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.)

Structure
The passenger space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the upper interior of 12 cm at the dashboard. Maximum lower interior intrusion measured 11 cm at the rightmost portion of the toepan.

Passenger injury measures
Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the right lower leg would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low.

Passenger 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.

Driver injury measures
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

The BMW X1 was redesigned for the 2016 model year.
