Overview

What's New

The 2022 Jeep Compass includes minor exterior styling updates and major interior and safety system upgrades.

Choosing Your Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass is available in five trims: Sport, Latitude, Latitude Lux, Trailhawk, and Limited. Starting prices range from $26,590 to $32,990.

Engine Choices

The Jeep Compass is fitted with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that develops 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel-drive models are matched with a six-speed automatic while all-wheel-drive models feature a nine-speed unit. Jeep’s Select-Terrain traction control system is included with the Active Drive all-wheel-drive system and furthermore includes a Rock terrain setting to make the most of the Trailhawk trim’s lower final drive ratio. The Trailhawk is also the only trim with a 2,000-pound towing rating.

Fuel economy ratings are an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 25 combined while the all-wheel-drive system reduces the highway figure by just one mpg point.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Compass seats five, stretches to 173 inches in length, and rides on a 103.8-inch wheelbase, making it slightly longer than a Honda HR-V. Rear passengers receive 38.3 inches of legroom and cargo capacity grows from 27.2 cubic feet to 59.8 cubic feet with the 60/40 split rear seat folded. Helping the Compass maneuver in the urban setting is a tight 36.3-foot turning circle.

Safety Features

All 2022 Jeep Compass models are well equipped when it comes to active safety technology. The base trim incorporates automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and bicycle detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection, and lane-keep assist, while adaptive cruise control and rear parking sensors are standard on the Trailhawk and Limited trims and optional on the Latitude and Latitude Lux trims. Parallel and perpendicular parking assist systems and a surround-view camera system are optional on all trims except for the Sport and a Highway Assist semi-autonomous system is available in the Trailhawk and Limited trims.

The 2022 Compass has not yet been evaluated by NHTSA or IIHS.

Connectivity

All trims feature Jeep’s latest UConnect 5 infotainment system with SiriusXM, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and Bluetooth connectivity for two phones. The Sport and Latitude trims’ 8.4-inch touchscreen is enlarged to 10.1-inches on the more expensive trims. Alexa Built-In and HD radio are optional on Trailhawk and Limited trims.

Recharging options are aplenty. There are two USB ports (one Type A and one Type C) in front, one USB port (Type A) for the second row, and two 12-volt outlets; one located in front and the other in the cargo area. A wireless charging pad, a second USB port (Type C) for the second-row passengers, and a 115-volt outlet are further available on all trims except the Sport.

A six-speaker audio system is standard while trims above the Sport can be equipped with an Alpine nine-speaker system.

Rugged and flawed. The Jeep Compass has had its ups and downs over the years, but its latest refresh gives it a sharper look inside and out. Add to that a rugged Trailhawk model, and you have a nice combination. However, it may not stack up to the competition with an iffy powertrain and a few other shortcomings. See if it can hold its own against the competition below.

Nice-looking cabin but needs better seats. The cabin of the 2022 Jeep Compass looks pretty good, as it pulls in some of the more premium features found in the larger Grand Cherokee, like the two-tone dash and some upscale materials. It’s still a far cry from its big sibling, but it’s sharp for the class it’s in.

Roominess isn’t bad in the Compass, as rear passengers enjoy up to 38.3 inches of legroom. This easily beats the Subaru Crosstrek (36.5 inches), Ford Bronco Sport (36.9), and Hyundai Kona (34.6 inches). However, the seats are flat and not very comfortable. The front seats suffer the same issue.

Competent off-roader, but the powertrain is rough. In its Trailhawk garb, the Compass transforms into a surprisingly capable off-road rig. No, it won’t be rock-crawling anytime soon, but basic trail roaming will be met with ease thanks to 8.6 inches of ground clearance, a stout AWD system, and simulated crawl gears. The Bronco Sport comes close to matching in this area, but all other competitors are soft-roaders at best.

Under its hood, the 2022 Compass has a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 177 horsepower. This isn’t bad for a standard unit, but that’s all it has. The Bronco has an available 245-hp 2.0-liter, making the Compass look like a toy. Plus, the Compass’ nine-speed automatic transmission is clunky at best.

Good tech all around. The 2022 Jeep Compass does a great job focusing on technology, whether it's safety tech or fun tech. On the fun side, it comes standard with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Plus, it has USB-A and -C ports for everyone.

For comparison, this easily beats the Crosstrek and Kona, with their 6.5- and seven-inch touchscreens, respectively. The Kia Seltos and Bronco get close with eight-inch touchscreens, but neither has wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The Compass also comes decked with standard safety gear, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors. This matches or exceeds every competitor.

Final thoughts. The 2022 Jeep Compass is a delicate combination of a premium-looking compact crossover and a legit off-road machine. It struggles a bit in seating comfort, but it makes up for this with its great standard tech and rugged Trailhawk model.

Buyers looking for a more traditional SUV look will find this in the Bronco Sport. The Bronco also provides a far better choice of powertrains. Alternatively, Jeep does offer the Cherokee with many of the same features, as well as in an optional Trailhawk configuration.
