A 2021 facelift did away with the diesels but introduced the 4xe plug-in hybrid, which offered up to 30 miles of all-electric range from an 11.4kWh battery. All cars received a refreshed interior that featured a 10.25-inch digital driver display and a more accessible center touchscreen. On the outside, there were thinner headlights and restyled bumpers.
The new entry-level version was Night Eagle, followed by Limited – both available with front-wheel drive, a six-speed manual gearbox and a 128bhp 1.3-litre turbo petrol. For four-wheel drive, you’ll need the top-spec Trailhawk or S – a pair of plug-in hybrids with a six-speed, 237 hp, 199 lb-ft and claimed fuel economy of 141.2 to 156 .9mpg.
The Compass’s driving forces include some useful mid-range muscle, especially in the 2.0 diesel and 4xe versions. There are also decent levels of grip and good stability, aided by electronic traction and stability controls, which combine well with Jeep’s four-wheel-drive system to allow safe progression.
The Compass can tow up to two tonnes (braked), making it a useful second-hand option for towing trailers or caravans.
Starting price for a new second-generation Compass in 2018 was £22,995, but early sports cars can now be had from £14,000 – a reasonable price given the generous levels of standard kit. Mid-range Longitude cars cost around £15,000 and Limiteds from £17,000. Expect to pay at least £18,000 for a post-facelift Night Eagle.
