Equipment is far from what you'll find in the flagship Jeep Grand Cherokee, but value is a strong point for the 2012 Compass. For a model with an entry price of $20k, it comes very well equipped.
Between Compass, Latitude, and Limited models, all three can be had with any of the off-road packages, with the primary differentiation being on the level of interior equipment. Power accessories, fog lamps, and alloy wheels are included in all models, while Latitude and Limited models get extras like remote start, Bluetooth, tailgate speakers, a universal remote, and a media center with 30 gigabytes of storage. Limited models are distinguished by their big 18-inch alloys and come with automatic climate control and an upgraded media center.
The list of features and options isn't boring either; it includes several interesting—and useful—items, like a cool tailgate speaker setup and a cargo-area rechargeable flashlight.
The 2012 Jeep Compass has a thoughtful feature set that's still up-to-date and offers a lot for the money.
