Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota RAV4, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Compass will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
With the Toyota RAV4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Compass will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little wider than the Toyota RAV4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Jeep Compass is slightly shorter than the Toyota RAV4, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Compass has a little less horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Compass doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Toyota RAV4. The Jeep Compass has less cargo space than the Toyota RAV4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
