The all-new Jeep® Compass offers an unmatched combination of attributes that includes legendary and best in class 4x4 off-road capability, contemporary and authentic Jeep design, excellent on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom and a full array of advanced user-friendly connectivity and safety technologies.
The new vehicle represents a key addition to the Jeep portfolio as it allows the brand to tackle the compact SUV segment, an extremely important and growing segment worldwide, that is expected to grow by almost 20 percent to 7.5 million in 2020. In Europe alone, this segment counts over 1.6 million today and is expected to achieve more than 2 million units by 2020.
In the UK, the all-new Compass offers two petrol and three diesel engines for a total of six different powertrain combinations and four different configurations: Sport, Longitude, Limited – the top-of-the-range trim in terms of refinement, standard technological contents and equipment – and Trailhawk, offering best-in-class Trail Rated 4x4 capability through specific standard features designed for customers demanding the most in terms of off-road capability. Sport, Longitude and Limited will be available from February while the Trailhawk will arrive later in the year.
With the introduction of the all-new Compass, the Jeep brand completes its offering in the UK, covering every single SUV segment. The new model will provide a compelling proposition to customers, by combining the legendary Jeep off-road capability with a distinctive design and a variety of user-friendly technologies that ensure a safe, comfortable and connected everyday driving experience.
The all-new Jeep Compass features a distinctive, contemporary design aesthetic, with a wide stance and exceptional glass-to-wheel proportions. The all-new compact SUV is immediately recognisable as a Jeep thanks to characteristic traditional design cues, such as the seven-slot grille and the trapezoidal wheel arches. Jeep designers gave the legendary seven-slot grille a fresh look by setting each of the individual chrome slots in a Gloss Black field. LED signature headlamp bezels featuring a black outline add personality and attitude to the face of the all-new Jeep Compass.
A fast, dramatic roofline and muscular fender flares create a stunning profile. A signature, full windows surround (DLO), with an element that tracks completely around the vehicle, along with the available Gloss Black painted roof add a unique, premium appearance. An available dual-pane sunroof designed to maximise surface and headroom delivers the open-air freedom that belongs to the Jeep brand. A standout feature of the rear of the Compass is its unique LED tail lamps: slim and rectangular in shape, the tail lamps flow into the liftgate for a commanding yet premium appearance instantly recognizable as a Jeep Compass on the road or trail.
For added consumer convenience, the all-new Jeep Compass features an available power tailgate helping ease cargo storage.
A total of 5 wheel designs are available on the new Jeep Compass. The new model rides on 16” (standard on Sport), 17-inch (standard on Trailhawk and Longitude), 18-inch (Standard on Limited) or 19” wheels (optional on Limited) providing drivers with confident traction in all road conditions.
Jeep Compass will be available in eight different exterior colors: Mojave Sand, Colorado Red, Hydro Blue, Brilliant Black, Minimal Grey, Magnesio Grey, Vocal White and Bronze.
The all-new Jeep Compass interior design features refined materials and technical details. The trapezoidal centre stack bezel is a characteristic Jeep design cue and sports colour and finish that complement the interior choice. The centre stack houses the 5.0 or 8.4-inch touchscreen displays of the Uconnect system. The centre console neatly integrates the functional features of the Jeep Compass, including gear-shift selection, Selec-Terrain controls, electronic parking brake, engine stop-start (ESS) controls, climate and volume control knobs, and easily-accessible media charging and connectivity ports.
The driver’s instrument cluster is thoughtfully designed and features a 3.5- or 7-inch LED driver information display. The full-color 7-inch screen displays information that the driver may configure for easier access while driving and will be standard on Limited and Trailhawk models.
Jeep Compass arrives in UK dealerships in February 2018
