Compare the new 2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Jeep Compass models at Carlsen Subaru serving San Francisco, CA

Crossover SUVs have become more popular than ever recently, and the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek is the epitome of a crossover. It has car-like handling, a compact enough footprint for driving around the city (while still being spacious inside), and the versatility that comes from standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

Of course, the Subaru Crosstrek isn't the only crossover on the market. It faces competition from the likes of the 2019 Jeep Compass, which has a similar price. They may be in the same segment, but a comparison will show just how much more the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek offers. Take a look below to see how the two compare; then, head to Carlsen Subaru for a test drive.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Jeep Compass: Dimensions & Capacity

Crossover SUVs are sometimes also called compact SUVs, because they generally have a small footprint that makes them more convenient for city driving. Though both of these crossovers have this small footprint, the Subaru Crosstrek has an interior with more passenger volume--including more headroom and more legroom in the front. The Jeep has slightly more cargo space, but the Subaru Crosstrek more than makes up for that with standard roof rails that are great for carrying extra cargo. While some Jeep Compass models have roof rails, they're not available at all on the entry-level trim.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Jeep Compass: Tech Features

The Subaru Crosstrek is outfitted with stunning technology on every trim level. Its standard STARLINK™ Multimedia system sets it apart with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto for easy connectivity. The Jeep Compass comes standard with a less impressive 5-inch touchscreen; furthermore, the two lower trim levels don't have Apple CarPlay™ or Android™ Auto at all; you have to upgrade twice to get access to these convenient features.

Compare 2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs Jeep Compass Performance Features

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Jeep Compass: Performance Specs

When it comes to versatile performance, Subaru pulls ahead. You might assume that the Jeep Compass is equipped for off-road performance; however, unlike the AWD Subaru Crosstrek, the Jeep Compass comes standard with front-wheel drive (4WD is a pricey available upgrade). The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek is equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive at every trim level, and available features like X-MODE® (which adjusts the AWD system to perform even better on low-friction surfaces) make it even more capable of off-road fun.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Jeep Compass: Safety Ratings

Your family's safety is a top priority for Subaru, and the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek has the ratings to back it up. Not only did it earn a perfect five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but it also earned the 2019 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety! Compare this to the 2019 Jeep Compass, which got a four-star overall safety rating from NHTSA and no award at all from IIHS, and you'll see that Subaru is the safe choice.


Compare 2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs Jeep Compass Driver Assistance Technology

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2019 Jeep Compass: Driver Assist Technology

As a way to provide further protection, Subaru has developed EyeSight®, a suite of driver assist technology features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and Pre-collision Braking. You'll find many of the same features on the 2019 Jeep Compass, but there's a notable difference. EyeSight® is available on even the entry-level 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, while these features aren't available at all on the entry-level Jeep Compass.
