The Jeep Avenger has been named the Best Small Car in the Autocar Awards 2023, beating out competitors from other brands. The award recognizes the Jeep Avenger's ability to combine a Jeep's ruggedness with a small car's practicality, offering a unique driving experience for urban and off-road adventures.
The Jeep Avenger is based on the Fiat 500 platform but has been modified to suit the Jeep DNA. It features a distinctive design, with a seven-slot grille, round headlights, trapezoidal wheel arches, and a tailgate-mounted spare wheel. The interior is spacious and comfortable, with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a range of safety and convenience features.
The Jeep Avenger is powered by a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that delivers 120 horsepower and 190 Nm of torque. It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a nine-speed automatic transmission, depending on the trim level. The Jeep Avenger also offers a 4x4 system with four driving modes: Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud. The system can automatically adjust the torque distribution between the front and rear wheels, depending on the road conditions and driver's preferences.
The Jeep Avenger is fun to drive and efficient and eco-friendly. It has a fuel consumption of 5.1 liters per 100 km and CO2 emissions of 117 g/km in the combined cycle. It also has a mild hybrid system that uses a belt-driven starter generator to recover energy during braking and coasting and provide extra power during acceleration. The system helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 10%.
