The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.4
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 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport isn't as refined inside as it looks from its exterior, but it maneuvers well and offers a surprising amount of functional space.
