2022 Jeep Compass

Pros: Comfortable ride; roomy cabin within the compact exterior dimensions; off-road ability in Trailhawk trim

Cons: Powertrain isn’t quite as refined as some class competitors; thick rear roof pillars impede visibility; so-so fuel economy

CG Says:  The 2022 Jeep Compass receives a thorough round of revisions, including an exterior styling facelift, a redesigned interior, a new infotainment system, and a higher level of standard equipment. The Compass was redesigned for 2017; it’s a compact crossover SUV that slots between Jeep’s subcompact Renegade and compact Cherokee in size and price. Six trim levels are offered: Sport, Latitude, Latitude Lux, High Altitude, Limited, and off-road-oriented Trailhawk. The sole engine is a 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four cylinder. Front-wheel-drive Compasses have a 6-speed automatic transmission, while 4WD models have a 9-speed automatic. A 2-speed transfer case with a low-ratio for off-road use is standard on Trailhawk. Available features include forward-collision warning and autonomous braking, hill-descent control, and panoramic sunroof. In Trailhawk trim, Compass boasts off-road capabilities that can top most any class competitor except the Ford Bronco and other Jeeps. The Compass’s drivetrain doesn’t quite measure up to leading class rivals in terms of power, fuel economy, and transmission refinement. However, the decent interior space for the size, pleasing on-road driving personality, and up-to-date available features—not to mention the much-improved interior ambiance for 2022—make the Compass a worthwhile contender.
