2014 Jeep Compass vs. 2014 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mazda CX-5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Compass and the Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
With the Mazda CX-5, 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 Mazda CX-5. 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 Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little narrower than the Mazda CX-5, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Jeep Compass is slightly shorter than the Mazda CX-5, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Compass has much lower torque than the Mazda CX-5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda CX-5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Compass will do just as well as the Mazda CX-5, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Jeep Compass has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Mazda CX-5. The Jeep Compass has less cargo space than the Mazda CX-5, 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 Mazda CX-5.
