For drivers searching for an off-trail-conquering and rugged vehicle, without sacrificing a comfortable city commute, the 2020 Jeep Compass gets the job done admirably. This compact SUV delivers a dependable day-to-day drive, sound fuel economy, and an exceptional towing capacity. Starting at $26,400, the Compass is an affordable all-terrain ride.
Building off what consumers expect from Jeep, the Compass offers exquisite cabin comfort and a user-friendly infotainment system, equipped with a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, as well as Bluetooth connectivity. The Compass allows for seamless crossover between your daily drive, and those roads less travelled. The Compass doesn't just meet consumer expectations for the Jeep, it far exceeds them!
The Jeep Compass - Maintaining Jeep's Legacy
Jeep incorporates only minor changes for the 2020 model year, with a few features getting shuffled between different trim levels. Some of the changes include a Premium Lighting Group package, a new String Grey colour option, as well as the 7-inch touchscreen display being made standard on the Sport and Latitude models, while the Trailhawk model gets the 8.4-inch version. Otherwise, the Jeep Compass also gets two new Appearance packages; the first is an Upland Edition package for the Sport model that includes matte black tow hooks, a front suspension skid plate, all-weather mats, and 17-inch wheels. For Limited models, the High Altitude package adds 19-inch aluminum wheels, HID headlamps and LED taillamps, as well as a UConnect 4C NAV infotainment system with GPS navigation included.
What's Different from the 2019 Jeep Compass?
While no major overhauls were made since the 2018 version, the 2019 model continues the 2nd generation of the Compass lineup with minor feature shuffles across trim levels. The 2nd generation of Compass was designed with balance in mind, to perform equally well on city streets as it does on rugged terrain. The new face of the Compass mimics that of the larger Cherokee, while updated powertrains, active safety, and infotainment technologies also became available. Space-wise, the Compass sits in the middle between Jeep's smaller Renegade and the larger Cherokee. Adventure-seekers can opt for the Trailhawk model, which offers a simulated low-speed first gear for crawling, as well as a "Rock" setting for the terrain selection system in the Compass.
