The all-new Jeep Compass – soon to be on sale at T H WHITE’s Fiat Group Brand Centre in Swindon – has attained the maximum five-star EuroNCAP safety rating.
The Compass scored positive ratings in all categories – including adult protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and driving assistance safety systems. The result is even more significant considering that it meets the demanding 2017 EuroNCAP standards. The new compact SUV combines the brand’s legendary off-road capability with user-friendly technology and a full array of driving assistance systems – all wrapped up in a distinctive modern design.
Making a major contribution to the Jeep Compass’s maximum five-star rating is the effectiveness of its ‘safety cage’ – 65 per cent of which is made from high-strength steel ensuring exceptional torsional strength and enhanced occupant protection. More than 70 active and passive safety systems also set the new standard in the Jeep range.
Safety systems fitted as standard on the new Compass range include active driving assistance systems such as Forward Collision Warning-Plus and Lane Sense Departure Warning-Plus, both of which combine radar and video camera technology to recognise potential collisions and prevent impact by alerting the driver with audible, visual and tactile warnings.
