The all-new car is expected to be launched in the Indian markets in the coming time, however, there is no official word on the launch. Jeep has started testing the Renegade on the Indian roads and the car was caught near Udipi in Karnataka.

This is the Jeep Renegade that is expected to be launched in the Indian market. The all-new car will take on the likes of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos in the Indian market. Under a heavy camouflage, the Renegade was spotted on the roads. This is the current version of the Renegade that has been on sale in the markets around the world since 2015. Jeep will officially launch the all-new Renegade that will be unveiled in 2021. It is not known if Jeep will bring the current version of the car to the Indian market or the all-new version.

This Jeep Renegade spotted testing in India by a member of 4X4 India. It is the pre-facelifted version, which can be identified by the design of its bumper. Jeep officially launched the facelifted version of the Renegade in 2018 in the American market. In its current version, the Renegade gets LED headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, foglamps integrated to the bumper and a skid plate at the front. The Renegade also offers a touchscreen infotainment system with a climate control system that is inspired by the Grand Cherokee.

While the current version of the Renegade is littler longer than 4 metres, Jeep may bring in a tweaked version that will be sub-4m and will allow the manufacturer to price the car competitively. The car gets 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol and a 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine option.

Currently, Jeep’s most affordable and only made-in-India car is the Compass. It takes on the likes of Hyundai Tucson and higher-end variants of the Mahindra XUV500. Jeep is also working to launch the facelifted version of the Compass to the Indian market in the coming times. The Compass facelift was officially revealed in the international markets and it gets powered by a 1.3-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and a 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine options.
