For a relatively small, inexpensive vehicle, comfort is more than acceptable in the Jeep Compass, with plenty of room for four and even five in a pinch. The roof is tall, and this helps enhance the spacious feeling, though problems do exist inside the cabin of the 2010 Jeep Compass.
Nearly all testers like the passenger accommodations of the Compass. This model offers plenty of room for four occupants, and five won't be uncomfortable. ConsumerGuide is a fan of the interior space offered by the Jeep Compass, describing the headroom and legroom of this 2010 Jeep as "adult-size." They also like the softness of the seating, faulting only the level of support offered by the flat seats. Cars.com mentions that the standard cloth upholstery is stain-resistant. Edmunds characterizes the interior of the Jeep Compass as spacious and comfortable.
Kelley Blue Book is impressed with the abundance of storage options, stating, "plenty of on-board storage spots are available to stow water bottles, CDs and what-have-you,” but they are the only ones to offer positive comments. ConsumerGuide rates the Jeep Compass about average for cargo room, with the handy fold-flat seats and a removable floor liner for easy cleaning offsetting the marginal space that is available with the seats up. Edmunds is less complimentary regarding its cargo capacity, which is at the lower end of the spectrum for vehicles in this class at only 53.6 cubic feet, even with the rear seats folded.
There are issues with the plastic surfaces, which don't exactly have a high-quality feel. "Cut-rate" is an often-used term when describing the interior of the 2010 Jeep Compass. Edmunds warns that "cut-rate interior materials pose a significant liability," and ConsumerGuide also describes the interior of the Jeep Compass as having a "cut-rate feel." In addition, Edmunds notes the unfortunate "build quality issues" in their Compass test vehicles, with visible edges of poorly fitting interior pieces.
Regarding cabin noise, ConsumerGuide points out some unrefined engine growl when accelerating, although they find wind noise to be under control. Last year Chrysler added more sound insulation to help reduce noise, while revised suspension tuning helped provide a smoother, more comfortable ride, so this might have improved somewhat.
