Of all the vehicles I have researched and written about, the 2019 Jeep Compass and the 2019 Honda HR-V are seemingly the most comparable! Both vehicles have proven that they are safe, fuel efficient, comfortable, and offer customers several options based on various models and trim levels. These smaller "sport utility" vehicles provide almost the same exact interior dimensions, although the 2019 Jeep Compass offers more room in the front seats while the 2019 Honda HR-V gives a little more room to passengers in the rear seats!

 

    As well as being closely comparable in the interior dimension's department, the fuel economy statistics are relatively the same! The 2019 Jeep Compass provides 23 miles per gallon in the city, and 32 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2019 Honda HR-V however gets an average of 28 miles per gallon in the city, and 34 miles per gallon on the highway! Both vehicles also only require regular unleaded gasoline as well. Regardless of which on of these SUVs you decide fits your lifestyle more properly, you will not constantly be stopping at the gas station!

 

    The engines that can be found under the hoods of these two vehicles are similar too! The Jeep Compass comes standard with a 2.4-liter Inline-4 engine that puts out 180 horsepower, while the Honda HR-V has a 1.8-liter Inline-4 engine that provides up to 141 horsepower. Because the drivetrain in the Jeep Compass puts out more torque than the Honda HR-V, the Honda will not generally feel as fast or powerful.

 

    The 2019 Jeep Compass has six different models to choose from (Sport, Latitude, Upland, Trailhawk, Limited, & High Altitude), while the 2019 Honda HR-V offers five (LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, & Touring), and each of these particular models come with different trim level options to meet all of your specific needs. Whether you are looking for something more basic with less "creature features" on the inside, or something that is fully loaded with all the technology you could want, both Jeep and Honda have you covered!

 

    Although these two 2019 vehicles have a lot in common, there are a few features that make each of them stand apart. For example, the Honda HR-V provides the "Honda Sensing for Safety" feature as well as an available navigation system! Also, according to newcars.com, the Honda has an overall safety rating of 5 stars, while the Jeep comes in at 4 stars overall. On the other hand, the Jeep offers "Off-Road capabilities" that the Honda does not, and also gives customers the option for available Adaptive Cruise Control with the "Stop and Go" feature.

 

    The price tag that comes with either of these two new vehicles will obviously play a major role in influencing your decision of which one to choose! Fortunately, the cost of the base models of these vehicles are quite close in comparison. The MSRP of the 2019 Honda HR-V comes in at $20,520, while the 2019 Jeep Compass costs $21,845. There is only one way to be sure that one of these vehicles is the perfect fit for your family and lifestyle. Get behind the wheel for a test drive, and see first hand which option you like more!
