Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

SOME would ar­gue that the re­turn of the Jeep Com­pass plugs a gap be­tween the smaller Rene­gade and larger Chero­kee that sim­ply isn’t there – and as it uses the Rene­gade’s plat­form, that puts a big­ger ques­tion mark over the car.

But like the pre­vi­ous model, the Com­pass Mk2 is more road-bi­ased than those other two Jeeps, with most ver­sions fron­twheel drive, al­though the hard­core Trail­hawk ver­sion is present.
