2015 Jeep Compass vs. 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Compass and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Compass will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander. 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. The Jeep Compass is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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 Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

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