2015 Jeep Renegade

You’re not going to loan them the Ferrari, so what can you buy for your kids that’s inexpensive to buy and THEY will enjoy driving?

Not what I normally write about, Jeep invited a group of automotive journalists to a preview of their new product, the 2015 Jeep Renegade, and I almost passed. I’m glad I went. Your kids (and you) are going to think this is a very nifty little machine.

 

B-segment cars (as they are know in Europe), are small SUV’s and the fastest growing slice of the market, and the new 2015 Jeep Renegade combines utility, convenience, high-tech high-touch, into one snazzy package.

Totally redesigned, but throw a sheet over it and you still know it’s a Jeep. I crawled all over it, I came away impressed with how well thought out it felt. Excellent fit and finish, it’s nice to see an old line manufacturer now so in tune with present-day needs.
