2013 Jeep Compass Overview

One of the two crossovers in Jeep’s lineup, the 2013 Jeep Compass is one of the more docile vehicles Jeep makes, just at home on the street as it is off-road.

Outside, the Compass looks like a miniaturized version of the larger Grand Cherokee with sleek lines seem modern headlamps. The Compass also gets a new iteration of Jeep’s classic seven-line front grille. Sixteen-inch alloy wheels are standard on the 2013 Compass, but 18-inchers are optional on higher trims. Other exterior options include chrome roof racks, certain body-colored trim pieces, and a sunroof.

Jeep has stepped up when it comes to the interior quality of its vehicles and the 2013 Compass is further evidence of this with good fit and finish and greater use of soft-touch materials. The 2013 Compass comes standard with cloth seats, but leather is available. All Compasses get air conditioning, an audio system w/ MP3 connectivity, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, and 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Options are extensive and include a premium sound system, navigation system, and power-adjustable heated seats.

The 2013 Jeep Compass is available with two engines, the base engine being a 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 141 pounds-feet of torque. The more powerful option is a 172-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 165 pounds-feet of torque. Both are available with a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT. The Compass comes with standard front-wheel drive, but can also be a formidable off-roader with two optional four-wheel drive systems. That’s right, even though the Compass is a crossover it can still come as a trail-rated off-roader.

The Compass gets decent fuel economy; depending on the engine/drivetrain combination the Compass will get anywhere between 20-23 mpg in the city and 23-30 mpg on the highway.

The 2013 Jeep Compass gets several standard safety features. Four airbags, antilock disc brakes, traction control, a steel roll cage, and active roll avoidance are all standard. Hill-descent assist is optional which helps keep the car in control on steep grades. While the 2013 Compass has not been crash tested, its cousin, the Patriot, receives good marks from the IIHS.
