Jeep Compass vs Nissan Rogue: Personalized Performance

First, let's look at what's under the hood of these two models. The Nissan Rogue offers a 2.5L engine that supports the model's 1,350-pound towing capacity. The Compass, on the other hand, offers seven different trim levels, one of them being the mighty Compass Trailhawk.

The Trailhawk comes standard with a 2.4L Tigershark® engine that helps carry 2,000 pounds of attachments when properly equipped. That's a 650-pound difference that allows adventurous drivers to add on extra gear like campers, small trailers, watercraft, 4-wheelers, and more.

The Rogue offers drivers five driving modes to switch into when traveling. Meanwhile, the Jeep Compass Trailhawk takes this concept and refines it with the standard Selec-Terrain® toggle system.

The modes offered by the Jeep are specific to tough terrains such as, snow, sand, mud and rock. Once a mode is selected, your model automatically adjusts its shift patterns, engine performance, and torque distribution for optimal traction.

Unfortunately, the Nissan Rogue does not recognize driving modes outside the general "off-road" mode, and therefore is best used for more traditional roadways.

Jeep Compass vs Nissan Rogue: Inside Inches

Now, let's see which model is the right fit for you and your passengers. Luckily, both the Jeep and the Nissan can easily seat up to five passengers at a time.

What really impresses drivers are the available interior features offered by the Jeep Compass. These include available heating systems, like heated front/rear seats and a heated steering wheel. Nissan also provides these same heating options.

In the Compass, upgrade to the available 10.25-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster touchscreen display-your hub for all things having to do with driving and entertainment settings.  At most, the Nissan model can include a 9-inch touchscreen, a significantly smaller display.

The real stand-out is Jeep's standard Uconnect® 5 system. This system lets you engage with your favorite music, games, navigation, and other applications while on the road.

Both models are able to stream music using Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ for your favorite road playlists.

Jeep Compass vs Nissan Rogue: Fixed Safety

The Jeep Compass and the Nissan Rogue line their interiors with advanced airbag systems to help in case the unexpected happens. However, the Compass goes the extra mile with some newly added standard features, including:

  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: A feature that detects when your vehicle is approaching a vehicle ahead too quickly and can apply brake pressure if needed.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection: A monitoring system that alerts you when other vehicles are in your blind spot zones.
  • Active Lane Management: A system that provides visual and audible alerts when you're drifting into another lane. It can also apply gentle steering correction to help avoid a collision.

It's true that these driver-assistive features are just the beginning. The Jeep model offers over 75 standard and available safety system that are designed to help protect, prevent, and defend against road hazards. Other standard features in the Compass are echoed in the Nissan Rogue and its Safety Shield® 360 suite.

However, if you're looking for safety-evolving innovation, you may want to stick with the Jeep Compass.
