The compact class provides valuable options for drivers interested in the capabilities of an SUV, but who might not want the bulk of its larger mainstays. Unfortunately, in many cases, driving a compact also means accepting compromises when it comes to performance. One of the great exceptions to this is the 2018 Jeep Compass.

Built with many of the same rugged sensibilities that define the rest of the Jeep lineup, it provides a solid compact package that, with the right options, can tap into high performance. Its Trailhawk trim, for instance, transforms this family-friendly vehicle into a capable off-roading option. Critics were so impressed by the Compass Trailhawk that it was recently selected to be the recipient of the Active Lifestyle Vehicle award, in the Best Value Off-Road segment.

"The Jeep Compass Trailhawk lived up to its promise of true off-road capability, traversing a challenging course that tested its directional stability and wheel articulation," said ALV program co-founder Nina Russin. The Compass Trailhawk does that by making a series of tweaks and improvements that boost its overall performance. These include things like higher ground clearance and a series of smaller mechanical and technical tricks.
