Comparing the New Jeep Compass to the 2017 Nissan Rogue

  • Higher Standards: When it comes to high standards, the Jeep brand excels; it just gives you more standard features that the 2017 Nissan Rogue either doesn't offer or wants you to pay extra for. For example, heated front mirrors keep ice from forming on your mirrors, and they're standard on the 2017 Compass, but you'll be paying extra for those on the 2017 Nissan Rogue. More than that, it also has more standard power, with an 180-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder beneath the hood, the 2017 Jeep Compass bests the 2017 Nissan Rogue's 170-horsepower 2.50liter 4-cylinder.
  • Off-Road Prowess: When it comes to going off road, the Jeep brand is internationally recognized as a leader, but when you consider the 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk®, designed and built for off-roading prowess specifically. It comes with the off-roading equipment you need factory installed, like the skid plates, specific approach angles, excellent ground clearance, and the signature ruby-red tow hooks you might know from other Trail Rated® Jeep brand vehicles. When you look to the Nissan Rogue, it offers an all-wheel drive (AWD), but that's about the only nod to off-road driving you'll find, though a roof rack is available as an option (it's standard on the Jeep Compass, though).

Comparing the New Jeep Compass to the 2017 Hyundai Tucson

  • 4x4 Supremacy: The good news is, both these SUVs offer you a 4x4 or all-wheel drive (AWD) option at every trim level, but that doesn't mean the systems are equally capable. In terms of price, getting into a 4x4-capable Jeep Compass costs $24,294, just a hair north of what it costs to get into an AWD 2017 Hyundai Tucson at $24,100; the difference, however, is the Jeep 4x4 system is quite superior to the AWD system available on the 2017 Tucson. Not only are Jeep 4x4 systems superior, the 2017 Jeep Compass offers two available systems, the Jeep Active Drive 4x4 System, or the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 System, which is standard on the 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk® trim. By contrast, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson offers Active Cornering Control All-Wheel Drive, which channels engine torque to the rear wheels while applying slight braking force to the inside rear wheel, which is clever, but still no match for a Jeep Active Drive 4x4 system.

Comparing the New Jeep Compass to the 2017 Ford Escape

  • Fuel Efficiency: If you're an SUV driver, fuel efficiency is at a premium, so it should be good to know that the 2017 Jeep Compass Latitude is more efficient than the 2017 Ford Escape S, with the former offering up an EPA-estimated 22/31/25 mpg city/highway/combined, while the latter sees an EPA-estimated 21/29/24 mpg city/highway/combined.
  • Spirit of Adventure: If you're sensing a theme, you're right-the 2017 Jeep Compass offers more off-road prowess than the 2017 Ford Escape as well. While the 2017 Escape does offer an all-wheel drive option, it still can't compete with what comes factory-installed in the 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk®.
