The 2020 Mazda CX-9 is a crossover SUV that rewards drivers more than it does other passengers.

Pros
Very attractive
Well-done interior
Good safety gear
Engaging responsiveness

Cons
Lousy infotainment
Cramped third-row and cargo space
Limited lineup

By:

Mazda has given the CX-9 several upgrades for 2020, not least of which is a standard suite of driver-assistance features called i-Activsense. The bundle includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. Also now standard are heated front seats with power adjustments for the driver, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic headlamps, and heated exterior mirrors. Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature models now come with a larger 9.0-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a new key-fob design, and power-adjustable second-row seats.

Pros
Snappy driving dynamics, great fuel economy, premium cabin.

Cons
Small cargo bay, third row is only for kids, low towing capacity.

The 2020 Jeep Compass receives several minor updates this year. The majority of the changes include newly available features for the cheapest Compass—the base Sport model. It can now be ordered with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and more with the Safety and Security package. Likewise, the Advanced Safety package unlocks even more desirable content such as adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning, a leather steering wheel, and more.

Pros
Truly capable off-road, copious technology options, handsome Jeep styling.

Cons
Clumsy automatic transmission, easily becomes overpriced, just get a Jeep Cherokee.

The 2020 Jeep Compass comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed manual.Minor revisions to feature availability.

PROS
Roomy seating for such a small vehicle
Tech interface is attractive and easy to use
Trailhawk version is highly capable off-road

CONS
Four-cylinder engine's weak power delivery
Limited cargo space
Nine-speed transmission's sluggish response

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Jeep Compass stays true to the brand’s off-road formula, but bends toward usability rather than capability.

Pros
Handsome exterior
Generous, standard 7.0-inch touchscreen
Rugged Trailhawk option
Good customization options
Respectable fuel economy, for now

Cons
Indecisive 9-speed automatic
Active safety features a spend-up option
Mixed crash-test scores
Three will fit in the back in a pinch, literally
