Which used Jeep Compass 4x4 should I buy?
The range starts with Sport, which gets you air-conditioning, cruise control, 17in alloy wheels, electric windows and mirrors, along with an Aux input for the stereo. Sport+ improves on this with a USB connection and Bluetooth.
If you are interested in a Jeep Compass, though, you are more likely to find examples in high-spec Limited form. There is some additional chrome trim pieces on the outside, larger 18in alloy wheels and leather seats. You may also find on with the optional 6.5in touchscreen sat-nav system, but it is nothing particularly important to search for as it is likely to be out of date by now and your phone will do the job better. It does have a 30Gb hard drive for storing music and video, though, so it might be worthwhile if you like your music or you’re a budding film-maker.
The 70th Anniversary model is quite rare and it is more of a styling package that is hardly worth seeking out.
Diesel would be the way to go if you need to keep running costs to a minimum. It is also the best engine option because the petrol engines lack the torque to get the slightly heavy Compass moving. You will also get four-wheel drive with it.
