Compass S Limited – There are few compact 4WD vehicles, the Jeep Compass S Limited is one of them and was updated just last year.
Sitting under the focussed Trailhawk, the Compass S Limited combines true 4WD capability with luxury and comfort. Perfect for forest trails, beach driving or trips to the snow as well as daily safety in the wet.
The Compass is powered by a 2.4L petrol engine with a smooth 9 speed automatic transmission and Jeep Active Drive 4×4 and Selec-Terrain (Tm) System. It can be a little thirsty around town but not bad on the freeway. Overall it’s easy, smooth, and zippy to drive.
The Compass S Limited we drove came with optional heated and ventilated front leather seats with electronic adjustments, 10.25-inch digital driver instrument cluster, Wireless charging and connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as updated advanced driver assist safety features. The 10.1 inch central touch screen houses the Jeep U Connect system for infotainment connectivity and additional technology.
Overall the Jeep Compass is a stylish 4WD SUV that allows the more adventurous owners the ability to explore further from the blacktop in comfort.
Priced from $46,500 plus the usual costs
