Jeep Compass Limited AWD SUV 2022 Review

We drive the Compass on a road test review

Jeep Compass – Jeep has long been associated with robust 4WD go anywhere type of vehicles like the wrangler, but the Compass, which was updated just last year, is more an urban style SUV. 

2022 Jeep Compass Limited front  There are a few models and this week we drove the Limited S model that comes with a 2.4L petrol engine, 9 speed automatic transmission, Jeep Active Drive 4×4 and Selec-Terrain (Tm) System.

It provides a good blend of urban comfort and surprising 4WD capability. Perfect for forest trails, beech driving or trips to the snow as well as daily safety in the wet.

The Compass is a good looking SUV that looks smaller than it actually is. Our model came with optional heated and ventilated front leather seats with multiple electronic adjustments, 10.25-inch digital driver instrument cluster, Wireless charging and connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as updated advanced driver assist safety features.

The central screen houses Jeeps customisable U Connect system with a 10.1 inch touch screen.

Overall the Jeep Compass is a stylish 4WD SUV that allows the more adventurous owners the ability to explore further from the blacktop in comfort.
