Jeep Compass Overview

The 2014 Compass received a freshening that replaces the CVT with a six-speed automatic for most models. But it is outdated and uncompetitive. Its low-speed ride is composed, and handling is secure but not agile. The sluggish 2.4-liter four-cylinder returned 22 mpg overall. The upright front seats are narrow and are not particularly comfortable, and the cabin is cramped. Controls are straightforward, and the interior, though basic, is constructed of somewhat better materials. The high beltline makes the cabin feel claustrophobic, and the styling restricts visibility to the rear. Reliability has been above average, but it scores too low to be recommended.
