2009 Compass Overview

The Jeep Compass is built like a car and drives like a car.Jeep redesigned the interior of the Compass for 2009, with a new dashboard and instrument panel, soft-touch surfaces on the door armrests and center console, and a carpeted load floor instead of vinyl.

The Jeep Compass uses Chrysler's 2.4-liter, four-cylinder World Engine, developed jointly for 21st century efficiency with Mitsubishi and Hyundai.It's a solid, sophisticated, 16-valve engine.It features electronic variable valve timing that continually changes the torque curve, bringing more versatility to the 165 peak pound-feet of torque, and more capability to the 172 peak horsepower.Emphasis during development of this engine was on fuel mileage; even carrying 3326 pounds, the Compass 4WD with a five-speed manual transmission delivers EPA fuel economy estimates of 22/27 mpg City/Highway.

The Jeep Compass offers an optional continuously variable transaxle, which performs like an automatic transmission.The CVT comes with the Auto Stick manual shiftgate feature.The Auto Stick enables the driver to shift up and down over six preset gear ratios, making it feel like a six-speed gearbox without a clutch pedal.

The Compass rides and handles more like a car than an SUV and it offers plenty of safety features.It has a strong steel structure and a well-planned subframe.Side-curtain airbags and electronic stability control with anti-rollover sensors are standard.

Inside, the instruments and controls are well placed and easy to use.There's good interior space all around, with rear seats that fold flat to make about 54 cubic feet of cargo space.Options for added versatility include reclining rear seats and a passenger front seat that also folds flat, creating either a table or eight-foot-long space for storage.While the new interior design is a step up versus the cut-rate feel of the last version, it is still largely plastic and doesn't offer a rich or warm feel.Power windows and power door locks are optional.

For 2009, the Compass also gets more sound insulation in the engine compartment and floor, as well as revised suspension tuning on the Sport model for a more comfortable ride.Jeep's UConnect Tunes and UConnect GPS systems are also offered for the first time.
