2021 Jeep Compass All You Need To Know

Jeep entered the Indian market in recent years and has made a strong impact ever since. The Jeep Compass was their first offering for the SUV-hungry population of India and it worked like a charm. People instantly started liking the vehicle and it kickstarted the journey for Jeep. It has a typical SUV-like boxy design and looks urban which appeals to most buyers in the segment. Has a spacious and premium interior and is loaded with tech which is necessary nowadays. Moreover, pricing for the Jeep Compass was appropriate when it was launched and was a major factor that contributed to its success. Let’s ponder over the different variants on offer and evaluate which one should you buy.

Looking at the powertrain setup in the Compass, it is offered with a 2.0-litre diesel and a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol. Both of the engines have great driving dynamics and both are fun to drive. These engines do not feel underpowered at any given moment and have enough oomph whenever required. Jeep Compass has a great balance between highway and city driving and can do both duties effortlessly. It has brilliant ride quality and feels planted at triple-digit speeds. It all boils down to your daily running. If you have a daily run of more than 50 kms, then you should opt for the diesel as it will provide a better experience overall, otherwise, petrol would be the optimal choice.

When talking about the transmission options, the 7-speed DCT gearbox paired with the turbo-petrol option is a slick-shifting and silky-smooth gearbox. It provides an effortless driving experience and with the 9-speed automatic mated to the diesel, it has greater flexibility. If you are planning to buy the Jeep Compass, the automatic gearbox options should be your choice, regardless of the powertrain you go for.

When talking about the pricing, it could have been a bit more value for money for the customers. It sits a segment higher than other mid-size SUVs but directly can be pitted against them. Considering that fact, the price for the Compass is on the higher side and could have been a bit lower. Nevertheless, the premium interior and quality materials inside, along with the well-built and urban exterior justifies the extra price. The most value for money for the diesel variant would be the Limited 4X4 (O) Diesel AT as it will come with all the bells and whistles along with an automatic gearbox. Similarly, the most value for money variant for the petrol would be the Limited (O) DCT Petrol as it only makes sense to buy an automatic gearbox for a car of this price.
