What a Tata Safari owner thinks about the 2021 Jeep Compass 4×4 [Video]

Tata launched their flagship model Safari in the market earlier this year. The SUV is based on Harrier which is a popular 5 seater SUV in the market. Both Tata Safari and Tata Harrier are front wheel driver SUVs and do not come with AWD or 4×4 even as an option. The only car in the segment that offers 4×4 is Jeep Compass. In comparison to Safari, Jeep Compass is a 5-seater SUV and earlier this year, Jeep launched a facelifted version of the Compass as well. Here we have a video where a Tata Safari owner shared his experience with Jeep Compass 4×4.

The video has been published by The Safari Traveller on their YouTube channel. In this video, the Safari owner is with his friend who bought the 2021 Jeep Compass 4×4 few months ago. He starts by asking why he finalised Jeep Compass. The Jeep Compass owner says that he had considered Tata Harrier and Jeep Compass when he was planning to buy an SUV.

He did his research and became part of several SUV owners group to finalise things. Tata had not launched Safari at that time and he started leaning a bit more towards the 4×4 version of Jeep Compass. When he went to buy Jeep Compass, the dealership advised him to wait for couple of months for the facleifted version. He waited for the same and finally took the delivery of the top-end diesel automatic 4×4 jeep Compass in June.

Vlogger starts by looking at the exterior and finds it premium. On the inside, Jeep is offering a premium looking cabin. In comparison to the pre-facelift model, the 2021 model is a huge improvement. The vlogger liked floating type touchscreen infotainment system, electrically adjustable seats with memory function, fully digital instrument cluster and so on.

Tata Safari owner really liked the touch response on the entertainment screen. Jeep is also offering a fully digital high resolution instrument cluster. Vlogger also liked the leather wrapped dashboard which was making the cabin a lot more premium than Safari. The rear seat space was decent and it was also offering ample leg room and headroom. Safari is a bit more taller and that converts to a airy cabin and more headroom.

Vlogger then takes the Compass for a spin and finds it a lot more comfortable to drive. At lower speeds, the steering was light while at higher speeds, it becomes heavy. It felt easier to live with in city traffic conditions when compared to Safari. For a 5 seater SUV, Jeep is also offering decent amount of boot space as well.

Vlogger then asks his friend – Jeep Compass owner whether he has anything in his mind about the Compass that he felt could have been improved. The Jeep Compass owner responds to this by saying that he feels that the gearbox response at lower speeds can be improved and the 4×4 is only available with the top-end diesel version with an automatic gearbox which makes it extremely expensive when compared to other SUVs. Other than that, he is happy with fit and finish and features on the Jeep Compass.
