The Altitude name stems from a competition that was run following the launch of the Jeep Grand Cherokee concept vehicle at the Houston Motor Show early in 2012. With more than 100 000 entries, Altitude emerged as the winning vehicle name.
A distinctive black gloss finish surrounds Compass’ trademark seven-slot grille and headlamps. The treatment continues with black roof rails and a black step pad. Exterior appeal is further enhanced by the addition of exclusive 18-inch black gloss aluminium wheels.
The Altitude features power heated exterior mirrors and heated seats, continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. Also included are numerous safety and security features, such as electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, Hill-start Assist (with manual transmission), and side-curtain air bags that cover all rows.
Available immediately to order in bright silver, black, tungsten metallic and bright white, the Compass Altitude will retail for R295 490 for the five-speed manual transmission and R302 490 for the CVT.
