Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide variety of options, so you can pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be all of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Jeep Compass. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2020 Jeep Compass is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to select from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the 2020 Jeep Compass with a four-cylinder engine or a more powerful V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Jeep Compass Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Jeep Compass is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Jeep Compass also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Jeep Compass with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Jeep Compass offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you go with one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to select from along the way.
The 2020 Jeep Compass is as competent as they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content helps it be supremely easy to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a little more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the 2020 Jeep Compass might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Jeep Compass is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Jeep Compass Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features on the upper trim levels could be added to the low trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL audio system along with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Jeep Compass stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to suit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to create most people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Jeep Compass has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so your front seat do not need to be scooted all the way forward.
