The new 2016 Jeep Compass is just arrived, and we hope it is going to wash it’s predecessors insuficiency and deficiency. The Compass unfortunately didn’t break out on the market with success and didn’t caused peoples admireing. A fortiori it got a lot of criticism, regarding to safety and tehnolgy equipment, which result was falling down under the expected level. There were two options: either they will discontinue the product for good, or they going to replan the whole designing and producing process. Luckily, we didn’t gave up on him, as the company announced the new Compass is coming back, with more serious attitude and appearance.
Exterior and Interior

The car now has a much more trapezoidal shape, but now it seems much modern. Beside this, some body lines took further voyage. Also the back of the Compass experienced some modifications. The car looks much more appropriate and more acceptable for the market. They were trying to erase mistakes and unfunctiona details, which brought a car in much worst condition. It still has a work to do, but now it have a more profitable design and look.

The upholstery is really amazing and nice, and the cabin is available in saddle brown perforated leather. The colors were changing as well. Despite to the latest innovations, and upgraded technology systems, it still have has shortcomings, but it’s certainly a better and much acceptable edition.
