Jeep Compass vs Toyota RAV4
If you’re looking for a crossover SUV, the Jeep Compass and the Toyota RAV4 are two appealing options. Although they have a lot in common, such as off-road capability and spacious interiors, there are several important differences to consider when choosing between them.
Drivers in Somerset, New Bedford, and Fall River can find out more about these crossover SUVs with our new Jeep Compass vs. Toyota RAV4 comparison that our team here at Stateline Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram has put together.
Both the 2019 Compass and the 2019 RAV4 come with a 4-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. There are also three different transmissions you can choose among for the Jeep, including the available 9-speed automatic transmission. The Toyota only comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
All-wheel drive is available for both vehicles, though the systems are quite different. The RAV4 all-wheel drive system can split power between the front and rear axles at low speeds, but it’s designed more for inclement weather than off-road trails. The new Compass lives up to the Jeep name, however, with an advanced all-wheel-drive system, low-range gearing, and plenty of off-road upgrades to tackle the trails.
Interior Comfort and Space
Both the Compass interior and the RAV4 interior offer spacious cabins with comfortable seating. The heavily padded seats provide plenty of long-distance comfort, and the high-quality upholstery options are soft and comfortable. The new Compass has more headroom up front and legroom between both rows, however, which allows adult passengers to ride comfortably in the rear seats.
Both vehicles have large cargo bays that can easily haul your camping gear, golf clubs, or other sporting equipment, as well as low load floors for convenience loading and unloading. Several storage compartments can be found within the cabins also, giving passengers a place to stow their personal belongings.
The new Compass and the RAV4 come with plenty of exciting technology features, such as sharp infotainment systems and Bluetooth® connectivity. Toyota’s Entune™ infotainment system is menu-intensive and requires some work to learn, however, while the Jeep Uconnect® system is considered one of the best on the market. In addition, the Entune™ system isn’t compatible with Android Auto™, so there’s no simple way to enjoy the media from your Android smartphone to enhance your driving experience.
Both vehicles pack a lot of safety features, such as available Blind-Spot and Cross-Path Detection Forward-Collision Warning. These features work together to provide more awareness of the area around your vehicle, giving you alerts to other vehicles, obstructions, or pedestrians that may be in your path. Such features are helpful in avoiding collisions completely or lessening their impact and severity.
