The all-new 2019 Jeep Compass now looks even better than the vehicle it replaced. Jeep Compass is coming with a style and some impressive technology features as well. New Compass is designed and sized so it can compete in global markets, something his big brother Jeep Cherokee can’t do. The Compass is smaller and much easier to maneuver, but yet again, large enough to make its presence.
This vehicle is not that powerful but it can outperform some competitors for sure. Compass is more than just a smaller Jeep at an affordable price. This SUV is very quiet on the road, it looks good and feels comfortable. When dressed in Trailhawk trim, it can produce more than well in some off-road tasks.

2019 Jeep Compass Interior and Trims
Jeep is not making huge changes in terms of interior design. It is a familiar 5-passenger interior with comfortable seats and big vents flanking the dashboard. Controls are really easy to use, and the rear-seat passengers will now have even more legroom. Speaking of cargo room, there is a little over 27 cubic feet behind the rear seats. Folding the seats can double that space.
2019 Jeep Compass is coming in four trims available. The first trim and base one is a Sport trim and it comes with keyless entry and push-button start. Additionally, a rearview camera is updated, while infotainment system will now feature a new 5-inch touchscreen.

The only engine available for the 2019 Jeep Compass is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder unit. This engine comes with a 6-speed manual transmission and it can produce a 180 HP and 175 lb-ft of torque. AWD models are available with higher trims and it will come with a 9-speed automatic gearbox. Also, we expect in near future hybrid or plug-in engine.
Moreover, Compasses that are equipped with automatic transmission will own a start/stop system that will cut the engine power at idle. The fuel economy is good, with the 23/32 mpg (FWD, manual), 22/31 mpg (4WD manual, FWD automatic) and 22/30 mpg for the (4WD automatic).

The rear-seat have a 38.3 inches of legroom. This is much more space that can offer model Toyota Camry sedan. Also, behind the rear seats are over 27 cubic feet of cargo space. This is plenty of space for a gear and goods. If one fold the rear seats it will double that space. It will get around 60 cubic feet.
