Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Jeep Compass. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Compass, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox 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. If you go with the Chevrolet Equinox, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Compass.

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

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Compass.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox 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 Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Compass. The Chevrolet Equinox has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Compass.
