Looking at the exterior design features for the Trax, it's easy to see more smooth lines and a less aggressive overall appearance than you find on the Compass. The Jeep's classic grille and sporty body shape lends itself to the optional off-road capability. Both vehicles have optional all-wheel drive, but come with front-wheel drive on the base trim. The Compass has a larger and more powerful engine, meaning that your driving experience is sure to be more entertaining inside. You can tow up to 1,000 lbs with your Compass, and with the optional engine upgrade, your capability only increases!

The Compass comes fitted with heated front seats, making for a warm and cozy winter driving experience, and lumbar support for the driver.
