    As far as petrol automatic powertrain is concerned, Kick's 1.3 Turbo engine offers more torque and better torque-to-weight ratio. So it will offer better driveability compared to Compass's petrol engine. The Kicks turbo is also more fuel-efficient than the Compass.

    The Compass is certainly expensive enough to come across as one segment higher. But it has the features to somewhat justify the higher price tag too. And then the Jeep brand also carries some weight. But for regular driving, the Kicks should suffice for most buyers who are not too keen on the Jeep SUV vibe.
