The Longitude sits above the entry-grade Sport in the Jeep Compass line-up at $33,750.

Standard features on the Longitude grade include a 5.0-inch touchscreen, reversing camera, six-speaker stereo with digital radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto headlights and wipers, roof rails, tinted rear glass, passenger seat storage and 17-inch alloy wheels.

The Longitude is available only with a 2.4-litre 129kW/229Nm four-cylinder petrol engine and six-speed automatic transmission. If you’re after an all-wheel drive you’ll have to step up to the Limited or Trailhawk as all Sports are front-wheel drive only.

The Jeep Compass scored the maximum five-star ANCAP score when it was tested in 2017, and while the Longitude does have seven airbags, traction and stability control and ABS it does not come standard with advanced safety equipment such as AEB – you’ll have to option that feature.
