The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.3
4.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Jeep Compass hasn't aged well, and its space, performance, and especially safety are all now well below par. The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is an attractive option for budget buyers looking for a capable crossover, but doesn't come without compromises.
