What should I be paying?

There are five different specs available on the Compass, starting with the compellingly named Night Eagle followed by Limited, Upland, S and Trailhawk.

The entry petrol is only available in Night Eagle and Limited specs, starting at £30,165 and costing £1k extra for the Limited. Every car gets heated front seats and steering wheel, two-zone auto aircon, keyless go, a 10.1in touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control and a bundle of fancy safety tech. Limited adds adaptive cruise, wireless charging, 18in alloys and a splosh of leather.

Fancy the 1.5-litre MHEV car? Ranging from £34k to £38k, it sees both of the entry car’s specs and raises you Upland and S trims. Upland spec adds satnav to the infotainment, recycled interior trim made from sea plastics and some fancier interior trim, while S gives you electrically adjustable seats up front, hands free tailgate opening and even more leather bits and pieces around the cabin. 

Meanwhile, the PHEV can only be purchased in Upland, S and Trailhawk specs, costing £41.5k for Upland or Trailhawk and £42.5k for the S car. All cars here get fancy off-road modes and in the Trailhawk car you get skid plates and off-road-specific bumpers instead of the electric leather seats. 

What about monthly costs?

If you’re looking to get the Jeep Compass on a monthly lease, the entry petrol starts at around £440 a month, the MHEV car will cost around £480 a month and if you fancy the PHEV you’re looking at around £600 a month. 

How does the Compass compare with rivals?

Objectively it’s hard to recommend the Compass over its many rivals in this small family SUV segment – 4x4 capability in the Trailhawk version aside, there’s no area where the Jeep particularly stands out. The Nissan Qashqai is a better all-rounder (and a bargain at £26k/£334 a month), while the Toyota RAV4 offers a much more accomplished hybrid powertrain and starts at £35k/£640 a month. Meanwhile the Kia Sportage offers a better value PHEV than the Compass that starts at £39k or around £550 a month.
