2018 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. 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
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Compass, making it more convenient to drive.

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 wider than the Chevrolet Equinox, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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.

Performance
The Jeep Compass has a little more 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.
