The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.8
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. The 2012 Toyota RAV4 remains a strong, refined choice for families, even though some of its design might be a blast from the past.
