Jeep enter compact SUV segment with Renegade


Jeep has launched the Renegade, a new compact SUV.

The car includes the new Jeep Active Drive 4x4 system first seen in the Cherokee, and is said to draw inspiration from the 1940's Willys Jeep.

The line-up will include Fiat MultiAir petrol engines, along with MultiJet diesels, with automatic transmission also available.

"The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade expands the brand's product portfolio and targets the rapidly expanding small SUV segment around the globe with benchmark levels of efficiency and driving dynamics, while at the same time delivering best-in-class 4x4 capability that customers expect from Jeep," said Mike Manley, President and CEO - Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.

The vehicle was developed in the USA and Italy, and will be built at Fiat Group's Melfi plant in Central Italy, alongside the forthcoming Fiat 500X.
