2017 Jeep Compass X Walk Around


Although the styling is influenced by Cherokee, it’s still a bit trapezoidal with rounded edges, a design that looks confused.

Interior

The dashboard isn’t as blocky as it used to be, and there are some soft-touch materials on the door panels, but the cabin doesn’t feel of very high quality even with leather upholstery. It’s not up to the speed of rivals like the Subaru Crosstrek, Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, or Volkswagen Tiguan. The interior doesn’t match that of the smaller Jeep Renegade, a newer design.

Some of what makes the Compass feel dated is the low seating position; other SUVs seat the driver higher, for a better view of the road. However, a height-adjustable driver seat is available. The front seats are comfortable enough, but the rear bench is hard and flat, and the middle passenger’s knees will be battling with those of the luckier rear window passengers. There’s also a cupholder in the way of that middle passenger.

The laminated windshield glass helps subdue the noisy engine, but we can’t say much more for refinement.
