With the look of a small Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Compass can either be a quiet urban vehicle or a very competent off-roader. While the engine is the same in all versions of the Compass (180-horsepower, 2.4L four cylinder), there are three different gearboxes, depending on the version: six-speed manual, six-speed automatic or nine-speed automatic to go with one of either front-wheel, Active Drive or Active Drive Low (Trailhawk) drivetrains.
