All-new Jeep Compass earns 2017 Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced the all-new Jeep Compass has earned a 2017 Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 2017 compact SUV achieves “good” ratings in each of five IIHS tests that evaluate crashworthiness. Its available Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) technology also earns a grade of “superior.” Each of these ratings are the highest possible IIHS rating in its category. 

The Jeep Compass scored “good” ratings in tests that simulate a side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck, a moderate-offset frontal impact, a small-offset frontal impact, roof-deformation consistent with a rollover; and a rear collision capable of inducing whiplash.

More than half of the Jeep Compass high-strength steel comprises hot-stamped steel and advanced high-strength steel. The unit also benefits from sensor-fusion technology in its available driver-assist feature, Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus. 

Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus is among 70 safety and security features in the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass. Among its seven standard-equipment air bags are seat-mounted side pelvic-thorax air bags and full-length, side-curtain air bags.

The all-new 2017 Jeep Compass is built in Toluca, Mexico, for the North American and European markets.
