Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 31 - 46 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Service intervals on the Compass are a generous 15,000 miles for diesel versions, much improved compared to previous generations of Jeep – although some of the competitors do offer intervals as high as 20,000 miles. Jeep Compass running costs should be low because fuel economy is reasonable with the 2.2-litre CRD two-wheel drive being capable of an average 46mpg, while the 2.4-litre petrol will average 33mpg.

The 2.0-litre petrol two-wheel-drive version emits 175g/km of CO2, while the range-topping 2.2-litre CRD four-wheel drive improves on this marginally, emitting 172g/km of CO2. For best Jeep Compass emissions go for the cleanest version, the 2.2-litre diesel two-wheel drive model that spits out CO2 at 161g/km.

Expect Jeep Compass reliability, especially considering that it’s powered by a Mercedes-Benz-sourced diesel engine. All models are covered by Jeep’s three-year/60,000-mile warranty. There have also been no major issues with the Patriot model, which shares the same platform as the Compass.
