How does the new 2017 Subaru Crosstrek compare to the 2017 Jeep Compass?

How Does the Design of the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek Compare to the 2017 Jeep Compass?

When looking at the exterior design of the new 2017 Subaru Crosstrek and the 2017 Jeep Compass, there are a few important distinctions to note beyond the appearance. The price tags of these two crossover SUV models are similar, but look at what you get for the money. At the entry-level, the Jeep does not come with basic things like a key fob to lock and unlock the doors. This makes a bit more sense when considering that the entry-level Jeep Compass doesn't even come with power locks. In fact, you'll have to look at expensive options if want things like power mirrors or windows. All of this and more is standard on every new Subaru Crosstrek. While the price tags may be similar, the standard features you get in a new Subaru Crosstrek clearly offer more value than the Jeep.

How Does the Performance of the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek Compare to the 2017 Jeep Compass?

When you first glance at the numbers on paper, it may seem like the new 2017 Subaru Crosstrek offers similar performance as the 2017 Jeep Compass. However, when you get behind the wheel, significant differences become clear. Part of this is because the new Subaru Crosstrek is equipped with the renowned BOXER® engine. Instead of the traditional inline 4-cylinder that stands vertically like the one found in the Jeep, the Subaru engine sits flat with horizontally opposed cylinders. This provides for smoother operation and a lower center of gravity for superior handling with a higher ground clearance in the new Subaru Crosstrek. What's more, the Crosstrek is also equipped standard with 4-wheel disc brakes. This greater stopping power will cost you extra as another upgrade in the Jeep Compass which comes standard with rear drum brakes. When equipped with an automatic transmission, you'll also find that the Subaru Crosstrek gains much better fuel economy. One test drive, and you'll know that the new Subaru Crosstrek offers far better performance for your money than the Jeep Compass.

How Does the Safety of the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek Compare to the 2017 Jeep Compass?

When comparing safety, the difference between the award-winning 2017 Subaru Crosstrek and the 2017 Jeep Compass isn't even close. When the independent experts at the IIHS subjected both models to a series of demanding crash and safety tests, the new Subaru Crosstrek earned top marks for crash protection and collision avoidance. The Jeep cannot claim such prestigious safety achievements. What's more, standard features like daytime running lights and symmetrical all-wheel drive enhance your ability to safely avoid surprises while maintaining precision control behind the wheel of a new Subaru Crosstrek. The Jeep Compass isn't available with the precision of all-wheel drive, though you can spend more money for 4-wheel drive. The safety of you and your loved ones is nothing to compromise on, and the new Subaru Crosstrek that has earned top safety scores every year since its introduction is clearly the safest choice.
