Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Venue 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). Clearly, the Hyundai Venue is a better financial choice over the Jeep Compass, when considering MSRP. 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 Venue carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Venue is much slimmer than the Jeep Compass, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Venue, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Jeep Compass.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Venue 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 Hyundai Venue and the Jeep Compass. The Hyundai Venue 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 Hyundai Venue than that of the Jeep Compass.
