Jeep India had launched the updated BS6 version of their popular mid-size SUV Compass in the market earlier this year. Both petrol and diesel version of the Compass are now BS6 compliant. The Jeep compass competes with cars like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier,and MG Hector in the segment. With the BS6 updates, Jeep had made some changes to the trim levels and the Compass is now available in Sport Plus, Longitude, Longitude Plus and Limited Plus trims. Jeep is now offering exclusive limited period offers on Longitude Plus variant of the popular SUV.
Jeep is offering the discounts on both petrol and diesel variant of Longitude Plus trim. The petrol automatic version of Longitude Plus attracts benefits upto Rs 1.68 lakh and the Longitude Plus diesel (manual transmission) gets benefits upto Rs 1.79 lakh. This according to the post is a limited period offer.
The petrol version of the SUV is powered by a 1.4 litre turbocharged engine that generates 160 Bhp and 250 Nm of torque. The petrol version is available with both manual and automatic gearbox option but, the current offer is valid on automatic variant only. The diesel version on the other hand uses a 2.0 litre turbocharged unit that generates 170 Bhp and 350 Nm of torque. It is also available with a manual and automatic gearbox option but the offer is applicable on manual transmission only.
It is the same diesel engine that we have seen in SUVs Tata Harrier and MG Hector. Jeep is currently working on a much needed facelift for the Compass SUV. The competition has grown tremendously over the years and the Jeep has not updated Compass even once since 2017. The upcoming facelifted Jeep Compass was recently spotted testing here in India and is expected to be launched in the Indian market later next year.
It is expected to get a revised bumper, headlights and grille in the front. Interior on the car might also see minor changes. It is likely to get the same engine engine and gearbox combination. Jeep also released a teaser image that says they’ll soon be launching the Night Eagle version of Compass in our market. Jeep is also working on a 7-seater version of Compass likely to be known as Grand Compass.
