Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Nissan Rogue Sport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Compass as you will with the Nissan Rogue Sport, 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). The Jeep Compass is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Rogue 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 Nissan Rogue Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Compass is much wider than the Nissan Rogue Sport, 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 Nissan Rogue Sport.

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

Performance
The Jeep Compass has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

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

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 Sport. The Jeep Compass has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Warranty
