The baby Jeep model, previously known as the Jeepster, has leaked ahead of its Geneva Motor Show debut.

The Fiat-based Jeep model will reportedly be called the Renegade and sports the same exterior styling as the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The photos show the Renegade off road meaning that it’ll be trail rated and it’ll possibly come with a removable roof.

    It's nice for the section of the market it is competing in. I think it will do well. This directed to your average buyer not the people that read this news. Most people here are enthusiasts and your average Jeep enthusiast is not going to like this. Probably why I don't like it either.
