Jeep Compass Performance
Regardless of trim level, the 2018 Jeep Compass is equipped with a 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four engine that produces 175 pound-feet of torque. With the exception of the Sport trim, which has a standard transmission with six speeds and an available automatic transmission with nine speeds, all trim levels have a standard, automatic transmission. The Trailhawk is equipped with all-wheel drive standard, but the other trim levels are front-wheel drive, with the option of all-wheel drive.
The Compass has remarkably car-like steering and a smooth, comfortable ride, though its suspension is well-suited to the curvy, rough terrain encountered in off-road environments. The various road conditions are easily-absorbed, and there’s just enough driver feedback.
The performance and handling is consistent across trim levels, but the Trailhawk trim is designed for off-road prowess. It comes standard with off-road tires, an off-road-specialized suspension, and the Selec-Terrain system for maneuvering through the rocky, slippery or rapidly-changing, off-road environment.
Jeep Compass Interior
The Jeep Compass interior is decked out with stylish and lush materials, as well as premium cloth and luxurious leather accents. It’s also spacious and comfortable, with significant usability and access. The control panel has a logical layout that’s exceptionally user-friendly, and the driver and passenger’s seat heights are perfect. In addition, the door openings allow easy entry and exit, as well as considerable space.
Thanks to the 60/40-split folding rear seats, there’s ample cargo room and a flat load space with the seats folded down. There’s also a roomy glove compartment and several small storage bins and cubbies throughout the cabin. Over bumpy and uneven roads, your stored belongings, cups, and bottles are safe and secure.
Technology in the 2018 Jeep Compass
Jeep’s Uconnect system is a highly-intuitive infotainment system that offers sharp graphics and an accurate touchscreen. It also offers customized menus that highlight the most frequently used functions for easy access and availability. A 5-inch touchscreen is standard with the Sport trim, and an 8.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard for the Limited trim.
Other standard technology features include a USB port, a premium sound system, and Bluetooth connectivity, with an upscale Beats audio system as an available option. The Compass also has many options packages, such as the Advanced Safety and Lighting package, which includes safety features like lane departure alert, forward-collision alert, and xenon headlights.
