The 2010 Jeep Compass doesn't come with much standard equipment, especially at the base Sport level, but most reviewers zero in on its intriguing list of options.
The base-level Sport model comes rather simply equipped, with manual-winding windows, but air conditioning and a CD sound system are standard. For power accessories, heated leather seats, keyless entry, cruise control, a 115-volt power outlet, and other extras, you'll need to step up to the Limited.
People looking for luxury features will want to note the less than enticing standard manual windows and locks as pointed out by Cars.com on the Sport Jeep Patriot. Edmunds calls the standard Sport Patriot "pretty basic" and highlights the upscale features available in the more expensive Limited package, such as 17-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, privacy glass, and chrome exterior accents.
Edmunds reports that both the Sport and Limited trim levels can be optioned with such gizmos as a six-disc CD changer and a Boston Acoustics premium audio system with satellite radio and flip-down speakers in the liftgate. Kelley Blue Book comments that "outdoorsy Jeep types will find it an especially alluring option." The 2010 Jeep Patriot Limited also features a 115-volt outlet, power accessories, cruise control, and remote keyless entry in its list of standard equipment. Edmunds specifically mentions that the 2010 Jeep's option list for the Patriot Limited includes a navigation system, skid plates, and even hands-free phone connectivity.
In terms of more unusual options that are targeted to the outdoors-oriented Jeep customer, ConsumerGuide likes the Patriot’s rubber-coated floor since it’s “easy to clean, perfect for carrying dirty, messy cargo." Cars.com also appreciates the ability to order a removable cargo area dome light that serves as a handy rechargeable flashlight, as well as a chilled glove box.
