Review continues below...

The Compass is a further step into the mainstream for Jeep. Once known as a pioneering maker of off-road heavyweights, it has adapted its modern line-up to target family car buyers.

Having seen this strategy result in sales success with the Renegade, Jeep has now comprehensively reworked its bigger Compass model – the previous version went off sale two years ago – to relaunch it into the booming small SUV class.

The Compass is available with a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre diesel engine (the latter with either 138bhp or 168bhp), as well as a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol (also in two outputs). A nine-speed automatic gearbox is available with the 2.0-litre diesels, and both get four-wheel drive as standard.

Read on over the next few pages to get our impressions of the Compass and which versions we recommend.
