Expert Quotes:

The 2.4-liter engine in our Latitude model was unrefined not only in its feel, but also its sound.

New materials on the door panel and a new armrest go a long way toward improving the otherwise unchanged interior
Edmunds' Inside Line

cramped rear seats
Motor Trend

The door panels and center armrest now feature soft-touch surfaces in place of hard plastic.

Jeep has spruced up the interior with respect to a number of details for 2011, but the seating, cargo, and instrument-panel layouts carry over.

For four adults, the Compass's interior does the job; seats tend to be quite short and lacking in support, so it's no long-haul highway cruiser, but the driving position is upright yet quite carlike. In back there's enough headroom for most adults (although legroom is a bit tight), and the bench is among the hardest, flattest ones we've tested. While there are plenty of cubbies and bins for stashing small items, cargo space remains limited. There just isn't much space behind the back seats, and the cargo floor is a bit higher than you might expect.

The Compass gets soft-touch surfaces for the door panels for 2011, plus all-new upholsteries and new backlit door switches and window controls. Despite Chrysler's efforts, switchgear still feels on the cheap side, though the new details do slightly improve first impressions.

While the 2011 Compass has a decent, albeit slightly pitchy ride, it remains near the back of the pack in refinement. Chrysler has added more noise insulation to the Compass over the years, which has helped reduce road and wind noise, but a surprisingly high level of engine noise and coarseness still enters the cabin when accelerating.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
