Sitting in the range in between the Renegade and Cherokee, the new generation Compass is finally making the trip across the pond and arrives in Europe with official details and pricing.
The Euro-spec Jeep Compass can be had in Europe from €24,900 if you live in Germany, and the model has arrived to take the fight to the popular choices in the segment, such as the Nissan Qashqai or the VW Tiguan. The Fiat Chrysler model uses the compact crossover platform that also underpins the Fiat 500X or Jeep Reengade, with the second-generation Compass offered with eight powertrain choices in Europe. The entry-level model is the .4-liter MultiAir2 four-cylinder packing 140 hp and 230 Nm, packing front-wheel-drive and six-speed manual. Go for the nine-speed automatic and all-wheel-drive, and you’ll get upgraded to 170 hp and 250 Nm. The Compass can be had as a port, Longitude, Limited, and Trailhawk trim.
Naturally the most popular choices in Europe will be the 1.6- and 2.0-liter versions of the Multijet turbo diesel, packing 120 hp/320 Nm, 140 hp/350 Nm, and 170 hp/350 Nm. Customers living in Russia, Africa, and the Middle East can also get a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter Tigershark with 150 or 184 horsepower. The off-road enthusiasts will be looking at the Compass Trailhawk and its €38,500 price, mated to the 170-hp 2.0-liter Multijet and nine-speed automatic. It has 2.5 centimeters of added ride height and a 30-degree approach angle, as well as the Trailhawk specific low-range mode.
