2016 Honda CRV vs 2016 Jeep Compass
We knew that last year’s Honda CRV would be successful, thanks to all of the upgrades and enhancements that came with its facelift. But winning the Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year award rocketed it to frontlines. It was one of the most popular crossover vehicles on the market last year, and the success only looks to continue. We thought we’d take a look at it in comparison to another midsize crossover by pitting the 2016 Honda CRV vs 2016 Jeep Compass to show just how superior it truly is.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda CRV
Glancing upward to the table at the top of this page, it becomes pretty obvious fairly quickly that the Compass just cannot keep up with the CRV. Right away in combined fuel efficiency, the Honda CRV can travel 100 kilometres utilizing 1.2 litres of fuel less than the Jeep Compass. Plus, you’ll enjoy every one of those kilometres a bit more behind the wheel of a CRV thanks to its 27 extra horsepower. With superior power and fuel efficiency, there isn’t much else you can ask for.
Except, of course, for the most important aspect of a crossover, its cargo capacity. Behind the back row of seats alone, the CRV offers 37.2 cubic feet of space to pack in whatever cargo you might need. In and of itself, that’s pretty impressive. But when you notice that that is a whole 14.5 cu. ft. more than the Compass offers, it becomes even more impressive. And when you drop the seats flat, the vehicle opens up even more cargo capacity, hanging onto its advantage this time in the way of 7.2 cu. ft.
