The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Jeep Compass is a competent, bargain-priced, and generally well-equipped small crossover; but it's lacking in the tech and safety areas. If you thought about an SUV but really just want a maneuverable small car with good gas mileage and all-wheel drive, the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek is all you need and nothing you don't.
