Honda CR-V Vs. Jeep Compass

New CR-V Inventory

Why the Honda CR-V is a Better Choice Than the Jeep Compass

Smaller SUVs are a smart choice for drivers in Kokomo for a lot of reasons. If you find yourself in the market for one, odds are good that you will take a look at both the Honda CR-V and the Jeep Compass. While these vehicles both certainly have good points, at Kokomo Honda you will find that the CR-V beats out the Compass in a few key ways.

First, the CR-V has a more powerful engine. All models are powered by a turbo 1.5L four-cylinder that gives you 190-horsepower as well as 179 lb-ft of torque. The Compass, on the other hand, has a standard 2.4L four-cylinder that only produces 180-horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The CR-V also gives you a standard continuously variable transmission, something drivers in the Fishers area tend to like because it increases fuel efficiency.

The second reason the team here at Kokomo Honda near Lafayette, IN thinks the CR-V is the better choice is, in fact, because of how fuel-efficient it is. Front-wheel-drive models give you 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. As for all-wheel-drive, the numbers dip only slightly, going down to 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Compare this to the Compass, which only gives you 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway for front-wheel-drive models. It is easy to see how the CR-V will save you money in the long run.

Finally, the CR-V offers a long list of standard driver aids. They include automatic high-beams, road departure warning, traffic sign recognition, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and a collision mitigation system. Marion, IN drivers will find these features on all trim levels of the CR-V. The only standard driver aid you will find on the Compass is a rearview camera. There are some features available, but they are part of packages that add to the price tag. Even the upper trims do not add any to their lists of standard features.
