The Renegade is actually a great vehicle, tons of room for its size, not bad economy. I prefer it over the Compass hands down.

I like the Renegade. I object to the 500X trying to imitate a Jeep.The Fiat should have been styled and trimmed towards sportier on road performance, like what was done for the EU market.. I waited for the hybrid Renegade and Compass models and they didn't show up.

Sure they are just trying to determine the PSA Platform mates and manufacturing locations.
