Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Wrangler Hard Top is now in its fourth generation, but its exterior has looked pretty similar for a while now. It recently received an update to include a bold seven vertical-slat grille, LED round headlights, and chunky wheel arches.

The Wrangler Hard Top is available in two different forms, a two-door and a much longer four-door. Interior space in the two-door is limited, with only two rear seats. Upgrade to the four-door, and you get an extra rear seat and much more leg and headroom throughout the cabin.

Boot space is 203 litres on the two-door and 598 litres on the four-door. You can fold down the rear seats on both versions to increase luggage space. There's also a hidden storage area under the floor that's designed to keep your expensive gear hidden from view.

Interior and Trims

The Wrangler Hard Top is designed for the outdoors, so the inside focuses more on build quality than luxury. Jeep has also planned for the interior to get dirty, so most surfaces can easily be cleaned. Even so, there are some nice touches, such as stitched leather wrappings for the steering wheel and door handles.  

An 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes as standard with a DAB radio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and navigation. The screen is responsive and displays sharp graphics making it easy to read when driving off-road.

All versions also get a seven-inch digital instrument cluster that allows the driver to tailor the setting and graphics to their preference. The screen displays the navigation providing easy access to road directions.

Three trims are available: Sahara, Overland, and Rubicon.

Sahara kicks off the lineup with 18-inch aluminium wheels, halogen headlights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, deep tint sunscreen glass, a Parkview rear back-up camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and brake assist.

Overland adds 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a hard-top headliner.

Rubicon comes with 17-inch polished wheels with black pockets, leather-trimmed bucket seats in black with red accent stitching and Rubicon logo, ambient LED lighting interior, rock rails, Tru-Lok® differentials, and a body-coloured front grille with silver grille throats & headlight rings.

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre petrol engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission to power all four wheels.

It returns a power output of 272bhp, accelerates from 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds, and returns a fuel economy of 25.7mpg. It's a strong unit that delivers acceleration from low down in the rev range, which is great when off-roading.

Jeep Wrangler Hard Top interior

The Wrangler Hard Top is an out-and-out off-roader and can tackle most surfaces thanks to its four-wheel drive, low-range gears, and various high-tech off-road hardware. Its soft suspension allows a lot of wheel movement, which is great for tackling rocks or small gauges.

The Wrangler Hard Top's off-road capabilities come at the cost of its on-road performance. When driving, it bounces on the road regardless of the surface, and the steering is very slow and light, meaning you really have to slow down when approaching a tight bend.

Leasing vs Buying

Prices for the new Jeep Wrangler Hard Top start from £57,160.00 OTR* or to lease from £751.47 per month.

Gary Jeep Wrangler Hard Top 2.0 Night Eagle 4dr Auto8

You buy a wrangler jeep with your heart and not your head, Fuel economy is not great and on road handling is not great but it's the smile it puts on your face every time you get behind the wheel. Off road and in the snow it is second to not many. The admiring looks and comments you get from total strangers is great and the waves from other wrangler drivers makes you feel good. It looks awesome and is as easy to drive off road and in the snow as it is on a supermarket shopping trip. After a year of ownership I still smile whenever I am driving the wrangler and I still look back at it every time I park up.
