First look: 2011 Jeep Compass

Well here it is!
Not as homely as I first thought.
Very much upgraded. Hopefully mechanically as well.
All said and done, I still love the look of the original Compass.

Nice looking, but I am partial to the older style.

I don't like it. I think Jeep is losing it's identity.
Also they're team'n up with Fiat in Europe. Fiat isn't a very popular brand in Britain.

FIAT........ Fix It Again Tomorrow !!!

Don't look as much like a Jeep save the seven slot grille. One of the reasons I got my 08 is that it was a comfortable type Jeep and looked like one!

I guess it's OK but I too think they should have kept the headlight tradition. I guess the youngsters like a lot of lights today. Or wait, could it be cheaper?

I do agree that there are certain style cues that are signatures for and specific to certain brands/models. That being said, my XJ has square headlights and an 8-slot grille, still no less a Jeep. This is definitely a good chance to start a conversation in here lol, but I am going to have to go against the grain here and say I really do like the change (and love that color in the pic, too!), for several reasons, which I can elaborate on if anyone is interested, and would consider buying a 2011 Compass.

Now, here's a question. Had this been done in reverse, if the style of the 2011 had been the original look for the Compass and the style of the Compass now were to be the change for 2011, "going retro Jeep" if you will, would any of you see it differently?

If you drive the original compass you drive a Compass
If you drive the new Compass you drive a GC mini-me.

Can I vote again? I like the new look. More of a "grown up" version of the old Compass.
