2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2015 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 Hyundai Tucson, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Hyundai Tucson, 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 Hyundai Tucson is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Compass. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Tucson carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is a little wider than the Jeep Compass, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Compass.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Hyundai Tucson does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Jeep Compass.

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has the same turning radius as the Jeep Compass, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Hyundai Tucson as you will in the Jeep Compass.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Tucson than that of the Jeep Compass.
