2018 Jeep Compass Safety

Being labeled the most capable compact SUV ever simply wasn’t enough for Jeep, and engineers decided to make the safest compact SUV as well. Starting with a frame and body that are over 65% high-strength steel, there are over 70 other safety and security features bumper to bumper. Helping earn a “superior” rating in the “Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus” category is the available Automatic Emergency Braking system. The system relies on an innovative sensor-fusion technology that is available with the driver-assist system.

"Sensor-fusion combines the attributes of radar technology and cameras, while most competitive systems use one or the other," said Mark Chernoby, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles "This approach affords greater precision for monitoring the road ahead."

IIHS Safety Tests

The annual testing done by the IIHS focuses on two areas, crashworthiness (how well a vehicle protects the passengers) and crash avoidance and mitigation (technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity). The 2018 Jeep Compass achieved a "good," the highest possible rating in all five IIHS crashworthiness tests, and scored “superior” in crash avoidance.

Crashworthiness is rated as: good, acceptable, marginal or poor. The ratings are measured during six tests that measure the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. Crash prevention and mitigation is rated based on the type of systems present. The ratings range from basic, to advanced, or superior.

The Jeep Compass earned Top Safety Pick by being the best among the best. Never settle for less, and let the Jeep Compass safety rating ease fears about taking your family on the road.
