India’s largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki launched the S-Presso hatchback in September 2019 and they call it a mini SUV because of the boxy design and the SUV inspired front. With S-Presso, Maruti is targeting at a young set of buyers who aspire to buy an SUV but have the budget of a small car. In such a short span of time, Maruti has already sold over 10,000 units of S-Presso across the coutry. As of now it competes with Renault Kwid in its segment but, what if Jeep decides to come up with a mini SUV that will compete with Maruti’s S-Presso. How would it look like? That is what exactly Kleber Silva a render artist, shows us through one of his latest creation.
The car in the image is a micro SUV which is based on Jeep’s Renegade Compact SUV. The front gets the iconic Jeep seven slat grille with Jeep badging right above it. The round headlamps with LED DRLs in them are similar to the one found in Renegade SUV. Just like other Jeep vehicles, This micro SUV will also get a aggressive bumper with turn indicators and fog lamps integrated in them. Just like the front grille, artist gives this micro SUV a wide air dam at the front.
Coming to the side profile, artist has given a set of turn indicators on the front fender and ORVMs. The whole car gets a dual tone paint job to give it more of an SUVish stance. The ORVMs are painted black and the whole car gets a boxy design like Renegade or the Maruti S-Presso. The cladding on the wheel arches and the doors give it a rugged feel.
Rear of this S-Presso rival SUV in artist’s imagination looks plain and simple with just a spoiler at the top. Apart from that there is just a Jeep badging and a rear windscreen wiper. The tail lights are again something that gets inspiration from Renegade. The ‘X’ shape inside the tail light is something we have seen in Renegade SUV. The bumper however looks like one from the S-Presso with parking sensors on it.
Jeep has not officially said anything about launching a micro or mini SUV that will compete with S-Presso. This is purely out of artist’s imagination. Renegade however has been an SUV that Jeep is testing and might launch in India in the coming times. It will compete with SUVs like Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster in its segment if launched.
