2015 Jeep Compass vs. 2015 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Toyota RAV4. 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
With the Toyota RAV4, 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 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 Destination Charge for the Jeep Compass is much higher than that for the Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little narrower than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has a larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. 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 less cargo space than the Toyota RAV4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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