In Geneva, Jeep reveals to the European public a new production-intent concept of the compact SUV Compass featuring a unique exterior treatment and exclusive Black look. The Compass production-intent concept displayed in Geneva is in fact a design study that adds to Jeep Compass a number of styling cues and functional elements including exclusive black-gloss front-end accents, step pad and 18-inch aluminium wheels. All this provides to the compact SUV of the Jeep family a more distinctive appearance and personality.

The iconic, seven-slot Jeep front grille boasts black-gloss inserts that combine to black-gloss headlamp and fog lamp surrounds. A black-gloss treatment characterizes also the roof rails and step pads. Special 18-inch black–gloss aluminium wheels reinforce the look of the vehicle.

Upon entry, leather seats deliver a touch of exclusiveness to the cabin. New front and rear bright sill covers complete the unique interior of the Jeep Compass concept.

The four-wheel-drive configuration of the Jeep Compass production-intent concept is matched to a 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine delivering 163 hp of power and 320 Nm of torque. Benchmark all weather capability in its category is provided by the full-time, active Freedom Drive I four-wheel-drive system with Lock mode. The system is designed to give drivers year-round assurance with the ability to handle rough weather and low-traction conditions as well as slick roads that come with rain and light snow.

The rich equipment for comfort and safety on board includes a sophisticated 368-watt Boston Acoustics premium sound system with 9 speakers, voice-activated Bluetooth UConnect® Phone with UCI interface and UConnect® multimedia infotainment and navigation system with 6.5” touch screen, 30 gigabyte hard disk, USB compatibility, AUX port and DVD player.

Compact flagship of the Jeep brand, the Compass combines SUV features and functionality with performance, handling and fuel efficiency. Completely redesigned in 2011, Jeep Compass boasts a new stylish exterior, an upgraded, high quality interior compartment, improved driving comfort and handling, new 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine available in both low-and high output versions and a new 2WD drivetrain option alongside the proven Freedom Drive I four-wheel drive configuration that highlights Jeep Compass’ dual nature: 4×4 capability and on-road sophistication.

Two trim levels are available for Jeep Compass: Sport and Limited. Both versions are equipped with the efficient 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine delivering 163 hp and 320 Nm of torque fitted on both two-wheel and four-wheel drive Compass models. Low-output version of the 2.2-litre turbo diesel producing 136 hp is equipped on front-wheel-drive Compass models only.
