Do a road test of the new 2017 Jeep Compass in British Columbia, and you'll discover the finest way to experience the incredible beauty of our unique region. Before you choose your next compact SUV, make sure to check out the Jeep Compass; not only is it the most affordable 4X4 available in Canada, you'd be hard-pressed to figure out just how Jeep does it, given the quality-first approach taken by the automaker towards all aspects of the new Compass.
Tough enough to take on just about any off-road challenge, the 2017 Jeep Compass is also gentle enough to make driver and passengers feel coddled and cozy. Then there's the contemporary yet instantly recognizable styling, which announces the SUV as a Jeep through and through, but one with both feet in the modern era, and a mindset resolutely turned to the future. Can a car be both city and country? The Compass is sleek and urban, yet designed and built to take you far off the beaten track.
A 4X4 (rated the best in its class) designed specially to handle rough terrain and a wide range of driving conditions in all seasons, the 2017 Jeep Compass features a unique Selec-Terrain Traction Management system that includes up to five different driving modes (Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, and the Trailhawk-exclusive Rock Mode).
Fuel-Efficient, Not Power-Deficient
The Jeep Compass is fitted with a muscular but fuel-stingy 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir engine that can be combined, on 4x2 models, with a 9-speed automatic transmission (exclusive in its category); buyers of 4x4 versions can choose between a 6-speed manual gearbox or the 9-speed automatic.
The Jeep Look, Modernized
Though the Jeep Compass immediately shows its Jeep heritage through the distinctive front grille and other design cues, it is also a thoroughly modern compact SUV that imbues it with a sophisticated, urban demeanour. The black roof and chrome moulding wrapped around the vehicle's back end and sides give it a night-time feel. Want to stand out even more? The Trailhawk edition includes red tow hooks and a black anti-glare hood decal, as well as some unique interior elements.
Upscale Interior, with Plenty of Room
The new 2017 Jeep Compass places comfort as priority number-one. Interior space for passengers, including headroom and legroom, is more than ample, and the generous amount of cargo and storage space allows for keeping all items neatly put away. Other elements sure to please occupants on even the longest road adventures include premium leather accents, heated front seats and such tech goodies as an enhanced range of Uconnect systems, the largest touchscreen display in its category and much more.
