Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Tucson offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Compass, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
The Hyundai Tucson 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). The Hyundai Tucson is somewhat more expensive 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 Hyundai Tucson carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Compass.

The Hyundai Tucson is a little narrower than the Jeep Compass, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Compass.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Compass, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass.

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