2017 Jeep Compass Crash test & Rating – Video
The Jeep Compass was redesigned during the 2017 model year. (A short run of old-design 2017 models was produced through December 2016.) All 2017 and later Compass models built after December 2016 are the redesigned vehicles. (Information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on the driver door or adjacent B-pillar.)
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 8 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion measured 5-6 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel.
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.
