Jeep is well-known of course for its series of full-sized SUVs like the Grand Cherokee, as well as off-road models like the Wrangler.

It has a fairly long production history going back to 2007 but now is only in its second generation.

While it’s certainly more compact, it retains a lot of the signature Jeep-look features, like the 7-box front grille, the distinctive mix of curves and angles in the body shape. It’s unmistakably Jeep.

The Compass absolutely nailed its safety tests, too, overturning long-held perceptions about certain American SUVs and safety. Euro NCAP gave the Compass 5 stars, and the IIHS rated it “Good” in all five of their criteria.

It only attained 4 stars in the 2021 model year from NHTSA, but by all measures, it’s still a high-quality and safe compact SUV.

The second-generation model scores were a big improvement on the first, which only managed a 2-star rating in its Euro NCAP tests.

Compact it may be, but it can still tow up to 2,000lbs in the latest model year, and the engines of up to 2.4L gasoline or 2.0L diesel deliver up to 180hp.

You get all of that while still achieving up to 31mpg in fuel efficiency too, a far cry from the late 1990s and early 2000s Jeep models that could barely get you 14mpg.

Jeep calls this model the small crossover with full-size SUV capabilities.

They do offer the Compass in the Trailhawk trim, which adds a lot more potential for off-roading ability, making the Compass an attractive choice for just about any kind of SUV enthusiast.
