March 9, 2015

The Jeep Renegade is the smallest car in the brand’s range bringing old brand values in a new smaller package.


  • Jeep’s first small SUV
  • Numerous engine options
  • Great off-road ability for adventure lovers

Design and Styling:

Designed in the US and built in Italy; the Jeep Renegade brings traditional value to a new style! The Renegade is characterised as a fun and cheerful small sports utility vehicle featuring tonnes of nifty Jeep touches, a removable My Sky roof and loads more clever design elements that we’ve never seen before in Jeep cars.

Jeep Renegade Side View

At 4.2 metres long the Renegade SUV is based on a heavily adapted Fiat supermini platform and is being manufactured in Italy alongside the forthcoming Fiat 500X. Its boxy design looks like similar to the Kia Soul. It features a gorgeous seven slot nose, squared off wheel arches and bulbous tail lights.


Jeep Renegade Boot SpaceThere is no doubt about; the Renegade offers a fantastic level of passenger space with plenty of head and legroom. The seats are also intensely comfortable.

Its wide and boxy shape with wide opening doors allow passengers to get in and out of the vehicle easily. The boot capacity is 315 litres with the seats up and a whopping 1,297 litres with the seats folded down. Its huge boot opening also makes it easy to load large items.

In terms of safety, Jeep have ensured the Renegade is perfectly safe and has achieved a five star Euro Ncap safety rating which is the highest any vehicle can obtain. The car features a long list of both standard and optional safety features including six airbags, stability control, and tyre pressure monitoring system.


The Jeep Renegade offers plenty of engine choices for buyers including a 1.4 or 1.6 litre Multiair petrol engine and a 1.6 or 2.0 litre Multijet turbo diesel engine. There is also a choice between a six speed manual or a nine speed automatic transmission or a dual clutch six speed gearbox with a choice of two or four wheel drive.

Its 1.6 litre diesel engine is seriously impressive; offering a fuel economy of 61.4 miles per gallon and CO2 emissions of 120 grams per kilometre. It has a top speed of 111 miles per hour and accelerates from 0 to 62 miles in 10.2 seconds.

Both 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrol engines are capable of achieving at least a 47.1 miles per gallon fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions of around 140 grams per kilometre.

To conclude the above points; the Jeep Renegade is cheap to run for an incredibly strong off-roader!
