2018 Jeep Compass vs. 2017 Jeep Patriot Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Patriot than in the Jeep Compass, 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 Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Compass as you will with the Jeep Patriot, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Jeep Compass is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Patriot. 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 Jeep Patriot.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Compass is much wider than the Jeep Patriot, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Compass takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Patriot.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Compass transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Patriot.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Patriot is clearly the choice over the Jeep Compass for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Compass has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Patriot.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot. The Jeep Compass has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Patriot.

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