Jeep Compass Limited Review

...and have now pen-stroked a car pleasing to the eye

Sometimes trying a little too hard could be a bad thing. That was the impression we got with the first generation Compass. Its round headlamps and front grille was in all an odd execution of styling, giving a nod to its serious off-roading sibling, the Wrangler.

The second generation Jeep Compass still stays true to some the chunky and beefy influences its predecessor left off with, but Jeep has shaken off the tacky styling and have now pen-stroked a car pleasing to the eye.

But not only the car is all-new, but with Chrysler coming under the influence of Fiat, means that the company would no longer be reliant on parts from the Mitsubishi and Hyundai parts bins, a result of their previous Daimler-Chrysler arrangement. The new FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) platform is shared with the Fiat 500X and similar Jeep Renegade.

There are a few stylistic cues which visually brings this car closer to the facelifted business-like Grand Cherokee. Featuring edgier seven-slot chrome-accented front grille styling with complementing headlamps, squared-off wheel arches with “protecting” plastic wheel guards.

At the rear, a distinctive up-sweeping “C” pillar breaks the rear windshield from the rest of the glass, with a tastefully designed chrome accent strip descending from visually “holding” up the roof, to “holding” up the rear windshield. Styling-wise, the Compass hit it spot-on with a fair mix of appealing urban-chic and rugged-going ambition.
