2018 Jeep Compass vs 2018 Toyota RAV4 near Long Island, NY

If you're looking for a comfortable and versatile new crossover SUV, let us tell you about two great new options. A notable presence in the SUV market is the 2018 Jeep Compass. The Compass has been greatly updated from the 2017 model and has excellent technical features. The Toyota RAV4, a similarly sized crossover, also offers new features such as high standard safety offerings. Both models should be evaluated so that customers can make an informed choice.

2018 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

All models feature a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (180 horsepower, 175 pound-feet of torque). Additionally, a six-speed manual transmission is standard for the Sport, with an option to select a nine-speed. Front wheel drive is also standard. The Trailhawk comes with all-wheel drive, as it is known for being more of an off-road version. The Compass performs well on the road, absorbing bumps for a smooth riding experience.

2018 Toyota RAV4 Power & Handling

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 has a 2.5-liter engine and is equipped with front-wheel drive. When compared with the Jeep Compass, it lacks off-road capabilities. However, the Adventure trim option offers more ground clearance. The RAV4 does not offer exceptional fuel efficiency unless purchasing the more expensive Hybrid option.

2018 Jeep Compass Features & Design

There are four clearly defined trim levels for the Compass: Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk. All models come with the very popular Uconnect system, Bluetooth, USB Port, and six-speaker sound. Higher levels have heated seats, keyless entry, and leather upholstery.  Additionally, popular added features to these trims include: Beats audio, sunroof, a navigation system, Cold Weather package, advanced safety features, and more. The Trailhawk stands out for its unique offerings and features. The Trailhawk only comes with all-wheel-drive and a nine-speed automatic, cruising on 17-inch wheels with off-road-oriented tires, a raised suspension, and Selec-Terrain system which enables it to face steep climbs and rocky terrain.

2018 Toyota RAV4 Features & Design

There are a dizzying total of nine trim options that come with the Toyota RAV4. None are compatible with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. A new exterior paint color option for this year's model is available in the form of Ruby Flame Pearl. The strongest feature for the RAV4 is that it comes with standard safety features such as a rearview camera, forward collision warnings, auto high beams, and cruise control. Despite having 9 different trims, there isn't enormous variation between each one.

Conclusions

Both of these SUVs are great options. We recommend the Jeep Compass for its clearly defined trim levels to choose from, level of comfort, and sleek shape. When you are ready to take a test drive, our staff will be here down at East Hills dealership.
