The New Jeep Compass has been developed to speak a more European language, courtesy of the enhanced quality of the finishes and its advanced on board technology. It also introduces major new features that take it to an even higher level in terms of design, safety, technology and functionality.
Where does its secret lie? In combining two souls of Jeep - the off-road and urban spirit - to meet the needs of customers in the C-SUV segment. Rational, factual people, they are also fascinated by the possibility of getting away from their daily routines: we call them "pragmatic dreamers".
The range of engines in the New Compass includes petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrains, all Euro 6D Final-compliant. This includes the updated version of the 1.6-litre Multijet II, now capable of delivering 130 hp at 3,750 rpm, and 320 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm, paired with a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. The update has seen a 10 hp increase in power delivery versus the 1.6-litre diesel engine available on the previous model, which also translates into benefits both in terms of consumption (10% lower) and CO2 emissions (11 g/km less in the WLTP cycle).
The petrol range includes a 4-cylinder 1.3-litre GSE turbo engine with two output levels: 130 hp and 270 Nm of peak torque in combination with a six-speed manual transmission; or 150 hp and 270 Nm of peak torque, paired with a Dual Dry Clutch Transmission (DDCT). Both petrol options are front-wheel drive.
The 4-cylinder 1.3-litre turbo engine with plug-in hybrid technology, 190 hp or 240 hp and 270 Nm of torque, six-speed automatic transmission and eAWD powers the 4xe versions and completes the New Compass engine range. Today '4xe' identifies all Jeep 4x4 vehicles featuring enhanced hybrid capability and performance, guaranteeing the best possible balance between efficiency, driving fun and attention to the environment.
