What You Will Like

The Jeep Compass is one of the lowest-priced off-road capable utility vehicles on the market. With distinctive styling reminiscent of the upscale Cherokee, it's also a standout design in a crowded segment. Ease of parking and maneuverability remain strengths for the model and it's also reasonably fuel-efficient at an EPA-estimated 31 mpg highway. When properly equipped, the Compass can tow up to 2,000 pounds. And its off-road prowess is rooted in Jeep's legacy of go-anywhere, do-anything capability, particularly in the Trailhawk variant.

For 2019, the Jeep Compass gets a few changes to the options packages. A new Upland Edition trim package is available which bring in some of the styling from the Trailhawk trim. Another new trim package is the High Altitude, which features several interior and exterior upgrades. Both the Sport and Latitude will come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. And finally, adaptive cruise control is now offered as an option.

Introduction

Redesigned as a 2019 model, the compact Jeep Compass crossover SUV doesn’t veer far from Jeep’s off-road reputation—but rather than go full-bore, it leans more toward the practical and the useful.

Four trim levels are offered: Sport, Latitude, Limited, and rugged Trailhawk. Upland, Altitude, and High Altitude are option packages.

An Upland special-edition variant of Sport trim level is available for the 2019 model year, with 17-inch wheels, a front skid plate, and a black grille and roof. Limited Compasses can have a new High Altitude appearance package, with satin gloss 19-inch wheels, an 8.4inch touchscreen with navigation, HID headlights, and a black roof. Adaptive cruise control has been added to the Advanced Safety Group Package. Sport and Latitude models now have a 7.0-inch display screen.

Every Compass holds a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard on Sport and four-wheel-drive Latitude models. Front-drive Latitude and Limited models get a standard 6-speed automatic transmission. A 9-speed automatic is standard on Trailhawk and four-wheel-drive Limited, and optional for lesser trim levels with 4WD.

Sport, Latitude, and Limited trim levels have standard front-wheel drive, with four-wheel drive an option. Trailhawk versions are four-wheel-drive only.

Official rating agencies disagree on crashworthiness. The IIHS gave the 2019 Compass top “Good” scores on each crash test. When properly equipped, the small crossover earned a “Superior” rating for frontal-crash prevention. The Compass earned only a four-star score overall and for the frontal crash from the NHTSA.

Jeep offers active-safety features on all but the base model. They can be fitted with optional forward-collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and rear parking sensors.

Lineup

Prices do not include $1,495 destination charge.

Sport ($21,845 with front-drive, $23,345 with four-wheel drive) comes with manual transmission, dual-zone automatic climate control, 16-inch steel wheels, cloth upholstery, remote keyless entry, and a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A 6-speed automatic transmission adds $1,500.

Upland ($23,345 with 4WD only) includes a rugged-look front fascia, black accents, body-color mirrors, and 17-inch wheels.

Latitude ($25,095 with FWD, $25,095 with 4WD) includes automatic headlights, 17-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth/vinyl upholstery, privacy glass, and cornering lights. An Advanced Safety group is optional.

Altitude ($26,515 with FWD, $28,015 with 4WD) features black accents, two-tone exterior with black roof, piano black interior accents, black cloth/vinyl seating, and 18-inch wheels.

Limited ($28,195 with FWD, $29,695 with 4WD) includes heated perforated leather-trimmed front seats, heated steering wheel, a power driver’s seat, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, 18-inch wheels, and a 7.0-inch instrument cluster. Front-drive versions include a 6-speed automatic; four-wheel drive, a 9-speed.

Trailhawk 4WD ($29,195) gets the 9-speed automatic, black roof, cloth/leather seat upholstery, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 7.0-inch instrument display, 17-inch all-terrain tires, and red tow hooks.

High Altitude ($30,190 with FWD, $31,690 with 4WD) upgrades the Latitude trim, adding navigation, 19-inch wheels, bi-xenon HID headlights, black leather-trimmed seats with accent stitching, and BeatsAudio sound.

Walkaround

Family resemblances are hard to miss. Bigger than a Jeep Renegade but smaller than a Cherokee, the handsome Compass borrows a sizable portion of its good looks from both the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee.

Up front is the usual Jeep seven-slot grille, but softer lines separate the Compass from a Wrangler or Renegade. Along the bodysides and approaching the tail, the compact Compass looks more modern – especially with a contrasting-color roof.

The base Sport model lacks standard roof rails and alloy wheels. Trailhawks get their own strapping appearance, with tow hooks, husky tires, and bumpers that provide greater clearance.

Interior

Organic shapes and toned-down lines greet passengers entering the Compass. Climate controls and other selectors sit below the 7.0-inch infotainment screen, while a chunky traction-control knob is mounted below the center stack.

In both materials and execution of details, the cabin looks pleasantly upscale. Base models contain durable cloth upholstery. The Latitude trim steps up to a sturdy-looking blend of synthetic material and cloth, and the Trailhawk’s seats wear leather and cloth. Top-rung Limited trim features full leather that feels thin but appealing.

The Compass’ front seats are a bit narrow and thinly padded. Every Compass has a height-adjustable driver’s seat, but power seats are an option. Two adults should be comfortable in back, but three across have less space. At 38.3 inches, rear legroom beats the average. Headroom is abundant for taller riders.

With rear seatbacks upright, cargo volume totals 27.2 cubic feet – about right for the class. Folding the seatbacks expands space to 59.8 cubic feet, but the cargo floor is taller off the ground than most.

Driving Impressions

Rather than aiming for challenging off-road adventures, Jeep’s Compass emphasizes comfort and usability. Civilized and quietly comfortable, this compact SUV is more at home around town than traversing the craggy wilderness.

Power is adequate in suburban driving, but feels pokier on the open road. The 9-speed automatic flicks between a lot of gears as it hunts for speed, but it needs prodding to kick down for highway passing.

Like many compact crossovers, the Compass steers well and rides quite comfortably, its fully independent suspension handily soaking up pavement imperfections. Ride quality isn’t marred by 17-inch wheels, but a Limited, with larger wheels, can become jittery.

Trailhawk models, in particular, are set up for off-road experiences. Helpful features include a simulated low-speed first gear with 20:1 crawl ratio, a “Rock” terrain-selection setting, and a raised suspension.

For a compact SUV, the Compass is reasonably fuel-efficient. A Compass with front-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual is EPA-rated at 23/32 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. Automatic drops those ratings to 22/31/25 mpg. Four-wheel drive is EPA-rated at 22/31/25 mpg (manual) or 22/30/25 mpg (automatic). All use regular gasoline.

Summary

The 2019 Jeep Compass is tuned for on-road comfort more than off-road capabilities. Engine power is moderate; we prefer the 6-speeds to the 9-speed automatic. Even base models are decently equipped, but active-safety features are limited to the options list.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
