2016 Jeep Compass vs. 2016 Jeep Patriot Review

Comparison Review

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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

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

If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Compass will do just as well as the Jeep Patriot, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot.

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

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