2017 Jeep Compass vs. Its Competition

2017 Jeep Compass
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The 2017 Jeep Compass' base price may not be much lower than some of its rivals, but this dated model is usually subject to heavy discounts.

That can work in your favor if a good deal is your bottom line, but it's worth shopping rivals.

The Subaru Crosstrek is a little more car-like on road without sacrificing much (if anything) off road, and it is available with all of the latest safety and convenience technologies.

So too sporty the Mazda CX-5, which, like the Subaru is available with a stick shift.

The Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V are a little pricier than the Jeep but reveal their refinement quickly.

And if you're set on staying in the Jeep showroom, the brand's Renegade has more personality, safety, comfort, and refinement.

Quick Specs
The 2017 Jeep Compass hasn't aged well, and its space, performance, and especially safety are all now well below par.
The 2017 Hyundai Tucson doesn't live on the cutting edge, but it's an attractive, economical crossover SUV that's worth a spot on your shopping list.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is an attractive option for budget buyers looking for a capable crossover, but doesn't come without compromises.
The 2017 Nissan Juke is best considered as the sportiest pick among subcompact crossovers, but it does come at a price.
The 2017 Subaru Outback is an extremely versatile, rugged, compact SUV that's relatively efficient compared to other crossovers.
It may be less mini than before, but the Mini Countryman now does a much better job of feeling like a proper crossover.
