Upcoming 7-Seat Jeep Compass Spied On Test Overseas
The SUV, which will be put on sale next year, will carry a different styling both at the front and rear in comparison to its 5-seat sibling.
The upcoming 7-seater variant of the Jeep Compass has been spied on test alongside the 5-seat version overseas.
Set to be unveiled later this year, the SUV (code-named H6) comes with notable differences that will help accommodate more occupants, while also differentiating the model from its 5-seat sibling.
Upfront, the Jeep Compass 7-seater spied on test sports a new bumper which reminds one of the 2021 Grand Cherokee L.
When looked at from the side (sadly the only available angle of the test mule), it is clear that the roofline of the 7-seat Compass is taller and does not slope much towards the rear.
Likewise the waistline does not rise upwards and is more flat, resulting in larger windows for the rear doors, which carry the same design as the 5-seat model.
Although the rear quarter glass is covered, it will evidently be larger than the one on the 5-seat Compass, so that third row occupants don’t feel claustrophobic.
The spied test mule of the Jeep Compass 7-seater has a larger rear overhang, which might help provide last row passengers adequate legroom and some space to put things even with all 3 rows of seats in place.
From the spy shots, the larger Compass seems to have gone for a more upright rear section, which, once again, might take styling cues from the Grand Cherokee L.
The shape of the tail lights is not known, but, they are likely to carry the 5-seat variant’s design, much like the interior, which is also expected to stay similar, apart from sporting different upholstery and more features.
Powering the car would be a 2.0-litre turbo diesel that can be had either with a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic transmission. A petrol variant is unlikely to be offered, but the SUV will come with 4-wheel-drive.
Production of the 7-seat Jeep Compass will commence in India by April next year, shortly after which the car will be put on sale.
