All-New 2017 Jeep Compass vs 2017 Honda CR-V near Manchester, NH

There are two excellent SUVs for 2017 that are likely on your radar. The first is the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass, which has received a complete redesign and has been built for on-road refinement during every drive. It offers the ability to go off-road with the phenomenal Trailhawk trim, making it a perfect option for adventurous drivers. Competing against the Compass is the all-new 2017 Honda CR-V, which has also been completely redesigned. The redesigned CR-V continues to be a family-friendly option that delivers capability and comfort. If you are curious to learn more about these two models, and which one is best for you, continue reading below!

All-New 2017 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

The Compass is a fantastic option if you want capability in a variety of weather conditions, along with refinement during the daily commute. It is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and features standard front-wheel drive. However, customers can instead opt for all-wheel drive, which is especially helpful when taking on snowy roads. The 2.4-liter engine has 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Transmission options will include a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic, or a nine-speed automatic depending on the chosen drive system. The off-road oriented Trailhawk trim supports drivers who want to take on muddy, off-road environments by adding a number of unique mechanisms and advanced all-wheel drive.

2017 Honda CR-V Power & Handling

Honda offers their CR-V with two engine options, but the more powerful engine is only available on a higher trim. The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 180 lb-ft of torque and 184 horsepower. It is available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive and linked to a continuously variable automatic transmission. The available engine is a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which only increases power to 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. The CR-V is a vehicle that we recommend keeping on the pavement, though it does offer some support for your light-duty off-road needs.

All-New 2017 Jeep Compass Features & Design

Each Jeep Compass is well-equipped, offering a level of affordability and versatility that is unparalleled. There are four excellent trim levels called the Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk. The base Sport is equipped with a Uconnect system that has a 5-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, and a variety of audio inputs. The interior is easy to configure for cargo hauling, with Jeep including a convenient front-passenger seat that can fold completely flat. Standard safety equipment includes a rearview camera, trailer-sway control, hill-start assist, and a driver's knee airbag. There are many ways to further customize the Compass, with Jeep offering standalone equipment and various packages.

2017 Honda CR-V Features & Design

There are four available trims offered with the CR-V: the LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Honda has gained a reputation for offering very few customization options with their vehicles, and this is true for the CR-V. The base LX trim has the features you would expect with an entry-level model, like cruise control, a four-speaker audio system, and a height-adjustable driver seat. The LX has a 5-inch color LCD screen, but it is not a touchscreen. Standard Honda CR-V safety features include an electronic parking brake and a backup camera.

Conclusions

If you are looking for a dynamic crossover SUV that provides capability for every environment, whether that means on the highway or off the pavement, you will love the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass! It is well-equipped at every level, incredibly affordable, and imbued with the classic Jeep sense of adventure. The all-new 2017 Honda CR-V lacks the adventure and customization options found in the Jeep, making it a less exciting vehicle for drivers who need fun and functionality.
