This new LE version is offered to European Jeep enthusiasts. It sports black details and new 18" wheels. European customers can choose between two engine/transmission configurations:

2. 2.2L TurboDiesel, 136HP and a 6 gear manual transmission, FWD only.
RSP in Europe is 30K Euros.

To be honest, the Compass has evolved into a good looking car. Maybe that diesel or something similar will eventually make it to the States?

As good looking as it is, Patriot is still outselling it here in the US - and I think likely because Compass starts at just under $20K, where Patriot starts just under $16K.

Wow, you're right. Same mileage of 23/30 for each! Now I hope the Compass successor (next gen) looks much better than the current one.

Wow. I know the direct conversion of Euro to USD means little in actual sell price - but 30000 euros still seems very expensive for what you are getting.

I would agree. That is really quite expensive.

Diesels are expensive. Does that price also include VAT, which is now around 22% (an average across the EU)?

[Side note: VAT is the way health insurance gets paid. It has been going up and payroll taxes have been going down as EU countries compete to get more jobs, according to my quick glance of the literature.]

According to The Truth About Cars, VAT is included in the car's price.
