Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda HR-V offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Compass. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda HR-V and the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda HR-V 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda HR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Compass. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda HR-V carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
Since the Honda HR-V is much slimmer than the Jeep Compass, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Honda HR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Compass.

Drivetrain
The Honda HR-V has much lower torque than the Jeep Compass, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda HR-V has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda HR-V and the Jeep Compass. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Honda HR-V as you will in the Jeep Compass.

Warranty
The Honda HR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Compass.
