The DSG is in a class of its own. No other dual clutch system matches it when it comes to performance. ZF's have but not under all applications.

The engine on the Jeep is superb. It is the gearbox that kinda kills the experience.

I don't think it's been produced either. Not even there in Jeep's media fleet (we asked for it).

With paddle shifters, you don't have to take your hand off the steering wheel. Plus, it's more or less expected in premium cars (even the cheaper Civic had it way back in 2006!).

The engine contributes to the slow response times because of turbo lag.

Yes, you are correct. But currenly, FPT has sold all the contract rights to Schaeffler in marketing & selling to any one else worldwide. Recently, in an Industry conference here in Pune, Schaeffler was showcasing the MultiAir in hardware for OE customers!

It might not be available in the press fleet but they're being produced for sure and there are quite a few on the road.

I'm really disappointed with the Compass Petrol AT. The DCT isn't that great and we had almost bought one for my dad's close friend if not the gearbox didn't act as a fly in the ointment. So, we shifted the booking to a Limited 2.0D and bought her home a couple of days back and we're glad that we bought this over the AT.

I really had a lot of hopes with this DCT + turbocharged-petrol combo. I was really hoping something great as it has a whole lot of tech involved in it. Sadly, it disappointed us and IMO the 1.4 TJet is a lot involving to drive.

So, it's the diesel ONLY if it's a Compass and I'm eagerly waiting for the Diesel AT and hope that it's a good package and also hope that it's also available in the topend 4x4 trim.

Out of the 10389 Compasses sold so far only 1294 are petrol AT (assuming petrol MT is not available to buy). Which is nothing great.

I guess most are waiting for the Diesel AT. Any idea when that would be arriving?

I have test driven the petrol auto twice but did not find the gear indicator.That is surprising considering I can clearly see in the pics in this review.I could only see D and not D2/3 etc.

Do we need to activate that in settings?

If I remember correctly, it's in the screen settings, for the top middle portion.
