The 2011 redesign has made the Jeep Compass a much more rounded and complete package as it has managed to address most of the gripes that everyone had with the older generation model. The new Grand Cherokee-style front end, premium cabin materials, more off-road capabilities, solid fuel efficiency, all make the 2011 Compass a solid offering in this segment. Although refinement and acceleration performance still needs improvement and the cargo space is still poor as compared to the competitors, the growth is expansive.
Apart from the new exterior design and premium cabin materials, Jeep has also added a new optional Off-road package with low-range gearing, increased ride height, all-terrain tires, and skid plates to make the 2011 Compass a lot more exciting and a tough competitor in the compact SUV segment. With the prices still starting at a lowly $20,045 it very well undercuts the rivals like the Ford Escape, Mazda CX-3, Nissan Rogue, and Toyota RAV4.
