Fiat Chrysler has pulled the wraps off of the European-specification Jeep Compass crossover at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The Euro-spec Compass is nearly identical to the version of the compact crossover that will be sold in North America, but differs in its powertrain options. The petrol-powered range is comprised of two 1.4-liter engines. The lesser 140 horsepower engine is available in conjunction with 2WD and a six-speed manual transmission only, while the more powerful 170 horsepower 1.4-liter is only offered with 4WD and a nine-speed automatic.
The diesel range is made up of a 120 horsepower 1.6-liter diesel and two 2.0-liter diesels available in 140 and 170 horsepower guise. The 1.6-liter and the 140 horsepower 2.0-liter are available with two-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission, while the 170 horsepower 2.0-liter is available with 4WD and a nine-speed automatic.
Compasses offered outside of Europe and North America, such as those headed to Russia, Africa and the Middle East will receive FCA’s 2.4-liter Tigershark petrol engine in 150 horsepower and 184 horsepower versions, both of which will be paired with the nine-speed automatic and 4WD.
In all EMEA markets, the Compass will be avaialble in Sport, Longitude and range-topping Limited trim (sorry, EMEA buyers, no rugged Trailhawk for you). Three infotainment systems will be offered, a 5.0-inch unit, a 7.0-inch unit and FCA’s new 8.4-inch unit – which is Apply CarPlay and AndroidAuto compatible. A host of active safety features will also be available including Forward Collision Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection and LaneSense lane departure warning.
The Euro-spec Jeep Compass will go on sale this summer with prices starting from €25,000. Pricing for Asia, Russia and the Middle East has yet to be announced.
