The all-new 2020 Jeep Compass is coming to the markets with minor upgrades and with more standard equipment. This compact SUV will slot between the Jeep Renegade and Jeep Cherokee models. However, Compass is behind those two models when it comes to power. On the other hand, Compass offers more power than its competitors such as Nissan Rogue or Hyundai Tucson.
The exterior design is modern and beautiful and the interior offers great comfort. The ride feels smooth and the cabin is quiet. Furthermore, the 2020 Jeep Compass is a solid off-roader that is easy to maneuver. The price is affordable and there will be plenty of options to make this SUV more premium.
2020 Jeep Compass takes some cues from the Grand Cherokee SUV
Speaking of exterior design, the 2020 Jeep Compass will borrow plenty of styling cues from the Grand Cherokee SUV. Both of the models are featuring a nice and modern design but the Compass comes with lower ground clearance. The base model looks gorgeous, but if you want more premium appeal with sportier and more aggressive design, you’ll have to opt for upper trims.
With that in mind, this compact SUV comes with a Limited trim level which adds more chrome materials and sportier wheels. A 2-tone roof looks magnificent and this feature is optional. Jeep also says there will be a couple of surprises for the customers, but we don’t know what it is.
2020 Jeep Compass interior design
The upcoming 2020 Jeep Compass comes with a very modern and comfortable interior. The design is brilliant and the room inside the cabin is ample for the compact segment. There is room for five persons and the buttons layout is perfect. Literally, all of the controls are within the driver’s reach and are easy to use. Even the touchscreen offers a user-friendly interface with simple menus. We like large air vents around the dash and the new infotainment screen.
Uconnect system is up to date and it responds much quicker than before. Furthermore, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are in the offer. A 6-speaker audio system is standard, along with the push button start and keyless entry. Rearview camera will be standard too, even on the base model. On the other side, higher trim levels are offering more premium amenities such as ambient lighting.
2020 Jeep Compass offers a spacious cabin
The rear seats are offering 38.3 inches of legroom and cargo area is rated at 27 cubic feet. Folding the rear seats flat opens up to 60 cubic feet of space.

A 6-speed automatic gearbox is standard but the customers can choose the optional 9-speed automatic. Fuel economy delivers good numbers, 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
Thanks to this engine, the 2020 Jeep Compass can tow up to 2,000 pounds. Moreover, the four-cylinder engine offers a stop/start system.
