It's hard to believe that the Jeep Compass has already been around for nearly a decade. In that time, the nameplate has truly established itself as one of the premier affordable compact SUVs. While some customers may assume that an affordable vehicle will see a reduction in quality (and that may not necessarily be wrong), that isn't the case with the 2016 Jeep Compass.
The vehicle is more than capable, even despite its incredibly affordable price tag. The variety of engine options provides drivers with plenty of muscle, and the units are also incredibly fuel efficient. The interior features several high-quality materials, as well as some pretty innovative technological amenities. Most importantly of all, the Compass offers several preventative and protective safety features.
You're not getting a reduced product with the 2016 Jeep Compass. On the contrary. You'd be opting for one of the most impressive and well-versed vehicles in the class, and the affordable price tag is merely the cherry on top.

Customers won't be locked into any one particular engine or 4x4 system when its comes to the Jeep Compass. The compact SUV provides prospective buyers with multiple options, which each of the offerings providing their own specific specs and capabilities. While there may be uncertainty surrounding your final decision, one thing is clear: you're making the right choice regardless of what you opt for.
Instead of one specific engine, the Jeep Compass provides buyers with a bit of a selection. While each of the units prioritizes one attribute over another, customers can still expect reliable efficiency and muscular power from both of the offerings.
The 2.0-liter Dual VVT engine offers a sufficient amount of power at 158 horsepower and 141 pounds-feet of torque. Thanks to several fuel-saving technologies, drivers can also expect the unit to deliver a 30 mile per gallon highway efficiency. This means drivers can reasonably reach 400 highway miles from their Compass on only one tank of gas.
Meanwhile, the 2.4-liter World Engine upgrades the power, as the system pumps out 172 horsepower and 165 pounds-feet of torque. These numbers lead to an impressive 2,000-pound towing capacity (the heavy-duty forged steel tow hooks will make hauling easier than ever). Even with this power, the system is still plenty efficient, delivering 28 highway miles per gallon.
Trail Rated Capabilities
The Jeep Compass is one of the few Jeep offerings that is branded with the 'Trail Rated badge' outright, as most nameplates are recognized for one specific version of the vehicle. The Compass's off-roading prowess can easily be attributed to the Freedom Drive systems. Freedom Drive I provides 4x4 capabilities and Electronically Controlled Coupling, which provides power to the wheels and axles that need it most.
Meanwhile, the Freedom Drive II system takes it to another level, as the Off-Road LOCK mode reduces torque when possible, thus improving efficiency. Plus, the improved traction means the Compass can trek through any conditions, whether it be snow, mud, or even 19 inches of water.
The four-wheel independent suspension (with MacPherson strut front and a multilink rear) also helps improve the vehicle's performance. Thanks to the unit, handling and drivability will be optimized, so drivers can expect a premier driving experience.
You expect two things from a Jeep's interior: style and spaciousness. The 2016 Jeep Compass undoubtedly delivers in this respect, delivering a unique combination of opulence, technology, and cargo room.
Stylish, Modern Design
The affordable Jeep Compass isn't regarded as a luxury SUV, but you wouldn't know that by taking a glance inside of the vehicle. The roomy interior includes the buyer's choice of several soft-touch materials, including McKinley leather trim. The heated front seats make these surfaces even cozier, as the warmth will allow passengers to quickly escape from the cold.
This style also applies to the technology, as the modern infotainment system provides drivers with plenty of entertainment and assistance applications. The Garmin GPS Navigation unit will guide any driver to his or her destination, while the SiriusXM Satellite Radio will make that commute so much more enjoyable. If you decide to take a brief break, you can utilize the pair of flip-down liftgate speakers, allowing you to enjoy your tunes even when you aren't in the vehicle.
Plenty of Cargo Room
While the Jeep Compass is capable of towing 2,000 pounds, you probably won't need to rely on a trailer to haul all of your cargo. After all, the compact SUV offers 53.6-cubic-feet of space behind the first row, so drivers won't have any issues storing their luggage or equipment.
Plus, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats allow for plenty of flexibility. If you want to fill only three of the five passenger spots, you can hide the other two seats to fit any extra supplies. Of course, all of these passengers will be able to spread out, as the rear space offers 36.4-inches of leg room and 39.3-inches of head room.
While the 2016 Jeep Compass may be incredibly affordable, you presumably want to maintain your ride's pristine quality. Plus, you'll want to keep yourself and your passengers safe. Fortunately, the vehicle offers enough preventative and protective safety features to keep any driver at ease.
While it's not possible to completely avoid accidents or collisions, the Jeep Compass will do its part to keep you and your new ride out of harm's way. The Electronic Stability Control will assure that the driver will never lose command of the SUV, as braking and traction are both optimized.
Meanwhile, the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera allows drivers to monitor everything that's happening behind their vehicle. Whether they're about to hit a curb, a trash bin, or another vehicle, they'll be able to anticipate (and hopefully avoid) the obstacle thanks to this unique view.
Accidents can't be completely avoided. That's why Jeep added a number of safety functions that will keep the Compass's passengers protected in the case of an emergency.
The Compass features six "advanced, multistage driver and front-passenger" airbags, which includes the front seat-mounted side airbags. The side-impact door beams, the steel crossbeams, and the exterior crush zones will help absorb the energy from a collision, thus keeping it away from passengers. These should play an important role in preventing whiplash or any other neck injuries.
