17. Jeep Compass


The Jeep Compass was always a pretty competent urban SUV but when it finally received Grand Cherokee styling, the package was complete. Under the hood is an 180 hp four cylinder which powers front wheels (AWD is optional) and you can get a 6-speed manual or automatic. The base equipment is pretty good and the base price of $20,950 is acceptable considering the available space, design, and quality.
