News - Jeep Compass rolls out in India at prices starting from Rs.14.95 lakh

The most anticipated SUV of the year, Jeep Compass was officially launched in India on July 31st 2017. Being a locally assembled SUV from Jeep was one of the reasons that paved way for excitement towards this launch. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles had launched two vehicles from the same brand last year, but with a heavy price owing to the fact that they reached India through the CBU route. As a result, these vehicles did not fare well in the Indian market. This was when the company announced its decision to locally manufacture an SUV for retailing not just in India, but also exporting to all right hand drive markets. Now, the wait has come to an end and Jeep Compass rolls out with an affordable price tag with all components of a premium SUV.

Jeep Compass comes available in three trims named Sport, Longitude and Limited in both petrol and diesel options. Now let us take a detailed look at each of the variants.

Sport:

Being the base model, Sport is available in two variants- a petrol and a diesel with six speed manual transmission. Exteriors depict a perfect SUV with muscle, aerodynamics and premium looks. The Sport trim comes with the seven slat grille, halogen headlamps with an LED lighting strip, electrically operated ORVMs, 16-inch five spoke all-black steel wheels and so on. On the safety front, it gets dual airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control etc. while interiors have a 5 inch U-Connect infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity on the dashboard with all other premium features.

The Sport trim of Jeep Compass is powered by a 1368cc petrol engine and a 1956cc diesel engine in two variants respectively. The 1.4L Multiair Petrol engine produces 162bhp worth power and 250Nm of peak torque while the 2.0L Multijet Diesel engine delivers 173bhp and 350Nm of torque. The fuel efficiency figures are claimed to be around 17.1kmpl for the Diesel variant and fuel tank capacity is 60 litres. Jeep Compass Sport comes with disc brakes on all wheels for braking power.

Both the variants under this trim are priced Rs.14.99 lakh and Rs.15.49 lakh respectively.

Longitude trim gets all the exterior features on Sport as well as few additional ones like projector headlamps, automatic front cornering and rear fog lamps, keyless entry, 17 inch five spoke silver alloy wheels and rear parking sensors. Dual tone cabin comes with a 7 inch U-Connect infotainment system compatible to Apple Car Play and Android Auto, climate control, push button start etc. In terms of safety, Jeep has loaded the Compass with more than 50 safety features. The EPB (Electronic parking brake) engages automatically in times of carelessness like seat belts unbuckled or doors not properly closed.

Longitude is available in two variants, both under Diesel powertrain option. The 1956cc 2.0L Multijet Diesel engine that powers the Compass Longitude and Longitude (O) produces 173bhp and 350Nm of torque delivering a fuel efficiency of 17.1kmpl. Both variants are priced at Rs16.49 lakh and Rs.17.29 lakh respectively.

Rear parking camera and Electronic stability control are safety features worth mentioning. ESC (Electronic Stability Control) takes charge of the vehicle at all uneven and slippery terrains by engaging features like Hill Assist, ABS, all-speed control and so on to give utmost protection to the passengers inside the SUV, thereby leaving no room for panic. Six airbags that include full length air curtains for front and rear passengers ensures safety at its best.

The all season tyres do not wear out in any season and are claimed to be durable and resilient. Inside the cabin, the seats are given sky grey finish with plush leather to guarantee comfort throughout the journey. Leather wrapped multifunctional steering wheel, U-connect infotainment system with 7-inch display unit, six speaker audio system and customizable instrument cluster are few premium features in this new SUV. Boot capacity is 438 litres and that means good storage for an entire family, whether it is a weekend getaway or a long drive.

Limited trim comes available in six variants of both petrol and diesel options. The 1.4L Multi Air Petrol engine in both Limited and Limited (O) with seven speed DDCT produces 162bhp and 250Nm of torque. The 2.0L Mulitjet diesel engine comes in 4x2 and 4x4 options in both Limited and Limited (O) with 6 speed manual transmissions making it altogether 6 variants from this trim alone.
