In an effort to further strengthen its position in the SUV segment, Jeep has shown interest in introducing a smaller SUV which will be positioned under the Renegade. As the automaker has entered the Indian market recently, the new vehicle is expected to rival the Ford EcoSport in India. As for the international markets, it will also compete against the Nissan’s Juke.

Jeep will be introducing the Compass SUV in India in 2017, while the EcoSport rival might be launched at a later date. The current lineup is known for its rugged built and impressive off-roading ability, and it is anticipated that the new model will also get Jeep’s tough DNA.  Moreover, the upcoming compact SUV will also get the four-wheel drive system along with good ground clearance figures. As for safety, it will offer ABS and airbags as standard.

The company has not revealed the technical specification for the vehicle yet and it is believed that that utility vehicle manufacturer will introduce the new model on the Renegade platform. Jeep will build the new compact SUV at Fiat’s Ranjangaon facility in India which is also used for the new Jeep Compass. Being locally made we expect it to be priced around the EcoSport range in the country. More details about the vehicle will be known in the coming days.
