2021 Jeep Compass

The 2021 Compass is Jeep's latest take on the small SUV format, slotting into their range between the subcompact Renegade and the best-selling Cherokee. But don't let its small size fool you: this is a car with a big personality and plenty of features packed into its compact frame.

What's New for 2021

The biggest change for the 2021 Compass is the upgraded driver assist features available across the various trims. New highlights include full-speed forward collision warnings with active braking, and rear parking sensors with automatic emergency stop.

Under the Hood: Balanced Power and Traction

As standard, the Compass comes with a meaty 2.4L 4-cylinder engine making a highly satisfactory 180 horsepower and 175lb-ft of torque, plenty enough output for a car of this size. The power is passed either through a six-speed automatic transmission to front-wheel drive, or through a nine-speed automatic to all-wheel drive. A highlight of the AWD drivetrain is the Selec-Terrain system which automatically balances power and traction to the four wheels individually, with selectable modes for snow, sand, mud, and more. The upshot is that the Compass handles very well across all conditions you're likely to meet.

Advanced Infotainment and Tech

Infotainment is a strong point of the 2021 Jeep Compass, with every model in the range boasting at least a 7" touchscreen, upgraded to 8.4" on higher trims. But whatever the screen size, the included Uconnect software is powerful and easy to use, offering fast access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and optional advanced navigation. Entry-level Compass trims have a standard six-speaker sound system, although audiophiles will likely want to move up to the stunning nine-speaker Alpine system instead.

In Safe Hands

Jeep is famous for the rugged safety of their SUVs, and the Compass doesn't disappoint in this area. The lineup of active safety systems has been updated for 2021, with the most impressive features now including: • Forward collision warnings and active braking, even at full speed. • Lane departure warnings and keep assist. • Blind spot monitoring plus rear cross-traffic alerts. • Rear parking assistance with emergency stop braking. • Auto-dimming rear mirror, and automatic high beam headlights. • Automatic rain-sensing windshield wipers.
