The styling of the Jeep Compass borrows heavily from its elder sibling, the Grand Cherokee. It gets Jeep’s signature 7 slat grille. The headlamps feature LED DRLs and projector units, at least on the top end trims. The side profile of the Jeep Compass is characterised 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.
At the back, there are split LED tail lamps along with a dual tone bumper and a skid plate. The top end Limited variant of the Jeep Compass could feature a blacked out roof, roof rails and rear roof spoiler. Jeep SUVs are known for the off road capabilities and the Jeep Compass certainly looks the part.
Much like the exterior, the interior of the Jeep Compass borrow heavily from existing Jeep models. The steering wheel is quite similar to the Renegade while the centre console bears some resemblance to the Grand Cherokee’s. Top end variants will feature a touchscreen infotainment system. The Jeep Compass offers seating for five occupants. The cabin of the Jeep Compass comes finished in a combination of light and dark materials.
The fit and finish and the quality of materials is top notch. Even the features list is long enough, at least for the top-end models.
