After the recent redesign, it is pretty much for sure that the 2019 Jeep Compass will come without bigger changes. The famous crossover stands between Renegade and Cherokee, which is definitely a perfect measure for many drivers. It originally came in 2006 and it was in production for a full decade. During these years, it gained a very good reputation among compact crossovers and it is definitely one of the key competitors in the class. Last year we saw a launch of the second generation. The new model brings many novelties and improvements in pretty much all aspects. There is a new platform that brings many new technologies, but there is also a completely new styling. Also, the new generation comes with a much better interior design, characterized by much more technology features. So, if we consider all these novelties, it is clear that 2019 Jeep Compass remains the same.

The current generation of this compact crossover is present for a year. So, we don’t expect bigger changes for the 2019 Jeep Compass. It will continue in the same way, featuring all these novelties that came with the redesign. The second generation came with plenty of novelties. The first thing that you will notice is a completely new styling, which completely follows latest design language of the brand. Moreover, the new model looks pretty close to Cherokee. It features completely the same front end and pretty much same overall shape, just in a smaller package. The same thing is with the interior design. There is a new cabin that features better materials and much more technologies. The 2019 Jeep Compass will continue in the same way and feature company’s latest infotainment system, which is quite easy to use. There are total four trim levels in the offer.

There are also two diesel units from Fiat, with a displacement of 1.6 and 2.0 liters.
2019 Jeep Compass release date and price
The 2019 Jeep Compass is expected to come somewhere in late 2018. The price should remain pretty much the same. Base models will go around 21.000, while top versions could go up to 30.000 dollars. Competition in this segment is pretty tough. There are many compact crossovers in the offer, but this model has several trumps, such as affordable price. It probably won’t be able to compete with models like Honda CR-V or Mazda CX-5, but it will be good enough for crossovers like Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester, VW Tiguan etc.
