How many of you know that Jeep Compass Petrol AT has a kickdown mode?
Usually cars have a button for sports mode, In our JCs, the accelerator is used for this.
The final 5% of the accelerator has a kickdown mode – you can feel it with your foot and hear a mild click when you engage it. You have to press the accelerator all the way in and then push again further till you feel a click for kickdown mode, and when you do so, the gearbox will aggressively downshift not just one or two gears, but at times even three.
Present in all automatic JCs. If you are talking about other automatics, there are many who does not have this. Not at least in the 20 Lakh+ priced automatics that I owned. In our JCs, we can particularly feel a click when you engage it.
There is a description about this in the Team BHP Official review as well.
