The 2020 Jeep Renegade is a small crossover SUV, so it’s made to do two things at the same time, carry a few people, and store a decent amount of cargo. It’s small enough to be considered a subcompact crossover SUV, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossibly small. It can hold more cargo than a subcompact sedan and will feel more comfortable than a subcompact sedan due to its height and SUV-style configuration. Read on below for some measurements of this vehicle and how much you can fit inside it.
How Much Cargo Space does the 2020 Jeep Renegade Have?
Let’s use the Sport trim as an example for now, as that is the lowest trim level and most other trims measure the same way. With the seats in place, you can fit a total of 18.5 cubic feet of cargo behind the back row. That’s just over half a cubic meter.
That space can be expanded, of course. By folding down the second row of seats, you can access a total of 50.8 cubic feet for cargo. That translates to about 1.4 cubic meters, so it’s plenty enough for a big grocery trip, provided you don’t need anyone to sit in the back. The seats are easy to fold and set back up too, so don’t be afraid to maximize your cargo space to make carrying cargo a breeze.
Does the 2020 Jeep Renegade Have a Liftgate?
For ease of access to the cargo space, the Jeep Renegade has a traditional liftgate like what you would find on most other SUVs. There’s no hidden handle like on some SUVs, you can find it positioned just under the license plate at a convenient height. The liftgate includes the wide back window and a single short windshield wiper. Most will find the liftgate easier to work with than a side-opening gate, especially when multiple people are loading up the back of the vehicle at a time.
