The compact SUV class is one of the most popular in the automotive market, which makes it even more impressive when standout models rise above the rest. The 2018 Jeep Compass is an impressive compact SUV that offers luxury, comfort, and most importantly the Jeep Brand's rugged sensibilities. This vehicle gives you a uniquely capable ride that puts it ahead of other SUVs near Lorain.

At Kasper, we know that the Compass is one of your best choices in Sandusky, but if you need more convincing check out our blow-by-blow comparison of the Compass against the 2018 Toyota RAV4.

Power and Performance

The Jeep Compass comes standard with a little more power in its engine than the RAV4 with 180 horsepower against 176. This engine also pairs excellently with an available smooth nine-speed automatic transmission. The 2.4-liter Tigershark® engine also gives you better estimated highway fuel economy with 32 mpg against 30.

The Compass really leaves its mark with its off-road features like a powerful suspension system.  Amherst fans of manual transmissions will appreciate the Compass while the RAV4 offers exclusively automatic.


A variety of safety features in both vehicles shows that these are vehicles committed to safety which is commendable. Both have a comprehensive airbag system, powerful four-wheel disc brakes, brake assist, and traction control. Both vehicles received a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, so you know you're getting a secure vehicle near Vermilion. Check out the Compass's available suite of driver assist features if you're interested in some modern security.

Outstanding Features and Options

The multimedia system in the Compass gets an edge with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability, meaning it can seamlessly integrate your smart device into your drive. The Compass is also offered in a unique Trailhawk® model that gives you a powerful, off-road drive that easily outmatches the RAV4's capabilities around Norwalk.
