New for the 2016 Compass line is a Sport SE Package, which consists mainly of fancier trim and some minor convenience items. Added standard equipment includes Uconnect hands-free and SiriusXM Radio, and automatic headlights on the Latitude trim. Mojave Sand is a new color.
Little has changed as the 2015 Jeep Compass carries over for another year. A dome light replaces the removable flashlight, a new green paint color is available, and navigation joins the options list for mid-trim Latitude models.
About Jeep Compass
The 2016 Jeep Compass is a compact-crossover SUV that's been around a while and, as such, lags behind several newer, fresher competitors. Being car-based, it's more appropriate as a front-drive, around-town hatchback than as a rugged trail-bopper, even though Jeep offers it in Trail-Rated format. Still, it doesn't match, for example, the Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, Ford Escape, the segment-leading Honda CR-V or even its Jeep family member, the Cherokee, all of which offer much more in the way of refinement, features, technology, on-road manners and daily driving pleasure. Modest in several ways, the 2016 Compass is at least available at an appropriately modest price.
