2011 Jeep Compass.jpg

Jeep Compass (MK49). 2007 to date (prod. over 92,473 sold to end of 2010). 5-door SUV. F/F, F/A, 1998, 2359 cm³ petrol (I4 DOHC). Sister car to Jeep Patriot, taking the Jeep brand one step further in to passenger-car territory. Essentially an urban runabout with off-road pretensions, with Jeep targeting small crossover and first-time buyers. Quieter than Patriot, thanks to less boxy shape, and ride slightly better as well. Coarse four-cylinder engines. Cabin materials a small improvement on sister car, though dynamically, Compass finds itself in the middle of the pack. Still very roomy, but not a patch on other soft-roaders such as Toyota RAV4 (XA30). Facelift for 2011.

Manufacturing location: Belvidere, Illinois, USA

Marque: Jeep
