The tested model of Jeep Compass was introduced in Australia during 2012. This rating applies to 4x4 variants with a 2.4 litre petrol or 2.2 litre diesel engine and six airbags (see below).

The JEEP COMPASS scored 11.21 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was marginal for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the pole test. Poor pedestrian protection limited the Euro NCAP rating to 2 stars but this does not apply to ANCAP ratings in 2012.

Important note: The diesel left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that the 4x4 2.4 litre petrol variant can be expected to have comparable crashworthiness to the tested diesel variant.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. The vehicle tested by Euro NCAP has side thorax airbags for the front seats. This scoring applies to Compass variants with this feature. Without these airbags it can still be expected to achieve a 4 star rating.

Pedestrian Summary

The bumper scored no points for its protection of pedestrians' legs. The front edge of the bonnet also scored no points. The bonnet provided good protection in some areas where a child's head might strike, but was poor or marginal in others. In those areas where an adult's head would strike, the bonnet was almost entirely poor.
