Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Rogue, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Rogue will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
The Nissan Rogue 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Compass will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Rogue. 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 Nissan Rogue.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little wider than the Nissan Rogue, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Jeep Compass, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Rogue.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Compass has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Rogue.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Nissan Rogue. The Jeep Compass has less cargo space than the Nissan Rogue, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jeep Compass comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Rogue.
