2020 Jeep Compass is stylish but flawed

We love the way the Jeep Compass looks, but aren't a fan of the way it drives.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

The 2020 Jeep Compass is rugged and handsome.

Many of the styling cues are borrowed from the larger Grand Cherokee.

Both front- and all-wheel drive are available.

Regardless of trim, every Compass comes with a 2.4-liter I4 engine.

Unfortunately, the engine isn't very powerful, and the nine-speed automatic transmission isn't tuned well.

The Compass offers many driver-assistance features, but they're all optional extras.

Cabin tech is handled by Fiat-Chrysler's 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment software.
