Jeep Europe has announced plans to unveil the updated Compass on April 6. The company has kept the details under wraps, but described the car as “a completely new model” that has “major changes in all its features and characteristics, including style, technology, safety, stability and functionality.
The European version should follow in the footsteps of the Chinese model that was unveiled last fall. As a result, expect a new front fascia with a redesigned grille and restyled headlights. The model should also have redesigned fog lights and a sportier lower air intake with rectangular inserts.
Updates should continue in the cabin as the Chinese-spec model has a new steering wheel, redesigned instrument cluster, and a free-standing 10.25-inch infotainment system. They are joined by a 10.1-inch digital instrument cluster, a new center console and a better switchgear.
The engine options were originally thought to remain, but Jeep’s reference to “major changes” in Compass performance and stability implies that we can expect greener powertrains. All details will be announced next month.
It’s also worth mentioning that Jeep is working on a seven-seat Compass that could be called the Grand Compass or Patriot. However, it remains unclear if this variation will debut on April 6.
