The Jeep Compass offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Renegade. The Jeep Renegade offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Compass as you will with the Jeep Renegade, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Renegade have similar Destination Charges.
