The new Jeep Compass could prove attractive to car leasing customers who want the reliability of a 4×4 with the compact nature of a hatchback.
Going on sale this Friday (April 15th 2011), the model is heralded by the manufacturer as an “exciting” step forward for the Jeep brand.
It is the first vehicle in the new generation to offer two-wheel drive, but its looks are inspired by the Grand Cherokee. This means that urban drivers can downsize from large 4x4s, while hatchback owners will be able to upgrade to the Compass without feeling they are driving something too big for their needs.
The Compass also comes with a raft of safety features, high-tech specifications and a long warranty, meaning it could be on the wishlist of many car leasing customers this spring.
Jeep commented: “The competitively priced Compass makes owning a Jeep not only attractive but also accessible.”
In December 2010, the Jeep Wrangler won the 4×4 of the year prize in 4×4 Magazine’s extreme category, beating off stiff competition from the Land Rover Defender and Lada Niva.
