Ahead of its arrival in January, Jeep Ireland has revealed pricing and specification details for its latest SUV, the stunning all-new Compass.
And with a starting price of just €27,995 for the 120 horsepower 1.6 MultiJet Diesel engine, the all-new Compass appears to represent good value for money.
The all-new Jeep Compass offers a combination of attributes including contemporary but authentic Jeep design, an array of advanced user-friendly connectivity and safety technologies, claimed excellent on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom and again claimed best in class 4x4 off-road capability.
In Ireland, the Compass engine range includes three diesel engines and a petrol 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine – delivering 140 horsepower at 5,000 rpm in combination with the six-speed manual gearbox and 4x2 configuration.
The diesel range comprises the efficient 1.6-litre MultiJet engine delivering 120 horsepower at 3,750 rpm, as well as a 2.0-litre MultiJet engine delivering 140 horsepower at 3,750 rpm. Both of these engines are mated to the six-speed manual transmission, with the latter coming in 4x4 configuration.
A higher output version of the 2.0-litre MultiJet engine delivering 170 horsepower in combination with the nine-speed automatic transmission and 4x4 configuration completes the engine offerings available on the all-new Compass.
Three equipment levels of Jeep Compass are offered in Ireland: Sport, Longitude and Limited. The Sport version’s standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lights, leather steering wheel with audio controls, air conditioning, cruise control, forward collision warning plus, lane departure warning plus and a 60/40 split folding rear seat.
The all-new Compass has a distinctive, contemporary design with a wide stance and exceptional glass-to-wheel proportions. The SUV is immediately recognizable as a Jeep thanks to characteristic traditional design cues, such as the seven-slot grille and the trapezoidal wheel arches.
The all-new Compass is the first Jeep SUV to offer the new Uconnect system, delivering communication, entertainment and navigation features that enhance both the driving experience and the passengers’ on-board comfort. The new Uconnect system has been improved to include easy-to-use features, enhanced processing power, faster start-up times and touch-screens that display high-resolution graphics.

The car offers more than 70 available active and passive safety and security features including Forward Collision Warning-Plus, LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus, Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path detection, Parkview® rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines, Automated Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, Electronic Stability Control (ESC ) with electronic roll mitigation and six standard air bags.
