Probably is, and 2wd to boot I would guess.WoW.... Mileage like that almost sounds like one of the diesel engines with the stop-start technology.
Must be! Wow, that's still a nice number...manual 2wd diesel with stop start, poverty pack special I expect, frugal no doubt...
and one you better quickly forget about, were never getting anywhere near that.Must be! Wow, that's still a nice number...
so 42mpg highway? still sounds like diesel.and one you better quickly forget about, were never getting anywhere near that.
Also keep in mind that euro MPG calcs are different. 1 US gallon = .83 Imperial gallons.
The Renegade should, in my opinion, achieve at least 35 mpg in the 4X4. It can't tow, has very little cargo capacity, and is not roomy. Fuel mileage and affordability should be it's strength, otherwise, the Renegade isn't going to be highly valuable outside from those who are looking for a good capable commuter vehicle. Don't get me wrong, I would like to have a Renegade, but I need to see good mileage, otherwise, I'll buy something a little more practical. This is why the diesel option in the Renegade would be perfect.
It'll be able to tow something. What do you need to tow?
The cargo capacity is fungible depending on passengers. But given the fold down front passenger seat, I expect it'll be pretty flexible for the occasional cargo needs. As for roomy, it's numbers are in line with the kia soul for passengers. I'm 6'7", My wife owns a 2011 soul. It's pretty comfy for tall people, and you can sit a reasonably sized adult in the back seat behind me, or me in the back seat behind a reasonably sized adult.
If you want to play commercial hauling vehicle with it, no it probably isn't the right vehicle.
It's not going to be a sofa on wheels. I would also suggest that historically jeep interior ergonomics was the equivalent of the jerk who parks in the middle of four parking spaces because they are special. One of my friends shopped the liberty, and found they had succeeded in making a car that was equally uncomfortable and a poor fit for his 6'2" self and his wife's 5' nothing frame.I wouldn't call my Jeep Liberty or Jeep Cherokee roomy, or comfortable for longer trips. I suppose "roomy" is a broad term and used more as an opinion than fact. When I think of "roomy", I think of a full sized pickup truck or larger SUV.
How i see it, depending on how Jeep promotes it, we could see a lot of city folk picking these up. Their initial marketing should help with showing if that might be the case.
As for my perspective, I'm 6'7" roomy means it fits and I can adjust the seat some and putting me in the car doesn't automatically reduce it to a 3 seater, and I can clear the roof while sitll being able to rest my wrists on the steering wheel.
It might. But the numbers look a lot like the soul, and the soul fits, it even has a decent amount of headroom to spare. From looking at pictures and video, the big difference between the two might be if me sitting in it turns it from 4 seater to a 3 seater. If it is a no go, it's not the end of the world, I'll look at something else.My guess is that the Renegade might be too small for you.

Heck, I drove a 97 eclipse GSX for 8 years, I don't mind if a car fits like a glove as long as it is a reasonably comfy glove. My L4 and L5 discs have redefined what comfy is, but as long as it permits fairly upright seating without my legs practically straight out form the hip, I'm mostly ok.
