Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the FIAT 500X, 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 FIAT 500X and the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500X as you will with the Jeep Compass, 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). Whether you pick the FIAT 500X or the Jeep Compass, 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. Both the FIAT 500X and the Jeep Compass have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500X is much slimmer than the Jeep Compass, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The FIAT 500X is slightly shorter than the Jeep Compass, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the FIAT 500X transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Compass.

Handling
The FIAT 500X has the same turning radius as the Jeep Compass, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the FIAT 500X will do just as well as the Jeep Compass, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the FIAT 500X and the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the FIAT 500X and the Jeep Compass. The FIAT 500X has significantly less cargo capacity than the Jeep Compass.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500X than that of the Jeep Compass.
