2018 Jeep Compass for Sale in Mount Pocono

Many drivers in the Mount Pocono, Stroudsburg, and East Stroudsburg areas are turning to the compact SUV for its versatility. At Ray Price Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we think this is a great class of vehicle, with quite a few top-performing models to choose from, such as the Jeep Compass and Mazda CX-5.

We wanted to figure out which of these SUVs has the most to offer area drivers, whether they're traversing the city streets of Scranton or climbing a mountain path in Tobyhanna. To find our answer, we compared the Jeep Compass vs. Mazda CX-5 and found ourselves a winner.

Jeep Compass vs Mazda CX-5 Handling Capabilities

2018 Jeep Compass Driver-Assist FeaturesOne of the reasons many local drivers prefer an SUV is because they usually offer an all-wheel drive (AWD) or 4-wheel drive (4WD) system that can help them take on mountainous terrain and snowy winter weather.

Both the Jeep Compass and Mazda CX-5 have these capabilities, offering part-time systems that can shift between front-wheel drive (FWD) and 4WD or AWD seamlessly, depending on your conditions.

The Compass allows you to further optimize your performance with the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, which allows you to choose between four or five modes for improved handling capabilities. These modes are: Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud. Rock mode is also available with the Jeep Active Drive Low system, which includes a 4WD Low mode for especially tough terrain.

Without a similar system, drivers in the Mazda CX-5 may have a more trouble when taking it off-road or commuting to work in the snow.

Connectivity and Infotainment

Whether you're commuting to work, taking the kids to practice, or heading out on a weekend road trip, it's always nice to have a way to stay connected while on-the-go. You'll find that capability with both the Jeep Compass and Mazda CX-5.

Both SUVs allow you to wirelessly connect your smartphone using Bluetooth® to make phone calls, respond to text messages, and stream music.

The Jeep Compass offers even more connectivity, allowing you to fully integrate your smartphone using Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. These systems let you access apps optimized for use while behind the wheel, including navigation, which is displayed on the available 8.4-inch screen.

Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ aren't yet available on Mazda vehicles, so drivers may find their ability to stay connected slightly hindered.

Jeep Compass and Mazda CX-9 Cargo Space

2018 Jeep Compass Cargo SpaceWhile the Jeep Compass and Mazda CX-9 are both considered compact SUVs, they both offer plenty of cargo space for you to load up while prepping for your next outing.

They're both two-row SUVs with enough seating for five passengers. However, if you really need to pack in a lot of stuff, you can fold the rear seat flat to reveal even more space-59.6 cubic feet in the Mazda CX-5 and 59.8 cubic feet in the Jeep Compass.

With the Compass, however, you may be able to maximize this space a bit better with an available Adjustable Cargo Floor feature. This allows you to deepen the load floor to accommodate taller objects. You can also lift it up to reveal under-floor storage. This is ideal for keeping eggs safe from heavier objects after a trip to the grocery store.

The Mazda CX-5 doesn't offer this kind of versatility, unfortunately, so drivers may be more limited in how they load their cargo area.

Compass vs CX-5: Our Winner

After comparing the Jeep Compass vs. Mazda CX-5, we found that the Compass has more of what drivers in the Scranton, Stroudsburg, and Mount Pocono areas need.
