The Compass now comes with an automatic gearbox with the diesel powertrain in the Limited Plus trim
When Jeep launched the Compass in 2017, it quickly became the talk of the town. The Compass established itself as an accomplished SUV and gained a lot of praise. However, the Compass did not come with a diesel automatic initially but was added in the top-spec off-road focussed TrailHawk trim. The problem was it was the sole trim to offer the diesel automatic combination and buyers had to spend more for the off-road hardware they would seldom need for the convenience of an automatic. Now Jeep has launched the diesel automatic in the Limited Plus trim that is cheaper and better equipped than the TrailHawk.
Exteriors – The Compass has lost little of its character despite being three years into the lifecycle. It is still a handsome looking SUV with great road presence. The Limited Plus variant with stylish alloys and chrome garnishes looks really elegant. The large Compass badging on the door and the traditional seven-slatted grille bring some attitude to the table. We are amazed at the level of detail on the Compass’ exterior. There are small animals, classic open-top Jeeps and the iconic grille stickers placed around the front and rear windscreens. There are more such inscriptions on the inside too!
