2016 Jeep Compass Reviews
The Compass, a compact crossover SUV, is related to the more popular Jeep Patriot, and both are scheduled to be replaced for 2017 by a new crossover.
The Compass comes with a choice of four-cylinder engines and front-wheel drive or two full-time four-wheel-drive systems. It competes with the Chevrolet Equinox, Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4 and other small crossovers.
