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.

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

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

CONS

By:

The latest Ascent receives a handful of new standard features for 2021. These include LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel as well as automatic high-beams. The Touring model also adds another leather upholstery option: Slate Black with silver stitching. And as if the Ascent's incessant beeping notifications weren't annoying enough, all models now have a seat-belt chime that's meant to remind second- and third-row passengers to buckle up.

Pros
Flexible seating configurations,
cushy ride quality,
every model comes with driver assists.

Cons
Apathetic passing power,
noisy engine during hard acceleration,
third row smaller than some rivals.
