The 2017 Jeep Compass – IIHS Top Safety Pick
The 2017 Jeep Compass was given a makeover and its new design earned it a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
In order to have been considered an IIHS Top Safety Pick, the Jeep Compass earned a “good” rating in all five crash tests. Additionally, the optional Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) technology, was rated “superior.”
The redesigned Compass has more than 70 safety features and in order to maximize the vehicle’s dynamics, the Jeep Compass uses more than 65% high-strength steel in its body and frame which adds to its crash performance while reducing weight. In addition to the seven standard airbags, the Compass is also equipped with seat-mounted side pelvic-thorax airbags and full-length, side-curtain airbags.
One of the safety features available on the Compass and other Jeep models is Full Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus as part of the Advanced Safety and Lighting package. The feature offers drivers forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
All-in-all, the revamped version of the 2017 Jeep Compass is doing exceptionally well and getting a positive response from the public. Since Jeep didn’t make many changes from the 2017 to the 2018 model year Compass, there’s a good chance it could earn another I.I.H.S. Top Safety Pick.
