Chevy’s Cruze hatchback model, while capable, is no match for actual SUVs like the new 2017 Jeep® Compass, available now at Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram. The Compass has earned praise for its good value and refined six-speed automatic transmission, but it’s also got the Cruze beat in a lot of other ways.
For starters, the Jeep® Compass offers more interior space, specifically in terms of headroom, shoulder room, and legroom for the second-row occupants. The new 2017 Compass is also more powerful, producing 158 horsepower from its 2.0-liter engine, compared to the 153 horsepower from the Cruze’s 1.4-liter.
The 2017 Jeep® Compass is also incredibly affordable, having earned the 2017 ASG Best Economic Performance Award for having the lowest cost of ownership among all crossovers. The Compass has actually earned a fair share of awards: it was named the Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year in the Compact Utility Vehicle segment by the Northwest Automotive Press Association and the 2017 Activity Vehicle of the Year by the Texas Auto Writers Association.
