Why the Jeep Renegade is a Perfect First Car
As the temperatures heat up to a miserable climax, it can only mean one thing — summer is almost over. It doesn’t make much sense, but those first few weeks of school, the end of summer, are some of the hottest of the year. As the kids head back to the school, the question lingers: how will they get there? Many teenagers are going to be driving themselves to school this fall, some for the first time, and they will need a safe vehicle to take them there.
At Hebert’s Town & Country Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we think the 2018 Jeep Renegade is that car. The Renegade is affordable, gets good gas mileage, looks attractive and it has received high safety ratings. With all these features, the Jeep Renegade is the perfect first car for any teenager.
When looking for a first car for your young adult, the primary concern for many people is safety. Let’s face it, teens tend to have more accidents because they’re inexperienced. With this in mind, it is important that young drivers take every precaution possible. Many older cars do not have the same safety features as new cars do, placing the driver in potential danger. This isn’t a problem with the 2018 Jeep Renegade. The 2018 Renegade has seven airbags in the event of a collision as well as multiple features to prevent an accident from even happening.
Available with the 2018 Renegade are lane departure warning, forward collision warning and a rear park assist system. The lane departure warning alerts the driver when he or she is drifting from the lane and even provides a small amount of assistance to keep the steering wheel straight. The forward collision warning uses radar to detect when the vehicle may be approaching an object too quickly and alerts the driver with audio and visual warnings. This system may even apply the brakes to lessen an impact or possibility of a potential collision. Finally, the rear park assist uses audio and visual signals to alert the driver of obstacles when they are too close. All of these features combined make the 2018 Jeep Renegade an extraordinarily safe vehicle for first-time drivers.
Another key feature many look for in a first car for teenagers is the price. This is another area where the 2018 Jeep Renegade excels. With a starting price of just $18,445, the Renegade is one of the most affordable small SUVs on the market.
Along with safety and a low price, the 2018 Renegade gets some of the best gas mileage of comparable vehicles. The Renegade gets up to 31 MPG, so you will save money both in the initial purchase and at the gas pump.
Finally, the 2018 Jeep Renegade has all the best features of a Jeep. Let’s face it, teenagers care a lot about their image and a big part of that image is what kind of car they drive. Being seen driving a Jeep is just cool. The 2018 Jeep Renegade has the attractive body style and 4×4 capabilities many have come to expect from Jeeps.
As school starts up again this fall, consider how your kid will be getting there, whether they drive down the road or a few hours away for college. The 2018 Jeep Renegade is a great option, and we have plenty at Hebert’s Town & Country. Come see us for a test drive and the best deals in the Shreveport area!
