Jeep Compass Exterior Design

 In terms of design, Jeep Compass is much more similar to the Grand Cherokee. The Jeep Compass SUV gets the 7- slat chrome finished front grille. The higher model comes with  LED DRLs and projector headlamps. The side profile of the badass Jeep Compass is featured by squared-off wheel arches and a thick C-pillar. There is a chrome strip that runs along the window line and wraps around the rear windshield. The bumper too is wide and its lower end is black matte to avoid any scratches on the paint.  The SUVs from Jeep are marked for best off-road capabilities.

Jeep Compass Interior Design

The interior is also based on much similar like other existing Jeep models. The brand new Jeep SUV offers dual tone interiors with black and sky grey colours. The Jeep Compass features 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, engine start/stop, three-spoke steering wheel with mounted controls and climate control. The Highline models will offer a luxury dual-tone exterior paint job with added premium features inside the cabin to enhance the premium appeal. It also comes with an electronic parking brake, which can be seen on all the models. The offering space is also better. The front seats are very comfortable, especially on long journeys. There is more than sufficient headroom and knee room for tall persons too. The boot size is also large enough making it more than sufficient in size to carry luggage for an entire weekend and the seats fold 60:40 making it a lot more flexible too. In terms of safety, 2 airbags and ABS will be offered as a standard feature.  Indian version Jeep Compass doesn’t offer a sunroof, which is very disappointing.

Jeep Compass India – Rivals

The Jeep Compass will engage in a battle with rivals like Hyundai Tucson, Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. However, the Compass will likely face more heat from the top-end models like Tata Hexa, Hyundai Creta and the Mahindra’s flagship XUV500 as well due to its aggressive pricing.
