The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Although the 2010 Jeep Compass strikes out on design, with an anonymous look that fails to be either sleek or rugged, it has decent performance, good safety, and some standout features. The 2008 Hyundai Tucson no longer stands out in its class for performance or safety, but it’s still a great value.
