Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The redesigned 2017 Jeep Compass is much improved over its predecessor. It's a good choice if you want a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can still handle a dirt road.Jeep produced its previous-generation model for the first part of the model year and then switched over to the fully redesigned Compass. The first one suffers from poor performance, a low-quality interior and a rough ride, among other faults. We don't recommend buying the "old" Compass.
The new Jeep Compass, however, is a much more competitive small crossover. Jeep made the new Compass more comfortable and enjoyable to drive on the street, where it knows that owners will spend most of their time.

Pros
Solid interior space for such a small vehicle
Highly capable off-road for a small crossover
Rugged Jeep styling is unique in the segment

Cons
Weak power delivery; you're always dipping into the throttle
Hard to find a truly comfortable seat position
Previous model's poor performance, ride comfort and refinement

Forget what you knew about the old Jeep Compass; this latest model is thoroughly modern, even if it doesn't exactly move the bar far forward in its segment.In its first generation, it went down in history as one of the most unloved crossovers on the road from day one. But that's the past and, aside from its badge, the Jeep Compass is all-new for 2017.

Likes
Old Compass? Put out to pasture
No more CVT
Trailhawk toughness
Mini Grand Cherokee looks inside and out
Comfortable ride quality and good handling

Dislikes
Priced like a larger crossover
Narrow inside
High cargo area liftover
Mediocre visibility
Could use more power

The Renegade is more Wrangler-focused, with lots of right angles and round headlights, whereas the Compass is clearly taking styling cues from the Grand Cherokee, so it’s more sleek and progressive.Indeed, you could argue the new Compass’s design looks more traditionally “Cherokee” than the current small Cherokee does. Dimensionally, the Compass has been engineered to fill a relatively narrow space in between the Renegade and Cherokee.The new Compass is a global vehicle.

Pros
Crisply styled, off-road capable, nimble handling

Cons
Lethargic transmission response, touchy brakes
