Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The redesigned 2017 Jeep Compass is much improved over its predecessor. It's a good choice if you want a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can still handle a dirt road.Jeep produced its previous-generation model for the first part of the model year and then switched over to the fully redesigned Compass. The first one suffers from poor performance, a low-quality interior and a rough ride, among other faults. We don't recommend buying the "old" Compass.
The new Jeep Compass, however, is a much more competitive small crossover. Jeep made the new Compass more comfortable and enjoyable to drive on the street, where it knows that owners will spend most of their time.

Pros
Solid interior space for such a small vehicle
Highly capable off-road for a small crossover
Rugged Jeep styling is unique in the segment

Cons
Weak power delivery; you're always dipping into the throttle
Hard to find a truly comfortable seat position
Previous model's poor performance, ride comfort and refinement

Forget what you knew about the old Jeep Compass; this latest model is thoroughly modern, even if it doesn't exactly move the bar far forward in its segment.In its first generation, it went down in history as one of the most unloved crossovers on the road from day one. But that's the past and, aside from its badge, the Jeep Compass is all-new for 2017.

Likes
Old Compass? Put out to pasture
No more CVT
Trailhawk toughness
Mini Grand Cherokee looks inside and out
Comfortable ride quality and good handling

Dislikes
Priced like a larger crossover
Narrow inside
High cargo area liftover
Mediocre visibility
Could use more power

The Renegade is more Wrangler-focused, with lots of right angles and round headlights, whereas the Compass is clearly taking styling cues from the Grand Cherokee, so it’s more sleek and progressive.Indeed, you could argue the new Compass’s design looks more traditionally “Cherokee” than the current small Cherokee does. Dimensionally, the Compass has been engineered to fill a relatively narrow space in between the Renegade and Cherokee.The new Compass is a global vehicle.

Pros
Crisply styled, off-road capable, nimble handling

Cons
Lethargic transmission response, touchy brakes

The 2017 Subaru Outback is an extremely versatile, rugged, compact SUV that's relatively efficient compared to other crossovers.The types of people who have Tevas and "dress Tevas" already know, but for the rest of us, the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek is the automaker's smallest crossover SUV—a Swiss Army approach to automaking.

Pros
Go anywhere...
Go everywhere...
Go whenever...
And with whomever you want.

Cons
But you won't get there quickly...
And it might be loud inside...
Without a whole lot to look at.

The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek ranks 8 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek delivers what subcompact SUV shoppers want – all-wheel drive, lots of cargo space, high-tech features, and good fuel economy. However, its underpowered engine lessens its overall appeal.

Pros
Generous cargo space
Roomy seats
Athletic handling
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Underpowered engine

By: 
usnews.com

For 2017, the Subaru Crosstrek offers a new trim level, the 2.0i Premium Special Edition. Highlights include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and ambient cabin lighting. The Crosstrek Hybrid has been discontinued.

Pros
All-wheel drive and tall profile combine for strong off-road ability
Offers adult-sized front and rear legroom and headroom
Achieves good fuel economy for a rugged all-wheel-drive car
Big hatchback utility means room for loads of lifestyle gear

Cons
Underperforming engine makes Crosstrek one of slowest in class
CVT exacerbates the engine's droning sounds
Infotainment interface isn't as user-friendly as many competitors'
