Auto review website Carspondent.com, known for their emphasis on drivers with active lifestyles, recently held their Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year competition. This competition pitted a wide variety of vehicles across nine categories against one another to determine which were best suited for active lifestyles.

The panel of judges included not only expert automotive journalists, but professional athletes who could speak to the real-world value of the models for those with active lifestyles. And for anyone familiar with the quality of Jeep® accessories, parts, and vehicles, it will come as no surprise to find out that the 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk® came out on top of the Best Value Off-Road Vehicle category.

The 2018 Jeep Compass is a compact SUV that’s perfect for those who want off-road abilities and on-road efficiency. Nina Russin, co-founder of the Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year competition, praised the Jeep SUV, saying “The Jeep Compass Trailhawk lived up to its promise of true off-road capability, traversing a challenging course that tested its directional stability and wheel articulation.”

These off-road abilities are due in large part to how the 2.4 liter Tigershark® MultiAir® engine works with three transmission to choose from and the Jeep 4×4 abilities that are practically legend at this point. But the 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk is almost as great on-road as it is off-road. That same powerful engine is also efficient, offering drivers a fuel efficiency of 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Over 70 available safety and security options keep drivers safe and confident, while features like the dual-pane sunroof allow for the classic open-air Jeep SUV feel.

Whether you’re an elite athlete or just a driver who enjoys keeping active, the 2018 Jeep Compass is a perfect choice for active lifestyles – just as the experts at Carspondents.com.
