The new vehicle enters the compact SUV segment, an extremely important and growing segment worldwide, that is expected to grow by almost 20 percent to 7.5 million in 2020. In Europe, the all-new Compass represents a key addition to the Jeep portfolio as it will allow the brand to tackle the largest SUV segment in Europe.


"Our all-new Jeep Compass competes in the massive compact SUV segment, one that is already exceeding 6.3 million vehicle sales a year worldwide. In Europe alone, this segment is expected to achieve more than 2 million units by 2020," said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand - FCA Global. "With an unmatched list of attributes that includes benchmark off-road capability, world-class driving dynamics, distinctive Jeep design and advanced technology and safety features; the Jeep Compass raises the bar in this segment and is another great example of our continued commitment to grow the Jeep brand right across the world."


To address different customer needs across the EMEA region, Compass will offer two petrol and two diesel engines for a total of eight different powertrain combinations and four different configurations: Sport, Longitude, Limited - the top-of-the-range trim in terms of refinement, standard technological contents and equipment - and Trailhawk, offering best-in-class Trail Rated 4x4 capability through specific standard features designed for customers demanding the most in terms of off-road capability.


"With the Compass, Jeep completes its offering in Europe, covering every single SUV segment and cementing the very positive brand momentum in Europe." said Dante Zilli, Head of Jeep Brand - Europe, Middle East and Africa, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. "Compass will propel the brand to the next level, providing a compelling proposition to our European customers, by combining the legendary Jeep off-road capability with a distinctive design and a variety of user-friendly technologies that ensure a safe, comfortable and connected everyday driving experience."


The all-new Jeep Compass will be available in Jeep showrooms beginning this summer, at a starting price of 25,000 Euros in most markets (depending on market configurations).


The arrival of all-new Compass in Europe will be celebrated with an Opening Edition, which will offer a perfect blend of character, design, technology and capability, providing a complete package that will include several standard features and a flexible financial solution available to early buyers. Pre-orders for the Opening Edition open tomorrow (March 8).
