Jeep Compass Compact Crossover (MY 2021)

MSRP 28750 EURNEX score 41%

Product Overview

The second-generation Jeep Compass, launched in 2017, is refreshed for the 2021 model year with smaller, more efficient and more powerful engines. For the European market, to which it is primarily targeted, the Jeep Compass is now assembled in Italy for reduced lead time.
A compact crossover, the Jeep Compass is front-wheel drive with either a 6-speed manual or, for the first time, a dry clutch dual clutch transmission. The hybrid version, which combines a 1.3L turbocharged petrol engine with advanced electric motors, is uniquely four-wheel drive.
Inside, the new Uconnect Services are fitted as standard on both the 7- and 8.4-inch infotainment systems and on all trims.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
In plug-in hybrid 4xe form the updated Jeep Compass is more competitive than ever, with improved infotainment and impressive efficiency potential. But it lacks a little in execution; the powertrain isn’t the most refined and the ride is still a little lumpy, even if the tech and quality boosts are welcome. The Compass still offers relatively strong value however, with this top-spec S model receiving plenty of kit.

Pros
  • Improved infotainment
  • Good value
Cons
  • Lack of refinement
  • Not the most refined

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Compass 4xe borrows the plug-in hybrid system from the Renegade 4xe. That means 237bhp and a 0-62 mph time of 7.3 seconds. Petrol engine powers the front, battery powers the rear. Compared with the old Jeep Compass, it's a huge improvement.

Pros
  • Decent off-road performance
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals
  • Lacklustre petrol engine

cnet[3]

Sentiment Score 43%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The Jeep Compass slots between the subcompact Renegade and larger-but-still-compact Cherokee. It's available in seven trims, from the base Sport to the top-level High Altitude. Three different transmissions are offered -- including a six-speed manual. Passenger space is about average for the compact class.

Pros
  • Rugged, rugged design
  • Excellent off-road capability
  • Solid fuel economy
Cons
  • No four-wheel drive
  • Lackluster automatic transmission
