This was how the Compass should have looked from the start.

They ARE noticable smaller, from what I gather it is just an update, not a whole new model. Think plastic surgery to the face only.

A corporate type nose may work for brands like Audi, but it works for very few other makes, some styling just doesn't transfer over to smaller vehicles.

This is particularly bad though, not sure if I've ever seen a design where it looks so much like one design team has designed the back, another team the front.

I wouldn't be caught dead in one! lol

EW I thought they discontinued that miserable god-forsaken excuse for a Jeep.

Re: Is this good or bad......squashed grand!!!

I am saddened by this. It really chips away at the exclusive look of the JGC.

I know they are different vehicles but copying the flagship and sticking it on the econturd was a bad idea.
