We recently traded in a 2007 Suzuki SX4 for a 2008 Jeep Compass with lower mileage. The Jeep Compass is a little larger but is much more luxurious without costing a lot more than the Suzuki (approximately $1,000 more). The seats are wider and higher with better low and middle back support. The driver's seat adjusts up and down in height (as well as the customary backward and forward), affording an improved view. Our Jeep Compass has a center console and cruise control (neither of which we had in the 2007 Suzuki). The center console (which can be moved forward or backward) makes the use of cruise control very comfortable, because the driver's right arm can rest on the console. The center console also affords plenty of additional storage. My husband uses an electric scooter (due to extensive back surgery) which separates into several smaller parts for transport. It barely fit into the cargo space of the 2007 Suzuki. The Jeep Compass has much more room in the back cargo space, with plenty of room for his scooter and room to spare for groceries. The back seats are also much more comfortable and have more leg room than the 2007 Suzuki. The Jeep Compass' gas mileage is comparable or better than the 2007 Suzuki's but the Compass is much quicker when merging into traffic on the tollways or when a little extra burst of power is needed, such as in changing lanes. We are totally impressed with this car and can highly recommend it.
I wasn't looking for a Jeep. I was looking for a Honda CRV or maybe a Volvo or possibly a Passat station wagon. When I saw the Compass, though, I had to at least give it a test drive because the price was so reasonable. Needless to say, I fell for it quickly. My husband and my kids love it too. It's gas mileage is better than expected, it is comfortable & easy to drive, and maybe it's because I have the more expensive version, but I like the interior (and so does everyone who drives it). I have always had a preference for foreign cars, but I am officially a converted Jeep fan.
At first I was not a Compass fan. After owning one for a month, I love it!
