2014 Jeep Compass


A five-passenger small crossover SUV, the 2014 Jeep Compass is available in three trim levels: Sport, Latitude and Limited.

Standard features for the Sport include 16-inch alloy wheels (17-inch wheels if optioned with the larger 2.4-liter engine), foglights, roof rails, air-conditioning, cruise control, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, a tilt-only steering wheel, a 115-volt household power outlet and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. The optional Power Value Group adds full power accessories, heated mirrors, keyless entry and additional body-color exterior pieces.

The Latitude gets the above features as standard and adds chrome exterior and interior trim, mesh cloth seat upholstery, a height-adjustable driver seat, a fold-flat front passenger seat, heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.

The range-topping Limited includes 18-inch wheels, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a power driver seat with lumbar adjustments, a driver information display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a rearview camera, a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, 28GB of digital music storage and satellite radio.

The Freedom Drive II Off-Road group can be added to all four-wheel-drive trims. It includes 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, tow hooks, an off-road driving mode, an engine oil cooler, underbody skid plates, a full-size spare tire, hill-descent control, hill-start assist and a height-adjustable driver seat for the Sport trim.

The Latitude and Limited trims are eligible for the Security and Cargo Convenience group. On the Latitude this adds the auto-dimming rearview mirror, a security alarm and the driver information display. The Limited's version of this option group also includes remote start, an audio system USB port and Bluetooth. Jeep also offers Bluetooth and the USB port bundled as a separate option for all trim levels.

Also offered on the top trims is the Sun and Sound group (a sunroof, an upgraded nine-speaker Boston Acoustics sound system, two flip-down tailgate speakers and satellite radio for the Latitude trim) and the Trailer Tow Prep group (oil cooler, trailer tow wiring harness and full-size spare). A navigation system is available only on the Limited trim.

In front-wheel-drive Sport and Latitude trims, the 2014 Jeep Compass is outfitted with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque. Optional on the front-wheel-drive Sport and Latitude is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on all-wheel-drive models and all Compass Limited models.

A five-speed manual transmission is standard for the Sport, while the Latitude and Limited receive a new six-speed automatic as standard. The EPA estimates fuel economy for the 2.0-liter engine with front-wheel drive and the automatic to be 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined. Sticking with the manual boosts these numbers a bit to 23/30/26.

The front-drive Compass with the 2.4-liter engine and automatic is no different from the 2.0 at 21/28/24 mpg. But again, there's a slight boost for the manual here, and it rises to 23/28/25. With four-wheel drive and the 2.4, you're looking at 21/27/23 with the automatic and 23/28/25 with the manual.

The optional Freedom Drive II Group provides a more serious 4WD system with low-range gearing and hill-descent control, but requires that you also select the available 2.4-liter engine and CVT.

Standard safety features for all 2014 Jeep Compass models include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags and side curtain airbags. A rearview camera is included with the Limited trim and available on others. The Freedom Drive II Off-Road group adds hill-descent and hill-start control.

In Edmunds brake testing, a 4WD Compass Limited came to a stop from 60 mph in 120 feet, which is slightly better than average for this class of vehicle.
