Jeep considering Renegade SUV for India

The Jeep Compass was unveiled recently, but that’s not all. They have more in store for India. The company is considering the Renegade SUV which will sit below the Compass and will be the most affordable SUV in the Jeep lineup.

The Jeep Renegade is based on the same platform as the Compass. The 5-seater SUV has bold looks that are inspired by the original Jeep Renegade from the 70s. The round headlights further add to the retro looks. The Renegade with its tall stance has good interior space on offer.

Like other SUVs in the Jeep lineup, the Renegade too has a muscular look to it. Black plastic moldings around the fenders, sills and bumpers complete the rugged package.

The Renegade is expected to use the same engines as the Compass. The 2.0-liter diesel will probably be the more popular followed by a 1.4-liter petrol. A 1.6-liter diesel is also being considered.

The Jeep Renegade should arrive by late 2018 and will rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster.
