The Compass is Jeep’s entry-level compact SUV. While more expensive than its direct competitors, it offers segment-leading off-road capabilities, which is something many drivers look for. The large infotainment display adds a modern touch to the cabin, while the naturally aspirated 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine under the hood is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission on front-wheel drive models or a nine-speed unit on all-wheel drive models. A next-generation Compass is likely coming for 2022.
