Jeep Compass 2017

2017 Jeep Compass Expert Rundown

Looking for a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can still handle a dirt road? The 2017 Jeep Compass might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

Transcript

[MUSIC PLAYING] I'm editor Travis Langness, and this is an Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Jeep Compass. [SPEAKER 1] For 2017, the Jeep Compass is completely redesigned. It's an all new car inside and out, looks different, new power trains, new styling. This Compass kind of fits in between the smaller Renegade and the larger standard Cherokee, which is below the Grand Cherokee. And it's still got that rugged Jeep styling you've come to expect, that kind of classic Jeep grill. It's got a base 2.4 liter engine, which is in a couple other Jeeps. But that engine's pretty underwhelming, as is the optional nine speed automatic that it often gets paired with, especially when you get the four wheel drive. We recommend the standard six speed manual, or if you get the front drive version of the Compass, the six speed automatic. It's pretty capable off road though, especially in this Trail Hawk version. it's got a raised suspension, different tires, unique front bumper, and Jeeps select train system, that will basically help you get over almost all the off road obstacles you're going to come across in this. Inside there's kind of a poor seating position up front, and not a ton of room in the back. Like I said, it's in between that smaller Renegade and the standard Cherokee. You'll get a little bit more room in the Cherokee. But there's decent space up front. Also the Uconnect screen is a favorite of ours in the class. There's quick touch screen responses, good menu layout, and lots of simple controls. [MUSIC PLAYING] [SPEAKER 1] The bottom line is that the 2017 Jeep Compass is a huge improvement on the outgoing model. It might be a little bit less comfortable than some of its top rivals, but it's an interesting choice that's super impressive off road. Be sure to check out rivals like the Honda CRV, the Subaru Crosstrek, and the KIA Sportage. For more Edmond's expert rundowns, click the link to subscribe. [MUSIC PLAYING] [NO AUDIO]
