The sub-£20k starting price will buy you a basic Sport model with the new 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, producing 120bhp and 190Nm of torque.

Above this are three other trim levels – Longitude starting at £21,700, Limited from £24,400 and Trailhawk beginning at £30,805.

In terms of other powertrains, there’s a new 1.3-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit producing 150bhp or 180bhp and 270Nm of torque. In addition, you can opt for a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre Multijet II diesel unit, offering 120bhp and 140bhp respectively.

Finally, the top-spec Trailhawk model is fitted with a 2.0-litre version of the Multijet II diesel engine, producing a potent 170bhp.

The new Renegade features a variety of upgrades from the previous model, including updated front styling, new powertrains with improved fuel economy, a refreshed interior, new LED headlights as standard on higher-spec models, new wheel designs and improved safety features.

The car is available with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive, with the latter designed to adapt to various road conditions, including snow, sand and mud.
