There is a new Jeep on South African market and at first glance, it looks particularly interesting. It’s noticeably smaller than any other Jeep, and noticeably “cuter” – especially given the colour palette available, which seems to have been borrowed from the company that makes Skittles. In this video, we’ve picked ten of things about the new Jeep Renegade that you need to know about, covering the engine, interior, build quality and a few little surprises that Jeep have built into the car as standard. We’ll be using this space to go into detailed comparisons with this car’s rivals. Here at Cars.co.za, we were all unexpectedly surprised by the new Renegade. The build quality is impressive and overall, as a package, it is an attractive urban car. But the pricing is, shall we say, challenging. With the range starting at R340 990, the car is priced quite priced above a few of its key rivals, even overlapping bigger cars in the next segment, such as the Toyota Rav4, which starts at R311 000. The car featured in the video is the 1.4 T Limited Launch Edition, which at the time of writing, features SatNav, leather upholstery and those rather nice 18 inch wheels included as freebies in the price of R375 990. We’ll use this car for comparisons below. We’ve chosen the Mini Countryman and Subaru XV, as both cars are roughly equally sized and offer that rugged, I-might-actually-go-offroad feeling. See a detailed comparison of the three cars below, here: http://bit.ly/jeep_renegade_comparison Interested in a new Jeep Renegade? http://www.cars.co.za/newcars/Jeep/Renegade/1.4L-T-Limited-Launch-Edition/ Jeep Renegade vs Rivals - Specs Jeep Renegade 1.4 T Limited Launch Edition vs Mini Cooper S Countryman Price R375 990 R393 988 Engine 1.4T 1.6T Power/Torque 103kW/230Nm 140kW/240Nm Fuel economy 6.0 l/100km 6.6 l/100km Acceleration 10.9 seconds 7.5 seconds Top Speed 181 km/h 216km/h Boot space 351/1297 350/1170 PDC Rear Optional Bluetooth Yes Yes SatNav Yes Optional Leather Yes Yes Airbags 6 6 Jeep Renegade 1.4 T Limited Launch Edition vs Nissan Qashqai 1.6T Acenta Price R375 990 R364 800 Engine 1.4T 1.6 turbo petrol Power/Torque 103kW/230Nm 120kW/240Nm Fuel economy 6.0 l/100km 6.2 l/100km Acceleration 10.9 seconds 9.1 seconds Top Speed 181 km/h 200 km/h Boot space 351/1297 430/1585 PDC Rear Optional Bluetooth Yes Yes SatNav Yes Optional Leather Yes Optional Airbags 6 6
Think about any SUV TV commercial from two decades ago. Chances are it featured a blocky truck tearing through muddy puddles along a wooded trail while promising go-anywhere capability. However, most people don't traipse through underbrush on their way to work, and automakers have increasingly favored the on-road experience. But all is not lost for weekend adventurers. The 2018 Jeep Renegade proves you can have comfort and genuine off-road performance in a single, relatively affordable small SUV package.
The Renegade's off-road abilities make it unique in the rapidly growing subcompact SUV class, especially in Trailhawk guise. Its all-terrain tires, increased ride height and low-range four-wheel drive make it the gem in the lineup if you're ready to get a little dirty. Even the trims that aren't trail-rated — from the fire sale-priced Sport to the luxe Limited — can venture off the beaten path more comfortably than rivals.
But the Renegade isn't just for those looking to conquer the great outdoors. With the exception of the Trailhawk (its tires make the ride quite bumpy), the smallest Jeep is downright pleasurable to drive on the road. We think it's one of the standouts in the segment, whether you're keeping the tires on asphalt or trudging through mud.
The Jeep Renegade receives a handful of infotainment updates for 2018. A rearview camera, a 5-inch touchscreen and a six-speaker audio system are all now standard. New, upgraded 7- and 8.4-inch touchscreens now include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. All touchscreens are loaded with the newest version of Jeep's Uconnect infotainment system.
The 2018 Jeep Renegade is a subcompact crossover with greater off-road abilities than any other vehicle in the class. It's sold in four trims: base Sport, the better-equipped Latitude, the trail-conquering Trailhawk and the luxurious Limited. Front-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is optional on all trims except the Trailhawk, which is the only model outfitted with 4WD with a low-range setting.
The Latitude comes standard with those three packages, plus foglights, automatic headlights, body-colored door handles and mirrors, ambient LED lighting, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an additional USB port. The Altitude package adds black exterior styling elements, 18-inch wheels, upgraded cloth upholstery and vinyl door trim.
Optional for both models is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder (180 hp, 175 lb-ft) paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The 2.4-liter engine comes standard on the Limited. The Limited also adds dual exhaust tips, automatic wipers, a windshield wiper de-icer, silver roof rails, keyless ignition and entry (with remote engine start), vinyl door trim, an upgraded driver information display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote engine start, a 115-volt household-style power outlet, leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat (with four-way power lumbar), heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat with a center pass-through.
The off-road-themed Trailhawk builds off the Latitude's feature set, with the 2.4-liter engine, 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, four-wheel drive with low-range settings, hill descent control, a raised suspension, tow hooks, underbody skid plates, a full-size spare, unique exterior and interior accents, all-season floor mats and upgraded cloth upholstery. It also includes some of the Limited's upgrades, including automatic wipers, vinyl door trim, an upgraded driver information display, the 115-volt outlet and a leather-wrapped shift knob.
