After numerous leaks and unofficial pictures, Jeep has finally unveiled 2017 ‘Compass’ compact SUV officially which will replace both the old Compass and the Patriot. The new Compass will get a slot between Jeep’s Renegade and Cherokee.
In terms of design, the new Compass looks like a smaller version of Grand Cherokee. It borrows many design cues from the larger sibling such as the characteristic grille, the small projector headlamps with LED DRLs, bumper design and chrome window lining. It also features a contoured hood, wraparound LED taillamps and a roof spoiler.
Inside, it features an 8.4-inch UConnect touchscreen infotainment system, a TFT display in instrument cluster, keyless entry with start/stop button, mode selector and Beats audio system with 9-speakers and subwoofer.
No details of the engines have been revealed yet but Jeep says that the new Compass will be a “truly global compact SUV”. It will be produced with 17 powertrain options for consumers in more than 100 countries around the world.
It will make it’s public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November. The bookings for the SUV are now open in Brazil where it’s priced between BRL 99,990 and BRL 149,990 (INR 20.29 lakh – INR 30.72 lakh). We can expect the SUV to arrive in India sometime close to the end of 2017.
