2018 Jeep Compass – official unveiling at the LA motor show

2018 Jeep Compass represents the new sense of the luxurious and refining, for a higher class of the buyers, shown after almost a decade of waiting of the something new in high class. The name Compass actually is not new for Jeep’s fans. When Jeep released two models in 2006, everybody knew what that happens. Compass supposed to be a luxury model for the high class, while Patriot, a second model that year was cheaper and simplest for a different type of the buyers. Everything was great until Jeep stopped with making Compass in 2011, replacing him with Grand Cherokee. Now is time for new Compass, under the old and known name.

Exterior

The new 2018 Jeep Compass is the only model now, so it should satisfy both types of buyers, the rich and poor ones. We cannot compare it with any other model from Jeep, but maybe Renegade, but only in something small details. However, it is still a luxury SUV crossover, much prettier than Grand Cherokee and surely more luxury than Renegade. The front of the car is well shaped, rounded with soft edges, and grille in shape of the wide line, separated in many small parts. It finishes with thin front lights, lower in the middle. The rear end is also rounded, has trapezoidal rear lights and rounded truck door. The roof is in black, separating the higher part of the car from the rest of it, while there is a version with chromatic mirrors and decoration lines.

Interior

The cabin of 2018 Jeep Compass is in gray-red color, with fine lines in some parts of the cabin. The large dashboard has many buttons, but well distributed, separated on small parts and groups, so the driver will not be forced to watch them during the driving. The equipment and ads are the highest in class, but there is still not much space as in other SUVs on the market.

Engine

There is more than one engine option in 2018 Jeep Compass. First ones are 1.4-liter petrol and 2.0-liter petrol engines, and second ones are diesel is in two sizes, 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter option, too. The diesel engine is already used in Fiat cars. For the US market, thus, there will be another version, 1.4-liter four-inline petrol engine with 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is also not in one variant, so it will be offered in three versions – six, nine, manual and automatic transmission. The drive goes on the front and all wheels opted from your choice.
