Limited spec models start from £27,995 and feature larger 18-inch alloys, heated seats, blind spot detection and park assist.

Topping the range at £35,595 is the Trailhawk model, which is only offered with the 168bhp 2.0-litre diesel. It comes as standard with a low range gearbox, raised off-road suspension, front and rear skid plates and hill descent, however, it doesn’t arrive in the UK until next summer.

The Compass is also the first model from Jeep to feature the brand’s new Uconnect entertainment and navigation system. A raft of safety tech such as lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and a reversing camera contributed to the Compass’ five-star EURO NCAP rating

Available to order now, first customers can expect to take delivery in February.
