2011 Jeep Compass Fuel Economy

7.0
On Fuel Economy
For a vehicle with just two closely related (and closely sized) four-cylinder engines, the 2011 Jeep Compass can have quite widely varying EPA fuel economy ratings depending on which transmission and drive system you get. City ratings range from 20 to 23 mpg, and highway ratings span from 23 mpg to 29, with base front-wheel-drive, manual-transmission Compass models doing the best and models with the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package getting just 20/23 mpg.

Are those ratings impressive? In an absolute sense, they're not very green, and you could do much better with a more carlike hatchback model while having about the same interior space. But versus other off-road-capable vehicles, the Compass is a reasonably green choice.
