Overall Rating


Part of the 2016 second generation the Jeep Compass has been placed in between the Jeep Renegade and the Jeep Cherokee, ensuring that you have a capable off-roader at every price bracket in the market. Looking back at how the crossovers have taken over the industry, the Jeep Compass still remains the industry’s one of the most favored crossovers selling over 500,000 units in the 4 years of its market existence. Now, that’s impressive!

2021 Jeep Compass Features

7.5/10

The 2021 Jeep Compass will reach the dealerships in a total of 4 trims, namely - Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk. The price range starts at $23,600 for the base Sport trim and climbs up the ladder to the fully loaded High Altitude trim, which retails for $31,170.

The list of standard features is impressive, for a price like this. And the price difference between the trims is justified by all the equipment that the Compass comes equipped with. As the prices for the 2021 Compass are still not released to the public, we are taking into consideration the prices of the 2020 model year.

Many of the features of the higher trims can be added to the lower trims by the way of optional packages. Some of the more important packages are the Safety and Security Group and Advanced Security Group which add a considerable amount of driver safety assistance. Some notable stand-alone options include a sunroof, navigation, a premium 9-speaker Alpine audio setup, and xenon headlamps.

2021 Jeep Compass Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Fiat Chrysler Association, the owner of Jeep, has an extensive service network in the States and you won’t face a problem if you are in trouble. Talking of repairs, if you come across any, you’ll have to shell out just $825 in a span of 75,000 miles. However, what really eats out the value of this Jeep is the depreciation that the Compass incurs, about $14,977 in a span of 5 years.

Talking of prices, the prices start at $21,600 for the base trim. Some states have certain benefits from the government and hence, owning a car is relatively cheaper there. The 2021 model year prices are still unannounced but to give you a perspective, we are considering the 2020 model year.

The folks in North Carolina are in for a surprise because the Jeep Compass is the most affordable for them. Maintaining a Compass is comparatively inexpensive, amassing an amount of $526, for the 2020 model year, which remains in-line with the other cars in this category. For the 2021 model year, we don’t expect the maintenance cost to change whatsoever.

Ownership costs will rack up to nearly $36,500 including depreciation, insurance, maintenance, and fuel. This cost has been derived assuming that the car is being driven for 15,000 miles each in 5 years. This cost of maintenance is lower than many and is rather economical, considering what all the Compass has to offer.

Warranty

Jeep has ensured that the customer is at his perfect peace of mind by providing a number of warranties which include:

Limited Warranty 

3 years or 36,000 miles

Powertrain Warranty

5 years or 60,000 miles

Corrosion Warranty

5 years or 100,000 miles

Emissions Warranty

8 years or 80,000 miles

There is no complimentary scheduled maintenance from Jeep’s end but with so many warranties on board, will you need it?

Miles per Dollar

We had put an estimate of $34,507 for 5 years, 15,000 miles each year. This equates to $55,000 for 75000 miles, that is, a running cost of $0.46 per mile! This calculation factors in many parameters like insurance, maintenance, repairs, depreciation, and fuel.

2021 Jeep Compass Buying Advice

We’d recommend hunting for the base ‘Sport’ trim with Four-Wheel Drive because the equipment it offers is more than enough for your daily needs. It also gets a stick shifter which is more frugal than the automatics and thus, provides the best value for money. 

We’d also suggest you check out the Safety and Security Package that adds driver-assist highlights such as blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, etc. Moreover, if your Compass is going to spend a lot of time in snowy conditions, you can also consider the Cold Weather Package that adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and heated steering wheel to the mix.

Should you buy a used Jeep Compass?

Edmunds say that 24.21% of the value of the Compass depreciates in the first year itself and then it gradually becomes as low as 12%. So, in case you go for a used Jeep Compass, for a little money, you can score yourself a great deal and get a lot of features. 

Moreover, Jeep has a wide service network across the country and keeping in mind the maintenance costs are average according to the segment, the Jeep Compass is one hell of a car to go looking for in the used cars market. 

2021 Jeep Compass Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The 2020 Jeep Compass has a 2.4L naturally aspirated in-line 4 engine under the hood which is good for 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. But for 2021, the Compass’ 2.4L powerplant has been scrapped and replaced by a 1.3L turbocharged inline-4 borrowed from the Renegade which is good for 150 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque, a bump of 25 lb-ft from the older powertrain. This engine is made of ionized high-pressure aluminum alloy which aids in its performance and reduces overall weight.

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Engine

This engine is mated to a 9-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). There’s also a 6-speed manual on offer but you will have to give up 20 horsepower for that. The Compass has both Front-Wheel Drive and 4 Wheel Drive available. You can upgrade your Front-Wheel driven Compass to a 4 Wheel Drive by paying in some extra bucks. There’s a new Sport mode added to the 2021 model year which maps the throttle and the gearbox for some spirited driving.

The new turbo-4 model is no slouch. 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. There’s also some engineering done to reduce the turbo lag in this engine by connecting the turbocharger to the ECU. What it does is keep the turbocharger ready for any sudden burst of acceleration that might be needed when you floor the pedal.

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 of the people with its impressive CVT. The Jeep Compass might not be the most powerful but it has the highest pick-up than any car in the group.

2021 Jeep Compass Acceleration and Braking Performance

The newer powerplant has been announced but not yet tested on a Jeep Compass. Although it is used on the Renegade, there’s a whole world of difference between the two cars. What we can surely assure is that the engine has a very peppy nature with torque available on lower RPMs for quick overtakes.

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Accelerate 0-60 MPH Just in 9.1 Sec.

This peppy nature will also be aided by the new ECU controlled turbo spool to make sure that the Compass lunges forward whenever the pedal is to the floor! Then, there’s the 9-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission to enable quick and smooth gear changes whenever the throttle requires it. But, if you are still interested in some numbers, the older 2.4L naturally aspirated mill can do a 0-60 miles per hour run in 9.1 seconds followed by a 17-second quarter-mile.

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Accelerate Come 60-0 MPH Just In 140 Ft

Talking of the brakes, they are to be carried over as it is from the 2020 model year. The hardware consists of a 12-inch rotor in the front and an 11-inch rotor at the rear. They do a very good job of keeping the SUV stable while braking. Yet, the Compass being a Compass tends to nose dive a little when subjected to hard braking. The perfectly tuned suspension also plays a major part in making the braking experience smooth. The brake pedals give a lot of confidence and feel firm.

The Subaru Forester is the first one to lunge forward from a standstill but when it comes to maintaining that lead, the Subaru loses it to the RAV4. The RAV4 gaps every SUV when it comes to the quarter-mile. The Compass is as fast (or slow) as the RAV4 in the 0-60 sprint and the slowest to reach the quarter-mile. The Forester and the Tucson share similar quarter-mile times, which is not far from the Compass.

When it comes to braking, the Subaru excels in stopping at the shortest distance and the oh so fast RAV4 is not as good in braking as good as it is in acceleration. The Compass’ performance here too is average but we expect an improvement over these numbers with the newer powerplant and improvement made on the brakes.

2021 Jeep Compass Fuel Economy

7.9/10

There’s a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder powering the 2020 Compass, which, despite being a 2.4-liter powerplant, provides impressive fuel economy. The EPA rates the fuel economy for the Compass at 22 in the city and 30 on the highway. The combined EPA rated economy turns out to be 25 miles per gallon. There’s a 13.5-gallon fuel tank storing all the gas that you need while driving in town or on the highways.

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Instrument Cluster

The newer turbo-4 is slated to be more frugal than the 2.4L naturally aspirated power plant but it hasn’t been tested in the real world yet. But with the sophisticated tech that Jeep is now providing with the 2021 model year, frugality is expected to go up.

The Forester is the one with the most range and the biggest tank out here. The Jeep Compass isn’t the gas guzzler that one might expect looking at the mpg figures but yes, the naturally aspirated engine does lag behind when it comes to giving out miles per gallon, but the Compass also has the smallest fuel tank which affects the range. The Hyundai Tucson and the Toyota RAV4 are similarly matched when it comes to in-city mileage but the Tucson lags behind when it comes to hitting the highway despite having a bigger tank!

2021 Jeep Compass Interior

7.7/10

There is an old-fashioned vibe to the interior with all the materials inside. Most of the visible surfaces have soft-touch material covering them. The center console might feel a little wobbly at times but it’s okay considering the price point. There’s a high step to get into the rear seats which might lead to some dirty pants but when you get in you’ll realize that the boxy shape of the compass helps it to make the cabin spacious for the passengers.

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Seats

Talking of cubby spaces, you get a couple of cup holders in the center console. The center console storage in itself can hold some items. The glove box is not big but can store quite a bit of stuff. The rear seats have storage spaces behind the front seats.

Talking of seating, the wide and roomy interiors promise a very comfortable ride for a long commute. Traveling across the States with 5 people on-board won’t be an issue, given the fuel economy that it provides. The seats are padded well which further enhances the interior comfort.

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Sunroof

The boot is good enough to hold two big suitcases, along with one small suitcase and a bag. There is a small boot lip which makes loading and unloading a tad bit difficult. The boot is square, which helps in storing that much. There are some tethering points and power sockets for added convenience.

The cabin of all the cars is similarly sized but the Subaru offers more space to the occupants than the rest. The Tucson also provides a very roomy cabin for the front passengers as well as the rear passengers. The main factor that differentiates the cars here is the boot space. The Jeep has the least and the Toyota, the most. The main advantage of the Jeep here is the square shape of its boot which ensures that the maximum items can be loaded inside the boot.

2021 Jeep Compass Infotainment System

Coming as standard on all the trims is a 7-inch touchscreen that is borrowed from the Renegade. It looks out of place due to it being just too small for an SUV like this. The user interface on this screen lags a lot and is not a good experience. C

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Infotainment Display

limbing up the trims, you’ll get the new UConnect 5 infotainment system on board. The touchscreen on the higher models is expected to grow bigger in size than the previous-gen 8.4-inch screen. This system provides a user interface that is very fluid to interact with and is also very rich in terms of the colors used. You can connect this system to your phone by using the UConnect 5 application. You get your Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. AM/FM/SiriusXM radio is standard. Some of the other standard infotainment features include:

  • Steering-wheel mounted audio controls
  • 6 speakers/ 9 Alpine speakers
  • 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Real-time weather display

2021 Jeep Compass Exterior

6.9/10

You can see a very definitive styling line being followed throughout Compass’s history. You get rugged and off-road touches to the exterior and a boxy stance. The headlights are wide and bright and the lines are sleek with rounded corners. Then there’s the 7-slot grille upfront.

2021 Jeep Compass SUV Third Quarter View

The wheel arches imitate the Grand Cherokee and also add to the road presence of the Compass. The dimensions of the SUV are such that the interior is comfortable and the exterior is rugged. For 2021, there have been some tweaks made to the exterior but they might not be visible at first glance. Some of the exterior features are:

  • Fully galvanized steel body material
  • Bodyside cladding
  • Heated door mirrors
  • Power liftgate
  • Rear lip spoiler

The Hyundai Tucson clearly has the weight advantage here and is also the lowest siting of the others. The wheelbase is similar to the others. The Jeep is very compact on the outside and has the shortest wheelbase of all, which helps it in city commutes, going around tight corners and roundabouts. But, the one thing playing against it is its weight, which can also be seen in the braking performance of the Compass.

2021 Jeep Compass Safety

7.1/10

The Compass is a well put together car. There are no doubts surrounding the safety on this SUV, apart from a 4-star rating from the NHTSA. But, the IIHS rates the Compass as ‘good’ and the folks at Jeep have made it a point to make the Compass as safe as the word means to the customers. They have fitted the Compass with many safety features and driver aids to cement the safety quotient. Some of these features are:

  • Driveline Traction Control System
  • Anti-whiplash front head restraints

2021 Jeep Compass Competition

6.0/10

2021 Jeep Compass Vs. Subaru Forester

The Subaru is a very capable machine. It's practical, can go off-the-road, and is very efficient. The Subaru Forester is a great value for money but the powertrain of this Subie isn’t strong enough.

The Compass has a better and more powerful engine and provides a lot more interior space. The Compass also looks very Jeep: rugged and off-road worthy.

2021 Jeep Compass Vs. Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 and the Compass are equally matched in off-road competition. The Jeep looks sophisticated, unlike Toyota, and also carries itself well in every aspect of a drive.

It drives well, the engine is adequately powerful and the gear changes are slick! The RAV4 offers a better-built cabin, and also has a very strong mpg figure. And being a Toyota it's the utmost reliable!

2021 Jeep Compass Vs. Hyundai Tucson

Tucson is a great value for money product. It is an all-rounder in the maintenance aspect and is covered by Hyundai’s segment-leading warranty, which it may not require too often. The styling is subtle and pleases many.

But the Jeep has a better and more powerful engine and provides a lot of space, unlike the Tucson. Plus, you can have driver aids on the lower trims by adding in some $ to the Compass but is not the case with the Tucson.

2021 Jeep Compass Final Verdict

The 2021 Jeep Compass has bought a lot of improvements, starting from the engine to the infotainment. The engine is frugal and will solve the older gen’s ‘feeling underpowered’ issue with a new turbocharger. It also makes accessing the car easy from your mobile phone, and this could be a deal maker for many. It looks great and the interior’s nice. Great value for money for someone who is interested in off-roading and going to get some groceries, at the same time!

It drives smoothly but while I slow down the speed I could hear some glowing sound from the engine.I don't know what happened then I took my car to the service person. They checked to make sure the issue if it happened in the future means I would definitely return the car and get back the money.

Perfect car to drive on city and highway.

Pros - MPg, 6 speaker stereo system, adjustable driver seat.

Cons - Automatic gear transmission is not quicker in speed.

On operating automatic gear shifting it delivers mileage around 24mpg in the city and above 30mpg on the highway side.

Interior is confined to get less comfort.

I am afraid of buying the 4WD drive whether it spoils the gas mileage but it rewards solid gas mileage, and without missing good driving dynamics.

This mid size SUV is smooth to drive.

I really bought this one to drive and survive on the snow covered road at my place. It is really doing great on this kind of road which is a very good sign.
