2014 Jeep Compass Video Transcript
Professional car reviewers consider the 2014 Jeep Compass to be a decent option for shoppers attracted to its low base price. I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with US News Best Cars. In this video we will take a closer look at what experts say about the 2014 Jeep Compass.
The Jeep Compass went through a full redesign in 2011 and for 2014 has undergone interior and exterior styling updates. With the base 4-cylinder engine the Compass delivers an EPA estimated 23 miles per gallon in the city and 30 on the highway which is comparable with other affordable compact SUVs.
The Compass comes standard with front-wheel drive while two 4-wheel drive systems are optional. Three trims are offered with the base Compass starting at about $19,000. The base Compass comes with a 4-cylinder engine which is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. A larger more powerful 4-cylinder engine and a new 6-speed automatic transmission are also available.
Auto-critics say that the 2014 Jeep Compass lacks power offered by other compact SUVs. They also call the ride harsh and uninspiring. On the inside reviewers say that the 2014 Jeep Compass offers clear gauges and logically placed controls. However, some reviewers are let down by the interior styling and materials. They note that taller back seat passengers may also need more leg room.
The Compass comes standard with a 4-speaker stereo and an auxiliary input jack and now includes front-seat side airbags. Available features include navigation and a Boston Acoustic stereo system with flip-down tailgate speakers.
