Both cars share the same engines, but they use different automatic transmissions. Does that make a difference in the real-world performance?

In the latest edition of the Zig performance report, we line up the Jeep Compass and Tata Safari. While one might be a 5-seater and the other a three-row SUV, they have one thing in common: the engine. That said, both the cars here utilise different automatic transmissions. Does this element affect their real-world performance? 

We are going to find out that in this report. 

But before we push on, a quick spec check. The Compass and Safari are powered by the Fiat-sourced 170 PS 2-litre diesel engine. In the Jeep, this engine is coupled with a 9-speed torque converter automatic, while in the Tata, it is paired with a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque converter ‘box. Both cars here are front-wheel-drive, but the Jeep also offers you an optional all-wheel-drive system.

In the 0-100kmph run, the Jeep Compass managed to beat the Safari by nearly two seconds. But a more realistic way to point out real-world performance is in the roll-on acceleration run, where once again the Jeep Compass beat the Tata Safari by a slim margin. This is despite the fact that the Safari has a much more responsive automatic transmission than the Compass’ unit.
