Throughout generations of motoring, four-wheel-drive cars have been applauded for their practicality and reliability. For those in rural areas, a 4x4 vehicle can be essential to getting about, ideal for tackling bad weather and roads that are poorly surfaced.
But that’s not all a four-wheel-drive vehicle has to offer.
An increased ride height is one factor, which draws people to 4x4s, providing improved visibility. Safety records in 4x4 vehicles
are also impressive: the size and shape of the vehicles offering a lot of protection for the driver and other occupants.
Then there’s the added space and practicality – a big bonus for city drivers.
Historically, the drawbacks of driving a 4x4 or SUV on the roads of a town or city were the poor fuel economy,
high tax brackets and the impracticality maneuvering a large vehicle around narrow streets. Enter Jeep’s small SUVs.
With vastly improved fuel economy, reduced emissions and improved agility, drivers enjoy the best of both worlds –
the space and comfort of an all-wheel-drive car, with the handling and economy of a small vehicle.
The Jeep® Renegade and Jeep® Wrangler are pushing the boundaries of what a small 4-wheel-drive car can be. More and more drivers are opting for a style of car, which gives them all the best aspects of a large 4x4 as well as the benefits of a small city car. It’s a compromise
many thought couldn’t work. The success of Jeep’s smaller SUVs tells a different story.
While the Jeep® Wrangler and Renegade are both innovative 4x4s, they are very different vehicles. One nods to the legendary Jeep® heritage; the other takes it places it’s never been before. But one thing is clear: city SUVs like the Renegade and Wrangler are at the forefront of a growing market. One that offers drivers the best of both worlds. No compromise.
