Jeep went really compact by launching the Renegade a few years ago. It became one of the brand’s best-sellers in no time and has been popular since. In fact, last month – May 2018 – it sold more units than any other Fiat Chrysler model. And now it’s time for an update, a facelift as it were. Best of all, the little 4×4 comes with new engines too and will be seen on Mzansi roads in early 2019.

Following its reveal at the Torino Motor Show yesterday, Jeep is excited about the new Renegade. We reckon they have something to be excited about. Not only did we enjoy the handling of the vehicle a few years ago, we were also impressed with its relatively frugal consumption in the manual version. Speaking of which, we see Jeep has introduced two new engines in the form of a 1.0-litre turbo making a healthy 90kW of power, as well as a 1.3-litre turbo giving out 112kW. The same 1.3 can also be had in a 134kW version. For now we don’t know which of these two will be sold in Mzansi next year.
