Although it first appeared in Brazil, the Jeep Compass is an important product for the brand in several countries around the world. One of them is the United States, which is also waiting for the restyling of the SUV that will have competition from the new Ford Bronco Sport in 2021. The new images show us more details of the new Compass, which should adopt an identical look here.
The front will receive a new, honeycomb and more prominent grille, but maintaining the seven characteristic Jeep bars. The headlights will be more tapered and with a new internal part, keeping the light projectors. The fog lights will also accompany the LED technology and we can already see a little of the design format of the new bumper. Even so, the Jeep Compass continues with its identity that made it so famous around the world.
At the rear, the changes are lighter. The lanterns follow in two parts, but with a slight redesign in their format, despite a very similar arrangement of lights with the current piece. The rear bumper changes very little, unlike what happened with the front part. New wheels should complete the game.
Inside, despite few images and from a distance, a large (really big) screen attracts attention. However, it looks too big and is not integrated into the panel in any way, so it may just be a notebook or a temporary display. Other images we saw showed a floating type display, positioned higher than this screen. Inside, we still catch a glimpse of a new steering wheel and we won’t be surprised if the SUV adopts a larger screen for the instrument panel.
In Brazil, the most expected is that, together with a renewed look, the Jeep Compass will have the 1.3 turbo engine of the Firefly family. Produced in Goiana (PE), it will receive the new engine made in Betim (MG) replacing the 2.0 Tigershark, this imported one. And that will give them weapons to follow the lead, especially in a 2021 that still promises the arrival of VW Taos and the Toyota Corolla Cross, in addition to the possibility of the Ford Bronco Sport debut. Everyone is eyeing the Jeep’s lead among mid-size SUVs.
