2016 Honda CR-V vs. 2017 Jeep Compass Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Honda CR-V, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Compass will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Honda CR-V, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Compass.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Honda CR-V will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jeep Compass, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda CR-V carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is about the same width as the Jeep Compass. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-V, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Compass.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda CR-V transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Compass.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Compass, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Jeep Compass. With the Honda CR-V, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Compass.

Warranty
The Honda CR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Compass.
