In April of 2015 the Jeep Renegade officially arrived to the Brazilian public reinventing the segment. Now, after three and a half years, he enters the 2019 line willing to show why he is more Jeep than ever. Equipped with even more connectivity, technology, capacity and equipment, and design news, it continues to be a benchmark for compact SUVs and inspires a legion of fans. The first product of the world’s most modern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) factory in Pernambuco, the model ushered in a new era of Jeep in Brazil, ranking it ninth in sales. Alone, the Renegade already accumulates 160 thousand plates only in the domestic market. And more than that, out of every five SUVs sold in the country today, one is Jeep – the exact number is 22% participation, absolute leadership in the category. So much success has only increased the Jeep’s challenge to further open this brilliant chapter in the history of the vehicle and the brand in Brazil. Starting with the iconic design of the New Renegade, cut to enhance the authenticity typical of every Jeep.

The new front displays the grid with a redesign in the traditional seven slits, slightly lower. In the Limited and Trailhawk versions, the headlamps are now LEDs, both main and fog lamps, as well as daytime running lights (DRL). No wonder, Renegade’s ‘face’ is even more in line with that of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler, the brand’s top icon. This lighting set, with a range of more than 50% higher than the current standard (halogen lamps), is also available as an option in the Longitude options. In the Flex versions, another novelty is the front bumper, which gives the model one of the widest angles of attack category, up to 28 ° (the numbers are even better in the Diesel options, reaching 30 °). What increases the capacity to face any adversities that come ahead. Always light alloy, the wheels have won new designs on all Renegade, highlighting the Limited, which are 19 inches, measure unique in the segment. By the way, in this configuration, the wheels have two unprecedented color options, according to body paint. When the Renegade Limited is Antique Gray, the contours of the front grille openings and wheels are graphite. If the vehicle is in the Deep Brown color (only available in this version), such details boast bronze finish with graphite grille. In other shades of Renegade Limited, the grille, wheels and other points are in satin silver. There are two new paintings: Jazz Blue and Billet Silver, this one exclusive for the Longitude.

More connectivity

From the Longitude versions, the New Renegade 2019 now boasts the largest multimedia screen in the category, 8.4 inches. It is part of the same Uconnect system applied to the ‘big brother’ Jeep Compass, another unparalleled success in the segment. In this way, it is possible to pair the smartphone through the interfaces Android Auto and Apple Car Play, to access through the vehicle monitor navigation applications such as Google Maps and Waze and music, such as Spotify and Deezer, just to name a few. Uconnect 8.4 also lets you access the air-conditioning functions remotely, by touching the monitor or by voice commands. By the way, the cabin cooling time, in any version, was 20% faster, thanks to improvements in the system But already in the Sport 1.8 Flex, with manual or automatic transmission, Renegade has the standard Uconnect 5.0 touch screen and built-in rear camera. The second USB port, which was inside the central storage compartment, now faces the rear passengers, ‘democratizing’ the use.

Comfort and practicality

Behind, the back cover has gained an external knob, which makes the opening easier and more ergonomic. By doing so, you can see that now the trunk of all versions now holds 320 liters. There are 47 extra liters, obtained with the adoption of the temporary step – which Flex options had already received earlier this year. The exception is the Trailhawk, which kept the full size spare tire because of its greater vocation for the off road. In the cabin, the most original and well-finished of the segment, the central area received special care and has been redesigned. The air-conditioning controls are new, as are the more numerous and spacious object carriers. Both the front of the gear lever and the position between the seats, where a new niche has been opened, to accommodate items such as a cell phone. On the diesel versions, the Selec-Terrain’s knob rose slightly to generate more amplitude in the surrounding area.


The high level of the equipment list, since always a highlight of Renegade in all versions, has evolved even more. It is important to note that every New Jeep Renegade 2019 is equipped with stability and stability controls (ESC) and four-wheel independent suspension, electronic parking brake, multifunctional instrument panel display and alloy wheels, among other highlights.

The Jeep Renegade is among the news that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has prepared for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, as the brand’s compact SUV has just debuted the upcoming hybrid plug-in version, the new Jeep Renegade Plug-in Hybrid. Hybridization is the tool the Jeep has used to reduce Renegade’s pollution levels, and this new hybrid version debuts an electrified technology based on a 1.3 FireFly turbo engine. It is a four-cylinder engine that is located on the front axle, which works in combination with an electric motor mounted on the rear axle, achieving a four-wheel drive configuration. The set will offer a power of 190 hp and will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 7 seconds, with CO2 emissions below 50 g / km and a pure electric drive range of around 50 km thanks to the stored energy in its lithium-ion battery pack. In terms of aesthetics, the hybrid version of the Jeep B-SUV will not be very different from the rest of the line, as it has only a few subtle details that distinguish it from other versions. A specific decorative sticker on the hood, while the exterior mirrors are painted in gray and the back cover is the ‘4 × 4 e’ logo, which allows you to identify it as a hybrid model. In relation to the passenger compartment, a specific instrumentation has been introduced which includes information on the hybrid propulsion system and the level of the batteries, as well as data related to consumption, driving modality and eAWD traction.


A second interesting proposal from the Jeep for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The new Compass Hybrid presents itself at the big European event showing a particularly sporty image with the Trailkawk finish. Like the new Jeep Renegade Hybrid, the American brand’s intermediate bet comes in the red-painted body with special design details such as the satin gray trim of the seven-bar front grille and rearview mirror housings, accompanied by large 20-inch light alloy. A logo on the back with the ‘4×4 e’ emblem identifies this version more efficiently. Inside, the new Jeep Compass hybrid plug-in also features a specific instrument panel with two analog hemispheres on the sides of the instrumentation and a digital display between both with green graphics showing the information of the propulsion system in relation to the autonomy, power , consumption, and battery charge status. The new Jeep Compass Hybrid uses the same technical scheme as Renegade with the powerful 1.3-liter T4 turbocharged engine from the new FireFly family and an electric motor placed on the rear axle that adds up to a maximum power output of 240 hp.  With an 8-speed automatic transmission, the new plug-in hybrid features integral eAWD traction without connection between the two engines, so by switching to that mode, combustion and electric work together by managing the power and torque distribution of a way, including increased traction on the rear wheels, with CO2 emissions of less than 50 g / km. The Jeep has not provided technical or performance data for the new Compass Hybrid, as it will be announced as it approaches the date of its debut in the market, with commercialization commencing by the end of the current year. In pure electric mode it will offer a range of 50 kilometers and a top speed of 130 km / h.


The next special series of the best-selling SUV in Brazil puts it as an example of sophistication. The starting point was the Limited Diesel 4×4 version with an exclusive Deep Brown paint combined with various dark items (wheels, logos, friezes etc.) that would normally be chrome. The Jeep Compass S will also feature an autonomous driving technology package consisting of adaptive speed control (ACC), front-end collision warning with automatic braking (FCW +) and Lane Sense tracking. In addition to Park Assist, which already teams all Compass Limited and Trailhawk in the line 2019.


Top of the line Jeep, the big SUV goes on sale in the dealers of the brand in the national territory, single version, Limited, with two V6 engines: the Pentastar3.6 liter petrol and 3.0 turbo diesel. The transmission is always automatic eight-speed with Quadra-Trac II all-wheel drive. In the long list of devices, seven air bags, panoramic sunroof, electric front seats with heating and ventilation, and the entertainment suite, consisting of the Uconnect control panel with 8.4-inch display panel, two 9.0-inch rear screens with HDMI inputs and premium wireless and sound headphones with nine speakers and a subwoofer.

Tips For Choosing The Right Car Cover For Your Automobile

Protecting your vehicle from the elements of the weather, dust, and debris is a necessity if you must preserve its look and performance. The outside of an automobile should be protected just as much as the inside. The following are a number of factors to consider when you want to choose the right cover for your car. Determine whether it will be for indoor or outdoor use. Cars that are stored indoors need protection against dirt and dust as well as dents and dings. A car cover that is made of heavy flannel is ideal for inside storage because it is generally heavier than other materials. Another option is to purchase inexpensive designs that are made of cotton and polyester.

Trim down the options that you have by deciding whether to go for a woven or non-woven cover. The woven types are generally thinner and can be easily cleaned in the home washer. They can also be stored in the trunk because they are less bulky. They have very good airflow which prevents moisture from accumulating at the bottom. The non-woven types are usually multi-layered and are thicker and stronger than woven fabrics. These types are also suitable for sun and water protection. However, they need more storage space because of their bulky nature. Furthermore, they can only be cleaned in large commercial washers. You may also choose a custom-made car cover to protect your car from daily damage. This is a good option if you have a vehicle that has an irregular body type. For example, a car with lots of external accessories will have an altered dimension which can only be appropriately addressed by ordering a cover that is tailored to meet your exact needs. Do not forget to provide the make, year, model and sub-model of your automobile when ordering one. Price is another factor to consider. However, do not simply go for the cheapest products on the market as they are likely to offer the least amount of protection. Another way to identify quality car covers is to check the number of seams. The best designs have a lower number of seams and they are also double-stitched.

After purchasing a vehicle, you want to make sure it retains a good appearance and potential resale value. Getting a car cover is the most cost-efficient way to protect your car’s value. It will prevent your car from getting damaged by environmental elements and serves as a deterrent for thieves.

When you drive and park the automobile every day, it increases the chances that outdoor factors will ruin the appearance. During the summer, the intense heat and sunlight can ruin the automobile’s paint job. The paint will start to fade more quickly. The sun will also cause the interior of the automobile to overheat. The heat can damage the materials inside the automobile. A car cover will prevent the automobile from getting direct sun exposure and keep the interior of the vehicle from deteriorating. To avoid the sun, some people choose to park their automobile under a tree. Unfortunately, trees can also be the source of damage to the car. When sap falls from the tree, it can inflict permanent damage on your paint job. Bird droppings, pine corns, acorns, and branches also fall from the tree. All of those things can either ruin the appearance of the vehicle or put dents on the exterior.

Weather during the fall and winter can pose additional hazards to your vehicle. Moisture from the rain can seep into any existing cracks in the exterior. The paint starts to push apart from the metal and blemishes become exposed. Moisture from the ice and snow during the winter produces similar damage. Corrosion starts to develop and the metal in the car deteriorates. Protecting the vehicle from theft is a priority. Car alarms, steering wheel locks, and kill switches are a few of the devices used to keep vehicles from being stolen. A car cover serves as another security measure. Thieves are less likely to target a vehicle that is covered. Thieves want to be able to quickly get inside a car and drive off. When a covering has to be removed, the thief’s activity is more conspicuous. Some covers also come with a lock kit to keep the covering attached to the vehicle. Car covers are a valuable accessory to own. Your vehicle will be able to maintain its appearance for a longer period of time. You will also save time and money by reducing how often the vehicle needs to be washed and repaired. Ready-fit and customized coverings are available.

You may have looked at your car recently and wondered where on earth you’d taken it that has made it look so weather-beaten. The truth is, there is no reason for you to tour the world for your car to look like this. It happens from being parked outside your house uncovered. Yes, Uncovered. When a vehicle of any kind is left parked outdoors, it gets attacked by nature itself. If it isn’t the dust, tree sap, and bird droppings that all find refuge over the exterior, staining and ruining it, then it’s the weather. Most weather conditions are not healthy for your parked vehicle. The sun’s glare, together with ultraviolet rays, damage both the exterior and interior of the car. The paintwork and finish of the car will be bleached before long, giving the car a very washed out look. The driving cabin will get overheated, making it unbelievably stuffy for you to drive. Aside from all that, the internal system of the car gets damage when left in the heat.

Rain has high levels of acidity which causes it to eat away at the paintwork. This gives the vehicle a patchy, ugly look. This is in addition to the many watermarks left all over the exterior. Snow has the same effect, only worse as it causes the vehicle to freeze over, tampering with the brakes whilst doing so. As the wind blows about, it manages to drag along with it all sorts of rubble from the street. This includes sticks and stones, which, when they fly past the car, end up knocking it and scratching and or denting it. These little nicks and dings can happen even in the calmest of weather conditions. If someone brushes past the car and his keys are dangling from his belt, he or she knock and scratch the car too.

So you see that there are all sorts of day to day circumstances that will end up wrecking your car before you know it. Whereas if you would cover your car, you will provide it, and yourself, with all the protection it needs. There are various types of covers available, so no matter where you live, you will find the cover that will suit your climate best. You will find that in the long run, you save yourself a lot of money as your car will not need updating so quickly. You will also save on all the cleaning and polishing accessories you would’ve needed to keep it in a respectable condition. Covers aren’t so expensive anymore, and there are plenty of great deals to be found online. Don’t forget, having a car cover is a safety feature too. Unfortunately, there are too many shady individuals that go snooping around in cars at night. Having a cover on your car will stop these nasty individuals from using your car as their target. There are several different car covers available. We believe they are vital wherever you are storing your vehicle.

Outdoor – these should be waterproof and have straps to secure it to the car. The main concern with these is that they do not allow the car to ‘breathe’ and should be removed periodically to allow any trapped moisture to be dried. The other concern is that if outside, it is going to get blown around by the wind. The problem with this is that it could potentially chafe and rub on the bodywork, damaging it.

Indoor – Within this category there are several variants and options. The main one to consider is that it must be breathable. This allows any moisture to be drawn away from the car and not let it sweat. No cover is better than one which does not breathe. Decorators dust cover/cotton sheet – Tend to be of an open weave allowing dust through and onto the car beneath. Due to being cotton these can also become damp, which isn’t good for the car beneath. Semi-fitted indoor breathable, single layer – This type of cover look fairly good on the car, offer a very good level of dust protection and allow the car to breathe.

Semi-fitted indoor breathable, double layer – Same as the above but with a top breathable layer to stop dust but allows moisture through from the car. It also has a lower soft or ‘fluffy’ layer which is kind to the paintwork. Windrush Car Storage recommends this as the most suitable type of car cover for all-around performance. Fully fitted – These look sensational on the car, as they follow all the curves and contours. They tend to be expensive as they’re tailored to each car shape. These tend not to be good at keeping dust off the bodywork, as the fabric is stretched to follow the contours and the weave of the material allows dust particles through. The car covers you want are made to keep the wet weather and everything else that spring can throw at it from hurting your finish. One thing to look for in your choice of car cover for spring is how well it will hold up to the storms and wind. The three and four layer covers will keep your vehicle dry and also stay on your car better because of added layer weight. Of course, all covers come with some type of elastic and tie downs to help the cover to stay put but the heavier three and four layer covers tend to stay better because of there density, the elastic and the tie downs.

Now just some information on what a three-layer cover is and how it will help protect your vehicle. The three-layer cover is made to be waterproof and will wick away condensation that may accumulate under the cover in certain types of conditions. This cover will also protect your car from daily damage from UV rays, it is treated at the factory for UV rays and also treated to be waterproof. This cover can be used inside or outdoors. The thickness of this cover really helps protect your finish from bumps and scratches, as well as bird droppings, dirt, dust, acid rain and more. The four-layer cover has all the benefits of the three-layer cover and also offers the fourth layer of fleece to help protect your clear coat finish from rubbing and motion that wind may cause. This cover is the top of the line cover from Elite. It is available for cars, Trucks, SUV’s, Station Wagons and Motorcycles. If you need a cover that is waterproof and also offers protection from the sun and you want that extra protection to your finish this is the one.
