Full prices and specs are yet to be announced for the UK, but it looks as though the Compass will be priced towards the upper reaches of the class, while the Trailhawk versions will likely be far too expensive to recommend. Running costs will be comparative to the reasonable Renegade, although being bigger and heavier means the Compass will be less efficient.
Resale values are yet to be released for the SUV, however Jeep has a strong reputation for this so it is likely to hold onto its value well, possibly better than rivals.
UK spec levels are yet to be finalised, but a 5.0in touchscreen is standard, with Jeep’s latest UConnect system fitted. This can be upped to 7.0in and 8.4in. The touchscreens are bright and responsive, but not quite as intuitive as the best in class. Limited and Trailhawk models get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard.
There’s also a driver’s display between the dials that features either a 3.5in or configurable, full-colour 7.0in display that shows things like sat-nav directions and vehicle settings – depending on specification.
There’s a generous amount of safety features as well, including six airbags, forward collision warning and lane departure warning, while blind-spot monitoring and ‘rear cross path detection’ are optional.
