The Jeep Compass may not offer the best of anything, but it does come equipped with some of the most important features that compact-SUV buyers look for. For starters, each Compass boasts a 200-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. Compared to some of its better competitors, its beginning price is more affordable, and those competitors do not come equipped with all-wheel drive.
