Are you reaching for a compact SUV that offers a powerful performance on the roads of SK? Then you need to take a peek under the hood of the new 2021 Jeep Compass. Compared to the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek, it is easy to see which model is superior.
Every Jeep Compass is equipped with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine that pushes out 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. FWD models come with a 6-speed automatic transmission, and those built with 4WD use a smooth-shifting 9-speed. Meanwhile, Engine Stop/Start technology ensures an exceptional fuel economy rated at 10.6 L/100 km in the city and 7.6 L/100 km on the highway. It can also tow up to 907 kg (2,000 lbs) with no problem.
On the other hand, the Subaru Crosstrek is fitted with a standard 2.0-litre four-cylinder that delivers a mere 152 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. Its available continuously variable transmission (CVT) fails to achieve the dynamic handing of the Compass’ 9-speed; and, as for hauling, it can only manage to pull an attachment weighing up to 680 kg (1,500 lbs). The difference will be keenly felt on the trail.
