New compact Jeep crossover aka Jeepster/Junior/Latitude spied inside-out

Here we have our latest spy shots of the new compact Jeep SUV, caught winter testing near the Arctic Circle in Sweden. Weather is getting warmer and the winter testing season is almost over, with automakers soon doing lot of testing on the Nürburgring and in Southern Europe.

This new baby Jeep has been caught already several times in Italy and Germany. A convoy of five prototypes near the Arctic Circle continues to have the same bulky camouflage, hiding squared off fenders, square head and taillights, vertical grille and circular fog lights.

One of the images shows little of the interior thanks to an open door, showing little more than we saw last month, when we got a quick look at the steering wheel.

We get to see heavily camouflaged dashboard with circular knobs and an infotainment system.

The new baby Jeep shares its platform with Fiat 500X, using an extended version of the Fiat 500L platform.

Power will come from a range of Fiat-sourced engines diesel and petrol engines.

The production model is likely to debut already next week at the Geneva Motor Show. The actual name is still a mystery and so far names like Jeepster, Junior, Latitude and even Laredo have been rumoured.

    Glad to see that Jeep will have a worthy entry in the compact SUV class. I hope it is at least somewhat capable off road.
