Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Jeep Compass 4x4?

The Volkswagen Tiguan carries almost iconic status in this category. It has a spacious and practical interior, is good to drive and comes with plenty of standard kit. It’s pricey, even used, but it’ll hold its value well and should prove reliable. It’s certainly a more sophisticated product than the Compass.

The Volvo XC40 was our overall What Car? Car of the Year when it was first launched, and we still love it now. It’s very grown up, with a range of punchy and refined (and fairly economical) engine options, it’s solidly constructed  and has a lovely interior, with plenty of soft-touch materials. It’s classy and good looking, and comfortable too.

Overview

The Jeep Compass looks good and has impressive off-road credentials, but its poor road manners and noisy engines mean it's ultimately off the pace

  • Good off-road ability
  • Spacious interior
  • Refinement very poor
  • Small boot
  • Not great to drive
