Jeep has a heritage going all the way back to 1941, but smaller models to compete in the compact SUV sector have only arrived in fairly recent years. The American brand tried to enter this market in 2007 with its Compass model, but it looked awkward and wasn't offered in the more efficient 2WD guise that many buyers wanted. Hence the introduction of a much improved Compass model that arrived in 2011 and sold until 2014 - the car we're going to look at here. It's the first compact Jeep that really makes any sense on the used market.
This revised Compass may not be the most avant garde-looking or the most sophisticated affordable used small SUV you can buy from the 2011 to 2014 period, but unlike the original 2007 model, it offers a credibly tough and tempting way to buy into this macho marque.
It may not meet the purist perception of a 'real Jeep', but it's the peoples' idea of one. A car you purchase picturing yourself at a beach barbeque, tailgate open, its speakers hinged downwards blasting the Blues towards the crashing waves. If it cost RAV4 or Freelander money, you still might think twice - but it doesn't, competing instead with Far Eastern budget brand rivals that still lack credibility in this sector. Credibility of course, is something the Jeep name has never lacked. If that attracts you and you can find a well looked-after post-2011 Compass model, then go right ahead.
