Jeep Compass Named IIHS Top Safety Pick


For over 75 years Jeep has had a reputation for performance, durability and versatility. Now you can add superior safety. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass earns the top safety pick. This is in part because of its body structure that’s made of high-strength steel. This helped the vehicle earn the highest possible ratings when it comes to collision-warning technology and crashworthiness. In all five of the crashworthiness tests, the 2017 Jeep Compass got the top rating of ‘good’. That’s better than all other vehicles in its class. If you want to enjoy a best in class vehicle, you should first take one for a test drive at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

The all-new Compass was rated ‘superior’ for its Full-speed Forward Collision-Plus which is part of its Automatic Emergency Braking technology that’s currently available. The system benefits from the sensor-fusion strategy employed by Jeep. With more than 70 safety and security features available, including 7 air bags as standard equipment, it’s the most capable compact SUV. The Automatic Emergency Braking technology available on the new Compass was also graded as “superior.” It’s the IIHS’ highest possible rating in its category. Earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick designation requires such performance.

The combination of the over 65% high-strength steel content of the 2017 Jeep Compass and the advanced level of engineering sophistication that went into its development and production contributes to the vehicle’s crashworthiness. It also helps to make the small SUV the most capable ever in its class. Advanced high-strength steel and hot-stamped steel make up over half the high-strength steel in the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass. Since the 2012 model-year FCA US as increased the high-strength steel used in their vehicles by more than 50 percent.

Some other tests in which the 2017 Jeep Compass received a rating of “good” include:

Moderate-offset frontal impact
Side impact involving a pickup truck or large SUV
Small-offset frontal impact
A rear collision powerful enough to cause whiplash
Roof-deformation caused by a rollover

A hallmark of FCA US’ safety strategy is the use of Advanced AEB technology. The all-new 2018 Jeep Compass has benefited from the company’s sensor-fusion technology that’s available in its Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus system in its driver-assist feature. Sensor-fusion uses both radar technology and cameras to provide greater precision when monitoring the road ahead. Most competitive systems employ one or the other. This Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus technology is one of the 2017 Jeep Compass’ 70 security and safety features. They also include side pelvic-thorax air bags mounted on the seats as well as full-length, side-curtain air bags as part of its seven standard-equipment air bags.

The cost of the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass begins at $20,995. That excludes destination, title, taxes and registration fees. This is well worth it because this new authentic SUV combines the Jeep brand’s legendary 75 year heritage with versatility, craftsmanship and class-leading capability for people seeking extraordinary journeys. It offers an open invitation for people to live their life to the fullest. The entire line of Jeep vehicles provide owners with the feeling of security to confidently handle any journey.
