Jeep plans a compact SUV based on Renegade / 500x platform for Europe (and possibly India?). More details awaited on 1st June when FCA announces it's 5 year plan

Quote:
The compact-sized Jeep would become the entry point into the Jeep range and be priced below the Renegade, suggesting a starting price of around £15,000.
Quote:
Details are expected to be revealed on 1 June in Jeepís next five-year plan, for 2018-2023, which will be one of the items in a major FCA business announcement.

Jeep confirms it's sub-4m SUV for India - to go up against the Maruti-Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the Ford EcoSport & the Tata Nexon.

Expected to go on sale in the Indian market by 2022, the all-new sub-4m Jeep offering will also be exported to other countries from here, while the platform underlining this mini SUV will support electrification and connected car tech as well.

Quote:
With Jeep announcing its intentions to enter the sub-4m SUV in India, we expect the carmaker to equip the upcoming SUV with engines that qualify for the tax breaks under the “small car” rule. To do that, Jeep will need a petrol engine under 1200cc and a diesel engine that displaces not more than 1500cc. Fiat already has a 1.3-litre diesel engine in its portfolio that powers the 500X. This engine conforms to EuroVI and BSVI emission norms as well.
However, don’t expect the sub-compact Jeep SUV to start from anywhere around the Rs 7 lakh to Rs 8 lakh mark since it will be launched in the BSVI era, when even the Brezza and EcoSport would be significantly more expensive than their current prices.
Jeep says that it will double its sales outlets in India in the time period.

But there has been no confirmation on the Renegade for India though? We keep hearing multiple reports on the Renegade. Initial reports said that the Renegade is due for launch sometime in 2019, also possibly waiting for market feedback on the Compass. Then we heard some news that the Renegade may not make it to India for now.

Now that FCA is seeing consistent demand for the Compass, should they not firm up their plans for the Renegade?

Or is the under 4M compact SUV the only car below the Compass for India?

I feel Jeep should launch the Renegade in India before the "Jeep" euphoria started by the Compass wears off. With 2022 timeframe for the next offering (if they skip the Renegade) in India, it'll be too little too late and Jeep will head the Fiat way. They should even refresh the Compass by 2020 if they want to stay relevant in the market.

As per today's ET paper, they are not going to launch Renegade in India.
This sub-4 meter SUV is likely to come in 2020-21, till then they will rely on CKD options and more variants of Compass to sustain the moment.

I personally was eyeing Renegade sometime in 2018-19.

It will be suicidal for Jeep to skip the Renegade and launch the sub 4M SUV. The sub 4M space is already crowded with the Brezza, Ecosport, Nexon, etc. The 10-20L segment is almost empty with the Creta is gathering all the sales. They should launch a Creta competitor, which is the Renegade.

Have there been any signs that Jeep is not Fiat? If Ford could starve the Indian market to export Ecosports, Jeep might do one better & not even try to sell more here.

In the timeframe we are talking, it is more likely that Kia will show how it can be done. Maybe even Peugeot? Hope this isn't that much off-topic.

Jeep's Vitara Brezza rival confirmed for 2020.

Jeep B-Segment Compact SUV: Here are more details-vbr.jpg

Quote:
Jeep officials have been vocal about any model with the Jeep badge being Ďtrue to DNAí so you can expect the model to have a certain degree of off-road ability, as well. While it is more than likely the model will be built on a front-wheel-drive platform, it isnít too speculative to think of an all-wheel-drive version in development as well.

With no test mules having been spotted in the open, the design and styling is not known for the moment, but rest assured, the design will not veer too much from Jeepís established look.

2020 will be late for this sub-4m SUV, if Hyundai decided to launch the Carlino based SUV in 2019 and that too looks like having a very good road presence. Nevertheless, if Jeep decided to launch it at least by 2020, they should get a piece of pie in the already crowed compact SUV segment which is growing every passing month.

Jeep Low-D SUV for India will share Compass platform.

Jeep B-Segment Compact SUV: Here are more details-00.jpg

Quote:
there will be a new three-row SUV for our market that will come sometime in late 2021. This unnamed SUV, currently known by its codename Low-D, will sit above the Compass and will be a proper rival to the Honda CR-V and the Skoda Kodiaq in our market.
Quote:
this new SUV is still some time away, and can confirm that it will sit on Jeep’s Small Wide 4x4 platform which is widely used across FCA range. The platform also underpins the Renegade, the Compass and Fiat’s Toro pickup sold in South America
Jeep will also bring in a new sub-four-metre compact SUV in India in 2022.

Default Jeep's Brezza rival is coming!

Just relying on one product is not part of Jeep India's plans. While the Compass has indeed established the brand and has made it popular amongst Indian buyers; it is still a premium product. Thus Jeep India needs a compact SUV with the good news being that it is indeed a part of its plans for India. No, it is not the Renegade but an altogether new product.

Jeep made headlines earlier this year when it confirmed development of a new sub-four-metre SUV in its five-year plan announcement. Kevin Flynn, managing director, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles India, has now stated that the model in question will be launched in India in 2020. Flynn spoke of the compact SUV in an interview with Business Standard

Jeep will expand its SUV line-up from various angles. So one SUV would be below the Compass and another would be a three-row 7-seater model that would be positioned between the Compass and Grand Cherokee.

Of most interest would be the compact SUV as the sales potential is huge here. This compact SUV would be under 4m but just like the Compass the Jeep DNA would be important and it would just not be another compact SUV with a Jeep badge.


Official sketches released

Jeep B-Segment Compact SUV: Here are more details-jeep0.jpg
With this in mind, It will have rugged styling (might be similar to the Renegade SUV seen here) like the Compass but also clearly it would have segment first off-road ability and we do expect 4x4 plus even the modes to distinguish it. While compact SUVs till date have focused on on-road driving, the upcoming compact SUV will have its true Jeep DNA making it also a rugged SUV that does decent off-roading.

This compact SUV will enter a crowded space with the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza and Mahindra XUV300. While we are still some time away from its launch, we do hope to see this soon and cannot wait to hear more about this SUV. Meanwhile what are your thoughts on this upcoming 'baby' Jeep? Tell us in the comments section below.


The launch timeline of the B-segment five-seater and D-segment seven-seater SUVs is yet uncertain but ahead of their arrival, Jeep will likely be expanding the range of the Compass. Just as the Compass, both the SUVs will be produced at the Ranjangaon plant and could be shipped to RHD markets, as the facility will see expansion of about 80,000 units, taking the total capacity to 2,40,000.

KIA is already testing Venue based compact SUV and here Jeep is releasing sketches. In the meantime reasonably established C-SUV players like Tata and Mahindra are planning to introduce the electric C-SUVs. Looks like Jeep is too late similar to Toyota Yaris.

PS : Do we really need a Brezza rival from Jeep. We already see so many Brezzas with Jeep grill

Those sketches are excellent, but check out those rear doors which look too small in the 1st drawing.

Jeep should also offer it as a 2 door (With accessible rear seats) and enhance the looks, desirability (will need 4x4) of this product & establishing its own USP.

If above is done then i see this could become a potential Suzuki Jimny rival (Globally)

Needs body on frame construction though.

But is Jeep India a risk taker ?

The news article looks like just another of usual baseless click-magnet type articles to generate hits & get advertisement money. Absolutely no credible details. And we have been waiting for the so called Jeep sub4m SC-SUV since so long, that nobody will be interested in it anymore even if it arrives. Jeep has lost the plot big time.

Also - looking at the time Jeep took to launch usable automatics & off road capable variants of the Compass (a real global product), talking of a 4x4 capable sub4m car is really preposterous. Whoever wrote that article on Yahoo has really optimistic outlook and vivid imagination with 0 connect to reality.
