Jeep Compass 2019

Jeep Compass created quite a storm when launched last year. The pricing was a surprise and it instantly attracted many buyers. This is a product that suited many aspirations of Indian buyers. It is tough, good looking, with a great road presence and it comes with a great engine too. The SUV has been selling good numbers and has created a premium imagery. This is also something which is helping its growth.

The Compass has muscular looks and looks intimidating despite being not so big.  It was also priced well, hence fitted the bill perfectly.  The Jeep Compass 2019 will come next year. This will also be a locally manufactured SUV and will be exported to other car markets. The design and the powertrain will remain the same. However, a new automatic transmission for diesel will be introduced along with an advanced 4WD system. This will be the Jeep Compass TrailHawk and it ill be launched next year.

The Compass 2019 will be underpinned by the same platform, which is highly localized. The company would be increasing its localization and make the pricing more cost effective. The engines will be the same ones offered currently. A 1.4-litre petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel will be used. Both will have a six-speed manual transmission. Petrol will have a seven-speed automatic and the diesel will have 9-speed automatic. What else will the 2019 Jeep Compass offer? Read further to know more.

The boxy approach to the design will be evident from the side as this is the essence of the Compass. The muscular wheel arches will get cladding too at the bottom. A black roof will be offered on higher variants. A new design of alloy wheels will be seen on this model year. The integrated spoiler will be present. The bumpers of the Jeep Compass 2019 will see a restyling. They will have bolder lines.

The Compass 2019 will also see the introduction of a new body colour. This maybe a shade of brown. Too early to predict, though.The exteriors won’t see much of a change.
