New for 2019

For 2019, the Compass adds adaptive cruise control as an option, introduces a premium lighting group, and a new wheel finish for the 17-inch Trailhawk wheels. Sport and Latitude models gain a standard 7.0-inch infotainment system. Limited and Trailhawk can be painted in a new Sting Grey color.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Jeep Compass slots between the smaller Renegade and the larger Cherokee in Jeep's lineup.

2019 Compass Sport: The base model offers 16-inch steel wheels, automatic climate control, heated exterior power mirrors, a 115-volt power outlet, and a 7.0-inch infotainment system with six-speakers.

2019 Compass Latitude: Opt for Latitude and receive 17-inch aluminum wheels, an upgraded center console with rear-seat air vents, automatic headlights, leather-wrapped shift knob, hands-free keyless access, and ambient LED interior lighting.

2019 Compass Trailhawk: The off-road version of the Compass comes standard with a more advanced all-wheel-drive system, leather-trimmed seating, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with SiriusXM radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, red interior stitching accents, all-season floormats, and rear tow hooks.

2019 Compass Limited: The luxury trim level features 18-inch aluminum wheels, perforated leather seating, heated front seats and steering wheel, 8-way power driver's seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 7.0-inch color driver's information display, and remote start. A High Altitude package adds 19-inch aluminum wheels, satellite navigation, HID headlights and LED taillights.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Every 2019 Jeep Compass is powered by a 2.4-liter I-4 delivering 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft. Sport models come standard with a six-speed manual transmission and are available with either front- or all-wheel drive. All other trims come standard with a six-speed automatic in front-wheel-drive trim. All-wheel drive models are mated to a nine-speed automatic.

On the road, the six-speed manual in front-drive guise nets 23/32 mpg city/highway, while the all-wheel drive returns 22/31 mpg. Front-drive automatics score 22/31 mpg, and all-wheel-drive automatics return 22/30 mpg.

Safety

The 2019 Jeep Compass was rated Good by the IIHS in six crash tests, though its headlights received Poor and Marginal ratings depending on trim. However, the Compass fared well in front crash prevention, earning a Superior rating, fully avoiding both low- and high-speed collisions in the autobrake tests. In NHTSA crash testing, the 2019 Compass received a four-star overall rating (out of a possible five).

Blind-spot monitoring is available as an option or part of the Safety and Security package. Latitude models and up offer an Advanced Safety package, which includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, and lane departure warning.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The 2019 Jeep Compass offers 27.2 cubic feet with the rear seats up, which increases to 59.8 cubic feet with the seats folded down. The Compass has seating capacity for five, with front/rear legroom at 41.8/38.3 inches, respectively.

Technology

Standard in the 2019 Jeep compass is a 7.0-inch Uconnect touchscreen system, a six-speaker audio system, SiriusXM radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity. Optional on the Latitude and standard on higher trim models is an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen system with satellite navigation. A separate option is a nine-speaker BeatsAudio system featuring two subwoofers.

What We Think

In a recent comparison test, we said that the Compass "feels like an old-school body-on-frame SUV—and that's a good thing." Impressive off-road chops allowed the Compass to live up to the Jeep name. Its demeanor "possesses a sense of playfulness and character," but that's where the fun stopped. "Despite having the largest and most powerful engine of our trio, performance is middling," we lamented.

These sentiments were echoed during 2018 SUV of the Year testing, where "every judge complained about the slow, hesitant acceleration." Judges also took issue with the "lackluster build quality, such as the yawning panel gaps and cheap interior plastics." We concluded our critique by saying, "The Compass looks attractive and is capable on the sand, but its poor powertrain and lack of refinement kept it from gaining entrance into the finalist round."
