Jeep Compass

(2018 - present)

The Jeep Compass is a mid-sized SUV, which was revealed in America in late 2016 but did not reach UK showrooms until early 2018. It sits between the smaller Renegade and larger Cherokee in the Jeep range.

Despite a more urban focus than traditional Jeep models, the Compass still retains the company’s traditional off-roading ability and is far more suited to rough terrain than most of its rivals.

The Jeep Compass has received poor to average reviews from most of the UK motoring media. As of April 2020, our unique Expert Rating system – based on 15 different reviews from leading UK automotive media sites – places the Compass last of 18 cars analysed in the mid-sized SUV/crossover segment.

The Compass has received praise for its impressive off-road abilities, being one of the few SUVs that is actually comfortable on anything tougher than a gravel driveway. However, has been criticised for its on-road dynamics and lack of sophistication in one of the most competitive segments in the UK new car market.
