Subaru Crosstrek vs Jeep Compass Models Comparison in Huntington Beach, CA

Jeep is a brand that enjoys a reputation for all-terrain ability and toughness -- but these days the latest Jeep models are built for families and aren't engineered for true off-road toughness. Instead, choose Subaru and get the right combination of rugged ability and everyday practicality! We'll help you out by comparing the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek and 2020 Jeep Compass side-by-side on the page below.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2020 Jeep Compass: Size & Style

For passengers, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is the more comfortable choice. It provides 100.9 cubic feet of passenger space compared to just 99.6 cubic feet in the 2020 Jeep Compass. That might not sound like a lot, but the result is the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek provides 43.1" of legroom in the front seats. Just 41.8" of legroom in the front of the 2020 Jeep Compass and less hip room throughout the cabin mean that it's just not as spacious as the Subaru Crosstrek.

On the exterior, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek comes with superior styling and features, as well. Standard 17" alloy wheels are better looking and more durable than the 16" steel wheels that come standard on the 2020 Jeep Compass. And, unlike the 2020 Jeep Compass, the Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with roof rails and generous ground clearance so it's more capable of outdoor adventuring at the entry level.

Subaru Crosstrek Navigation

2020 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2020 Jeep Compass: Technology

Both these compact crossovers come standard with touchscreen multimedia systems, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for smartphone pairing. But, you can control the system in the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek with just your voice. A voice-activated navigation system is also available. Voice-responsive multimedia isn't standard on the 2020 Jeep Compass.

Furthermore, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek has some technology options you can't get on the 2020 Jeep Compass. LED Steering responsive headlights swivel as you steer for better nighttime visibility. And when backing out of a tight parking spot, available reverse automatic braking can help keep you from a fender-bender with unseen traffic behind you. Reverse automatic braking and steering-responsive headlights aren't available on the 2020 Jeep Compass at all.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2020 Jeep Compass: Performance

While four-wheel drive is a $1,500 option on the 2020 Jeep Compass, you get Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for all-terrain confidence as standard on the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek. That means you get improved grip and control in the rain and snow, on gravel or sand. Optional Hill Descent Control and X-MODE® low-friction surface optimization further prepare the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek for off-road travel -- and for less than the cost of a similarly capable 2020 Jeep Compass.

Furthermore, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is noticeably more efficient, particularly in the city! For everyday errands, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is the more practical choice. Yet it's still got tried-and-true Subaru toughness when you need it.
