"Best-in-class interior space and clever, functional storage areas"

The Jeep Renegade marked a series of firsts in the company’s history...

 

It was Jeep’s first entry into the small SUV segment, the first Fiat Chrysler Automobiles car to be jointly developed by Italian and American engineers and the first Jeep to be built in Europe but sold in the USA. It was the first small SUV to feature a nine-speed gearbox, the first in its segment to have rear axle disconnect and the first in its segment to boast a seven-inch full colour multi-view display in its instrument binnacle.

There is an array of advanced safety features including Forward Collision Warning Plus with Crash Mitigation which automatically prevents or reduces the impact in low-speed shunts

 

The Renegade combines best-in-class off-road ability with world-class on-road driving dynamics. Inside, functional details crafted from high quality materials and using innovative colours ensure the Renegade becomes a polished addition to its owners’ lives. It’s a practical one too, courtesy of best-in-class interior space and clever, functional storage areas.

Equipment has been designed to boost on-board comfort. Advanced technology includes the intuitive Uconnect touchscreen for infotainment with a choice between 5 and 6.5-inch screens. A wide range of options includes the kind of open air freedom that until now has been unavailable in the small SUV class. The unique-to-segment My Sky sunroof has two lightweight panels that can be easily removed and stowed in the boot for a truly panoramic open-air experience.

There is an array of advanced safety features including Forward Collision Warning Plus with Crash Mitigation which automatically prevents or reduces the impact in low-speed shunts; ParkSense Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist that automatically parks the car; LaneSenseTM Lane Departure Warning Plus; and Adaptive Cruise Control.

The Jeep Renegade is available in 11 colours with six wheel designs and six powertrain combinations, each of which offers a combination of efficiency and performance. There are two MultiAir II petrol engines, a pair of MultiJet II turbo diesels and the 1.6-litre eTorque petrol. There are also five and six-speed manual gearboxes, the Dual Dry Clutch Transmission and the nine-speed automatic gearbox.

Available with two or four-wheel drive the Renegade boasts two new, advanced 4x4 systems: Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low.

The Jeep Renegade range has four trim levels; Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk…each one oozing the same sense of adventure and individuality that Jeeps are famous for. Once again, Jeep impress…so that’s not a first.
