Four years from the debut, for the small SUV Jeep Renegade is the moment of a slight update, which concerns more than anything else the new infotainment system with tactile screens (always visible in the console), effective and easy to use. The one planned for the Sport set up has a small monitor of 5 “, the Bluetooth, a USB socket and the Live services: using the Bluetooth connection with your mobile phone you can see in the screen various applications, such as those of some Social network, the latest news from the Reuters Press agency, or listen to Web radio and choose music from the Deezer platform. The Longitude adds a second USB connection behind the armrest between the seats (useful for those travelling on the sofa). The rich Limited and Trailhawk offer, always standard, the screen of 7 “, the features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and the ability to customize the monitor by arranging the icons of the various services at will (as you do with the screen of smartphones). The Business also has the navigator and the largest monitor, of 8.4 “(in the photos), which for other productions are optional (to 1,300 euros). In addition, this facility also features the Jeep skills app for the off-road: It provides various additional information, such as large tilting of the car on the terrain you are facing or the pressure value that is being exerted on the brake pedal. As for the bodywork, the 2019 Jeep Renegade keeps the unmistakable square look, but the tailgate has a new and more practical handle to open it.

2019 Jeep Renegade Interior
The cabin of the 2019 Jeep Renegade is confirmed as spacious, made with good care and with a comfortable driving position raised. The novelties are concentrated in the console, where the three “knobs” of the air conditioner (similar to those of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta) have given way to more conventional keys and knobs, intuitive to use (they are the same as the Jeep Compass). Other changes concern the glove box in front of the gear lever, now better shaped and wider, and the two cans between the seats: they leave room for a new compartment to store thin objects (like a smartphone). Moreover, on the right side of the console is obtained a useful mantle, for example, to hold a tablet. The pockets in the doors, however, remain small. The squared opening of the tailgate and the threshold not too far from the ground (74 cm) facilitate the loading operations, but the 351 litres (with five seats in use) of capacity for the trunk are not recordable.
2019 Jeep Renegade Test Drive; Performance & Gas Mileage
Well-supported by the efficient dual clutch robotic gearbox, the 120 horsepower of the 1.6 diesel engines move the 2019 Jeep Renegade with readiness and panache (to the “0-100” in 10.2 seconds and the 178 of maximum speed), without consuming too much: in the test, on suburban roads, The on-board computer calculated 14.6 km/L (far from 22.2 km/l “officers”). Too bad that, although not very annoying, the voice of the engine is always present, like the aerodynamic rustles generated by the massive rear-view mirrors. The steering, not too light, has a good precision and, together with the solid suspension, promotes the inserts in the curves. For an SUV, the agility is not bad and you can enter the six reports even manually, moving back and forth the lever in the tunnel. Despite the little yielding calibration of the shock absorbers, the passenger’s back is not tested: Only the most marked disconnections are filtered with difficulty.
