Competition

2021 Jeep Compass vs the competition

2021 Subaru Crosstrek — The Crosstrek is an excellent alternative that comes with all-wheel drive as standard as well as many safety features. 2021 Jeep Cherokee — Paying a bit more for greater refinement and a stronger engine could be a good call, like upgrading to the similarly sized Cherokee. Our article from 2018 explains the differences between the Compass and Cherokee. 2021 Kia Sportage — The value-rich Sportage provides a better on-road drive and a higher-quality interior than the similarly sized and priced Compass. Its warranty is also longer. Used Honda CR-V — Admittedly, there’s no rugged Jeep-like coolness to the CR-V. But if anyone is looking for a good, reliable, used compact crossover, this does the job. A certified pre-owned (CPO) version comes with a decent warranty.
