Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Compass is priced towards the upper reaches of the class, while the Trailhawk versions are simply too expensive to recommend. Running costs will be comparative to the reasonable Renegade, although being bigger and heavier means the Compass is less efficient.

Resale values have yet to be released for the Compass. However, Jeep has a strong reputation for this, so the Compass is likely to hold onto its value well and possibly better than rivals.

Overview

The Jeep Compass has impressive off-road credentials, but its poor road manners and noisy engines mean it's ultimately off the pace

  • Good off-road ability
  • Reasonably spacious interior
  • Terrible engine refinement
  • Small boot for its class
