The Compass has the distinction of being Jeep's first front-drive based SUV, with compact, car-like styling, and was originally paired with the more rugged-looking, square-edged, classic XJ Cherokee-style Patriot. Also offered as an AWD, both sold reasonably well.
The second-generation Compass (minus Patriot) from 2018 shares much with the Fiat 500X and Jeep Renegade, is built in India, and is now classed as a medium-sized SUV. Trailhawk versions bring surprising off-road capabilities. The cheapest grade starts from $37,950, rising to $51,650 for the most expensive version.
