While we hold the 2018 Jeep Compass in high regard, its deliverance of performance is average for the class. Competing within the same class are the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2018 GMC Acadia, and the 2018 GMC Terrain.

Although it falls behind by just 5.15 seconds in a 0-60 run, the 2018 Jeep Compass fails to solidify its name as the best in the class as far as acceleration is concerned. The quarter-mile run times show us nothing different, with the 2018 Jeep Compass falling 4.6 seconds behind the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Performance of the 2018 Jeep Compass during the emergency braking test was subpar for the class. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee carries the best braking performance for the class with 108 feet, that is 144 feet better than the 2018 Jeep Compass.
