INTERIOR

The Wrangler Unlimited is rugged, with an extra side of rugged, and its interior is sturdy and can take a beating. If you can't get those Freedom Top panels on in time to beat the rain, a little won't hurt the interior. Likewise, melted chocolate and spilled drinks wiped off with ease. Not that I actually experienced this

I'm just saying that if somebody happened to make a mess in the Jeep, there'd be few worries.

The seating is stiff, but I didn't mind them because this is a Jeep and should feel like it's rough and tough. Besides, I got so distracted by the fun drive and the amazing sound system blasting my favorite tunes that I didn't pay much attention to the seats. However, over the course of my test week I could see how a person might tire of them.

The Wrangler Unlimited has some lockable storage, which would be handy when the soft-top has been removed. The center console locks and you can get a couple items in there like a wallet, a cell phone or whatever. If you're carrying a lot of valuables I recommend you leave the doors and the soft-top on.

As for other interior amenities, this SUV has two front cupholders and two rear cupholders that sit on the floor on the back of the center console. This location wasn't a big deal for my big kids, but smaller kids could become bummed out when they can't reach them.

You also might be bummed out at the cargo space in the Wrangler Unlimited. You'll have to be conscientious of what you put back there. Don't be surprised if you have to pare down a little. There's a 60/40-split folding backseat if you need some extra cargo room.
