The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Jeep Compass is a competent, bargain-priced, and generally well-equipped small crossover; but it's lacking in the tech and safety areas. The 2016 Mini Counryman retains a fair amount of the Mini character and fun-to-drive spirit, but a growing crop of small crossovers give it more competition than ever.
