The highly rated 2016 Jeep Compass has become a go-to alternative for the car shopper looking for hip style and low cost. The Grand Cherokee tailoring and the Jeep name has enduring appeal; its comfortable front seats, pleasing interior touches and above-average off-road capability add to the fun.

The Compass Sport is unique with its four-wheel drive manual transmission; comfortable ride and handling for this model is abundant on a wide range of street and highway conditions and the steering feels well-weighted.
