Auto Express - - New Cars -

IT’S clear from the off that the new Jeep Com­pass is a far more com­pet­i­tive car than the last model, and it mixes a dis­tinc­tive de­sign with a solid in­te­rior, loads of kit and the brand’s trade­mark off-road abil­ity. The 1.6-litre diesel is a de­cent all-rounder, too. But the cross­over mar­ket is at sat­u­ra­tion point, and un­for­tu­nately the car’s han­dling lacks pol­ish when com­pared with ri­vals. It’s not all that prac­ti­cal, ei­ther.
