Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5
  • Good passenger room
  • Decent cubby holes
  • Boot size unaffected by PHEV

Although the Compass isn’t much bigger on the outside than the Jeep Renegade, you really notice the difference in size inside.

Step inside and you’ll be relieved to find there’s enough room for two occupants to sit comfortably without bothering one another in the front.

The Compass is a five-seater with plenty of room throughout. Truth be told, three adults are likely to feel somewhat squeezed on the Jeep’s rear bench. But the same can be said for most cars in this sector.

Leg- and shoulder-room are decent enough, as is headroom. The optional panoramic roof doesn’t eat too much of the available space either.

Boot space and storage

Jeep deems storage space an imperative for its customers. And it does excel. There’s somewhere to put your phone, deep bins big enough for bottles, and it’s upright infotainment system has room below it for things like keys.

Officially the boot will hold 438 litres, which makes it smaller than the Hyundai Tucson (620 litres), Peugeot 3008 (520 litres) and Nissan Qashqai (504 litres).

However, unlike with some hybrid and plug-in hybrid SUVs, the batteries and electrical components don’t make a difference to the boot size, as Jeep has hidden everything under the car’s floor. And the hybrids still get the same dual-function boot with a raised loading surface at the top and maximised loading capacity at the bottom.

Is it easy to park?

The Compass feels more compact than it actually is. So it’s unlikely to feel unwieldy to a buyer trading up from a more conventional hatchback.

Jeep has fitted the SUV with a reversing camera as standard (which helps improve visibility), while a self-parking system can be specified as an optional extra.
