The Compass, part of Jeep's lineup since 2007, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it handles mud, snow, and sand with ease. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Compass packs some oomph. Jeep offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2021 Jeep Compass is average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Jeep Compass has a score of 80, implying a 0.042% chance of driver death (3.7% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.036%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.2%.

We estimate that the 2021 Jeep Compass has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0416% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.7551%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0416% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.7551% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Jeep Compass is 11% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2021 Jeep Compass is 2% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2021 Jeep Compass offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading.

But it is safer than many comparable models.
