It also has skid plates in the front and rear, 17-inch wheels and off-road tires. This not only gives it buffed up off-road looks, it enables it drive through water that’s 19 inches deep.

Even with its complex four-wheel drive system, the Compass still gets an EPA measured combined 25 miles per gallon. Plus, it has good headroom and with the 60/40 folding seats, there’s enough cargo area for the kids and all their sports gear.
