TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Jeep Compass is affordable and makes good practical sense—but its disappointing interior appointments and lack of refinement limit its appeal. The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is space-efficient, comfortable, and very maneuverable, but its noisy interior and lack of refinement are limiting factors. With the frugality of a Corolla and hatchback versatility, the 2013 Toyota Matrix delivers on practicality but falls short if you expect a hot hatch.
