The 2022 Jeep Compass is a compact crossover that enjoys the brand’s rugged cachet and can be outfitted to actually excel off-road. It fills the space between the smaller Renegade and the slightly larger Cherokee and competes against alternatives such as the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4. While we’ve derided the Compass’s unremarkable interior in the past, its cabin now has a fresher aesthetic with more modern features. Its apathetic four-cylinder gas engine is also a point of contention, but the addition of a new plug-in hybrid gives the lineup a powertrain that’s becoming more common in this segment. Of course, Jeep’s image is based on getting off the beaten path, and the Trailhawk trim is the best-equipped to accomplish that. The Cherokee may offer even more capability, but the 2022 Compass is arguably prettier and more affordable.
