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.
