Jeep Compass: New Standards in Safety
First, let’s talk about what you’re getting with the 2022 Jeep Compass. Beginning with its first design, the model strives to provide protection on all fronts. That starts with three newly standard features included in the model’s available Advanced Safety Group:
● Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: This system uses a radar sensor to alert you if your vehicle is approaching another vehicle too quickly. It can even automatically apply brake pressure if necessary.
● Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection: An alert system notifies you when another vehicle is traveling in one of your blind spots or when you’re backing up.
● Active Lane Management: This system maintains your vehicle’s position within lane boundaries. It can even recenter your vehicle back into its original lane using corrective steering.
More than these features, each Jeep Compass is made up of a high-strength steel frame to lessen the impact of collisions while protecting the precious cargo inside.
The frame helps optimize vehicle dynamics and evenly distributes the weight. Plus, the Compass comes with seven standard and advanced airbags, including side-curtain front and rear airbags.
Jeep Compass: Other Available Systems and Trims
For even more coverage, check out the 2022 Jeep Compass and its available safety systems.
This includes the Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go technology. This feature is designed for those longer commutes, automatically adjusting your speed to maintain a pre-selected distance between you and the vehicle ahead.
That means, your Compass thinks for itself by allowing a comfortable distance between you and other motorists, without you as the driver having to intervene.
Explore the Compass and its seven different trim levels. Each level offers its own unique standard safeties. For example, the Latitude model comes with fog and cornering lamps, helping light up your way through heavy fog or maneuver through sharp corners.
Go up one level and you’ll have the Compass Latitude LUX. This model comes with rain-sensing windshield wipers, ParkSense® Rear Park-Assist System, and Bi-Function LED Projector Headlamps.
Explore each trim to find out which one has just the right amount of advanced safety features you want.
Jeep Compass: What Others Have to Say
Although the 2022 Compass has yet to be safety tested, we can still look at its rating for the 2021 model to determine in which categories the Compass scores the highest.
When tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Compass scored the highest rating in nearly every category under crashworthiness. The categories include:
● Head restraints & seats
● Roof strength
● Small overlap front: driver/passenger-side
Specifically, the 2021 Jeep Compass Latitude all-wheel drive model was tested and scored high marks for the driver’s head protection.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Compass a 5-Star Safety Rating for side crashes.
The Jeep Compass has a history of achieving high scores in safety according to two of the leading automotive safety organizations.
