2018 Jeep Compass vs. 2018 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota RAV4, with comparable 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 Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
The Toyota RAV4 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Compass, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little wider than the Toyota RAV4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Compass and the Toyota RAV4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has the same turning radius as the Toyota RAV4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Compass and the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Toyota RAV4. The Jeep Compass has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
The Jeep Compass comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota RAV4.
