2022 Jeep Compass
The subcompact crossover SUV segment has few real off-roaders. Leave it to the iconic Jeep brand to build a small, affordable, and practical crossover with some serious off-road capability when equipped with all-wheel drive. The small but mighty 2022 Jeep Compass is slotted between the Renegade and the Cherokee as an appealing option in small, affordable SUVs with a rugged personality.
The Compass got a nice mid-cycle refresh for 2022. This is a welcome improvement since it started to get stale compared to more modern rivals like the Kia Seltos. The update includes tweaked exterior styling, a redesigned interior with more technology, a re-tuned suspension, and a new Lattitude Lux trim. The result is a more modern small SUV that’s still a good off-roader when properly equipped.

Off-road capabilities are a strong suit of the Compass, especially in the Trailhawk trim. Any AWD-equipped Compass is up for mild off-roading, but the Trailhawk adds more ground clearance, skid plates, and Rock mode on top of a cool appearance package. The Trailhawk is the best off-roader in subcompact SUVs.

The interior of the Jeep Compass has gotten a thorough upgrade for the 2022 model year. This is a significant update compared to the 2021 model, which had an interior that was getting pretty dated compared to tough competition. The new interior design is sleek and modern with a new steering wheel, a new dash, and new standard and available infotainment systems. The standard system is a big 8.4-inch screen, which is huge for a standard infotainment system in this class. It’s upgradable to a more feature-rich 10.1-inch unit.

Breathe Easier With These Expert Allergist Tips
Spring is a stunning season full of life as plants grow, flowers bloom and the sun shines. The downside of this abundance of beauty is seasonal allergens. Pollen from all those growing and blooming plants spreads via warm breezes and can make you feel awful.

"Allergic rhinitis, commonly called hay fever, has been around for hundreds of years, causing symptoms like sneezing, itchy eyes, mouth or skin, runny nose, and congestion," said Dr. Mark Corbett, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. "Your symptoms often depend on which pollens you're allergic to."

Allergists can help identify precisely what is causing you problems so you can take appropriate action based on your individual needs. Along with taking your history and conducting an exam, allergists conduct tests to identify your specific allergens and treat your symptoms to help you take control. Testing for hay fever typically includes sensitivity to pets, dust mites, trees, grasses, weeds, and mold as they are the most likely triggers for nasal allergies.

2022 BMW X5
The 2022 BMW X5 is a principal player in the premium midsize SUV/crossover class and an incredibly capable machine. It could even be described as the godfather of premium crossovers. The original X5 was a real trendsetter, and successive generations have seen it evolve to this lofty point.
Yet the X5 is still evolving and still setting trends. For example, the xDrive45e is a plug-in hybrid version able to achieve the equivalent of 50 miles per gallon. And BMW is sourcing tires using a blend of rubber from sustainable cultivation with rayon. Initially, these will be 22-inch tires for the larger optional wheels, but BMW is taking steps in the right direction.
