Should You Get The Jeep Compass 2021?

The Italian carmaker had launched the SUV in a new avatar at the start of this year. The upgrade saw Compass get better both aesthetically and equipment list. For starters, the front look is the most noticeable change from the outing model. Carrying the typical Jeep grille, the SUV is now almost free from chrome. The seven-slat grille gets an anodised gun-metal grey finish that looks quite striking. The new LED highlights further attenuate the front look and make the SUV even more appealing. From the sides, there’s no change, other than the new set of alloys. In the rear, nothing much has changed, and it’s just the new taillamp.

The main area where we notice the maximum change and upgrade is the interiors. Apart from the seats, almost everything is new when compared to the outgoing model. The main central attraction is the new 10.1-inch U-Connect touchscreen. The large screen gives a table like feel and offers much sharper and faster operation. The front seats are 8-way power adjustable with memory function. The massive double-pane sunroof adds to the luxury bits. Other driver aids include a 360-degree camera, ventilated seats, trip and driver analytics, stolen vehicle assist and more.
