2017 Jeep Compass

2017 Jeep Compass first look


It looks like a mini GC Trailhawk. Gotta say, I think they did an incredible job with it. Hell of an improvement from what it was.

Not bad looking at all. Looks like a slightly smaller Cherokee, and I can see some Range Rover Evoque elements in it towards the back from the side profile. It should do well if they price it right.

Re: 2017 Jeep Compass

Wow...they did a very nice job with that one! I can see some influences there from JGC, too. That might bode well for the next-gen JGC if they are able to bring strong physical resemblance forward while adapting to the new platform.

But it's still a Compass.

Re: 2017 Jeep Compass

honestly not crazy about it. Too stylized, and Like the Cherokee and Renegade, it's too obviously front-drive derived. The front axle line should be pushed forward about a foot.
The only front-drive based crossover that's mitigated its "engine-forward" proportions is the BMW X1. All others simply appear dorky.

One reason I'm attracted to the Grand Cherokee is the almost perfect proportions. I know it's a RWD platform, but I wish Jeep would work harder to maintain those proportions on it's lessor platforms (like BMW did).

Re: 2017 Jeep Compass

Looks like GC junior ... Trying to figure out how is that going to fit size wise with Cherokee and Renegade? Obviously bigger then Renegade, smaller than Grand Cherokee but appears about the same size as Cherokee, no?

Re: 2017 Jeep Compass

It looks like the Cherokee and Renegade had a fairly good looking baby, which just happened to get Uncle Grand Cherokee's grille.

I agree it definitely looks like a mix between the Renegade and Cherokee which I'm sure is exactly what they are going for. Still not my kinda car, but I will say it is without a doubt an improvement of the previous Compass. For once they made a Compass looks like a somewhat respectable car. The Compass has always been one of the cheapest looking things on the street.

Re: 2017 Jeep Compass

The previous compass already looked nearly identical to the WK2, accepted the same headlights and all. Not sure about these comments saying it now looks closer to a WK2.



Just a little smaller, but otherwise basically the same.

I'd have to disagree with this. You can see the family resemblance in the front end but the overall vehicle looks nothing like the WK2, IMO.

How about WK2.5?

I like it. Maybe this is what we hoped for the Cherokee? Although, that's done very well. I think this remake will too.
