6. Jeep Compass $19,295
A list of utility vehicles wouldn’t be complete with at least one Jeep on it, so here is one of the most value-friendly Jeeps available, the Jeep Compass.
While the Compass comes in a wide range of trims, the least expensive model is equipped with front-wheel drive and a manual transmission. This earns a 23 /29 mpg city/highway, thanks to the cars thrifty 2.0-liter engine which puts out a meager 158-hp. The base Compass comes with a few features that should help sway buyers, such as hill-start assist, and their Uconnect multimedia system.
