2021 Jeep Compass Buying Advice

From the 6 trim levels on the offer of the 2021 Jeep Compass, we would recommend you to opt for the Altitude trim with 4WD as the feature-rich build makes it a promising and value for money proposition. That being said, we would recommend you to splurge $2,600 extra to get the Convenience Group and Driver Assistance Group from the Packages which will make it truly immersive and safe like a tank.

2021 Jeep Compass Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The four-pot puts out only 180 hp and 175 lb-ft, so the Compass is far from athletic. -CarBuzz.com

The 2021 Jeep Compass comes with a 2.4L naturally aspirated inline-4 engine under the hood which is good for 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. This engine is made of ionized high-pressure aluminum alloy which aids in its performance and reduces overall weight. With this powertrain, the transmission choice varies depending on the drivetrain you choose. Pick up the 4x4 or 4WD models like the Trailhawk, and you will get a 9-speed automatic transmission while the 4x2 or FWD models like the Limited or Altitude trim will get a 6-speed automatic transmission.

2021 Jeep Compass comes with a 2.4L naturally aspirated inline-4 engine

Irrespective of the trim and drivetrain between FWD and 4WD that you choose for your Compass, the shifts in the transmission remain peppy and sublime and you will not find any complaints in the drive experience. For the price that you pay for the 2021 Compass, the ride quality is actually reminiscent of the age-old rugged SUV era and yet harnesses the classic feel of the new era. Overtaking isn’t a problem and the peppy nature of the engine ensures that there is ample power and torque available every time you floor the pedal.

The Jeep Compass has a 0-60 time of 8.7 seconds which does not make it very quick. Talking of a spirited drive, the Toyota RAV4 will surely charm the driver with its athletic nature. But when it comes to the ease of driving, the Subaru Forester does it for most people with its full-time AWD that is ready to conquer any terrain. The Jeep Compass might not be the most powerful but it has the best vibe and value for money in the lineup.

2021 Jeep Compass Fuel Economy

7.9/10

The 2.4L powerplant is fairly fuel-efficient and the 2021 Compass can return 22 MPG in the city, 30 MPG on the highway, and 25 MPG combined. The fuel tank is on the smaller side with a maximum capacity of 13.5 gallons that gets the job done in most cases for a family-friendly ride as you get a combined range of 337 miles after a full refuel.

2021 Jeep Compass uses a rather graphic way to represent the fuel capacity.

The MPG numbers that the 2021 Jeep Compass offers are in no way exemplary and do need a fair bit of rework if they want to make an impact. With these numbers, your fuel costs would run on the slightly higher side as the others are fairly well balanced and offer much better value in terms of fuel costs. The range however, is on the weaker end of the spectrum.

The Toyota RAV4 and the Subaru Forester are locked in the battle of being the best, but the latter loses out on account of the lower highway economy. The Hyundai Tucson actually finds itself out of bounds as the Jeep Compass manages to save its hide by that much, thanks to the marginally better highway economy.

2021 Jeep Compass Interior

7.7/10

Standard safety features on the Jeep Compass included side curtain airbags, traction control, and anti-lock brakes with rough-road detection. -TheCarConnection.com

There is an old-world vibe to the 5-seater interior with all the materials used. In order to remain competitively priced, a lot of hard plastic is used across all surfaces of the 2021 Compass but in no way does it ever feel tacky. Thankfully, most of the surfaces on the door are covered in cloth or soft-touch materials which give a slightly premium feel.

2021 Jeep Compass comes with a 5-seater setup.

The front seats offer ample space for adjustment for even the tall guys and the roof is placed at an adequate position that it does not bite into the eye-line and makes way for a great view of the road. The steering wheel is multifunction capable with auxiliary controls for the infotainment and cruise control settings on it as standard. Thanks to the tilt and telescopic adjustment capability, you'll be able to find that sweet spot between practicality and comfort very easily. 

The Sunroof on the 2021 Jeep Compass lights up the cabin and makes it feel bigger. 

While the front seats get most of the controls, the rear seats get the majority of the comfort. Even at full capacity, you will not be pushed for space. The tall guys might find it a little tight, but that is about it, little. Overall, the 2021 Compass comes with feature-rich interiors that have a little something for everyone and anyone and can keep everyone immersed in its magnanimous build.

The Forester offers the biggest cabin among the lot, which is followed by the RAV4 marginally. You might think that the compact-sized Jeep Compass might be short on space, but it is actually quite spacious for the passengers overall, the boxy design language actually makes way for a lot of room in the cabin which is the biggest advantage for the Jeep. The notable features of the cabin are:

  • Climate Control with Interior Air Filtration

As you move up the trim levels, the features start to get more advanced. Thankfully, the majority of the features are available even in the base Sport trim which makes it a total value for money investment. Standard on all the trims up to the Altitude is a Uconnect 4 7-inch touchscreen that is borrowed from the Renegade.

2021 Jeep Compass Exterior

6.9/10

There's no mistaking the 2021 Compass for anything but a Jeep—although we do think this is one of the prettier Jeep designs—and its ability to actually survive off-road is uncommon in this class. -CarAndDriver

When you look at the 2021 Jeep Compass, you can very well notice how well defined it is in terms of design by following the Jeep’s history. The signature seven-slot grille is the most distinctive yet the most cohesive feature of the entire design language. You get rugged and off-road touches to the exterior and an overall boxy dimensions. The LED headlights are wide and bright and the lines are sleek with rounded corners which gives it a much-needed macho stance that is reminiscent of being a Jeep.

2021 Jeep Compass looks great in all avatars and colors!

The Limited and Trailhawk trims are where the magic is at as it unlocks the best features for the exteriors ranging from 4x4 drivetrain and the dual-tone paint job to the Bi-Xenon HID headlamps and the LED Taillamps. These trims also get the Roof Rails from Mopar. The biggest distinguishing feature is the wheel size. While the trims from Sport trim gets 16-inch wheels, the Latitude and Traihawk trim get 17-inch wheels. The Altitude and Limited trims offer bigger 18-inch wheels while the 80th Anniversary trim offers the biggest one of the lot at 19-inches.

As you move to the back, the Jeep Compass actually carves a rather dominating silhouette with a ground clearance of 8.5-inches, but it's one that is still agreeable and smart. Compared to the rest, the Compass is certainly the bulkiest and that shows when you try to push it to perform. But thankfully, it's quite compact which helps it in city commutes and keeping it stable. The Hyundai Tucson clearly has the weight advantage here and is also the lowest sitting of the others.

2021 Jeep Compass Vs. 2021 Subaru Forester

The 2021 Subaru Forester has been around for a long time now to be called the veteran of the segment. With the full-time AWD and the boxer-4 powertrain, the ride packs the punch to go off-roads anytime and every time you wish. It's practical, utilitarian, and strikes the perfect balance in terms of the price it asks and features on the board with its performance and MPG numbers. In contrast, the 2021 Jeep Compass offers a more daunting road presence, modern yet rugged design, and comfortable interiors that make the case stronger for the Jeep.

2021 Jeep Compass Vs. 2021 Toyota RAV4

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the undefeated king of the segment as it is a blockbuster in all regards. It offers a great value for money proposition along with a globally acclaimed design that is loved by all. Its MPG figures are exemplary and so is its love for the outdoors and adventures. Add to that the reliability of being a Toyota, and the Jeep might start to feel weak at the knees. The 2021 Jeep Compass, despite its competitive price tag and magnanimous build, struggles to keep up with the momentum that the Toyota RAV4 sets forth.

2021 Jeep Compass Vs. 2021 Hyundai Tucson

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson is the safe, and tried and tested option here. It's something that has a little something for everyone and yet does not falter from the original ethos of the segment of being a feature-packed and cost-effective ride. It gets the best warranty in the lot and is also the sleekest looking option. While it does not impress in any aspect really, it offers a little of everything to maintain a jack of all trades approach. The aspect where the Jeep Compass takes the cake is in the customizability it can offer right from the base trim while the Tucson unlocks many features with the mid-tier and upper-tier trims.

2021 Jeep Compass Final Verdict

The 2021 Jeep Compass has bought a lot of improvements, starting from the engine to the infotainment and the biggest ones to the safety suite. The drivetrain is perfect for off-roading but still have a long way to go to achieve a fuel-efficient approach. The interiors are also comfortable and feature-rich as are expected from the Compass. So if you want a versatile and robust high riding off-roader, that can also support you in milk runs, then the 2021 Jeep Compass is the perfect value for money option that you should consider.

Compass

Pros - Cargo space is good, fuel-economy, ease of driving

Cons - Infotainment is confusing and slow, the screen size should be bigger, turning radius is big

Jeep can do better If there is one thing Compass excels at it has to be- just how easy it is to drive. This is not my first SUV but it sure is the best when it comes to how easy and convenient it is easy to drive. So natural and smooth that barely lets the driver notice it is a big SUV. Suitable for families. And if we exclude the infotainment system, the interior is also pretty decent. Everything seems to be in perfect shape. I don't have any problems with the ergonomics whatsoever.

No problems

Pros - Mostly everything

Cons - Sensitive ABS

Great value for the money! Better at the cornering machine than my previous car. It handles really well be it traffic, corners, or anywhere else. The engine is responsive and is fun to drive. Leather seats, great gas mileage, fun to drive! It is roomy as one expects from an SUV. I can comfortably fit my family of 4 with no complaints whatsoever. The seats are comfortable and are very supportive. The speakers are also pretty good. In short, I like everything about my new Jeep. Love the design and everything about it! The front grille, side boxy design, and the wheels! Hate airbags but understand the purpose. Comforting to know there are curtain airbags for extra safety precautions Always ready to go! Take good care of it and it will take care of Paid a little over $30k including destination charges and accessories. you.

My experience so far

Pros - Towing, utility, seating space

Cons - Handling, parking is a pain, stop and start a fuel-saving tech

So far, very satisfied. Good value! Not the best when it comes to driveability. Definitely lacks power for that and more importantly handling is really poor. Not many extras on this car. Very basic Comfortable seats with good back and thigh support. Easy to see out all the windows. Very airy and not claustrophobic at all. Looks like a Matchbox car! But I like the boxy look so I like the compass. Handling is not good because of which it feels a little scary to drive around corners. Seems reliable so With all the features and packages added the monthly lease payment is a little above $400. far.
