Chrysler has now announced the introduction of the updated 2014 Compass Compact SUV in the the UK Showrooms.

Jeep Compass also offers standard front-seat-mounted side airbags and available ParkView rear backup camera (standard on Limited models) in addition to the rich array of safety features assisting drivers both in the city and on off-road trails.
An exciting new Compass North version joins the Sport and Limited trim levels already available in the Compass lineup. Thanks to a more refined exterior and premium interior features, the Limited model re-confirms its top-of the range position in the Compass lineup. Benchmark off-road capability in its category is provided by the full-time, active Freedom Drive I four-wheel drive system with lock mode, designed situations to give drivers year-round assurance through the ability to handle poor weather situations and low-traction.

The 2014 Jeep Compass has been available in many European markets in the following exterior colours: Black, Bright White, Billet Silver, True Blue, Maximum Steel and Granite Chrystal (Limited only).
The exterior of the 2014 Jeep Compass has been refined with specific updates that move the design forward. On the Limited version the front grille has been enhanced with a plated upper grille trim and mold-in-colour Billet Silver grille texture. The halogen headlamps now have a black inner bezel. The Limited and North models sport chrome fog lamp bezels. The rear has also received changes and features new tail lamps with a new “smoked” inner bezel and a plated chrome insert on the tailgate trim applique. New 18-inch polished face painted pocket aluminium wheels on Limited models (later this year) and a new “Jeep” badge on the tailgate complete the refreshed exterior design of Jeep Compass.
The interior has also been tastefully upgraded with accents and trim that customers will appreciate. Improved features include a new interior trim option available on the Limited model and Dark Slate Grey perforated leather seating. The armrests and centre console lid are now wrapped in soft-touch materials. The instrument cluster overlay graphics have been updated on all trim levels.
