Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The middle compact crossover from Jeep, the Compass is slotted between the bargain-priced Patriot and more refined Cherokee. As in previous years, the Compass appeals to buyers using its combination of value and available off-road ability.

What's New for 2015

All-wheel drive is now available on every trim level.

Choosing Your Jeep Compass

The Compass starts out with a 2-liter four cylinder engine with 158 horsepower and your choice of five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Certain models carry a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). A 172-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder is available on most front-drive version and is mandatory with all-wheel drive.

There are two such systems that can go into any Compass model. Freedom Drive I is an all-wheel drive setup designed for on-road use -- it's similar to what you would find on other passenger-oriented crossovers. Freedom Drive II provides genuine off-road prowess thanks to a host of extra equipment: all-terrain tires, skid plates, hill-start and -descent assist, and a specially tuned CVT with crawl control.

The five trim levels differ mainly in comfort and convenience features:

Jeep Compass


The price leader of the group comes standard with foglamps, roof rails, air conditioning, cruise control and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player. Note that power window and locks require the Power Value Group, which also adds heated mirrors, keyless entry and body-color exterior trim. The Sport rolls on 16-inch alloy wheels, or 17s if you opt for the 2.4-liter engine.

Jeep Compass


Enhances the Sport with 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, a standard automatic transmission, black exterior trim, heated front seats in sport mesh upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. You still need to order the Power Value Group to get power windows and locks. Note that front-drive Altitude models come only with the 2-liter engine and the CVT, while all-wheel drive models get the six-speed automatic.

Jeep Compass


Gets the six-speed automatic and Power Value Group as standard, then adds heated seats, a bright mesh grille, extra chrome trim inside and out, a folding passenger seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The available Security and Cargo Convenience package adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a driver information display and a vehicle alarm system. You can also get a Sun and Sound Package with a sunroof and a nine-speaker Boston Acoustics audio system with flip-down tailgate speakers and satellite radio. A navigation system with integrated audio storage is a standalone option.

Jeep Compass


Your top choice in a new Compass carries the 2.4-liter engine as standard along with a bundle of handy upgrades: automatic climate control, a rearview camera, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a touchscreen interface, a six-CD changer and satellite radio. The Limited can get an expanded version of the Security and Cargo Convenience package with remote start, a USB port and Bluetooth phone and audio. The Sun and Sound package and navigation system continue as options.

CarsDirect Tip

The Compass is very competitively priced across all trim levels, so you can get some nice features on the high end that might otherwise be out of reach. We like that the Freedom Drive packages are optional on all models, which means you can choose where to concentrate your options budget: on comfort and convenience or off-road performance.
