The Jeep Compass Trailhawk ensures that no matter where you go you will get there in comfort. Whether driving through the city or off-road, the stylish and rugged all-new Jeep Compass definitely has it all. I took a test drive in this stunning vehicle at Jeep New Vaal South.

Exterior, exterior & tech

The Jeep’s distinctive look glares through the black gloss and chrome seven-slot grille, which allows for great off-road toughness and a tighter, firmer feel for better management and response on the road.

The dual-pane sunroof, which has an open-air brashness, seems to combine the scenic beauty from the outside to the comfort of the ergonomically designed seats.

This vehicle offers advanced technology and connectivity, and shaped materials. Its leather-wrapped steering wheel with controls is linked to both the Uconnect display and the 7-inch colour information display, assisting you to perform every touch and voice command easily and with accuracy, which makes driving easy, never taking your eyes off the road ahead.

Apple CarPlay enables iPhone users to access Apple Maps, messages, phone and Apple music through Siri voice control. Android Auto enables easy and safe access to handsfree voice control, Google Maps and Google Play music via Uconnect touchscreen or steering-wheel controls.

Power & performance

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk offers a range of engine and drivetrain combinations, featuring the foremost nine-speed automatic transmission, all equipped with stop-start technology. This vehicle is also armed with a 2.4 litre Tigershark petrol engine, providing 129kW of power and 229Nm of torque.

Safety features

With a range of available active and passive features, including Forward Collision Warning Plus and Lane Departure Warning Plus, keeps danger at a distance and in any direction – Jeep is there to help make your journey the safest.
