2017 Jeep Compass vs. 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Mitsubishi Outlander will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
With the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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). Whether you pick the Jeep Compass or the Mitsubishi Outlander, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Outlander. If you go with the Jeep Compass, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

Handling
The Jeep Compass has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Compass has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Jeep Compass has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Compass has less cargo space than the Mitsubishi Outlander, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Compass is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
