Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Outlander than in the Jeep Compass, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Outlander 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 Mitsubishi Outlander, 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). Whether you pick the Jeep Compass or the Mitsubishi Outlander, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little narrower than the Mitsubishi Outlander, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Jeep Compass, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Jeep Compass has the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Outlander, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Compass will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Compass and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Compass doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Jeep Compass has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Compass has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.
