They're basically the same, just the body panels are different. Since the Renegade is already being also made in Brazil, it wouldn't seem so out of place to make the 500X locally too, as it could eventually seem more attractive for customers who would otherwise look for the Bravo or the new Tipo which is not available here. OTOH both the 500X and the Tipo sedan are available in Argentina.
