    Rumorpile: Fiat, Jeep Plan A Crossover Offensive

      Fiat and Jeep have more Crossovers in the Works

    Fiat and Jeep are planning a big crossover offensive with a new larger model that will sit above the 500X/Renegade and a smaller model.

    Autocar reports the two automakers are working on a new crossover to take on the Nissan Qashqai - one of popular crossovers on sale in Europe. Fiat's version will become the flagship for the brand, while Jeep's version will take the place of the Compass and Patriot. It's expected that Jeep will show their version first sometime in 2016, followed by Fiat.

    Following that will be a much smaller crossover which will sit underneath the 500X/Renegade and take the place of the Panda Cross for Fiat. If given the green light, both models will be designed and sold for Europe only. No word on a possible release date.

    Be interesting to see how much the replacement for the Compass/Patriot will look like the US replacement version. I thought this year some time they would show off the replacement version here in the US.


    The smaller version below the Renegade would be a true competitor to the Mini. I would think Jeep would want that here also.

    Jeep better be ready to truly change the body style as the Fiat Panda is one ugly little subcompact.
