The 2014 Mazda CX-5 vs. the 2014 Jeep Compass

The crossover market is pretty competitive these days, and while Bradenton and Tampa drivers sure have a lot of choices when they’re looking for a new family vehicle, we think the 2014 Mazda CX-5 is one of the best. Priced at $22,795 (MSRP), the CX-5 has room for the whole family, giving drivers a powerful, fuel efficient crossover that has no trouble going head to head with competing models.

And as we said, there are quite a few competitors out there. How does a vehicle like the 2014 Jeep Compass stand up to the CX-5? Let’s take a look.

Fuel Economy

Not only is the 2014 Mazda CX-5 one of the most affordable crossovers available today at $22,795, but it’s also one of the more efficient models. If you were to drive home the Compass, you’d only get an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city, but the CX-5 gets 32 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in the city for efficiency savings that will add up quickly.

Vehicle Features

One of the things we love the most about the Mazda lineup is it simply gives drivers more in the way of standard features and options. Here are some amenities that are available on every CX-5 that you either won’t find or will need to upgrade for on the Compass:

  • Keyless entry
  • Universal garage door opener
  • Remote start
  • Panic button/alarm
  • Navigational system
  • Automatic headlights

Passenger and Cargo Space

More than just features, the Mazda crossover gives drivers more room as well with 103.8 cubic feet of passenger space to the Jeep’s 101.3 cubic feet and 34.1 cubic feet of max cargo volume to the Compass’s 22.7 cubic feet of storage space.
