Despite its facelift that mimicks the look of the (much-better) Grand Cherokee, the Compass is mediocre. The engine is noisy, lacks punch and the continuously variable transmission accentuates its unpleasant growl. Handling is unimpressive, the seats are second-rate and the driving position is flawed. The cabin feels claustrophobic, visibility is problematic and access is hampered by a tall doorsill.
