One of the fastest growing segments, both in terms of the number of models and popularity among drivers, in the automotive industry is the compact SUV. More and more drivers are deciding to turn in their bigger and bulkier SUVs for the smaller but more efficient compacts or choosing to forgo the smaller sedans for more space but similar efficiency in the SUV. The growth has led to the segment becoming one of the most crowded and competitive.
We create these model comparison pages so that drivers can see how models in the most competitive segments directly compare to one another. For this comparison, we're going to be looking at two of the most popular compact SUV models, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and the 2018 Jeep Compass. To gauge which model gives drivers more value, we're going to compare the two models fuel economy, interior space and safety rating.

|102 Cubic Feet||Passenger Volume||100 Cubic Feet|
|38.4 Cubic Feet||Interior Cargo Volume||27.2 Cubic Feet|

It's easy to see why both compact SUVs are so popular among drivers! Both offer impressive measurements and specifications that make them valuable models in their segment. However, when you directly compare the two models, it's clear that the 2018 Toyota RAV4 holds the slight edge over its Jeep Competitor.
Both the RAV4 and Compass offer impressive figures when it comes to fuel economy, but, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 does so while also offering more interior space when it comes to both passengers and cargo. A few cubic feet may not seem like much, but when you have a full load of passengers or cargo, every little bit counts!
Also, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 outdoes the 2018 Jeep Compass when it comes to safety with its crash-test ratings, which we believe is what's most important. The RAV4 not only has outstanding crash-test ratings but also some of the most advanced safety and driver-assist technology for avoiding accidents and collisions. Available features include:
