Let’s face it, the Jeep Compass wasn’t the most attractive compact crossover when it first debut in 2007; a bulky, ugly front end leading to an equally odd shaped rear. Fortunately, Jeep does a lot of other things right, including the world debut of their all-new 2017 Compass in Brazil. And from the looks of it, the newly designed crossover is a huge departure from the outgoing version, and in all the right ways.

Styling-wise, the updated Compass looks beefier and capable of tackling tough terrain; the front-end is completely reworked and the rear end is more in line with the sleeker Grand Cherokee. Inside, the cabin appears to be more refined with a more streamlined layout and look.

The all-new Jeep Compass expands the brand’s global reach with a combination of attributes that includes 4×4 off-road capability, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, premium and authentic Jeep design, on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom, and a host of safety and advanced technology offerings.

The 2017 Compass will make it’s North American debut at the upcoming LA Auto Show in November, and hits dealers early next year in the first quarter.
