A Renegade prime minister

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, front, checks out rear legroom in the Jeep Renegade with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Chairman John Elkann. Renzi got a private preview of the subcompact SUV in Rome last month. The Renegade is Jeep's smallest model ever and the first built only outside the United States. It is produced at Fiat's Melfi plant in central Italy. It will go on sale in Europe in September and in the United States early next year.
