Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Jeep Compass receives several minor updates this year. The majority of the changes include newly available features for the cheapest Compass—the base Sport model. It can now be ordered with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and more with the Safety and Security package. Likewise, the Advanced Safety package unlocks even more desirable content such as adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning, a leather steering wheel, and more.

Pros
Truly capable off-road, copious technology options, handsome Jeep styling.

Cons
Clumsy automatic transmission, easily becomes overpriced, just get a Jeep Cherokee.

The 2020 Jeep Compass comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed manual.Minor revisions to feature availability.

PROS
Roomy seating for such a small vehicle
Tech interface is attractive and easy to use
Trailhawk version is highly capable off-road

CONS
Four-cylinder engine's weak power delivery
Limited cargo space
Nine-speed transmission's sluggish response

Pros
Handsome exterior
Generous, standard 7.0-inch touchscreen
Rugged Trailhawk option
Good customization options
Respectable fuel economy, for now

Cons
Indecisive 9-speed automatic
Active safety features a spend-up option
Mixed crash-test scores
Three will fit in the back in a pinch, literally

Ford has expanded the availability of the hybrid powertrain to the SE and SEL trims for 2021; it's now standard on the top-spec Titanium model. Elsewhere, adaptive cruise control and a traffic-sign recognition feature join the optional Co-Pilot360 Plus package; a hands-free power liftgate and memory settings for the driver's seat and exterior mirrors are now part of the Technology package; and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a keyless-entry keypad, and LED exterior lighting are now on the list of features in the Convenience package. A new 19-inch wheel design is optional on the Titanium model, and a Class II Trailer Tow package is now available on Escapes with the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

Pros
Handsomely styled exterior, multiple powertrain options, safety tech comes standard.

Cons
Cheap interior on base models, rough-edged base three-cylinder engine, high starting price.
