Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Compass and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Convenience
With the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Compass, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. 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 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Compass transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
