2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: Unexpected Features
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on October 5, 2015
When it comes to subcompact SUVs like our 2015Jeep Renegade, I don't expect much. Given their size, price range and intended use, I figure as long as they get decent mileage, have useful interiors and comfortable rides, that's all they need. This Renegade has all that and more.
Case in point: a heated steering wheel.
It's part of the Premium package, naturally, and although I've had no need to use it as of late, just seeing the button down there on the dash surprised me. That was once the kind of option you could only get on a mid-range or higher luxury sedan. It makes the heated seats seem expected, enough though these two options used to be considered luxurious.
Our Renegade wasn't exactly cheap, so it's good to see it loaded with features. Even so, there are plenty of competitors that don't even offer its level of equipment no matter how many boxes you check.
