The performance of both the vehicles is similar in most aspects when we talk about the base configuration. The Mazda CX-5 surely has an edge over the Jeep Compass. That said, the Jeep Compass lower curb weight gives it a slight power-to-weight ratio advantage over the Mazda CX-5. One thing to keep in mind is the CX-5’s optional engine which is more powerful than the Compass giving it a significant performance push. That said, the Compass offers a balanced ride and is suitable for those looking for a calm and casual everyday SUV.
The Compass has a long list of standard features on offer. Comfortable seating is taken care of with cloth upholstered seats, six-way manually adjustable front seats, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, two USB ports, a six-speaker sound system, and a rearview camera as standard features. Moving up the trim ladder will get you vinyl-cloth upholstered seats, eight-way power-adjustable heated & ventilated front seats, driver’s seat memory setting, leather-wrapped steering wheel & shift-knob, an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, a panoramic sunroof, HD Radio, and a nine-speaker Alpine premium audio system. Even though the CX-5 offers a similar list of features, the Compass still takes the lead thanks to the sheer number of configuration options it has to offer.
