The new 2011 Jeep Compass has a distinct family resemblance to the Grand Cherokee. But with a whole host of new refinements and gadgets, it's an entirely different beast.

The new 2011 Jeep Compass features a new design, with cues coming directly from the Jeep’s flagship icon, the recently updated Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Coupled with a host of interior refinements, and improved ride and handling characteristics in all conditions – courtesy of upgraded steering and suspension systems – the new Jeep Compass offers a blend of premium styling, capability, efficiency and value that’s set to rival anything in the SUV market.

With a new bonnet, front bumpers, fascia and headlamps as well as a new grille that has been detailed with a small dose of chrome surrounding the traditional seven slots found on all Jeep vehicles, the new face of the Compass features a more serious, yet sophisticated, appearance.

Forward lighting performance is improved with the use of quad reflector headlamps, and the fog lamps are now high output projector lamps.

There’s plenty of gadgets to keep you happy too whether commuting to work, driving in challenging weather conditions, exploring new trails or out-of-the-way places.

Adding an element of muscle, the hood has been enhanced with a subtle power bulge. The result is a vehicle that projects an attitude that is much more serious and conveys the Compass' capability in all weather and driving conditions.

Inside has been equally well upgraded with new trim, steering wheel with integrated controls that operate the radio, cruise control and handsfree phone and ‘premium cloth bucket seats’.

There’s plenty of gadgets to keep you happy too whether commuting to work, driving in challenging weather conditions, exploring new trails or out-of-the-way places – a media centre with iPod connection, sat nav and a top notch 9 speaker Boston Acoustic stereo.

Perhaps most importantly it performs well on and off the road. Compass features either a 2.0litre 158bhp or 2.4litre 172bhp engine and a 4x4 system that will cope with ease with anything in your path.

And if you’re just interested in colours, then chose from the usual grays, blacks and white.
