Jeep and Nissan are two of the leading manufacturers in the automotive industry. Time and time again, they've impressed their loyal drivers with lineups that excel in performance, interior, and safety.
See for yourself when reading through this Jeep Compass vs. Nissan Rogue comparison. We at Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram have pitted these two models against each other to find out which one is better for drivers near Chicago, Skokie, Park Ridge, and Forest Park, IL. Keep reading to learn more!
Regardless of which type of vehicle you’re looking to buy, it’s common to consider how much power it will provide. After all, you’ll want to know you can get reliably from Point A to Point B, plus have enough oomph for any extra needs you may have, such as towing or off-roading.
First, let's look at what's under the hood of these two models. The Nissan Rogue has a 1.5L engine in all four of its trims that supports the model's 1,500-pound towing capacity.
The Jeep Compass, on the other hand, equips all seven trim levels with a 2.0L Turbo engine that helps carry 2,000 pounds of attachments when properly equipped. That 500-pound difference allows adventurous drivers to add on extra gear such as campers, small trailers, watercraft, 4-wheelers, and more.
However, if you’re hoping to go off-road or tackle difficult terrain, you may prefer the Jeep Compass. It offers available:
This Traction Management System features several modes to help control over different driving conditions: Auto, Snow, and Sand/Mud. The Trailhawk trim also includes Rock mode.
The Nissan does offer available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and five driving modes: Sport, Off-Road, Snow, Auto, and Eco. They personalize your drive but may not match the Jeep for seriously tough surfaces.
Now, let's see which model is the right fit for you and your passengers. After all, you and everyone on board—both models seat five riders—deserve to be comfortable.
What really impresses drivers are the available interior features offered by the Jeep Compass. These include available heating systems, such as heated front/rear seats and a heated steering wheel. Nissan also provides these same heating options.
When you’re on the road, you’ll want to remain informed, connected, and engaged. The Jeep Compass comes standard with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display—the largest in its class. This is your hub for all things having to do with driving and entertainment. The Nissan model comes with an 8-inch touchscreen and can be upgraded to one that’s nine inches, both significantly smaller.
The real standout, though, is Jeep's standard Uconnect® 5 system. This next-generation system lets you engage faster with your favorite music, navigation, and other applications while on the road.
Of course, no feature is more important than the ones designed to help protect you and your passengers. That’s why both Jeep and Nissan provide a variety of safety features to increase your peace of mind on the road.
The Jeep Compass and the Nissan Rogue line their interiors with advanced airbag systems to help in case the unexpected happens. However, the Compass goes the extra mile with its standard features, including:
It's true that these driver-assistive features are just the beginning. The Jeep model offers over 80 standard and available safety systems that are designed to help protect, prevent, and defend against road hazards. Other standard features in the Compass are echoed in the Nissan Rogue and its Safety Shield® 360 suite.
However, if you're looking for safety-evolving innovation, like the ParkSense® Front and Rear Park-Assist System, you may want to stick with the Jeep Compass.
We hope by reading through this comparison you've learned a thing or two about what the Jeep Compass and the Nissan Rogue have to offer. Although the Nissan is a solid pick, the Jeep Compass provides outstanding versatile performance and available features you'll want to experience for yourself.
