2018 Compass Crash Tests

One of the best ways to discover how safe a vehicle is is to submit it to vigorous crash tests. Fortunately, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is dedicated to just that. After numerous tests, the Compass passed with flying colors earning the highest rating in all crashworthiness categories. In terms of crash avoidance and mitigation, the Compass was rated to be superior considering its numerous driver assistance features.

When you drive a crossover like the Compass, it's pretty common to have rear passengers. With people in the back, it's important to know that you have adequate protection in the case of side impacts. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Compass excels in side crash ratings earning a perfect 5 stars with both front seat and back seat tests.

Driver Assistance in the 2018 Compass

You never have to drive alone when you're behind the wheel of the Compass. Numerous driver assistance features are there to help you along. The LaneSense system helps you maintain your lane like never before. If you begin to drift out of your lane without signaling, you will receive alerts. The system can even edge you back into place automatically.

Arguably the most impressive feature, however, is the forward collision warning system with active braking. This system is constantly scanning the area in front of your Compass in search of imminent collisions. Should one be detected, you will receive emergency alerts so you know to hit the brakes. Fail to do so, and the Compass can apply brake pressure for you.

Jeep Compass Convenience

As much as we may hate to admit it, a lot of collisions can be easily avoided with patience and a deft hand. Jeep knew this when designing the Compass which is why it included systems that make everyday tasks easier. The ParkSense system helps you park anywhere you like whether you have to parallel park or perform another difficult maneuver. Sensors are mounted on your front and rear bumper that alert you if you get too close to any objects including curbs or other vehicles.

This same system can be used to detect oncoming cars when backing out of a spot. We've all experienced that situation when two huge vehicles park next to us while we're in the store. With rear cross path detection, you won't need to see around them since the scanners will alert you of any oncoming cars.
