If you want to get into a new Jeep Compass for the least amount of money, the Sport is the grade for you, with the manual listing for $28,850 and the automatic $1900 more at $30,750.

Standard features on the Sport grade include a 5.0-inch touchscreen, reversing camera, six-speaker stereo with digital radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel and 17-inch alloy wheels.

The Sport is only available with a 2.4-litre 129kW/229Nm four-cylinder petrol engine and a choice of six-speed manual gearbox or 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 it 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.
