Here's the first official shot of Jeep's entry in the small SUV and crossover segments, the 2015 Renegade, which surfaced online just ahead of its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday.

The single picture of the new Renegade was published on Jalopnik, which says this is likely the trail-rated version of the car adding that it may come with a removable roof.

We know from our report that the Renegade, previously thought to be called "Jeepster" or "Laredo", is a sister model to the upcoming Fiat 500x crossover, with both cars sharing the Fiat-Chrysler group Small Wide platform architecture utilized on the 500L minivan.

They'll also have common powertrains, which could include Fiat's 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline unit, 1.3-liter turbo diesel and possibly even the 0.9-liter TwinAir turbocharged gasoline engine.

By John Halas

Update: A photo showing the Renegade's twin sky roof system, as well as pictures of the SUV's profile and rear end have been added to the gallery.
Update 2: We also have the first photo of the interior, courtesy of the Jeeprenegadeforums

Default 2015 Jeep Renegade leaks out ahead of Geneva debut

Meet the Renegade – Jeep's new baby crossover that's set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week. The folks at Jalopnik got their hands on a small batch of photos of the new little cutie, showing what appears to be a Trailhawk (read: trail-rated) version, as well as a more civilian-spec Renegade, complete with a new removable roof system, reportedly called My Sky.

Details are slim, though in addition to the exterior images, one photo of the interior has also been leaked, showing what appears to be a small, yet functional (and nicely appointed) cabin. Early reports suggested that the new small Jeep would be based on the Fiat 500L platform, though Jalopnik rightly points out that the Renegade looks an awful lot like the Panda 4x4. Regardless, there's still likely some 500L bones under there, and we'll know more once the official details are revealed in the very near future.

Head over to Jalopnik for more shots of the cute little Renegade, and stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Well, it surely looks better than the Fiat 500L...

Red one does look better, but I am certainly not the target market for this one

This is mini-ute is the cutest thing ever. That being said, I'm very curious to see what the male/female split will be.

"Round headlights" approach religious status for dedicated Jeepers. You mess with them at your peril. The Cherokee appeals to a different demo.

not like Soul is original anyway, it is a copy of xB, which had long heritage in hundred other japanese boxy small vehicles.


I like it, it is based on Fiat 500L and IMHO it looks better. I saw 500L in car show last year and was disappointed that brand new show caw had wear and tear on colored armrest (textile).

This should sell good.
