Previously, if you wanted the most efficient Compass then you needed to choose the 118hp 1.6 MultiJet diesel 2WD manual, which returned around 43mpg with CO2 emissions of 157g/km. The most powerful 166bhp diesel is paired with a nine-speed auto and four-wheel-drive (available solely in TrailHawk spec), so the figures are inevitably poorer, with claimed economy of 38.7mpg and emissions of 191g/km.

Choosing the (now discontinued) 138bhp 1.4 MultiAir petrol model offered average fuel economy of 36.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 172g/km, while the 168bhp version with a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4WD only achieved 30.7mpg on the combined cycle, with 208g/km of CO2.

Although it's the most expensive model to buy, the 4xe plug-in hybrid delivers appealing efficiency with up to 30 miles all-electric driver and CO2 emissions from 44g/km. The 128bhp pure petrol version isn't able to compete on fuel economy, but is up to £10,000 cheaper to buy: it averages around 40mpg, with CO2 emissions of 153-164g/km depending on which trim level you choose.

Insurance groups

The Compass has a reasonable range of insurance classifications, ranging from group 19-31, with the plug-in hybrid models proving the most expensive to arrange cover for. 

Depreciation

Residual values for the Jeep Compass are surprisingly strong, with an average of 47 per cent of its original value retained after three-years/36,000-miles of ownership - pretty respectable when compared to its rivals. Whether values will fall, only time will tell, but strong brand loyalty from Jeep buyers is sure to have a positive effect on these residual scores.
