Drivers must deal with rear quarter blind spots”
Kelley Blue Book

The 2010 Jeep Compass isn't remarkable for safety, but it does have respectable crash-test ratings and the safety features that many shoppers for this type of vehicle now expect. Performance in most government crash tests is good.

Standard safety features on the 2010 Jeep Compass include 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, along with front-seat side airbags and active head restraints.

Although the Compass has not been fully tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the IIHS did rate the Compass "good" for side impact, while the federal government gave it four stars in frontal protection and five stars for side impact.

ConsumerGuide notes faults with visibility, saying, "Visibility to front corners and over-the-shoulder is impeded by thick roof pillars, and to the rear by tall headrests." Kelley Blue Book finds the rear view most obscured, warning, "Drivers must deal with rear quarter blind spots."

Conclusion

The 2010 Jeep Compass has good standard safety features and decent crash-test ratings, but poor driver visibility.

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.
