2015 Jeep Compass

Up to 23 MPG city / 30 MPG hwy
$18,995 - $28,195

Designed with the daily-grind and urban environment in mind, the Jeep Compass is split into basic Sport, midgrade Latitude, and top-end Limited models. The small crossover intends to bring Jeep flair to a compact package and it starts out with front-wheel drive mated to either the 158-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 or the optional 172-hp 2.4-liter I-4. Buyers may then select the Freedom Drive I or Freedom Drive II all-wheel-drive system suitable for light off-roading and tackling inclement weather. While a five-speed manual transmission is offered for either engine, the CVT is by far the more popular option. Each Compass model comes with its own specific level of equipment and creature comforts. Amenities like power windows, air conditioning, a 60/40 flat-folding backseat, power/heated side mirrors, front and full side-curtain airbags, and illuminated cup holders are standard, whereas heated seating, navigation, and fancier sound systems require migration to higher trims. There was a heavy focus on safety as the Compass claims over 30 safety and security features. Optional packages include an All-Weather Capability Group, Security and Cargo Convenience Group, Sun and Sound Group, and Premium Sound Group. There's also the Trailer-Tow Prep Group, if you ever want to utilize the Compass' 2000-pound towing capacity. See more... See Less

Pros Cons
Interior very comfortable, rear seat is spacious Exterior so curvy it looks like it is dented
Fuel economy is good for an suv type vehicle Interior fit is poor. gaps around panels
Ride is firm & steering precise A 6 speed automatic would be much better than the cvt
The radio and controls on the steering wheel The engine is loud and a bit whiny
Color: i never lose the car Seems to have a small gas tank
Seat belt comfort and adjustability: real nice. Visibility out back when changing lanes - bad blind spot
Cargo area and full seat folding to allow more space The tailgate window should lift up and have an external lock
4wd-great in the snow and off road Sluggish in stop and go traffic
Style is comparable to higher end models at less cost Ability to see out of the rear can be difficult.
Responsiveness of steering system - car handles well Not a large trunk & high for pets to jump in and out
