The new Jeep Compass is sportier than ever. With sharp curves and aggressive design statements, it takes away a bit of the raw Jeep looks used to have when Compass was first introduced in 2007. Over the years it has been put forward to a large audience with varieties in its line-up. When it was introduced, it had an audience who loved to drive on unpaved roads with good mileage but with time it has garnered the attention of all non-enthusiasts as well. It is a vehicle that gives the best tech and luxury one can have in a Jeep SUV.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The new Compass prices are not officially declared yet, but we hope that the prices will not shoot up much considering it is a mid-cycle refresh. The Jeep Compass will continue with similar mechanical and will only undergo a cosmetic makeover for the 2022 model year. Thus the 2022 Compass will rival the likes of Hyundai Tucson, Toyota RAV4, and Mazda CX-30 when it is launched in the fall of 2021.

2022 Jeep Compass Features

The 2022 Jeep Compass is expected to retain its all six trims with a minor shuffling of features and few new features being added in the top trims. That said, the six trims that could be offered are Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Limited, 80th Anniversary Edition, and Trailhawk. The base trim would start at $26,000. Under the hood, it's the same story in all the trims and you will continue to get a 2.4-liter powertrain with a choice of either 4x2 or 4x4 configuration.

Speaking of the trims the base Sport trim will again be bare bones with lots of comforts features missing. As you go up the trim ladder the features added make it a much better equipped SUV. The 2022 Compass will also add a new 8.4-inch touchscreen and a bigger 10.1-inch touchscreen for higher trims both running on UConnect 5.

We Recommend

The Jeep Compass is best used for city, highway rides, and occasional off-road that's it, expecting anything more would mean asking too much for the price point. Thus we recommend going for the Altitude trim in 4x4 guise it gets a nifty list of features and going by the 2021 Compass Altitude trim’s price the 2022 Altitude trim would be in a ballpark price of $30,000. 

Price

The price for the new Jeep Compass has not been officially released by Jeep yet but it is expected to start at around $26,000.

Release Date

The 2022 Jeep Compass has been revealed recently and is expected to hit the market in fall 2021.

2022 Jeep Compass Engine and Performance

Performance and off-road ability are a legacy which is intact for ages with Jeep. The same will be the case with the 2022 Jeep Compass. The 2021 Compass is powered by a 2.4-liter-inline-4 engine that churns out 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. It also incorporates a new engine option, a 1.3L turbocharged petrol engine giving it one of the best performance figures. We expect to see the same engine options carried over to the 2022 Compass. Also, there are few rumors around a Compass 4xe Plug-in Hybrid model in the pipeline but we don’t have official confirmation for the same yet.

The Compass will be paired with a six-speed automatic or a nine-speed automatic depending on whether it is a 4x2 model or a 4x4. The nine-speed automatic transmission has been criticized heavily for its sluggish response and we have been assured that the nine-speed automatic offered on the 2022 Jeep Compass will put that to rest. The Jeep Compass will be able to do 0-60 mph in 9.3 seconds and the quarter-mile will come in 17.1 seconds. With this, it is the slowest in the segment while the Mazda CX-30 is quickest with 0-60 mph coming in 7.8 seconds and quarter-mile time stood at 16.0 seconds flat.

The ride and handling of the Jeep Compass is the one area only Mazda CX-302 can match. 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 as compared to the rivals. That said, the braking performance of the previous Compass has impressed us with a 60-0 mph stopping distance of under 140 feet and we expect with updated brakes this figure to get much better for the 2022 Compass.

As for the rivals, the Toyota RAV4 with 203 horses and 184 pound-feet of torque is the most powerful SUV here followed by the Mazda CX-30 with 186 horsepower and 186 p[ouind-feet of torque. The Hyundai Tucson beats the Jeep Compass with 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. Thus the Jeep Compass remains the least powerful SUV among all.

2022 Jeep Compass Fuel Economy

The Jeep Compass has never been known for outstanding fuel efficiency and the 2022 Compass won’t be any different. The carried-over powertrain means you could expect a fuel efficiency of 22/30/25 mpg in city/highway/combined respectively. With a mediocre 13.5-gallons fuel tank, a combined range of 330 plus miles can be eked out.

The rivals do much better and the Toyota RAV4 leads with 27/35/30 mpg fuel economy figures in city/highway/combined respectively. Next comes the Mazda CX-30 with 24/31/26 mpg of fuel economy followed by the Hyundai Tucson with 22/28/25 mpg of fuel efficiency.

2022 Jeep Compass Interior

The 2022 model takes it to the next level for the Compass. New materials, a large touchscreen, redesigned instrument cluster, and a driver display give it a premium stance in its segment. The leather upholstery adds to the comfort and the buttons around the driver are within reach making it a driver-focused vehicle.

The interior space is decent enough and the Jeep Compass will offer the best leg space in both rows compared to all the rivals. But the cargo capacity of 27.2 cubic feet is a bit on the downside when compared to other rivals in the segment. That said, the Toyota RAV4 comes with the biggest 37.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity followed by the Hyundai Tucson with 31 cubic feet of cargo.

2022 Jeep Compass Exterior

The 2022 Compass looks have been enhanced over its previous models making it sharper and bolder from the front and soothing at the rear with minor changes in tail light design. The new LED headlights and daytime running lights with a redesigned bumper give it an aggressive stance. The signature grille still makes its way to this model which looks great as well. The 80th Anniversary edition is now offered in two new color options Mimetic Green and Urban Green. Apart from this, it has 11 different color options which can be a difficult choice to make for the buyers.

2022 Jeep Compass Competition

2022 Jeep Compass vs 2021 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 Jeep Compass tries hard, when it stands with the Toyota RAV4 it looks nothing close to it.

2021 Toyota RAV4

2022 Jeep compass vs 2021 Mazda CX-30

The Mazda CX-30 is the curious choice in the segment the crossover SUV has loads of performance and better fuel economy compared to the Jeep Compass. The rear seats of the Mazda are cramped and it gets a smaller cargo too. The Jeep Compass on the other hand trumps the MX-30 in all sections except for performance and handling. So go for Jeep Compass if you can compromise with performance while the Mazda CX-30 if you can compromise on practicality.

2021 Mazda CX-30

2022 Jeep compass vs 2021 Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson is slightly bigger than the Jeep Compass but has almost similar interior space, performance, and fuel efficiency. But what it does not have is the off-road capability that the Jeep Compass has. That said, if you are looking for a comfortable family crossover SUV the Hyundai Tucson will ha[pen to be a better choice here.

2021 Hyundai Tucson

 

2022 Jeep Compass Final Verdict

The Jeep Compass has improved a lot over the years and the 2022 Compass is now a great overall package that offers a comfortable 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 better performance then look at the Mazda CX-30. 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 Jeep Compass.
