The Jeep Compass (2012) is a compact SUV that was first introduced in 2007. It is the brand's entry-level model, positioned below the larger and more rugged Jeep Cherokee. The Compass was designed to appeal to urban dwellers who needed a practical vehicle for daily commuting, as well as occasional off-road capabilities. The 2012 Compass offered seating for five passengers and a decent amount of cargo space. Its exterior design featured the signature seven-slot grille and a boxy shape, giving it a traditional Jeep look. However, some critics felt that the styling was somewhat uninspiring compared to other vehicles in its class. Under the hood, the 2012 Compass was equipped with a range of engines, including a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Transmission options included a five-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). In terms of performance, the Compass offered adequate power for daily driving, but it was not particularly known for its acceleration or handling. Fuel efficiency varied depending on the engine and transmission choice, with some models achieving around 23-29 mpg on the highway. The Compass was available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, with the latter offering better off-road capability. While it may not have been as capable as the larger Jeep models, the Compass still offered decent ground clearance and off-road features such as hill descent control and a traction control system. Inside the cabin, the Compass provided a functional and comfortable environment. The material quality was generally considered to be average, without any luxury or high-end features. Standard equipment included air conditioning, an audio system, and power windows and locks. Overall, the Jeep Compass (2012) was a practical and affordable compact SUV with some off-road ability. It may not have been the most exciting or luxurious car in its class, but it provided a solid option for buyers looking for a versatile and capable vehicle.
