2017 Jeep Compass Changes
One of the many reasons why this car is popular is because this car always looked and looks like more of a Jeep than an SUV. This has good and bad sides. The good side is that Jeep keeps uniformity in its production house although it is an SUV. But this point has worked more as a bad point. This is because whenever people look for an SUV, they want something very elegant, exotic and classy.
Jeep has feel of more like a car which is rough from the exterior and tough from the interior, suitable mostly for woods. But people buy SUVs out of passion mostly and they like to have a nicely crafted appearance of their car. Therefore people started moving to other cars like Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4.
These are very potential competitors of upcoming Jeep Compass. Jeep is now concentrating on this part in making this ‘Jeep-like’ SUV more like a compact SUV. 2017 Jeep Compass has got very limited information available so far because the maker is being very cautious about not leaking out any details of the present facelift outside. One of the test models was spotted a few months back when the news of this car went viral.
