The Jeep Compass is a fun, sporty SUV that combines the
handling, fuel economy and performance of a compact car
with the usability and functioning of an SUV - all at a
very affordable price.
The 2009 Jeep Compass comes in two models the Jeep Compass
Sport and the Compass Limited.
The Compass features a surprisingly roomy interior that
combines comfort, versatility and functionality. The rear
seats fold flat to give 53.6 cubic feet of cargo space an
available front passenger seat that folds forward to create

Some features have received a new freshened look for 2009
such as the new instrument panel design complete with chrome
accents. A newly designed center console with a split lid
for additional storage room and LED-illuminated cup holders.
The Vinyl load floor from last year's model has been replaced
with a carpet load floor for 2009.

features Jeep is known for such as the round headlights
and the unique seven-slot grille. While the lines and aggressive
body stance suggest toughness and durability the overall
