Jeep took the Avenger nameplate from Dodge, but instead of using it on a coupe, it placed it on a sub-compact crossover vehicle. It marked a new era for the American carmaker, which had to make the switch to electric power and lower its average brand emission values.
The Avenger is a new product based on an existing platform. Its shape still resembles the Renegade, but with a much sleeker profile. At the front, the vehicle boasts the same seven-slat grille common for all Jeeps, albeit this one is narrower. Furthermore, the electric-only version didn't even feature a venting area to cool the engine since there was none. The lower bumper, on the other hand, still sported a broad air intake needed to cool the battery pack and the car's electronic system. From its profile, the Avenger features a slightly ascending beltline towards the C-pillar, which creates a floating roof appearance. At the back, the LED taillights were mounted on the quarter panels, narrowing the tailgate.
Inside, the carmaker stepped into the XXI-st century with an updated digital infotainment system and a TFT display instead of the classic, analog instrument panel. Just like its Renegade sibling, it offered slightly side-bolstered seats that provided some side support. The narrow and twisty European roads demand such an approach.
Under the hood, Jeep installed either a plug-in hybrid version or an all-electric drivetrain. While the former was already known for its Renegade sibling, the latter was new and provided up to 400 km (248 miles) range.
