When you’re in the market for a stylish compact crossover, take a closer look at the Compass. This option in the Jeep lineup received some impressive upgrades in its second generation, making it an excellent choice in the segment. Take a closer look at some of the most appealing features.
From the outside, the 2019 Jeep Compass is certainly eye-catching. It showcases an aggressive front end with an oversized grille and smooth, clean lines. Standard exterior equipment on the base model includes a set of 16-inch black steel wheels, halogen quad headlights, heated side mirrors, lower body-side cladding, and chrome front accents. As you move to the higher trim levels, you can get features such as larger wheels, upgraded exterior trim elements, a sunroof, a power-operated liftgate, and Xenon headlights.
If you plan to take your Compass off-roading, the Trailhawk is the best trim level for you. It comes equipped with 17-inch wheels, a raised suspension, underbody skid plates, a matte-black hood, off-roading tires, and red tow hooks. An available Cold Weather package also adds a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a windshield wiper de-icing system, all-season floor mats, remote vehicle start, and heated front seats.
Comfortable Cabin Features
Within the cabin of the base trim level, you’ll find cloth upholstery, a six-speaker audio system with a 7-inch touch screen, a USB port, dual-zone climate control, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. If you prefer a more luxurious interior, choose one of the upper trim levels to get leather upholstery, automatic climate control, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a larger 8.4-inch touch screen with an advanced version of the Uconnect infotainment system, a premium Beats sound system, and navigation.
Every Jeep Compass comes equipped with safety features designed to protect you and your passengers. These include four-wheel anti-lock brakes, advanced airbags, all-speed traction control, electronic stability control and roll mitigation, hill-start assist, and a rearview camera. An Advanced Safety package is also available, which adds automatic high beams, lane departure warning and intervention, adaptive cruise control, and forward-collision warning with mitigation.
Performance and Power
All four trim levels come equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 175 pound-feet of torque and 180 horsepower. It pairs with a six-speed manual transmission on the Sport and Latitude trims, while the others have either a six-speed or nine-speed automatic transmission.
Front-wheel drive is standard on all models except the Trailhawk, which is only available with all-wheel drive. That off-road model also has its own Selec-Terrain system that allows you to better manage any type of terrain you may be traveling on in the vehicle. You can upgrade any of the other three trim levels to have all-wheel drive.
