Largely unchanged for 2013, the Jeep Compass is a compact crossover SUV available in FWD or 4WD. The Compass is available with two different engines; a standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 158 hp/141 lb-ft of torque and an optional 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that produces 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. Transmission options consist of a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic. Fuel mileage falls within an EPA estimated range of 20 mpg city to 29 mpg highway. Features include 17-inch wheels, halogen headlamps, heated seats, leather trim, touchscreen navigation, liftgate speakers, premium sound, and fold-flat seating. Safety is advanced airbags, comprised of electronic stability control (ESC), electronic roll mitigation, anti-lock braking (ABS), emergency braking assist (BA), traction control (TCS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), and tire pressure monitoring (TPMS). The Compass is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
For 2013, Jeep Compass models with the 2.0L engine and manual transmission get slightly higher EPA highway ratings--now 30 mpg. Otherwise this model line is carried over from 2012 unchanged, although Winter Chill Pearl Coat and Black Forest Green Pearl Coast have been added to the palette of exterior colors.
Versatile layout for people and gear; maneuverability and parking ease; some innovative features; serious off-road ability in an affordable, compact package
Along with the closely related Jeep Patriot, the Jeep Compass is one of the lowest-priced off-road capable utility vehicles on the market when you get it with the optional Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package, yet it packs that in a vehicle that rides and handles for the most part like a car. Ease of parking and maneuverability are strengths for this model, and it's reasonably fuel-efficient. And it can tow up to 2,000 pounds--enough for a couple of jet-skis. Otherwise, the Compass continues to offer some innovative features that aren't found everywhere else, like the optional sound system with liftgate speakers--good for a tailgate party--or the rechargeable flashlight built into the rear cargo area.
