Explore and conquer the urban jungle with the 2020 Jeep Compass

October 20, 2020

A few months back, Auto Nation Group (ANG), which handles Jeep Philippines, unleashed a 2-hit combo of model launches fit for exploring the ins and outs of the city. These are the Jeep Renegade subcompact SUV and the Jeep Compass. While the former gives a retro-inspired aesthetics nod to the brand’s off-road legends like the Rubicon, the latter is fashioned toward those who’ve cracked the code for work-life balance, and would prefer a sleeker ride with simplicity in mind.

Spotlighting the Compass, this stylish small crossover is akin to the legendary Jeep Cherokee, but is a tad smaller. As such, it also boasts the Cherokee’s masculine aura, yet still presents a unique style of its own – well rounded, sleek, and fits well in and around the metro’s busy thoroughfares.

On the outside

Heading the way of the Jeep Compass is the brand’s trademark 7-slot grille design. This is flanked by a pair of sleek headlights with daytime running lights for an all-day/all-night clear view of the road ahead.

Front-end styling is completed by a stylish bumper with integrated fog light housing, rounded off with a black-out chin. Modernized to resemble that of the latest Cherokee, the Compass moves forward and flaunts an aura that speaks, “Hey, it’s a wild world here in the city, but we got this. Let’s go.”

On the side, it’s got silver aluminum wheels with all-season tires that compliment its bold silhouette. The rear is emphasized by its LED tail lamps which brings out its athletic design. The Compass surely features many iconic Jeep styling cues that give it an unmistakable look, which fits nicely within the Jeep line-up.

The inside vibe

An environment of cloth and vinyl wrapped seats greet the occupants. They’re then entertained by a cutting-edge 7-inch touch screen infotainment system, connected to 6 speakers. Best part is that the said head unit is powered by UConnect 4 system with Apple Carplay – providing seamless experience and making navigation a breeze.

With the integrated voice command, just say the destination and boom - you’re off to it with a detailed route! Never again get lost following your route by seeing it front and center. For those who can’t travel without their smart devices, the system also supports Bluetooth connectivity, and is also equipped with USB port and a 12-volt power socket to charge mobile devices on the go.

Based on the supplied photos by Jeep Philippines and personal test drive accounts by some in our team, the Jeep Compass’ cabin is commendable for what it’s worth. Built quality, as well as fit and finish are notable, just as expected from a brand that takes pride in its superb vehicle craftsmanship and style.

Although, it can be said that the general vibe of the interior leaves room for a few more improvements – not drastic, not dramatic, but a few retouches, nips, and tucks to make it look more “premium in the eyes of the beholder”, so to speak. Good thing all these are illuminated by a dual-pane panoramic sun roof which not only provides ample lighting, but also envelops the interior with a sense of spaciousness.

Suite of safety with a class of convenience

As a vehicle that’s more than capable of tackling adventures in, out, and around the metro, the Jeep Compass boasts an array of passenger and pedestrian safety goodies. These include “LATCH child-seat anchor system for securing the little one’s own protective seat, next-gen front air bags for cushioning front occupants in case of head-on impact, motorized pre-tensioned seatbelts to keep occupants planted on the seats in case of sudden stoppage, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls so the driver can keep both eyes on the road while setting the mood for a more spirited journey.

Aside from these, the Jeep Compass also comes with an all-speed traction control system and electronic stability control. These, plus the user comfort offered by the electric power steering system enables the driver to be in control of the Compass in varied road conditions. This is complemented by an anti-lock braking system for maximum power and vehicle control under heavy braking, as well as an electronic roll mitigating system to re-stabilize the Compass in case the rear end bottoms out in slippery road conditions.

And there’s one more party trick the Jeep Compass has in store for safety. To those who have trailers for camping or hauling, the Compass comes with trailer sway damping to keep the extra rolling storage stable at speed and while navigating turns.

And yes, for a more relaxed driving experience, the Jeep Compass has ParkView Rear back-up camera and ParkSense Rear Park Assist system so placing it on a tight parking space will never be a hassle.

Despite these minor points, we are pleased with how the Jeep Compass performs on the move, and we’re hoping that the next evolution of this would bring more smiles when pushed to full pelt.
