Default Renegade Trailhawk

The JEEP Renegade Trailhawk is now in Aussie showrooms....

2.4L engine, 134kW / 237Nm, 1621kg, 9 speed auto, 7.8 litres/100km claimed, 8.4L/100km average (source: caradvice).

Impressive 4wd system, Lo Range, crawler gear, 220mm clearance. Approach, departure and breakover angles are 31 degrees, 34 degrees and 26 degrees respectively.

Could it be a Subaru beater?
Possibly in an out-of-the-box comparison. However, some of our modded Subies would easily show it a thing or two. Then you have to wonder about reliability. I wonder how these things will be going in 15 years with 200,000km on them. Surely not as well as well as some of ours.

I still kinda like it though.
I'd love to see an off road comparison with a Forester.
"Ridge" the Forester GT - 3" turbo dump - 5MT - Paranoid 1" lift + 30mm Raised King Springs & KYBs.
