Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Jeep Compass's #15 ranking is based on its score within the Compact SUVs category. Currently the Jeep Compass has a score of 7.2 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 34 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent off-roader
Adult-friendly seats
User-friendly infotainment features

Cons
Weak engine and so-so handling
Limited standard safety tech and low safety score
Below-average cargo room

By:

The Compass enters 2021 with minor changes. There's a new 80th Anniversary Edition that's based on the Latitude trim level and features Granite Crystal 19-inch wheels, leather seats with contrast stitching, a power-adjustable driver's seat, remote start, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 115-volt power outlet, and more. Other flourishes include trim-specific badging, an oak medallion key fob, and piano-black and gunmetal interior accents. The Limited and Trailhawk trims both add more standard active safety features, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist..

Pros
Can actually handle some off-road obstacles,
no shortage of popular technology,
one of the prettier Jeep designs.

Cons
Inferior interior materials,
powertrain has apathetic responses,
the Cherokee offers more capability.

The Jeep Compass has impressive off-road credentials, but its poor road manners and noisy engines mean it's ultimately off the pace.

Pros
Good off-road ability
Reasonably spacious interior

Cons
Terrible engine refinement
Small boot for its class

By:

Fully redesigned for 2022.

Pros
Comfortable cabin and ample cargo space
Balances sporty handling with a relaxed ride
Generous array of features and driver aids for the money
Quick acceleration from the Type S model

Cons
Standard engine can be noisy and lacks the power of turbocharged rivals
Infotainment touchpad requires a steep learning curve

Acura redesigned the MDX for 2022, skipping the 2021 model year. The new SUV shares its styling and technology with the recently revamped RDX and TLX models.

Pros
Sharp styling,
surprisingly nimble chassis,
high-tech cabin.

Cons
Tight third row passenger space,
mediocre fuel economy ratings,
fussy infotainment touchpad.
