The Compass has only been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), where it received middling crash ratings. Side crash and rollover ratings received four out of five stars, while frontal impact only received three. The overall NHTSA rating is three out of five stars.

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

The very closely related Jeep Patriot has earned Top Safety Pick status from the 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. 

Outward visibility is the one issue we've noted with Compass models in the past; you'll want to check on vision during parking and lane changes.

Conclusion

There aren't any up-to-date crash-test results for the Compass, although its safety-feature list is good.

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.
