Jeep India along with the parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) India is set to launch Compass SUV. Online bookings have started and the SUV is expected to come to Indian roads by August 2017. The ‘Made-in-India’ Compass is expected to come at a price range of Rupees 18 Lacs to 24 Lacs .
Aspiring customers can pre-book the compact SUV by logging into the company’s official website or by visiting the nearest FCA or Jeep-exclusive showroom for a token amount of Rs 50,000. While the company has officially started bookings for Compass on Monday, June 19, dealerships had started bookings last month.
“To harness the great demand for the Jeep Compass, we have executed a customer outreach across 21 cities at 26 shopping malls across India. We are already receiving an overwhelming response to our new SUV. We have pulled out all stops to deliver the highest quality standard on the Jeep Compass and we are here to set a benchmark in the Indian SUV space,” said Kevin Flynn, President and Managing Director, FCA India.
Under the hood, Compass will get a 2.0-litre MultiJet diesel engine and a 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo petrol engine options. The diesel mill will develop 170hp and 350Nm of torque mated to a six-speed manual transmission. On the other hand, the petrol mill will belt out 160hp. A six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic will be offered with the petrol mill.
