The compass has the exact same footprint as the Caliber, which is NOT a small hatchback. It's actually pretty big, but it's hatch is just a different shape than the Compass. They are literally the same vehicle, just the Compass is way better, IMO. (I like the Patriot, myself, but if she doesn't want an SUV looking car, then the Compass is it)
I was looking at price point; the Subaru Impreza might be a good one to go with. The compass will still be cheaper on the wallet though. Maintenance, Insurance and MPG I think takes a hit too with the AWD. The Compass comes in FWD or "4x4".
Edit - Also 2014 models will be getting 6-speed automatics to replace the CVT's as well; in both Patriot & Compass.
Won a Dodge Dart. It's MINE nao!
