The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
5.5
5.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport carves out a new all-terrain niche for one of the most beloved off-road names in auto history. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee cashes in on off-road prowess and luxury features but comes up short elsewhere. The 2020 Jeep Compass is smartly sized and priced but lacks in key areas like safety and efficiency.
