The Jeep Avenger is 4080mm in length, 1780mm in width & 1530mm in height. It remains to be seen if Jeep chops this out for the sub-4m benefits or extends it to take on the Creta, Seltos etc. Talking about the design, the Avenger Jeep has successfully integrated its traditional design with modern elements. At the front, we have a new grille with smoked headlamps. Side profile looks like a smaller version of the Compass. The rear again has the smoked tail lamps.

If Jeep is planning to bring the Avenger to India, it will need to load it with features. The Avenger will need features like a big infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats etc. Jeep will also need to improve the fit and finish to attract customers. Also, ADAS is becoming a norm in this segment and Jeep will need to offer it on the Avenger.
