Jeep compass diesel automatic

Jeep is exporting a lot of diesel automatic variants to Australia and japan. Should I go for the petrol automatic now or wait for diesel automatic to launch here. I am planning to get a five seater SUV and keep the car for more than 7 years.

There is no doubt that the Jeep Compass is a lovely car. The diesel version will be cheaper to run. Automatic could be worth the wait.
On the other hand I would draw your attention to the new Tata Nexon too !
Tata seems to be churning out some rather excellent cars lately. You will gain a lot from this purchase too !
