When you are in the market for a new vehicle, you might feel overwhelmed by all of the options available to you. SUVs are quickly becoming the most popular vehicle segment on the market because of their versatility, so it can be even more difficult to narrow down your options. That is why doing comparisons can be so helpful, because it allows you to put two seemingly-similar models up side by side to examine their differences and determine which one will be a better fit for you and your needs. This comparison looks at the base models of the 2018 Jeep Compass vs 2018 Toyota RAV4.
While the RAV4 offers a slightly larger engine and more storage space, the Jeep Compass offers more features related to comfort, convenience, and safety, all at a lower price point, making it the better option for consumers overall. The Toyota RAV4 offers up to 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space, compared to 59.8 cubic feet in the Compass, but the Compass has more standard features available to keep passengers comfortable. Let's take a closer look at some of the key differences between these two models!
