Jeep has teased us with the interior pics of the upcoming 'Meridian' for the first time. The interior pics of the Jeep Meridian was unveiled by Jeep Brazil.
Jeep Meridian is the seven-seater version of the Jeep's most popular 5-seater compact SUV, the Jeep Compass, and it will be first launched in the South American market as the ‘Jeep Commander'.
From the teaser video released by Jeep Brazil, the interior of the upcoming Jeep Commander looks very similar to the newly facelifted Jeep compass in India. However, there are subtle changes you can easily spot and identify.
As the Jeep Commander demands a premium over the Jeep Compass, it is evident that the US-based company has decided to make the interior more upmarket to justify the ‘premium' price tag.
Starting with the dashboard, the leather on the dashboard has been replaced by more a premium feeling suede trim, the seats are now wrapped in more premium feeling brown leather and suede upholstery, and to complete the premium feel, the new Jeep Commander also gets rose gold accents on the lower centre console.
Moving to the second row, the Compass based seven-seater now gets 60:40 ratio split seats to allow access to third-row seating. Even though it is impossible to comment on the space available on the last row, we believe Jeep will at least provide basic amenities like blower-speed control and USB-charging ports to make it more hospitable.
Equipment-wise, the new Jeep Commander will be more than adequately equipped with features like a 10.25-inch digital drivers display, a floating 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment display, dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, steering-mounted controls and cruise control.
The Jeep Commander will also be packed well in terms of safety with features such as surround airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, electric parking brake, and ESC.
There is also a possibility that Jeep could add semi-autonomous driving techs such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and autonomous emergency braking.
Initially, Jeep Commander will be offered a 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine. We also expect Jeep to offer the Meridian with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine that does duty on the Compass albeit with a bit more power (170bhp vs 200bhp) to compensate for the additional weight.
Jeep may even offer the new Jeep Meridian with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system to improve the overall efficiency and keep emissions in check.

Jeep India has good reference material before them in form of Hyundai's latest three-row SUV. If Jeep Could make the second-row a bit more special and more welcoming than the Alcazar, it will also attract chauffeur-driven customers in India.
