The 2018 Jeep Compass is loaded with the latest technologies to assist the driver, provide the comfort of a luxury SUV, and give you access to a first-class multimedia system. The Compass is now equipped with Uconnect, which allows the driver or passenger to control all of the features of the Compass through the touchscreen on the dashboard, through a smartphone, or via voice command technology for hands-free convenience.
The Compass comes standard with a state-of-the-art airbag system that deploys seven airbags in the event of a collision. Chrysler’s new LaneSense technology alerts the driver when he or she is slipping outside of their lane by measuring the vehicle’s position within lane boundaries and alerting the driver when they begin to drift.
The Compass also comes with Forward Collision Warning and Active Braking. The system alerts the driver if it senses a potential frontal collision and automatically applies the brakes if the driver does not respond in a timely fashion.
The Parkview Rear Backup Camera gives you an extra set of eyes in the back of your vehicle, making it much easier to reverse without having to crank your neck 180 degrees to ensure that you are backing out safely.
The Passive Entry and Keyless Enter ‘n Go feature allows owners to unlock the car without a key using fingerprint recognition technology. This feature also uses a push-button ignition, so there’s no more hassle of fumbling for your keys on a dark, cold night. Just open the door right up, sit down, buckle up, and press start. You’re off to the races.
The Compass is so well equipped, it basically drives itself. You don’t even have to turn on your windshield wipers anymore. The 2018 Jeep Compass has Rain-Sensing windshield wipers that automatically keep your window free of rain and debris without you having to raise a finger. The blades know when to speed up and slow down by sensing the amount of water that accumulates on the glass. The Compass’ side mirrors are also heated to avoid letting ice and fog obscure your vision when maneuvering on the roadway.
Even the headlamps of the Compass know when it becomes dark outside and turns themselves on (if the function is set to active). This is just one of many new safety features that has kept Jeep at the forefront of the industry as one of the most trusted brands for safety and security.
