The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.3
6.2
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 Subaru Outback is an extremely versatile, rugged, compact SUV that's relatively efficient compared to other crossovers.
