Stellantis Australia has made a number of specification tweaks to the Jeep Compass small SUV for 2023, with corresponding price increases.
A company spokesperson has confirmed MY23 versions of the Jeep Compass are at dealerships now.
Pricing for the 2023 Jeep Compass range is up by between $1000 and $5100, depending on the variant. The range now starts at $41,400 before on-roads for the Night Eagle, and extends to $59,100 before on-roads for the Trailhawk.
The entire Jeep Compass range now comes with an accent colour shark fin antenna instead of the removable short mass antenna. They also gain rear seat reminders.
The Limited has gloss black exterior side mirrors instead of chrome side mirrors, as well as a hidden single exhaust tip, and a black headliner.
The S-Limited now receives the Premium Package as standard which adds a surround-view camera, heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, and a panoramic sunroof. It also comes with Highway Assist which is a combination of adaptive cruise control and lane-centring.
The flagship Trailhawk also comes with the Premium Package as standard now, which adds a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, nine-speaker Alpine sound system, heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats.
The current, second-generation Jeep Compass has been in production since 2016. It received a mid-life facelift in 2021 which brought a redesigned interior, fresher exterior styling, and an expanded suite of safety technology.
