I know that the Jeep Compass and Honda Civic belong to different classes, but I cannot decide which would be a better fit for my daily commute that has me do 50-70 km on the highway. As we are a family of five, I’m looking for a comfortable five-seater. My preference is an automatic gearbox, along with good mileage and low maintenance cost.

AAA If you are driving mainly on the highway, there is no question that the Compass is a better choice. Firstly, the ride quality and high-speed stability are superb. It has a nice torquey engine that makes overtaking quite easy, and then you have the ground clearance of an SUV, which is always useful when tackling a bad patch on the highway or tall speed breakers. The Civic has a nicer interior, feels more upmarket, and is much easier to drive thanks to its light controls, but in the end, it is a city car and feels best in an urban environment.
