Jeep's upcoming compact SUV, expected to revive the Jeepster name, has been spied testing somewhere in the US this week.

Earlier photos saw the new model wearing the skin of a Fiat 500L - the little 500 hatch's supersized sibling - but these latest shots offer a first look at its complete shape.

Heavy camouflage still obscures the Jeepster's finer details, but it is now clear that we can expect the brand's iconic styling to dominate - rather than the modernised styling of the new Jeep Cherokee small SUV.

These latest shots also give fans a first look at the new crossover's cabin, revealing a familiar Jeep steering wheel design - but little else.

The Jeepster is expected to share its underpinnings with Fiat's coming 500X SUV, and reports suggest we can expect both front- and all-wheel-drive configurations. Off-road capabilities are not likely to be a priority, however.

Powertrains are also likely to be shared with the 500X, and production of both models is expected to be carried out at Fiat Chrysler's plant in Melfi, Italy. The facility is currently undergoing a US$1.3 billion upgrade.

Rivals for the so-called Jeepster will include MINI's Countryman, the quirky Nissan Juke and - depending on the market - the Buick Encore and Opel Mokka twins.

At this stage, right-hand-drive production is still to be confirmed, meaning that an Australian debut remains unclear.
