All Star new Jeep Dealer near Wood River is pleased to announce that the new 2013 Jeep Compass is ranked 19 out of 20 Affordable Compact SUVs and number 15 in Off Road SUVs.
Its low base price may attract value-conscious shoppers, but reviewers say that the 2013 Jeep Compass lacks the power, refinement and space of higher-ranking compact SUVs.
The new Jeep Compass has a 4 cylinder engine with a V6 upgrade available and a standard 5 speed manual transmission. An optional feature is the Continuously Variable Transmission also called CVT which improves performance. According to the EPA fuel economy in the Compass is 23 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway. Handling is good according to auto reviewers.
SUV buyers will be attracted to the low price and great fuel economy of the Jeep Compass. Because it is a crossover, this vehicle offers great handling-more like a car than a truck. The Compass is more of a family vehicle or office commuter and not a top off road SUV.
The new Compass is more affordable than many other SUVs in its class. Standard features include; a four-speaker stereo with an auxiliary input jack. Optional features include automatic climate control, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, navigation and a Boston Acoustics stereo with flip-down tailgate speakers.
“Compass makes sense as a functional wagon for people who crave Jeep Grand Cherokee styling in a cheaper, more-compact package.” — Consumer Guide (2012)
“Its interior look and feels, dare we say it, nice.” – Edmunds
