After four long years, it seems that the 2019 Jeep Renegade is all set to get a brand new look; it certainly seems like that this model debuted only last year but in reality, it debuted four years back and is just in time for a brand new makeover. That got us plenty excited, which is why we started scavenging for any information that we could find on the new model, including leaked images and interviews. Finally, we collated enough material to prep this review and it’s about time that we took a closer look at the same.
The 2019 Jeep Renegade comes with a brand new look and one that certainly seems to have already generated a lot of buzz around this model. We did pay close attention to the images and we can confirm that the Renegade does get a new look and it certainly made a good impression on all of us. The new model gets a complete makeover, both on the outside and on the inside. We do believe that most of these updates will be comfort centric. We do think that the styling changes will be subtle and that the overall design should be similar to the previous generation but with more than just a few welcome changes to boot.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Jeep Renegade comes with a bolder, front fascia with enhanced grille with sharper and slimmer slats. The headlights have been restyled and come with a rectangular housing with LED ring; it also comes with daytime LED running lights as well as fog lights on some of the trims. Both the fog lights and the LED daytime running lights are placed closer to the bottom half of the grille. The rougher edges have been slimmed down and now it sports on a sleek look, one that manages to exude beauty and confidence.
The side panels are better contoured with the roof line slanting gently towards the back. The rear end gets the same treatment as the front end with a brand new fascia as well as unique X stamped LED tail lights which complete the look. The new model comes with a slightly larger wheelbase which means more space on the interior with a slightly larger space for cargo. It also comes with 19-inch wheels, with metal alloy but other trim levels may carry 18-inch wheels. The overall changes to the exterior are definitely pleasing to the eye and with better colors this time around, it is easy to see why this vehicle stands out for all the right reasons.
The 2019 Jeep Renegade comes with a revamped interior; it comes with plush leather seats, heated and cooled driver seat, power seating, multi-position adjustable driver’s seat, and a reconfigured dashboard that curves beautifully. The dash is tastefully done with the instrument cluster within easy reach as well as the 8.4 inches U connect entertainment panel.
It also comes with climate control, as well as several advanced safety features such as lane sense departure assist, intelligence speed assist, traffic sign recognition and much more.
