Spy photographers caught the next-generation Jeep Compass undisguised this month during a photo shoot in Brazil.
Production of the redesigned Compass is to begin this month in Brazil, Jeep brand head Mike Manley said in July, and expand this year into China and then Mexico for sale in North America in early 2017.
The Compass was redesigned onto the platform shared by the Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500X, but is larger than both, according to earlier spy photos. The redesigned Compass replaces the current version as well as the Jeep Patriot.
FCA is expected to reveal the North American version of the Compass in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
