Jeep Renegade Facelift World Launch Soon: Here Is Everything You Need To Know About the Hyundai Creta Rival


The Jeep Renegade SUV is confirmed to launch in World. We are estimating a launch timeline for 2019. Primary rival is going to be the Hyundai Creta. Hence prices will fall in the range of INR 9 lakh to 15 lakh.

Jeep World has plans to introduce an all-new entry-level SUV in their product portfolio. Internationally, this model is already on sale and is called the Renegade. Just like the Compass, which seems to be a smaller derivative of the bigger Grand Cherokee, the Renegade seems to take its inspiration from the Wrangler. However, it is a completely different utility vehicle underneath as it uses the American automaker’s small wide 4×4 platform. This mid-cycle version of this SUV is expected to make its debut internationally by the end of this year. Consequently, we expect it to reach Worldn shores in the first half of 2019. We estimate that Jeep is going to locally produce this SUV. This will help in keeping the prices low and aggressive.

Jeep Renegade World Spy Images

The upcoming cheaper-than-Compass SUV from Jeep will go on to rival everything from a Renault Duster and entry-level Hyundai Creta models to the Mahindra Scorpio. As you can see in the spy images that follow, testing of this SUV is already underway in World. While the exterior of the new model looks sufficiently rugged and has the distinct Jeep identity, the interior looks world-class and borrows many design cues from other models in the family. The interior of the World-spec model will get a 6.5-inch UConnect touchscreen infotainment system that offers smartphone connectivity, park assist, and satellite navigation among other features. Even the Renegade for World will have top-notch plastic quality and the option pack on the top-end trim will include bits like leather upholstery.

Jeep Renegade Exterior Design

The Renegade borrows plenty of design features from its siblings. It gets Jeep’s signature seven-slot front grille along with the squarish box-design. You also get circular headlights, boxed out wheel arches, squarish tail-lamps and prominent body cladding all around. There are modern design touches too, including the roof-rails, the glass-area on the sides and the rear.

The Jeep Renegade is not a full-fledged SUV, so do not expect it to go rock crawling or mud bogging or dune-bashing. It will get an AWD drive system which can detect road surfaces and adjust torque sent to all wheels for best grip in different situations, but the vehicle ride height restricts it to mild off-roading at best.

Jeep Renegade Interior Design

On the inside, you get a Uconnect infotainment system inside the car which gets a 5-inch or a 6.5-inch touchscreen display depending upon the region. The driver gets a 7-inch display unit which can be configured and the same will double up as an instrument cluster as well. You get a panoramic sunroof and the SUV will get a slew of customisation options as well for the accessories. How much of it makes it to the Worldn market remains to be seen. We expect the World-spec model to get a more conventional analogue dial set up for the instrument console. Also, the panoramic sunroof might not make it to World.  There is no 7 seater version, not even abroad. Much like the Compass, even the Renegade will offer 5 seats only.

Other features that the World-spec model will offer include a 3.5-inch TFT instrument panel, leather steering wheel, automatic climate control, cruise control, and rear parking sensors. The Renegade is a strict 5-seater and there is no 7-seater version on sale anywhere. The upcoming cheapest Jeep SUV in World shares the FCA Small Wide 4X4 platform with the new Compass. Many design bits will come from other models in the Jeep line-up.

  10. If the present price of Compass is taken as the reference point. Then taking into account the lower tax slab for the renegade (-14%), cost comparison of compass and the renegade abroad (-14%) and the smaller version of the renegade in World (-5%). The basis model price would be around 11.3 Lacs, but then to be a segment killer needs the base price at 9.99 Lacs.
