China's New Jeep Compass Revealed In Guangzhou, Costs Less Than $25,000

While #Jeep was busy dropping the curtain for the new Compass in Los Angeles, its Chinese arm did the same on the other side of the globe.

Manufactured locally by GAC FCA, the compact SUV made its Asian premiere at the 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show and, from the two official images released, it looks identical to the North American version.

On the Chinese market, Jeep offers the Compass in four grades, kicking off from less than RMB 170,000 ($24,800) for the entry-level Longitude and reaching around RMB 240,000 ($35,000) for the Trailhawk 4WD. Specific trim details have yet to be released, but depending on the selected variant, it can be had with features such as the 8.4-inch LCD screen, Uconnect Live and leather seats, among other things.

The 2017 Jeep Compass is offered with a choice of two engines in the People's Republic; a 1.4-liter MultiAir2 turbo, with 115 HP and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque and the naturally aspirated 2.4-liter TigerShark MultiAir2. Jeep hasn't announced the latter's output, but in the US version it delivers 180 HP and 175 lb-ft (237 Nm) of torque and can be had with a 6-speed manual, 6-speed auto, and 9-speed auto gearbox, so we could be looking at similar, if not identical, numbers.

Four-wheel drive is also part of the package, and so is the Selec-Terrain with its five different settings that include Auto, Snow, Mud, Sand, and Rock. Additionally, the compact Jeep can also be had with start/stop, adaptive-cruise control, advanced brake assist and lane departure warning.
