2015 Jeep Renegade

jeep renegade 2015 new newjeep geneva2014 smalljeep
It is hard to judge a design from just one picture.
But since I do it all the time, here we go.

This look alike a joke. Almost an insult to Jeep fans.

We know it is based on the 500L platform, and it shows. It has the same terrible proportions.
The black trim all over looks horrible.

I just don't know what to say. The whole think looks like it was put together by a 12 year old kid.
Some Russian looking car from the 50's. A bad Chinese copy etc...

Lets wait for more pictures, and more colors. (this 60's blue green is cool for a Fiat 500, not for a Jeep)

That face looks like a 1980 Samurai

I think this is better than the compass and the patriot though.

Vince, there are a few other pics online where it looks less stupid. Looks like it has good visibility, a nice double sunroof, and some interesting design.

I kinda like it. its quirky and has that cool retro stuff that nissan did with the figaro and pao back in the 90s

I don't think it looks less stupid. It look much less like a Jeep. it could be anything from 30 years ago.

This is quite horrible.

How is this goofy thing supposed to lumber down the highway at 75mph? I love good retro design. But this Chinese looking thing is the devolution of the automobile. And of Jeep.

The phrase "nasty little shitbox" comes to mind...

We have definitely reached a point where designing for the US market has become a secondary priority for the automakers - as this "Jeep" shows. This is horrible, I hate everything about it. Unfortunately, from comments I have read on multiple sites, I am in the minority..

Why do all these subcompact vehicles need to be forcefully quirky? Juke, Encore, Cube, Soul, etc..

And this cribbing "real" Jeep design cues just makes the new Cherokee look more like the Alfa it was supposed to be

I will say this: this is bound to be better than the Patriot and Compass.
