Introduction
2007 Jeep Compass offers necessary accessories and power backup, although overall design and engine power is much less than other SUVs in same price range.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
2007 Jeep Compass is available in four trims ranging from Sport 4X2 to Limited 4X4. Options include satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, six-disc CD changer, sunroof, premium Boston Acoustics speaker system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and leather seating.

Powertrains and Performance
2007 Jeep Compass offers standard 172hp 2.4-liter I4 engine with five-speed manual transmission and overdrive. Variable speed automatic transmission with overdrive is optional. It delivers 25 to 26-mpg in city and 29 to 30-mpg on highway.

Interior Design and Special Features
Interiors offer comfortable seats and excellent driving position. However, a total plastic look of interiors deters all appreciation. Cargo space is insufficient.

Safety Features
Safety features include standard full-length side curtain airbags, stability control with rollover sensor, traction control, tire-pressure monitoring system in few models, and optional front seat-mounted side airbags.

Driving Impressions
Independent suspension and swift acceleration offers a good and responsive ride. However, it is unable to maneuver difficult curves.

Pros
Affordable price and comfortable seating,

Cons
Slow acceleration, insufficient cargo capacity, and hard plastic in interiors
