Yeah, this has been posted before.

You think the new front end makes the Compass ugly? Really? I think it makes the Compass look much better than before. But it sucks that they made it look so much like the WK2.

definitely a family resemblance.. though i don't think anyone would mistaken a Grand for a Compass.

Re: The new Compass stole the WK2s front end...

It's a Compass....but it looks better than before and it is what Chrysler needs for some sales volume and hopefully some numbers to help their CAFE. The new Compass sort of has the profile of a Kia Sportage (which the teenagers in my area think looks cool). The teenagers also think the new Grand Cherokee looks awesome, so the resemblance to the Grand helps the Compass but not at the expense of the Grand, IMHO.

Re: The new Compass stole the WK2s front end...

At least the Fiat Multipa is not the ugliest anymore. It held that title for a long time. They are keeping it in the family though

I think that Jeep has figured out that when a car look like a girls car, no one will buy it LOL
