Outdated and uncompetitive, the Compass's only attractive attribute is its low price. While its ride is fairly composed, handling is unimpressive, although it is ultimately secure at its relatively low limits. The sluggish 2.4-liter four-cylinder returned a paltry 22 mpg overall. The upright front seats are narrow and are not particularly comfortable, and the cabin is cramped. Controls are straightforward, but the very basic interior is austere. The high rear window makes the cabin feel claustrophobic, and the styling restricts visibility to the rear. A Poor owner-satisfaction score is another indication of how uncompetitive it is. There are far better small SUVs available. A redesign is coming soon.
