The Compass hasn't been rated for safety since its refresh, by either of the major safety agencies, but its features are pretty strong, albeit typical for the class.

Side curtain airbags, Brake Traction Control, a driver-controlled three-mode Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Brake Assist, Electronic Roll Mitigation, and Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with rough-road detection are all included, along with front-seat side airbags and active head restraints.

The closely related Jeep Patriot has been rated for 2012 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and it's earned top 'good' ratings in all categories—as well as Top Safety Pick status. And we read that as a good sign for the Compass. 

You'll want to take a look around and make sure you have a good field of vision for parking or changing lanes. For many drivers, the rear-pillar upkick gets in the way during lane changes.

Conclusion

The 2012 Jeep Compass doesn't have any official, updated crash-test ratings, but there are plenty of signs that it's a strong, safe package; rear visibility might be difficult for some, though.

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.
