2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk – Exterior and Interior Styling

Our insider hints that the 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk was engineered within the US. It expresses the “small-wide” architecture borrowed from Fiat’s previous small-car setup, though it has been significantly modified.

This design showcases modular, interchangeable components that can alter the wheelbase, length, track, overhang and width. For this reason, the latest 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk is 2.6-inch longer than the Renegade. Regarding dimensions, this sports utility vehicle has a 103.8-inch wheelbase, and its total length from head to toe is 173 inches long. It also boasts a 73.8-inch width excluding the mirrors. And, the car’s height measures 64.8 inches high. Jeep stylists included the chrome trim wrapping around the Compass along with the glossy black painted roof.

The chrome slits of the grille have a gloss-black background. Headlamp bezels are likewise dark. Daytime running lights and turn signals are separated for easy visibility and distinction. The engineers also integrated an optional dual-pane sunroof that supplies an extra-large opening.

Interior Design

The all-new SUV displays a stimulating interior as the automaker has redefined the cabin. The inner section features quality materials, state-of-the-art structures and painstaking craftsmanship that blur the lines between sophistication and competence. Noise has been cut drastically using structural design and frame-under-glass door construction. Acoustic wheel liners and triple seals prove handy in limiting the noise.

The upcoming 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk also brings an 8.4-inch UConnect touchscreen stereo option, contrary to Renegade’s top 5-inch screen. This system takes into account the Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Navigation. The touchscreen highlights a customizable menu bar. You can use the “Send & Go” option to send destinations from your phone to the car. The SUV’s steering wheel comprises integrated controls for voice, audio and speed. All models receive a media hub that incorporates USB and auxiliary inputs, in addition to another USB port on the center console opposite the rear seats.

The 3.5-inch trip computer comes as standard. Apart from providing custom options, the supposed computer system also offers turn-by-turn navigation. Also, the system displays text messages. Interior touches comprise vinyl-wrapped door panels, contrast threads in the stitching, chrome vent bezels and soft-touch center armrest.

The 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk also emphasizes the passenger safety and security. The new car includes lane change monitor, adaptive cruise control, front collision warning and an optional automated parking. Additional security features include four-wheel anti-lock brakes, electronic high beams, all-row side curtain airbags, auto-reverse power sunroof, automated defogging, rear cameras and radar parking alerts among the rest.
