Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Compass, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X1 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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 BMW X1 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jeep Compass, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
The BMW X1 is a little narrower than the Jeep Compass, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW X1, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Compass.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Compass, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Compass.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X1 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Jeep Compass. The BMW X1 has less cargo space than the Jeep Compass, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
