You get the lofty driving position 4x4 buyers expect and most things are where they should be, although it's disappointing that the steering column doesn't adjust for reach as well as move up and down. Visibility is obstructed by the screen pillars at junctions and roundabouts.
Jeep Compass space & practicality
If there's one thing Compass does particularly well, it's provide plenty of space for people and baggage. Head- and legroom are excellent and there's a big boot with a take-it-out-and-wipe-it-clean floor. The rear seats and front passenger seat fold flat for carrying oversize loads.
Jeep Compass equipment
There's only one trim level, and in typical Jeep fashion it delivers plenty of things that would be options with many rivals, such as leather upholstery, stability control, anti-roll-over protection, air-conditioning, 18-inch alloy wheels and a rechargeable torch in the boot. It makes the pricing seem especially generous.
