This car broke 4 times when I reviewed it!

This is the brand !

It's the smallest you can buy, but is it the you can purchase? Well, it's time to discover!

For beginners, when it concerns the style, there's no rejecting the Avenger looks outstanding! It carries over much of the tried & relied on styling hints, such as the front grille, but in this mini type, we're truly amazed with the design. Our also includes a two-tone paint task, with a bright yellow body coupled with a black roof – we would definitely advise anybody picking this cars and truck opts for the very same!

Step within, and the great looks continue! We have actually got our hands on the range-topping Top edition, which means the interior comes with littles yellow trim throughout the cabin. Alongside this, you'll likewise discover a large digital dial display screen, paired with a large infotainment screen. The infotainment system isn't the best, but luckily it comes with cordless Apple CarPlay and Android Automobile. There are a number of physical environment control buttons, which are always excellent to see, although regrettably there are quite a few scratchy plastics and low-cost bits of material to be found.

The is the first all-electric Jeep you can buy in Europe. It comes with a 51kWh battery pack which benefits a claimed series of 250 miles. There is just one option of motor – it drives the front wheels just and can provide 154hp.

The Avenger begins with simply under ₤ 36,000, increasing to simply over ₤ 40,000 for the range-topping edition. So is it the ideal for you? You'll require to stick with Mat and see for yourself!

    Who would’ve have guessed an unreliable jeep. What a surprise.

      Jeeps are much more reliable than this pegeout branded jeep

    Considering the parent company, I’d say this perfectly represents an average ownership experience.

    It’s like Jeep said to their team “Look, i know we’re working on a Peugeot platform but our customers expect less of us” so they worsened the quality just enough so its familiar to pre-existing jeep customers

      Jeep prices go all the way up to $100,000. And oh by the way they’re still one of the most popular SUVs in the world and have been for 75 years.

      Jeep actually has really good warranty on their new cars. Just Empty Every Pocket refers to all the money you spend on modding the Jeep.

    It’s hilarious that this car was voted “car of the year” even before it was manufactured. I’m sure no money exchanged hands for that award. Gotta say it’s nice to look at and I guess it could be good with the glitches ironed out.

    We really would like to know what the excuse for the breaks’ fault was.
    Also, why in heaven they would not try the car before giving it for testing. Seems to much unlucky even considering Murphy’s law

    I think you’ve been too generous with the final vote.
    If the looks isn’t appealing to someone, there’s no reason to prefer this over any other similar EV.

    1. Purwanti Allan Avatar
      Purwanti Allan

      Should’ve been AVOID.

    2. Muhluri Avatar

      it’s not even about the looks, some people want to own a jeep but can’t afford a real jeep

    3. jorehir Avatar

      @Purwanti Allan That, on the other hand, is too harsh. It disregards the fact that it’s a decent car. And also the fact that it looks ace to many people’s eyes.

      The brake fault is likely a stupid sensor error, so i wouldn’t give it too much weight.

      All in all, it’s a CONSIDER.

    4. Alpha13 Avatar

      @jorehir The AVOID verdict definetly seems fair. Having 4 errors like that in a day is worse than buying an old car from the second hand market. It doesnt justify itself either with being powerful or being fun and thus the reduced reliability. And being an electric it has less boot space but still a hump in the floor at the backseats so its not that practical either.

    5. jorehir Avatar

      @Alpha13 It’s not 4 errors, but 1 error repeated until repaired.

    Apart from reliability, build quality, practicality, performance, range and price, this seems like a pretty decent car. How short is this shortlist its going on?

      Too funny. I’m reminded of the Monty Python skit “what have the Romans ever done for us” (Life of Brian) by your comment. (Apologies if you’re under 50, you’ll have no idea what I’m on about)

      All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    Can you mention the quality of the audio systems in your reviews? It’s obviously a subjective aspect, but you’ll surely be able to discern the good from average from bad. It’ll be a nice touch to the reviews to cover something that is so commonly skipped by almost every review.

    I have looked at so many car reviews, and this has probably been the worst in relation issues that Matthew pointed out, so many of them, i was surprised at the final shortlist rating. I think it shouldn’t make it past consider!

    Definitely AVOID with all the brake issue. There are plenty of other options.

    It’s very important that automobile manufacturers provide the media with press vehicles that have been thoroughly inspected to ensure the best test results possible.
    In this instance this Jeep broke down just 4 times. If it hadn’t been thoroughly inspected it would have broken down at least 10 times. Congratulations Jeep! Well done!

    I remember watching the studio walkaround videos of this car and was quite looking forward to seeing reviews of it in action.

    This review has definitely changed my opinion, braking faults aside, the cheapness of the interior was enough to put me off.
