2019 Jeep Renegade facelift has been teased for the European market. The updated model of the SUV will make its global debut tomorrow (June 6, 2018) at the Turin Motor Show in Italy. The new Renegade has also been confirmed for the Indian market. In India, the new Jeep SUV will be stacked up against the newly-launched Hyundai Creta facelift and Renault Captur/Duster. It will sit below the highly-popular Jeep Compass in the company product lineup and is estimated to be priced around 10 lakh for the base model.
The teaser shows the newly-designed X-shaped taillamp with more detailed Red LED light instead of the White reflector. Jeep has also updated the outer casing of the taillight. The older matte black finish has been replaced by the high gloss black casing. Though, the signature seven slats grille in the tail lamp remains unchanged.
