Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Mazda CX-30. The Jeep Compass offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Mazda CX-30 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 Jeep Compass is somewhat more expensive than the Mazda CX-30. 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 Mazda CX-30.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Compass is much wider than the Mazda CX-30, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Compass takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mazda CX-30.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Compass doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-30.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has a larger turning radius than the Mazda CX-30, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Jeep Compass has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-30.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Mazda CX-30. With the Jeep Compass, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mazda CX-30.

Warranty
The Jeep Compass comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-30.
