The lower price tag of the Compass SUV will be possible because Jeep decided to localise most of its parts in India at the FCA’s Ranjangaon plant. The reports state that Jeep will introduce the new Compass in three variants which include Sport, Longitude and Limited variants.

While the Compass takes its styling inspiration from the bigger Grand Cherokee SUV but under the hood, it will most probably get the 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine which produces 165PS of power and 350Nm of torque. The engine will be paired to a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic transmission depending on the trims. Hopefully, to truly bring out the capabilities of the SUV, Jeep will offer it with an all-wheel drive system as well.

If we talk about styling, then Compass gets the muscular appeal but it also receives a boxy design. The front profile gets the signature 7 toothed grille while towards the rear the Compass gets LED elements in the taillamps. The SUV showcased at the Auto show gets black-silver finished alloy wheels. Which definitely looks bold and rugged at the same time. Expect the interior to also be well equipped with all the luxury bits which will include a U connect touchscreen infotainment system positioned in the middle of the dashboard, infact this is the only Jeep SUV which will get an option of 3 different touchscreen infotainment system, it also gets a sunroof as well.

Jeep Compass

Jeep Compass

The Compass is not a Jeep as we know it. This American 4x4 has steered away from its roots and is more of a crossover or a softroader which is actually based on a car. Jeep has definite plans to come to India and while it is pretty sure that the Grand Cherokee would be the first of the American SUV’s which will come to India, there is every chance that if the response to the Cherokee is good, we could see other Jeep products make their way into India. While the Wrangler is a proper 4X4 SUV, the Cherokee is at the other end of the spectrum and if launched it would be priced around 20lakhs. The Compass is an important model for the all-American brand and was the first Jeep to be built since the merger of Fiat with the parent company Chrysler. It is also one of the first cars from the manufacturer to be sold without all-wheel drive. The Compass aims at attracting a younger audience and has definite potential in our market since we see Jeep as an aspirational brand.
