Default Re: Baby SUV spotted in USA. Jeep? Fiat?

The Jeep compact SUV may be called the "Laredo", as per Autonews Europe. It will go on sale in Europe in summer 2014 and a subsequent Indian launch is also on the cards.

Quote:
The Jeep will debut at the Geneva auto show in March and will go on sale in Europe in the summer and in the United States late this year.

Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a call with analysts on Wednesday that the model will not be called Jeepster, as some reports have said, but he did not disclose the model's name.

The Jeep could be call the Laredo, two industry sources told Automotive News Europe. The Laredo is an iconic name for Jeep and was used for entry trim levels of Jeep models.

Essentially Fiat's version of the Jeep Renegade, the 500X looks like a five-door 500 with an increased ride height. The camouflage hides a lot of details but we can see the model will feature familiar styling cues and a steeply sloped rear window which will likely limit the cargo capacity. The spy photos also reveal the interior will have two-tone seats, a meaty steering wheel and what appears to be an infotainment system.

Engine options will likely be shared with the Jeep Renegade, so choices could include:
A 1.4-liter MultiAir2 four-cylinder with 138 bhp (103 kW) and 170 lb-ft (230 Nm) of torque
A 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo four-cylinder with 160 bhp (119 kW) and 170 lb-ft (230 Nm) of torque
A 1.4-liter MultiAir2 Turbo four-cylinder with 168 bhp (125 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque
A 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark four-cylinder with 184 bhp (137 kW) and 177 lb-ft (236 Nm) of torque
A 1.6-liter MutliJet II turbodiesel four-cylinder with 118 bhp (88 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque
A 2.0-liter MutliJet II turbodiesel four-cylinder with outputs of 138 bhp (103 kW) and 167 bhp (125 kW)

Good catch! Finally the 500X is taking some solid shape. But the rear does not look as sporty as the concept that Fiat showed last year, it rather looks like the Megane. And surely looks longer than 4m - all the more reason for them to get the 1.6 MJD ( excise duty benefit is gone anyway )

Is this the affordable CSUV Jeep will be bringing to India? Autocar india says so.(Source)
But now one thing is sure. The Mahindra TUV 3OO designers got inspired by this.
