The trend of converting 5 seaters to 7 seaters is still on and Jeep has joined the squad with the launch of the Jeep Commander in India. The production-spec Jeep Commander has once again been spotted in India and sources suggest that the American automaker will most likely name it as the Jeep Meridian in India. Apart from the name, what else we know is that we are not getting this SUV this year. We will receive the 7-seater version of the Jeep Compass in 2022.
This is the latest spyshot of the 7-seater version of the Compass but unlike others, the Jeep Commander looks well proportioned and will definitely give you a good road presence if we talk about a 7-seater car. The front fascia is the same with the 7 box grille along with sleeker fog lamps and a blacked-out centre. Further down, the fog lamps and the horizontal daytime running lights are housed lower in the bumper.
Talking about the rear end of the vehicle, you can see that the Jeep Meridian takes inspiration from the Grand Cherokee L flagship with the slim split LED tail lamps and a thin chrome strip running across the tailgate.
The cabin of the Jeep Meridian looks similar to what already get in the Compass. The majority of the cabin is black with chrome inserts and a floating infotainment system. The driver’s display is fully digital and the steering is a 3-spoke one. The Jeep Commander or the Jeep Meridian (whatever you may call it) will start rolling out in the international market soon but the Indian arrival is expected in 2022.
