2019 Jeep Compass Review

The carefully designed 2019 Jeep Compass is meant for both city streets and off-roading adventures. Explore Watkins Glen and Ithaca behind the wheel of this latest sporty offering from the Jeep family.

You'll find the 2019 Compass here at Maguire Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Watkins Glen. Learn about this vehicle's interior features, tech offerings, and Elmira and Corning off-roading capability in this review, and get a feel for what it's like to be behind the wheel of a Jeep.

Inside the Jeep Compass

The intuitive Compass has space for up to five people, with abundant legroom for both adults and kids in the front and back of the vehicle. The heated driver and front passenger seats are an available feature, which keep you warm when the temperatures begin to drop. The available heated steering wheel gives you a better grip on things, warming your hands up when it's cold out.

The ParkView® backup camera lets you see what's happening behind the Compass when the car is in reverse. You'll have on-screen gridlines show up on the touchscreen, which can guide you through the narrowest of spaces.

If you have hiking gear, luggage, or groceries to load in, use the standard 60/40 rear seats to your advantage. These can be folded down for maximum cargo space. Have passengers with you? Leave one seat up and still have plenty of space for other items.

Jeep Off-Roading

Being able to take a Jeep off the pavement often excites a driver. Whatever the terrain ahead may be, you'll be confident when driving the Compass. The 2.4-liter engine found in the base edition of the Compass offers efficiency, performance and up to 180 horsepower.

When heading off the pavement, the Jeep Compass has a pair of 4x4 systems, including Jeep Active Drive and Active Drive Low with Trail Rated® power.

When pairing the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System with the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 System, you'll be able to take on the toughest of terrain. Handle snow, sand, and mud, and even rock, on off-roading adventures. The Trail Rated® Compass features high air intakes and water sealing, to help with traversing water when going off-roading.

Compass Tech Features

Stay connected wherever you go, with the standard infotainment setup, the Uconnect® system. You'll have control over infotainment, communication, and the available navigation functionality. The standard 7-inch touchscreen is intuitive (and new for 2019), replacing the 5-inch standard option in previous years.

Wireless Bluetooth® also comes standard. Make a hands-free phone call or play music from your phone. The available 8.4-inch screen offers support for Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ so you can hook up a smartphone to the touchscreen area. With the 7-inch driver information digital display, vehicle information and data is displayed in an easy-to-read format right in front of you.
