The Compass has been one of the most awaited launches of 2017. The company has managed to generate a lot of hype around the product, even before the launch. While the company is yet to reveal the pricing of the vehicle, dealers have started displaying the Compass and have also started taking bookings for the new Compass.
Bookings began on the 20th of June and it is believed that in a 3 day period itself, bookings have crossed 1000 units, which is impressive. Bookings can be done at any dealer by paying a token amount of Rs 50,000, while the official pricing is expected to be revealed later next month.
The Compass will be on offer in 2 engine options, a petrol and a diesel. The petrol is the 1.4 liter turbo unit which produces 160 Bhp and 250 Nm, while the diesel is a 2.0 liter multijet unit which produces 170 Bhp and 350 Nm. While the petrol comes with the option of either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT, the diesel is only on offer with a 6-speed manual as of now. An automatic variant is expected to follow sometime later on. In the beginning, only the diesel variant will be on offer.
There are a total of 5 variants that are on offer on the Compass. The base variant is the Sport, followed by the Longitude, the Longitude (O), the Latitude and the Latitude (O). All variants are equipped with ABS, EBD, TCS, dual airbags and disc brakes all over.
While the base version will get a 5″ touch screen system, the higher end variants get a larger 7″ one with Apple Car play and Anrdoid Auto compatibility. The base trim gets 16″ alloys, where as the remaining models get 17″ ones.
