The Compass, a mainstay of Jeep's lineup since 2007, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. The Jeep Compass has some real zest, surpassing typical horsepower for its class. Jeep offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 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 2022 Jeep Compass has a score of 82, implying a 0.039% chance of driver death (3.5% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Jeep Compass has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0392% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.4729%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0392% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.4729% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Jeep Compass is 16% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Jeep Compass is 4% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Jeep's ProTech I greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the Jeep Compass include: Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection.

Some advanced safety features --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps, which is optional on the 2022 Jeep Compass, points headlights towards the direction that the vehicle is heading, even on turns. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

But it is safer than many comparable models.
