Jeep Renegade India- Features

Just like other compact SUVs in the market, we expect the Renegade to also offer a generous feature list. After all, buyers in the segment of compact SUVs put quite a lot of importance on the number of creature comforts that a particular model has to offer. Hence, this SUV is likely to come with LED projector headlamps, LED daytime running lights, rain sensing wipers, touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, keyless entry, push-button start-stop among other to name a few.

  • LED Projector Headlamps
  • LED Daytime Running Lights
  • LED Tail-lamps
  • Automatic Headlamps
  • Rain-Sensing Wipers
  • Touchscreen Infotainment System
  • Automatic Climate Control
  • Multi-Functional Steering Wheel
  • Cooled Glove Box
  • Rear Air-Con Vents
  • Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Keyless Entry
  • Push Button Start Stop

Jeep Renegade India- Safety Features

In addition to having an impressive feature list, the Renegade, in-line with new safety regulations, will also have a whole array of safety kit on board as well. This means that as a standard, it will offer dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors and other safety features. In addition to this, range-topping models might even come with Electronic Stability Program, Traction Control, Hill Assist and Hill Descent control among other features.

  • Dual Front Airbags
  • Side and Curtain Airbags
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Force Distribution
  • Electronic Stability Program
  • Traction Control

Jeep Renegade India- 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 India- 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 Indian market remains to be seen. We expect the India-spec model to get a more conventional analogue dial set up for the instrument console. Also, the panoramic sunroof might not make it to India.  There is no 7 seater version, not even abroad. Much like the Compass, even the Renegade will offer 5 seats only.

  1. Hope to see this launched in India. With a pricing of 14 lacs would be formidable competition to the likes of Duster, Creta et all. Along with the wonderful 1.6 l s-cross engine would be a great small “soft” SUV. Bring it on Jeep.

  2. That’s an impossible price tag… It costs more than 16-17 lakhs in UK market and a minimum of 12lakhs even in US. Adding the taxes, it can never be launched south of 20lakhs minimum… In India.

  3. Equipping Renegade with AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION,will be of advantage both to Manufacturer and Jeep enthusiasts.

  4. […] The 2017 Jeep Compass is finally in India. The latest Jeep offering has been in news ever since the iconic SUV maker first revealed its plans to launch the Compass in our country. With the launch finally taking place, the new model becomes the cheapest Jeep SUV in India. Prices of the new model start at Rs 14.95 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 20.65 lakh. The rather aggressive pricing has been achieved through local manufacturing, which takes place at the company’s Ranjangaon facility. At this price range, the Compass goes on to rival everything from a top-end Mahindra XUV500 to the entry-level models of Toyota Fortuner. Thanks to a modern design, powerful engines, many features and a high brand value of the Jeep badge,  there seem to be enough reasons to buy Jeep Compass. Read on for to find out how this car’s India Price List, Features, Specifications and Exterior and Interior offer strong reasons to buy Jeep Compass.Also See – Upcoming SUVs in India | Jeep Renegade Small SUV […]

  5. If launching will be at end of 2018 ,there will not be any juice remain in 12 to15 lac category of market for Jeep .

  6. Pricing has to be very competitive, now being creta as the leader in this segment Jeep has to keep this in mind and has to offer the pricing just below creta on all variants . Along that we knew that Suzuki vitara in also on the cards for its India launch in early 2018 so things will be much interesting for buyers fall in 10 to 15 lac segment

  7. It’s too much hipe I believe the Renegade cannot compatite with maruti Breeza and ford EcoSport and creta on price level

  8. Hello jeep company I’m fan in jeep brand pls including in promonic sunroof jeep compass & renegade with sunroof pls im waiting in jeep with promonic sunroof pls pls pls pls sir I’m really interested in jeep I’m 3 year ago searching in jeep & waiting

  9. JEEP RENEGADE’S ” MY SKY ” IS AN INTELLIGENT & SMART TECHNOLOGY BY JEEP…….THEY SHOULD BRING IT TO FOR INDIAN CUSTOMERS TO BUILD THEIR IMAGE IN INDIA….I’AM WAITING FOR IT’S LAUNCH IN INDIA AS MY DAUGHTER LOVES IT…..

  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 India (-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.
