2017 Jeep Compass vs. 2017 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-5 than in the Jeep Compass, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mazda CX-5 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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 Jeep Compass will cost more in terms of transportation costs than 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
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Compass doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-5.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has the same turning radius as the Mazda CX-5, so they both maneuver the same 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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Compass as you will in the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
The Jeep Compass comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
