All-New 2022 Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass is perhaps the most versatile all-rounder in the company's extensive lineup of models. Taking plenty of the rugged off-road qualities of the Wrangler and melding them to the comforts of the Grand Cherokee, the Compass is a compact SUV that provides the best of all worlds. The latest 2022 Jeep Compass is now available at Downsview Chrysler, and here are the qualities you can enjoy with a test drive.

Exterior and Styling

The Compass is one of the most conventionally attractive SUVs in the current Jeep range, taking a much more traditionally curved and moulded approach than boxy siblings such as the Wrangler or Renegade. But nonetheless, the Compass shows its Jeep heritage with the trademark seven-piece front grille, along with the confident lines and substantial wheel arches that provide a sturdy take on the compact profile.

Power Under the Hood

All models of the 2022 Jeep Compass are powered by the same 2.4L four-cylinder gas engine which pushes out a forceful 180 horsepower and 175lb-ft of torque. There are two choices available to complete the drivetrain. If you want front-wheel drive, you can have it paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. But for off-road or winter driving, choosing the all-wheel drive provides much better traction and also upgrades the transmission to a nine-speed automatic design.

Selec-Terrain Driving Modes

The all-wheel drive versions of the 2022 Compass are also supplied with the excellent Jeep Selec-Terrain system which optimizes torque and power to each individual wheel, with selectable drive modes providing enhanced grip across mud, snow, sand, and more.

Frugal Fuel Consumption

But even considering the high amount of power lurking under the hood, the 2022 Compass delivers some attractive fuel economy figures, with a highway rating of just 7.6L / 100km, and a combined figure of 9.4L / 100km maintaining the standard.

Infotainment Technology and Interior

Even at the entry level, the Compass's infotainment tech is generously provided for with an 8.4" touchscreen display as standard, upgradeable to a huge 10.1" option. Wireless smartphone integration is easy via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the optional navigation is fitted with natural voice recognition software for conversational hands-free control.

But the upgraded interior isn't just about advanced tech, with all-new textured fabric or leather upholstery, genuine wood trims, and a redesigned dash creating a genuinely upscale feel.

Active Safety and Driver Assist Technology

Lastly, Jeep is well regarded for the large amount of active safety tech they include with their modern vehicles, and the Compass is no exception to the rule. Key standard and available highlights include:

- Forward collision warnings and full speed automatic emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings and lane keep assist.
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Parallel and perpendicular parking assist.
- 360-degree camera system.
