2015 Jeep Renegade vs 2015 Nissan Juke
The journey is just beginning for the 2015 Jeep Renegade. The small, light SUV has full-size capability with its blend of contemporary ruggedness. This on and off-road SUV’s livability works well in Denver’s city streets or on the ruggeed trails and winding mountain roads found around Colorado Springs. Simply put, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is equipped for excitement and capable, reliable driving that gets you where you’re going – no matter where you go.
The 2015 Nissan Juke is unique with its rambunctious, edgy style. The Juke stands out from the other crossover models giving buyers strong feelings about the vehicle – either positive or negative. This is a vehicle with a design that people either love or hate. The 2015 Nissan Juke offers many features for the money, but the vehicle lacks in comfort and off-road options.
Traditional versus Futuristic Design
Even the fresh, new 2015 Jeep Renegade exhibits Jeep’s timeless brand styling. The design of the Renegade is both tough and attractive, but the vehicle’s iconic grille gives it away at a moment’s glance – it’s a Jeep, plain and simple. The Renegade’s oversized headlights, rubber-lipped wheel arches, and bumpers also stay true to its time-tested heritage.
The 2015 Nissan Juke’s design is strikingly different from everything. It seems futuristic and certainly unique, with elements that seem ripped straight from spaceships and the Jetsons, and an undeniably bold – or clashing, depending on your tastes – color scheme. This year, the Juke is refreshed with new front and rear fascias plus ‘boomerang’ headlight and taillight designs.
Side by side, the Nissan Juke has a sharp, daring look that will either be loved or hated, and will certainly not be mistaken for any other brand – for better or worse. Meanwhile, the 2015 Jeep Renegade stays true to the Jeep brand with its modern yet timelessly classic look, offering a far more broadly popular appeal without losing any of its standout vibe.
Which Has the More Comfortable, Quiet Ride?
The 2015 Jeep Renegade is surprisingly quiet on the road. Tire noise varies, but there’s no wind noise at speeds of 70 mph or less. The nicely bolstered seats are comfortable to all passengers. The Renegade is wider than other subcompact vehicles giving the two front-seat riders plenty of space, and the rear-seat room is comfortable for two adults. The interior’s materials are mixed with plastic and soft-touch vinyl for comfortable contact.
In the 2015 Nissan Juke, the interior sacrifices comfort for style, being notably cramped and with a stiff, uncompromising ride. Backseat space is extremely tight even for two adults, despite the supposed three seating options. Three children might fit well enough, but not too comfortably. The front seat’s height and backrest are at least adjustable for the driver’s comfort, and head room and knee room are adequate for most adults.
Comparing the two side by side, it’s obvious that with the 2015 Jeep Renegade’s quiet interior and comfortable seating, passengers will be able to travel easier than in the Juke.
Customizable Options and Trims
Whether it’s expected to explore the busy city streets or head out to roam the mountain terrain, the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade is ready, willing and able. Some Renegades might spend most of their time on city and suburban streets, but the Jeep is still very capable off-road. The 2015 Renegade offers a few different trim levels: the base Sport, the mid-level Latitude, and the top-of-the-line Limited. All trims can be ordered with powertrain and with front- or all-wheel drive. Then there’s the Trailhawk trim level with its greater off-road capability which comes packaged with all-wheel drive and a larger 2.4-liter engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. This powerful Jeep can climb steep, gravel mountainside roads and descend at close to 45 degrees in a controllable manner without breaking a sweat.
Another notable option is the Jeep Renegade’s MySky sunroof option, consisting of two entirely removable glass roof panels. The panels fit into a specially tailored bag that slides underneath the rear cargo deck. It’s a great option for drivers that want open air on those sunny summer days, yet want to switch to a secure, cozy ride within minutes if unexpected bad weather hits.
Beyond the array of features, options, packages, and trim items, buyers can choose from ten different equipment groups that include various high-tech features and safety-active features. The options seem endless. allowing buyers to customize their Jeep to tailor their specific needs.
The 2015 Nissan Juke comes in five trims -S, SV, SL, NISMO, and NISMO RS. Buyers can choose from front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. If buyers want a manual transmission they’ll have to forgo AWD. The Juke includes a long list of features, but its trims can’t compete with the Renegrade’s Trailhawk option. The Juke’s NISMO RS tops off the lineup with four-wheel vented disc brakes or a helical limited-slip differential for front-wheel-drive models, but it doesn’t offer buyers off-road performance. The 2015 Jeep Renegade is more customizable to buyers with its off-road capability and long list of features, options, packages, and trim options.
The brand new 2015 Jeep Renegade brings city life into the traditional Jeep. The urban vehicle offers comfort and versatility to its buyers. The Renegade’s trim options give drivers the opportunity to build the Jeep that best fits their personal need. From the streets of Denver to the mountainous terrain of Colorado Springs – the adventures are endless.
