Building on the Jeep® Brand tradition of trusted resilience, the 2018 Jeep® Compass continues the story. More than 70 available safety and security features are combined with the latest technology and contemporary engineering to alert you of risks and help protect you in the face of danger.
Solid frame construction combines high-strength steel with other advanced materials to help create a protective cocoon around occupants. Occupants are further protected by one of the most sophisticated airbag systems of its kind with seven standard airbags. Driver and front passenger airbags incorporate a three-vent system to ensure optimal deployment for occupants of every size and weight.
It’s impossible to predict how weather, temperature or terrain are going to affect the road ahead. The Compass is equipped with standard and available active safety and security features–designed to assess road conditions and adjust performance to help the driver maintain control. Electronic Stability Control integrates antilock brakes and traction control systems to instantly analyze inputs and help keep the vehicle headed where the driver intends.
BLIND SPOT MONITORING
Safe lane changes help everybody on the road. Sensors in the available Blind Spot Monitoring system scan approximately one lane over on each side of your vehicle and will alert you with an illuminated icon and audible chime when a vehicle enters your blind spot zone.
Parking lots and tight parking spaces are the sources of lots of dings and dents. The Compass is available with some of the most advanced and comprehensive systems in the market today to help you avoid trouble and navigate your way in and out.
PARKVIEW® REAR BACK UP CAMERA
An extra set of eyes can come in handy. This available system displays a rearview video image with dynamic gridlines when you shift into reverse. A dashed line overlay indicates the center of the vehicle to assist with parking or aligning to a hitch/receiver.
PARKSENSE® REAR PARK ASSIST SYSTEM
Help navigate tight parking spaces with this available smart system. Four integrated sensors on the rear fascia pulse ultrasonic waves when the vehicle is shifted into reverse. Adjacent sensors pick up the echo of a signal when it bounces off an object and notify the driver when the vehicle gets too close.
REAR CROSS PATH DETECTION
Tall vehicles and other visual impediments can make backing out of a parking spot dangerous. Available Rear Cross Path Detection monitors behind your vehicle and will notify you with audible chimes and/or visual icons when another vehicle crosses behind you.
Stay on your intended path, thanks to the Electronic Stability Control system and the thousands of micro-adjustments it makes every second. The system monitors steering input and vehicle motion and then applies brakes and reduces engine torque to help keep you headed in the direction you want.
