Expert Quotes:

no longer such a homely little pug
Edmunds' Inside Line

Unfortunately, Jeep didn't make it much past the A-pillars and the rest looks about the same, save new LED taillights and some new wheels.
Motor Trend

The front end looks so good you want to ignore the mostly carryover profile and rear end.

The Jeep Compass has been around, mostly unchanged, since the 2007 model year; but in 2011 Jeep took a big step toward righting the homely awkwardness of the original Compass design—although the boxy wheelwell outline and out-of-proportion upkick in the rear flanks remain. On the outside, the new 'mini-Grand-Cherokee' look succeeds as a whole, and the result is a vehicle that still has some awkward angles yet fits much better into the market today than when it was first introduced.

That last retouch—sort of a 'lite' version of the revamp given to Chrysler's other vehicles in recent years—simply wasn't enough to overcome the rather low-rent look and feel of the cabin, however. Upholsteries and trims were revamped then, with available Saddle Brown perforated leather upholstery with accent stitching, for instance, or a new sport mesh-and-vinyl with accent stitching. Overall, it's a straightforward and functional look—and it's appealing in appearance if not always touch.

Separately for 2014, the Compass gets a Billet Silver textured grille in its Sport and Latitude trims, while Limited models get new projector halogen lamps with black and chrome bezels; taillamps get a new ‘smoked’ inner bezel.

Conclusion

The Jeep Compass looks better than before, though it's still not one of the most stylish crossovers.

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.
