Compare Trim Levels

If you're looking for more options when it comes to trim levels, the Jeep Compass has more to offer. The Compass is available in five trim levels for you to explore, and there's something for just about everyone. Whether you have your heart set on luxury or unrelenting off-road capability, there's a trim to suit your needs. The Chevy Equinox offers one fewer, and the affordable base trim is only available if you place a special order for it.

Compare Off-Road Capability

Venturing off the beaten path is something that the Jeep lineup was born to do, and the Jeep Compass is no exception. All-wheel drive is optional on the Equinox, but only the Jeep Compass is available with four-wheel drive, giving it an edge on rough terrain. The Compass also offers the Trailhawk trim, which is specifically designed to help you take your adventures off-road.

Compare Performance

The Jeep Compass offers more horsepower than the Equinox. The 2.4L engine yields up to 177 horsepower to help you move your Jeep Compass along, which gives it a slight edge over the Chevy Equinox.

Compare Drivetrains

Like most models in the Subaru lineup, the Crosstrek comes standard with all-wheel drive. That's the only choice, and you don't have any other options. The Jeep Compass comes with front-wheel drive, which offers easygoing handling as you drive around Scranton, PA. You can also opt for four-wheel drive if you want more off-road capability, making the Compass a great choice if you don't want to be locked into only one drivetrain option.

Compare Performance

The 177-horsepower 2.4L engine is considerably more powerful than the 152-horsepower 2.0L engine that comes with the Subaru Crosstrek. Though the Crosstrek does offer a more powerful engine option, you have to climb the trim ladder to get to it. So, if you're looking for more strength right out of the gate, the Jeep Compass is the way to go.

Compare Cargo Capacity

Cargo space is one of the big draws of SUVs like the Compass and Crosstrek, but the Compass has more to offer. Even when you have all seats filled with passengers, the Compass supplies up to 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space. The Crosstrek only has 20.8 cubic feet of cargo space to spare, making the Jeep Compass the better choice for packing up for those adventures around Ithaca.

Compare Fuel Economy

The Jeep Compass and Ford Bronco Sport offer similar figures in terms of fuel efficiency, but the Jeep Compass favors the highway. If you're looking for a crossover that offers a bit better fuel economy to help you handle your commute, the Jeep Compass is a solid pick.

Compare Handling

If you want an adventurous vehicle that is also ready to handle your daily drive with ease, the Jeep Compass might be a better fit. The Compass comes standard with front-wheel drive, offering an easygoing drive and breezy handling. All Bronco Sport models come with four-wheel drive, which can make for a harsh drive on pavement.
