Love the outdoors? Love adventure? Love 4x4s? If this is you, then you could well be on the lookout for a brand new 2012 Jeep Compass. Everything from safety to space, style to sumptuousness and sturdiness to the ability to explore the great unknown is what you’ll find the fabulous Jeep Compass offering potential buyers.
A tall ride height gives the Jeep Compass a magnificent view of the road ahead and the scenery outdoors. Seating is excellent and, with the Limited models, the leather upholstery is breathtaking. Power adjustable (heated) front seats in the Limited model provide the perfect match to anyone’s’ body shape, while the steering height is also adjustable. Preferring the cloth trim that is found in the Jeep Compass Sport models, you are going to enjoy a modern fabric that is designed to be cleaned easily, looks smart and repels odours. Both Sport and Limited Compass models come with electric windows, air-conditioning and premium sound (with audio controls on the steering wheel). There are plenty of options like satellite navigation, DVD entertainment and massive wheels available – however, do check Jeep Compass Limited features, as they may come already equipped with what you may be wanting, depending on the deal.
At the wheel, the Jeep Compass has a beautiful ride quality, while the steering feedback for the driver is good. A secure hold over the road ahead is the experience you get in even the wettest road conditions. The Jeep Compass helps make you feel safe, and with many modern active safety features, you have a very commanding control over the road conditions. Electronic Stability Control with Brake Assist, All-speed Traction Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation and an Anti-lock Brake System are top features. Head off-road, and the superior ground clearance and combination of the above systems along with a Brake Lock Differential system aid the AWD traction to give you the classic Jeep off-roading ability – that really the likes of Land Rover replicate or better.
With crash statistics not being something we want to dwell on, it is comforting to note that the Jeep Compass models provide advanced multi-stage driver and front-passenger air bags, side-curtain air bags and active head restraints. Features like the Sentry Key anti-theft engine immobiliser and security alarm look at safety from another angle, and work to prevent theft of your classy looking new Jeep.
A completely fresh look to the latest Jeep Compass has given the model an attractive appearance that has plenty of trendiness and sophistication. You look special in any new Jeep, and the Jeep Compass is no exception. The Jeep Compass Sport boasts body-coloured components, door handles and grille with chrome accents for that extra bit of style. Sitting on large 17-inch painted aluminium wheels you have yourself a vehicle with a striking appearance. Powerful halogen headlamps (with a self- levelling system) and front and rear fog lamps finish of the Compass Sport’s excellent exterior package. Power folding, heated exterior mirrors come as standard.
Step up to the new Jeep Compass Limited model and the wheels are 18-inch in size and, though you may not see it from the ground, an aerial view shows a large powered sunroof seated in the lengthy roof design.
Grunt comes from a choice of two smooth engines. The 2.0-litre, DOHC petrol with 5-speed manual transmission (2WD) is the base option. The 2.4- litre, DOHC petrol with 5-speed manual transmission (4WD) is available for both the Sport and Limited models.
