It was recently reported that the all-new Jeep® Compass had been named a 2017 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), receiving a top rating of "good" in all five of the proprietary IIHS tests that evaluate a vehicle's crashworthiness.

The Compass earned "good" ratings in tests that simulated a side impact with a pickup truck or large SUV, a moderate-offset frontal impact, a small-offset frontal impact, roof deformation that's consistent with a rollover, and a rear collision that's capable of inducing whiplash.

Jeep was particularly proud of the fact that that the SUV's available Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) earned a "superior" grade, which is the highest score available. Since Advanced AEB technology is an important part of the company's safety strategy, working in tandem with Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus driver-assistance. Full-speed Forward Collision Warning Plus is one of 70 safety and security features offers for the Jeep Compass, along with seven standard airbags.

Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global, remarked in a press release, "The all-new Jeep Compass benefits from high-strength steel content that exceeds 65 percent. This not only contributes to crashworthiness, it speaks to a level of engineering sophistication that makes this vehicle the most capable small SUV ever."
