The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Jeep Compass steers the brand toward a new on-road audience but falls short, pleasing neither off-roaders nor drivers who never hit the trails. The 2008 Toyota RAV4 brings a little more space than most compact SUVs without a mid-size price.
