Interior Possibilities

Think possibilities when you think of the Compass cabin. It seats five and provides you with available heated and ventilated front seats, good for the four seasons. In the winter, you’ll appreciate the optional heated steering wheel, while in the summer you’ll be able to set the temperature to your liking with the Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control.

Other desirable available perks include a dual-pane panoramic sunroof and leather-trimmed seating and steering wheel to match. In front, the driver’s seat can be upgraded to the power 8-way version.

Inside, you’ll receive the dimensions listed in the chart below:

Dimensions Front Rear
Headroom 39.2 inches 38.5 inches
Hip Room 54.1 inches 49.2 inches
Legroom 41.8 inches 38.3 inches
Shoulder Room 56.7 inches 55.1 inches


When you open the available power liftgate, it provides you with 27.2 cubic feet to stow your groceries or any sports or camping equipment. When you need more space to bring along extra gear, fold down the rear seats to enjoy a maximum of 59.8 cubic feet.

Enjoy the Technology

Enjoy the connectivity you get by bringing your smartphone aboard your Compass and hooking it up through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. This enables you to use your apps, make phone calls, and access your music library or audiobooks. You can hear music or said book on the upgraded nine-speaker Alpine® Premium Audio System.

If you need to refresh the route you planned to another one, make the change on the available Uconnect® 4C NAV 8.4-inch touchscreen display. It comes with pinch-to-zoom technology to get to the hard-to-find road you want. With the optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, you can accommodate eight devices in total to use when in the Compass.

Start with Safety

From the start, you’ll be able to see out of the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera. When you add Rear Cross Path Detection and ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System, you’ll want to test out your skills everywhere. If you’re approaching a potential mishap ahead, the available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking steps in and applies the brakes if necessary.

To keep you from straying from your established lane, let the optional LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist take over. Manage the traffic in other ways by using the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go.

Compass Performance

With a standard 6-speed automatic transmission and FWD, the Compass 2.4L Tigershark® engine produces 177 horsepower with 172 lb-ft of torque. If you choose available 4×4 capability, the Selec-Terrain® Management System includes four modes: Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud to adjust your Jeep’s performance.

The Jeep Compass also achieves an EPA-estimated 22 city/31 highway MPG for fewer trips to the pump. It can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped, so you can attach a trailer or jet skis to the back.
