Ahead of its arrival in January, Jeep Ireland has revealed pricing and specification details for its latest SUV, the stunning all-new Compass.
Starting at €27,995 for the 120 HP 1.6 MultiJet Diesel engine, the all-new Jeep Compass offers contemporary but authentic Jeep design, an array of advanced user-friendly connectivity and safety technologies, excellent on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom and 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 140HP at 5,000rpm in combination with the six-speed manual gearbox and 4x2 configuration.
The diesel range comprises the efficient 1.6-litre MultiJet engine delivering 120HP at 3,750rpm, as well as a 2.0-litre MultiJet engine delivering 140HP at 3,750rpm. 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 170HP in combination with nine-speed automatic transmission and 4x4 configuration completes the engine offerings available.
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 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 passenger comfort.
Driver and passenger safety were paramount in the development of the all-new Jeep Compass, which attained a five-star Euro NCAP score. 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, and Automated Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist.
