News > Jeep Renegade is SUV Crossover of the Year
After being introduced across Europe last year, the new Jeep Renegade can proudly say that it has been crowned as the “SUV Crossover Urbain de l'Année” – or to us – SUV Crossover of the Year. Specialist French magazine (published by Editions Larivière), SUV Crossover, together with their expert readers, came to this decision.
“After playing several years in the urban SUV segment, Jeep Renegade has been recently renewed both aesthetically and technically, to return to the forefront of its category once again. A return that was very much welcomed by our readers, still pleased by the styling and qualities of this Jeep SUV”, says Julien Renavand, Chief Editor of SUV Crossover magazine.
French customers have been pleased by the extensive range of engines and versions that come with the Renegade, and this has easily made it the best-selling Jeep model since its launch in 2014 in the French market.
The new and efficient turbo petrol engines – a three-cylinder, 1.0-litre producing 120 hp and a four-cylinder 1.3-litre delivering 150 hp or 180 hp – puts the Renegade in an irresistible offer when it comes to technology and new features.
A Jeep Renegade plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) that foresees the not-so-distant future of this SUV, was unveiled at the world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show recently, where new features were announced to enhance its capability and please the new mobility requirements, in turn aimed at showing respect for the environment.
