According to Cars.com, the Jeep Compass is hindered by lackluster performance and a poorly executed interior. Other opinions may differ, though it’s worth taking a gander at the results of the comparison.
There were seven SUVs that were judged in twelve different categories: interior quality, front-seat comfort, backseat comfort, cargo storage, in-cabin storage, handling, powertrain, ride quality, noise, visibility, worth the money and multimedia. Below you’ll see the placement of each vehicle:
- 7th – 2017 Jeep Compass
- 6th – 2017 Nissan Rogue
- 5th – 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
- 4th – 2017 Ford Escape
- 3rd – 2017 Mazda CX-5
- 2nd – 2017 Honda CR-V
- 1st – 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
So, the Jeep Compass not only comes in last place, but it also costs more than the vehicle that came in first. In addition to the inferior performance and interior, the Compass was criticized for being less spacious than the competition.
It wasn’t all bad, though. The Compass received praise for its easy-to-use Uconnect multimedia system. We also think the Compass is just the right size for Jeep’s portfolio, as the automaker offers bigger vehicles for those who need it. Perhaps a little refinement could go a long way for the Compass, though we wouldn’t hold our breath for such drastic changes so quickly.
