2017 Jeep Compass vs. 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Jeep Compass than the Chevrolet Equinox. The Chevrolet Equinox offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Equinox, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Compass, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Compass will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Equinox. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jeep Compass will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little narrower than the Chevrolet Equinox, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Jeep Compass, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Equinox.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Compass has much lower torque than the Chevrolet Equinox, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Compass has a lot less horsepower than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Chevrolet Equinox. The Jeep Compass has less cargo space than the Chevrolet Equinox, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jeep Compass comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Equinox.
