Which Compass is the Best?

A logical choice would be the Latitude trim, perhaps with a few options. Going for something more expensive brings us closer to Jeep Cherokee territory.

How Much Does a 2017 Jeep Compass Cost?

The 2017 Jeep Compass small 5-seater crossover comes in Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk trim levels. Limited and Trailhawk have all-wheel drive and the 9-speed automatic transmission as standard.

The all-wheel-drive variants of Sport, Latitude and Limited come with a basic terrain response system, while the Trailhawk version has a more sophisticated version, plus low-range gearing for its transmission and a crawl mode.

Sport ($21,035) comes with 16-inch steel wheels, push-button start, cruise control, black door handles, heated side mirrors, air conditioning, USB port, auxiliary audio input, 6-way manually adjustable front seats, tilt/telescope steering wheel, 6-speaker audio system, 5-in touchscreen, hill-start assist, rearview camera and trailer sway control.

Latitude ($25,435) brings 17-in alloy wheels, body color door handles, automatic headlamps, fog lamps, roof rails, ambient LED cabin lighting, leather-wrapped steering wheel and cloth/simulated leather upholstery. There's no front-drive/manual transmission version of this trim level.

Trailhawk ($29,690) has a more off-road-appropriate suspension with greater travel, higher ride height, dedicated front and rear fascia, hill descent control, 17-in alloy wheels, skid plates (to protect the undersides of various components), tow hooks (two at the front, one at the back) and all-season on/off-road tires, dual-zone automatic climate control, 115-volt power outlet, satellite radio and an 8.5-in touchscreen.

Limited ($30,090) is back to the more usual road-going setup, adding 18-in alloy wheels, self-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, heated front seats, 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat and a heated steering wheel.

Options include a powered tailgate, high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, sunroof (not eligible in Sport trim), 19-in alloy wheels (Limited trim only), rain-sensing wipers, 9-speaker Beats audio system, navigation, 8.5-in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, parking sensors and remote start. Some equipment in the Limited trim may also be ordered for lower trim levels.

Cargo capacity runs to 27.2 cu ft. with the rear seats in place, or 59.8 cu ft. when they're folded down. The front passenger seat also folds down for some extra hauling versatility.

Towing capacity is 2,000 pounds when fitted with a Trailer Tow package, for which only the all-wheel-drive versions -- in Latitude trim or upward -- are eligible.

Jeep Compass Safety

Is the 2017 Jeep Compass a Safe Car?

Standard safety features anti-lock disc brakes, traction/stability control with rollover protection and seven airbags (including one for the driver's knees). More money must be spent to have things such as a rearview camera and forward-collision mitigation.

This generation of Compass has yet to be crash tested by any agencies in the United States.

Competition

2017 Jeep Compass vs the competition

2017 Subaru Forester -- All-wheel drive comes as standard, and the Forester is tough, spacious and practical.

2017 Jeep Renegade -- If the extra space of the Compass is not required, the less expensive Renegade is still attractive in its own way.

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport -- Interesting from a cost/space/equipment perspective, but relatively ancient.

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack -- Essentially, a Golf wagon with a raised suspension and all-wheel drive. It also has a pleasant interior and refined driving manners.

Used Honda CR-V -- Admittedly, there's no rugged, Jeep-like coolness to the CR-V. But if anyone is looking for a good, reliable, used compact crossover, this does the job. A certified pre-owned (CPO) version comes with a decent warranty.
