You can add the Jeep Renegade to the list.
Im not sure anyone is actually going to miss that.
I will say the power numbers out of the new 1.3T seem good 177/200. Do I want it? No. Would I pay for it? No. Is it a decent rig? Couldn't say.

New Aisin chief ready to scrap old products

"Scrap and build will be one policy that we take on," Ise said. "If the product does not have a good future, then it will be a candidate for scrapping."

Aisin Seiki is reviewing its product lines. And manual transmissions are on the chopping block, he said. Indeed, Aisin Seiki consolidated its Japanese production of manual transmissions to create factory space for more automatic gearboxes.

"The objective is to free up key resources and focus them on more important areas," he said.
