On the space has not changed, the facelifted version of the platform is still the same. The class usually means plenty of legroom in the rear seats and even ordinary space above their heads. A giant room, the Compass, but he also tweaks not among the poor. Much effort has been spent on noise insulation, which is reflected also in visible insulation measures for example in the spare wheel. Nevertheless, the four-cylinder diesel, known from several Mercedes car, a dominant theme in the road noise. He logs on to pithy word, but never overly loud or boomy. The advent of a 163-horsepower engine deserves the attribute “sporty” even just above idling speed, the four-cylinder sets over backward. The other hand, permits a delay shifting and economical driving in high gears. Available exclusively the (precise switchable) Six-speed manual gearbox, an automatic system does not come into range. The chassis and steering tuning succeeded. The Compass can also drive demand for attention along winding country roads, in very bad ground, he is somewhat stuckerig.
2011 Jeep Compass 2.2 CRD 6The promised better processing is palpable. While there are still plenty of hard plastic in the dashboard area, but that does not nearly as dull and cheap as its predecessor. On the interior feel of the European competition but the Compass is also in the new version does not quite match. Conclusion: The new Jeep Compass is a an element of risk, rather than as a replacement for Patriot Cherokee and it can only conditionally. For this he is unlike the previous one SUV that you can buy, not despite, but because of its design. The noticeably improved processing, which make very handsome features and the powerful and torquey diesel engine on him to create affordable alternative in the compact SUV – especially since the price is right.
