Should You Buy Jeep Compass Petrol Or Diesel?

With a kilometre-to-breakeven figure of 3.69 lakh km to 5.39 lakh km, we do not recommend buying the Jeep Compass diesel, especially if you are trying to save money. However, it’s worth noting that only the diesel powertrain comes with the choice of 4-wheel-drive. Additionally, the Trackhawk variant of the Jeep Compass is only available with the diesel engine. In terms of automatic transmission, the petrol engine comes paired with a quick-shifting 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission while the diesel comes with a more reliable but less fuel efficient 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
