2017 Jeep Compass vs. 2017 Dodge Journey Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Dodge Journey. The Dodge Journey will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
With the Dodge Journey, 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 Dodge Journey. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Journey.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little narrower than the Dodge Journey, 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 Dodge Journey.

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Journey is clearly the choice over the Jeep Compass for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Compass has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Journey.

Utility
The Jeep Compass has less seating than the Dodge Journey, making the Dodge Journey the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Compass has less cargo space than the Dodge Journey, 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 Dodge Journey.
