The Jeep Renegade's suite of safety and security features, along with the LED projector headlamps, have earned it the IIHS' Top Safety Pick rating.
The Jeep Renegade has earned a Top Safety Pick rating from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Automatic Emergency Braking and LED projector headlamps with automatic high-beam control give the Renegade its Top Safety Pick from the IIHS The rating applies to Jeep Renegade models produced after September of this year, when equipped with the Jeep brand's available Automatic Emergency Braking technology - Forward Collision Warning-Plus - and LED projector headlamps with optional automatic high-beam control.
These are among more than 70 standard and available safety and security features in the Jeep Renegade. In addition, the Renegade offers the segment's first Forward Collision Warning-Plus and LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus.
The Renegade's optional Forward Collision Warning-Plus system was graded 'superior,' the highest possible rating awarded by IIHS in Front Crash Prevention. The system initially warns the driver to take action to avoid a collision, and if the driver does not act in a timely manner, the system may activate the vehicle's brakes if collision risk remains.
The Top Safety Pick rating is also enabled by the Jeep Renegade's available LED projector headlamps with optional automatic high-beam control. The available feature switches headlamp modes between high- and low-beam function - depending on traffic conditions - without driver intervention.
The Jeep Renegade also recorded 'good' results - the highest possible crashworthiness rating - in five additional crashworthiness tests.
