JEEP COMPASS By Brian Foley

Jeeps are jeeps, full stop. The iconic Jeep name associated with go anywhere ability since WW2 should not be confused with any other brand of 4x4 vehicles. However when it comes to the Jeep Compass there is a contradiction in that models with the 4x2 designation are front-wheel-drive only. For all weather safety and off road work the only way to go is the 4-wheel-drive option. With saloon car styling and comfort, the Compass is a very pleasant road car with the high command driver and passenger seating of an SUV. The 2.2 litre diesel engine packs a powerful punch, which shows to optimum advantage in 4x4 models for towing and off road driving in tough terrain.
