Jeep has refreshed the 2022 Compass with the much-needed updates, featuring enhanced exterior and interior styling, and a new trim level called Latitude Lux. The price details have been released and it starts from $24,995. The Compass continues to get its power from the 177-hp 2.0L inline-4 engine that delivers mediocre on-road performance but excellent off-road performance.

The restyled Compass's cabin has many modern design elements and is pleasant to watch. It also gets an all-new 10.1-inch touchscreen that now features wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. However, many advanced safety technologies are available as options. The Compass gets its rivalry from the likes of the Mazda CX-5, the Toyota RAV4, and the Hyundai Tucson

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Jeep has done a noble job upgrading a clearly aging crossover- Carbuzz

The Jeep Compass, unlike most compact SUVs, is better on off-road skills. The revised exterior styling and redesigned interior aim to keep the Compass alive in the much-competitive compact SUV segment. Jeep also adds more technological features to keep up with the latest trend. However, its sluggish powertrain and below-average cargo capacity keep this SUV outside the radar of buyers. 

The Compass isn't a high maintenance vehicle and its running costs are almost on par with its rivals. The annual cost is estimated to be nearly $6,900 for its repair, fuel, depreciation, maintenance, etc. Leasing for the 2022 Compass starts from $299 per month for a term of 42 months with $3,799 due at the time of signing. If yo want to purchase, you could finance it at a 3.9% APR rate for 72 months.

Buying Advice

We would recommend the best value Latitude trim as it opens to several optional packages. This trim adds 17-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, proximity keyless entry, and satellite radio. Add the $1,495 Driver Assistance Group for more safety features. We also suggest buying the Convenience package for $1,800.

Engine and Performance
7.5/10

If there’s a reason to think twice about the Compass, it’s the engine- Autotrader

A 2.4L four-cylinder continues to be the only available engine on the Jeep Compass. This engine makes 177 hp and 172 lb-ft. of torque and uses a 6-speed automatic transmission with FWD and a 9-speed automatic with 4WD. The power delivery isn't that refined while both the gearboxes are criticized for their sluggish response. 

2022 Jeep Compass engine

The planted ride and well-weighted steering make the Compass a good mile-muncher but its larger turning radius makes it a bit difficult to maneuver in tight spaces. The suspension setup is fantastic and this SUV feels sure-footed on the tarmac. When it comes to handling, the Compass suffers from heavy body roll around corners. 

2022 Jeep Compass front driving view

The Compass feels lazy in terms of acceleration. It does a 0-60 MPH sprint in 9.3 seconds, which is the slowest in the segment. It further completes the quarter-mile run in 17.1 seconds and tops at 117 MPH. The Compass also disappoints with its poor braking performance. In the brake test, it took 134 feet to come to a smooth stop from 60 MPH.

*2021MY data used for reference

The Toyota RAV4 takes a shorter time to reach 60 MPH than its rivals, courtesy of its powerful engine. Both the Mazda CX-5 and the Hyundai Tucson are equally powerful but the former comes standard with an AWD system. The Compass is the slowest contender here and is clearly not a choice for those who prefer decent acceleration. 

Fuel Economy
7.0/10

The Compass is about as efficient as most competitors- CarAndDriver

The fuel economy of the Jeep Compass will not wow you but it is decent. According to the EPA, it will return 22 MPG in the city, 31 MPG on a highway, and 25 MPG combined. Adding the 4WD system will not impact gas mileage, which is a good thing. No matter which gearbox you choose, the fuel economy remains the same. 

2022 Jeep Compass front view

These MPG figures don't stand out in the crowd but the Compass is reasonably efficient. A mediocre 13.5-gallon fuel tank is fitted in the Compass and at its full capacity, it can travel up to 337 miles, which is not that impressive. In the compact SUV segment, there are many competitors with a much better range than the Compass.

Clearly, the Toyota RAV4 has the best fuel estimates in this competition despite making more power. It is closely followed by the Hyundai Tucson. Coming standard with an AWD system, the fuel efficiency of the Maxda CX-30 is also debatable. Compared to it, the Compass's fuel efficiency is slightly less. 

Interior
8.0/10

Inside, the Compass is agreeable and well equipped, especially its user-friendly technology- Autotrader

The real changes come inside as the 2022 Jeep Compass's interior is all-new.  It has a much-improved interior and more features than the outgoing model. There is a definite upgrade in material quality. The first thing you'll notice inside is an entirely new dashboard design that looks modern. The center console has also been restyled to add that premium look. Both cloth and leather upholsteries are available depending on the trim level. 

2022 Jeep Compass dashboard

Speaking of front-seat comfort, the seat cushions are on the firm side but they provide decent comfort. Higher trims also add power-adjustable front seats with heated functionality. The interior space in the Compass is decent. Although the rear headroom is less than its rivals dimension-wise, it is adequate. The optional panoramic sunroof will be a problem for six-footers as it eats up some headroom. 

2022 Jeep Compass infotainment system

Another big change is on the tech side. The Compass now gets an all-new 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment system as standard from the Latitude Lux trim onwards. The standard display measures 8.4 inches and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The latest interface is fluidic in operation and the graphics quality is really cool. All the physical controls are within the driver's reach, which makes it a driver-focused vehicle.

The Compass's practicality factor is not that great. It offers a cargo capacity of 27.2 cu-ft., which is a bit on the downside when compared to its rivals. Folding the rear seats expands the cargo space to 59.8 cu-ft. You can stack up to four large suitcases for a small trip. You also get a fair amount of interior storage to store all your small important items. Some main interior features are:

  • Heated, leather steering wheel 
  • Cloth & leather upholstery 
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Remote engine start
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Proximity keyless entry
  • Panoramic sunroof

Exterior
8.0/10

Jeep tweaked the Compass exterior for 2022, but it isn’t as substantial of a change as the interior- Kelly Blue Book

The 2022 Jeep Compass has seen a bit of an exterior makeover. It has a restyled front end with a slightly smaller grille and slimmer LED headlights. In the middle of the fascia, you get a new design element that gives a meaner and aggressive look. The signature seven-slate grille looks great as well. It has new halogen fog lamps, and the lower grille has increased in size to improve engine cooling.

2022 Jeep Compass side angle view

The Compass also gets new wheel designs for wheels measuring up to 18 inches in diameter. At the back, the LED taillights have been slightly revised and it also gets a two-tone contrasting roof. The optional Altitude package adds black exterior accents for a rugged look. Most models have a ground clearance of 7.7 inches whereas the Trailhawk trim sits high at 8.7 inches, owing to its off-road capability.

The Hyundai Tucson has the widest wheelbase here and hence, it has the most spacious rear row in this competition. The Mazda CX-5 weighs nearly 500 pounds more than the Compass and yet, it boasts better handling characteristics. The high ground clearance of the Toyota RAV4 can be an issue for some people while getting in and out of the vehicle. Some main exterior features are:

  • LED headlamps
  • LED DRLs
  • Cornering fog lamps
  • Heated exterior mirrors
  • Black grille with chrome accents
  • Chrome headlamp bezels
  • Chrome window trim

Safety
8.0/10

Jeep offers an impressive array of driver-assistance technology on the Compass- CarAndDriver

The safety ratings of the 2022 Jeep Compass aren’t available yet so we will refer to the 2021 model as there are no structural changes. NHTSA has given an average of four out of five stars while IIHS rated ‘Good’ in all crash tests. The front crash prevention was given a 'Superior' rating while the headlights were rated 'Marginal'. 

2022 Jeep Compass IIHS crash test

The only standard safety feature is a rearview camera, which is a big let-down compared to its rivals. The rest of the driver aids are available under different optional packages such as Lux Driver Assist, Driver Assistance Group, and Driver Assist Group 1. The standard seven airbags also play their role during a crash. Some safety features include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Post-collision safety system
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • 360-view camera
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keep assist
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Hill descent control
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers

2022 Jeep Compass vs 2022 Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 is king in all terms. It has a world-acclaimed design, sporty engine, best mileage, and much more which can never be underestimated no matter what. Its value for money proposition is unmatchable in the segment. Although the redesigned Compass improves a lot, the RAV4 is an all-around package that delivers better value and reliability but it retails more than the Compass. 

2022 Toyota RAV4

2022 Jeep Compass vs 2022 Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 is the curious choice in the segment as the SUV excels in almost all aspects. It offers engaging handling and better fuel economy as compared to the Compass. It is also available with a turbocharged engine for better performance.  Inside, the materials used in the CX-5 are way better than the Compass and it also trumps in terms of cargo space. The CX-5 also offers a long list of standard driver aids. 

2022 Mazda CX-5

2022 Jeep Compass vs 2022 Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson has been fully redesigned for 2022 compared to the Compass's facelift. The engine in the Tucson doesn't;t feel weak and offers a composed ride and handling. However, the Compass has an edge in terms of off-road capability, The Tucson's cabin feels premium while its cargo space is one of the largest in the segment. It also comes with a wide array of top safety technologies. 

2022 Hyundai Tucson
Final Verdict

The Jeep Compass has improved a lot over the years and the revamped 2022 Compass is now a great overall package that offers a comfortable and modern interior, aggressive design, advanced technology, and is efficient too. But if one expects more from the segment and wants a better value-for-money vehicle, then you can check out the Hyundai Tucson and the Toyota RAV4. If you want a better driving experience then look at the Mazda CX-5. That said, if you have the occasional weekend off-roading bug then none of the three would hold a candle in front of the properly equipped Compass.

Not the largest but is fun to drive

Pros - Build quality, Design, Drive dynamics.

Cons - Rear legroom.

Build with precision. What I love about the Compass is the fact that the cabin on this car looks much superior to the alternatives that I had checked and the fit and finish feel very snug. Also, the design feels modern yet iconic and original to the brand. Driving the Compass is pure joy too as the SUV feels agile and fun to drive but the rear passengers find the legroom to be pretty tight. ...

Underpowered compact SUV with poor ride quality. I am completely dissatisfied with my decision to purchase the Jeep Compass. Its exterior style, elegant interior, and comfy seating area first wowed me. But I didn't test drive the car much before deciding to buy it, and that was perhaps my worst mistake.
