2010 Jeep Compass Sport SUV

2010 Jeep Compass Review

(2 Stars)  No real sport or utility

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Jeep Compass is one of the smaller and sleek designed 4WD vehicles from Jeep. This model can almost fit into the crossover category with its high fuel economy and well equipped interior that is ready for long rides. The Jeep compass offers a 29 MPG rating on the highway and does not have the same boxy rugged look that you would expect from Jeep, this model has a much smoother and more aerodynamic look. Starting at only $15,365 the Jeep Compass is also one of the most economically priced Jeeps. The Compass was not built to be the biggest or toughest Jeep on the market, but to be a more fun entry level vehicle.

The small four cylinder engine that comes on the Compass shows that it was not really intended for any major off road driving, but it does offer a 4WD transmission for those who want to give it a try. The interior of the Compass is considered to be lacking too. There are many interior parts that are made of hard plastic and are far from high quality craftsmanship, but these same inadequacies are found in higher end models like the Liberty and Patriot.
