It’s time for a substantial restyling for the Jeep Compass. The American brand’s compact SUV has undergone a mid-career makeover by the design team led by Davide Calonaci. The exterior has a more sophisticated and modern look that suits its urban character. While the previous version featured separate fog lamp housings, these elements are now integrated within a single large central opening, defining the layered construction of the front end. Horizontal elements underline the linearity of the design, while the sculpted surfaces and three-dimensional effect of the seven-slot grille emphasise its dynamism.

The interventions add personality and character to the model, which now has three different souls depending on the version chosen: the more functional and urban soul of the Limited version, which features black bumpers and new 18-inch alloy wheels; the more elegant soul of the S version, with metallic grey trim, body-coloured bumpers and new 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels; and the off-road performance soul of the Trailhawk, which features a specific grille treatment, matching fog lamp surrounds, a more prominent protective plate and 17-inch off-road-specific wheels for a more aggressive and technical look.

The Jeep design team’s goal was to completely redesign the interior, giving it a more modern and sophisticated style, consistent with that of the exterior in terms of elegance, linearity and high-tech language. At the same time, the interventions concerned the need to rethink the interior volumes to increase practicality, offer a more functional use of space and a greater inclination towards personalisation. The update involved all the elements with work on the dashboard, central tunnel and door panels. The restyling also involved the high-tech compartment: at the centre of the dashboard is the new 10-inch floating display while the instrumentation is transmitted by a 10.2-inch screen in front of the driver. The multimedia system is the UConnect 5.
