The experience of being with this vehicle irrespective of the variant is cool and if you feel different from the lot that is for sure. Driving this vehicle is a pleasure in Automatic transmission. If you drive in a sedate manner in city, you can go for short quick power boost for 50 -100 meters really fast in the city, usually wont get more than 100 meters free lane in metro cities. It feels heavy in the steering wheel due to its hydraulic power steering (Seltos, Creta & sedan car usually get Electronic power steering which feels very very light as compared to Compass even below 40 km/hr speed.)
For the manual variants clutch is deep and hard with little bit of turbo lag you may feel. One can get good mileage in manual transmission obviously depending on driving conditions (Driving style roads condition proper vehicle maintained)
This vehicle is not comparable to Seltos ,Creta, Xuv, Tata.
Jeep has it vehicles overpriced because it doesn't offer basic day to day features in this Sports variant. A few feature to name are Auto A/C, Cruise control, Auto folding ORVMS, Fog lamps should be bare minimum offerings in this price of approx 20.5 lakhs on road(accessories worth 50k additional).The other features such as push start button, sunroof, auto dimming ORVM, parcel tray ,LED tail lamps, roof rails are also missing, but one can think to go ahead without them for this Sports Model.
For the above features Jeep has added additional 5.5 lakhs price and featured Longitude Model which is not worth the price at all in my opinion.
This is where Jeep is losing its market share. If any one has to put in 25+ lakhs for base models they would go ahead with 28+ Lakh model. Again then who are ready to put in 28 lakhs would hardly consider Compass and may go with VW T-Roc, or Skoda Octavia, kodiac, karoq.etc and the list may not end..
So Jeep compass is a very good product but price and features mismatch is the most buyers issue.
