How Much Does a 2018 Jeep Compass Cost?

The 2018 Jeep Compass is a small 5-seater crossover that comes in Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk trim levels. The Trailhawk has all-wheel drive and the 9-speed automatic transmission as standard.

The all-wheel-drive variants of the Sport, Latitude and Limited trims 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.

The Sport ($22,090) comes with 16-inch steel wheels, push-button start, cruise control, black door handles, heated side mirrors, air conditioning, a USB port, Bluetooth, an auxiliary audio input, 6-way manually adjustable front seats, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel, a 6-speaker audio system, a 5-in touchscreen, hill-start assist, a rearview camera and trailer sway control.

The Latitude ($25,390) brings 17-in alloy wheels, body color door handles, automatic head lamps, fog lamps, roof rails, ambient LED cabin lighting, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and cloth/simulated leather upholstery. There's no front-drive/manual transmission version of this trim level.

The Limited ($28,690) is back to the more usual road-going setup, adding 18-in alloy wheels, a self-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, heated front seats, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat and a heated steering wheel.

The Trailhawk ($29,790) 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. It also features dual-zone automatic climate control, a 115-volt power outlet, satellite radio and an 8.5-in touchscreen.

Options include a powered tailgate, high-intensity discharge (HID) head lamps, a sunroof (not eligible in Sport trim), 19-in alloy wheels (Limited trim only), rain-sensing wipers, a 9-speaker Beats audio system, navigation, an 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 upwards -- are eligible.

Competition

2018 Jeep Compass vs the competition

2018 Subaru Crosstrek -- All new for 2018. More refined than the first generation, but still low on power. All-wheel drive comes as standard.

2018 Jeep Renegade -- If the extra space of the Compass is not required, the less-expensive Renegade is still attractive in its own way.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport -- Interesting from a cost/space/equipment perspective, but relatively ancient.

2018 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.
