2014 Jeep Compass vs. 2015 Chevrolet Equinox Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Equinox, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Compass and the Chevrolet Equinox.

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). Clearly, the Jeep Compass is a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Equinox, when considering 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 Destination Charge for the Jeep Compass is much higher than that for 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
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Compass doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Equinox.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Equinox, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Compass as you will in the Chevrolet Equinox.

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