2018 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. 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Compass as you will with the Mazda CX-5, 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). 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 wider than the Mazda CX-5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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
In terms of towing capacity, the Mazda CX-5 is clearly the choice over the Jeep Compass for pulling heavy loads. 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.
