The Jeep Compass is built like a car and drives like a car, but it has the kind of versatility and capability associated with a small SUV. It’s available in two trim levels and with two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and delivers commendable fuel economy.
The Compass is available with a choice of two engines. The standard engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 16 valves, electronic variable valve timing that continually optimizes the torque curve, and balance shafts. It delivers 172 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque. With two-wheel drive it is EPA-rated at 23 mpg City, 28 mpg Highway with the manual transmission and 21/25 with the CVT automatic. New is a 2.0-liter 16-valve four-cylinder, also with variable valve timing and balance shafts, with 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque.
The Compass Sport 2WD come standard with cloth upholstery; air conditioning; tilt steering wheel; outside-temperature indicator; AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary audio jack; fog lamps; roof rails; and P215/60R17 tires on aluminum wheels.
