I found the following review on autotrade.. Interior As we alluded to, the Cherokee may be larger on the outside, but the Compass actually has some advantages inside. Chief among those is cargo capacity, where the Compass possesses 59.8 cu ft. of maximum space, while the Cherokee has 54.9 cu ft. With the seats up, it's 27.2 cu ft. in favor of the Compass versus the Cherokee's 24.6 cu ft. All those figures are actually on the small side for a compact SUV, but it's a difference you really notice in person, as the Compass' cargo area is noticeably wider and more usable. You can slide the Cherokee's back seat forward to gain cargo space, something not possible in the Compass, but doing so reduces rear legroom. As for that legroom, the spec sheet says the Cherokee has two more inches, but we didn't find that in person. If anything, the Cherokee's chunkier seats might actually result in less room when taller drivers are up front. Rear shoulder and head room are also identical in both SUVs. ****** Why is the cherokee have a smaller inteior but is the next level UP Jeep. Most folks get these Jeeps for daily use like a RAV4. Very few folks will take these jeeps on anything offroad except a gravel road. Why have 2 vehicals that almost identical to each other. Unless you realy need the power of the 3.2 V6 it loos like the Compass is the better deal!
