Jeep Renegade caught testing; interior spied


The Jeep Renegade has been spotted yet again. While, the exterior is still wrapped in camouflage, the new spy images reveal details of the car's interior.

The interior of the test mule features a black dashboard with silver inserts and dual-tone fabric upholstery for the seats. It is rumoured that leather seats could be offered as an option. The door pads have a black and beige theme and appear to sport silver door handles along with silver and gloss black inserts. The centre fascia consists of an infotainment display and climate control system. The car also gets a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel.

This test mule is equipped with a manual gearbox. That said, it does have an electronic parking brake, which is available in the Jeep Compass. According to media reports, the Renegade is likely to be offered with Fiat's MultiJet 1.6-litre diesel or the 2.0-litre diesel from the Compass in a lower state of tune. A four-wheel drive version of the car could also be on cards.

The Renegade sports a boxy styling. The front end gets Jeep's signature 7-slat grille flanked on either side by round headlights. The front bumper looks chunky and houses fog lamps and indicators.

The Renegade will be the fourth model in Jeep's India line-up. It will also be the brand's entry-level model and is expected to compete with the likes of Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster.
