Jeepster – Jeep’s future European model, leaked image

The North American based automaker Jeep is planning to develop a new model for Europe, which will be smaller than the current Compass.

Even if the company didn’t say anything just yet about a possible European “baby” of the Jeep Compass, the guys at the Autobild magazine are announcing that the new model will most likely hit the market in 2013. According to our source, the new Jeep model, nicknamed the Jeepster, will be placed below the current Jeep Compass and it will also be, as you can see from the image posted above, better looking than its “father”.

The all-new Jeepster might be named the Scamp when it will hit the market and rumors say that it will come as a four-door, with front-wheel drive and a choice of a 1.4 liter and 1.6 liter engines, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. If the Jeep Scamp will actually hit the market in late 2013, as the guys at Autobild magazine are saying, the model will have some serious competition from the all-new Opel Mokka, the Corsa based SUV, from the Peugeot 2008, the 208 based SUV, from the new Ford EcoSport or from the segment’s current leader, the Nissan Juke. More details on the “Jeepster” will be announced at a later time.

    That rendering looks cool. I don't like the front bumper but the headlights and "Compass like" grille look good along with the body lines that we can see. It'd be cool in a 2 door option in my opinion but that's asking too much of Jeep's manufacturing plants I'm sure.
