What other vehicles did you (actually) consider?

I was just curious what other vehicles people considered when they bought the Renegade, or while they are still in the process of deciding. There are a lot of "vs." threads and discussions, here and elsewhere, but do Renegade shoppers also consider cars like the Soul and HRV that keep getting compared with the Renegade? Was it a choice between the Renegade and something larger? Or did some of you not even go shopping for other cars?

For me, hearing about the Renegade last year is what set me shopping for a car in the first place. While I was waiting for them to show up on dealer lots, I started considering these:

Ford Escape--Probably would not have been interested in it, but the end of 2014 models were so temptingly priced.
Jeep Cherokee--liked everything about it except the exterior appearance.
Subaru Forester--liked it a lot on paper but just couldn't get enthusiastic about driving it.

Test drove a 2016 Rogue SV, looked nice but seemed slow and it was boring. Tested a 2015 Nissan Juke Nismo 6spd, too small and not nearly as quick and sporty as it looked and not in the greatest condition. That car was a serious disappointment. Lastly, before my purchase I test drove a 2016 Renegade Latitude, had power MySky and Beats audio but it was not in the greatest condition so I passed. But it drove the best so I ended up buying a new 75th Edition because of $7k off in discounts/incentives!
