This model was shown up for the first time ten years ago, and it did not have a good start. Frankly, it was one of the most unloved crossovers ever. Today, I will write about the new model. The name of this car is the new 2017 Jeep Compass. According to the manufacturer, it represents a solid mix of off-road ability, good ride quality and interesting style. For a such small vehicle, the new 2017 model will have enough interior space for the comfortable ride, and this is one of its best characteristics. As for the competition in this category of industry, I will mention, the Jeep Patriot, Subaru Crosstrek and Mini Cooper Countryman, however, its main advantage is that the new Compass does not cost much.
2017 Jeep Compass Redesign
The outer appearance of the new 2017 Jeep Compass is not spectacular, however, it is a modern vehicle with some interesting curves. Potential shoppers are in a position to choose between four trim levels, the first two options are Sport and Latitude models. The third available model is the Limited and the fourth is the Trailhawk. The most distinctive exterior feature of the new 2017 model is its seven-slot grille. Its bird-like headlamps look very modern and I cannot forget a black-painted roof. The base Sport model is equipped with the 16-inch aluminum wheels, however, upper trim levels are enriched with larger wheels.
From the inside, the new 2017 Jeep Compass is a definitely roomy vehicle. The cabin is neat, we can find a lot of soft touch surfaces and the occupants will have enough of head- and legroom. As for the other standard interior equipment, there is air conditioning, two USB ports, keyless ignition and Bluetooth connectivity. It will have a 5.0-inch touchscreen audio system and 4-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary jack. Upper trim levels are enriched with the 8.5-inch Uconnect touchscreen, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and much more. For the safety problems, the list of available features includes anti-lock brakes, blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alert and lane-departure warning. Furthermore, I need to mention automatic windshield wipers and full barrage of airbags.
