The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Jeep Compass looks pretty good—and its combination of versatile interior, mild off-road ability, and reasonably good gas mileage make it even more attractive—but it simply fails to feel cohesive, responsive, or refined. One of the most improved crossovers, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson has size and value in its corner.
