Jeep Renegade compact SUV spied testing in India again


Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Not expected to launch in India.

The Jeep Renegade has again been spotted testing in India though Jeep India is not expected to launch the Renegade in the country; rather a new compact SUV codenamed Jeep 551.

The Renegade’s platform is reported to spawn the Jeep 551 SUV.

The Renegade was likely imported for testing the Small Wide platform in India, which will underpin the Jeep 551 SUV that will be manufactured and sold in India. Two variants were imported for testing: 6-speed manual and 9-speed automatic versions of the Renegade diesel model that packs a 2.0L Multijet engine.

As for the Jeep 551, it will replace the Compass and Patriot SUVs in several markets. The SUV will make its world debut in Brazil in late-September, followed by a U.S. debut at the 2016 LA Auto Show in November. Unlike the Renegade, the Jeep C-SUV will feature a more contemporary styling similar to the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee.
