The Jeep® Compass is key to the American adventure brand’s success across the globe. The compact C-segment SUV is built at four different assembly plants worldwide, but one of those plants is celebrating a huge milestone of 400,000 units being produced there.
The Polo Automotivo de Goiana, in Pernambuco, Brazil has been producing the Compass since October 2016. Since then, the vehicle has not stopped evolving. In 2021, the Brazilian-built Compass received a mid-cycle action (MCA) that brought even more design, technology, sophistication, and performance to the mighty C-SUV’s arsenal.
It now sits as the reference to what other automakers look at when entering their vehicles into the segment.
As the segment standout, Compass has always been an innovative and strong model, with lots of personality. Its Jeep DNA has helped cement it as the sales leader among the C-segment SUVs. In 2022, up to October, 51,070 units of the Compass were sold, which looks to put it once again, at the top of its category for sales at the end of the year. A position, mind you, that it has reached in the last five years.
For the 2023 model year, the Compass expanded its list of standard features and gained an extra dose of protection with the new “Jeep Healthy Cabin” package, a technology that removes impurity particles from the air and eliminates impurities by up to 83%.
The Brazilian-built version of the Compass is sold in 16 countries across Latin America. Those countries include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
What is funny about that, is that the American and Canadian version of the Compass is produced at the Toluca Assembly Plant in Mexico (which doesn’t produce its own country’s models).
