The Jeep Compass offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Patriot, 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 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

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. Both the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
