New 2022 Jeep® Compass Earns TOP SAFETY PICK Rating From IIHS
AUBURN HILLS, Mich., June 14, 2022 --
- Highest possible ratings in each of six IIHS crashworthiness tests
- Standard-equipment automatic emergency braking (AEB) technology graded "superior"
- "Advanced" rating for pedestrian-detection technology
- More than 75 available safety and security features – most in its class
- Compass sales up 22%
The new 2022 Jeep® Compass has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for 2022.
The rating applies to models equipped with LED projector or LED reflector headlamps, when paired with high-beam assist.
"The new 2022 Jeep Compass demonstrates our steadfast commitment to customer satisfaction," said Jim Morrison, vice president, Jeep brand North America. "The Compass blends exceptional active and passive safety features with legendary Jeep 4x4 capability. The result is outstanding value for our customers and their families."
The SUV's TOP SAFETY PICK rating was driven by its performance in six IIHS crashworthiness tests that included three types of frontal crashes. The remaining tests evaluate behavior in a side impact, rear impact and a rollover.
The 2022 Jeep Compass achieved the highest possible score in each.
Further, the vehicle's automatic emergency braking technology – Full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking – earned the highest possible rating of "superior," while its Pedestrian/Cyclist Automatic Emergency Braking system was rated "advanced."
Both features, which are standard equipment on the 2022 Jeep Compass, are designed to detect imminent collisions and, in certain conditions, automatically apply the vehicle's brakes.
These are among more than 75 available safety and security features. Others include Active Lane Management and Rear Cross Path detection.
Despite a challenging market, U.S. Compass sales were up 22% in the first quarter of this year, compared with the first three months of 2021.
