available as an option on the Renegade but was not included in the assessment as it is not expected to meet Euro NCAP's fitment requirements.
