A little more than 4 years after its debut, the second generation of the Jeep Compass offers a surface restyling. The update, light, mainly concerns the interior. Multimedia content and finishing are the main points of improvement.
The Compass is not really the most popular compact SUV in Europe, where the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA represent the bulk of the market. This mid-term overhaul, albeit minimal, is an opportunity for Jeep to shed some light on the Compass. Chance of the calendar, the restyling coincides with the 80 years of the brand.
Without changing its look in a noticeable way, the Compass cru 2021 still receives a completely redesigned front face: new shield, redesigned optical units. The 18-inch rims are also specific to the special “80th anniversary” series, the only finish offered at launch.
Cockpit revised, engines unchanged
The evolution is more obvious on board. The finish and the materials used are a little more neat than before, and the arrangement of the dashboard, horizontally, receives a large touch screen.
The arrival of the restyled Compass is scheduled for spring. No changes to be expected in the range of engines, recently revised and reduced in order to promote the CO2 balance. As a reminder, this consists of a 1.3 GSE petrol (130 or 150 hp), a 1.6 Multijet Diesel (120 hp), and a PHEV hybrid based on the 1.3 l GSE petrol (190 and 240 hp).
