Some car dealers are known to go the extra mile to make the purchase experience special for customers, especially when it comes to celebrities. Landmark Jeep, a Jeep dealer in Delhi, decided to give Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu a surprise while delivering her Compass SUV. Just before the SUV’s delivery, the Bollywood actress was treated to a quick dance by the staff of the Jeep dealership. The staff of the dealership danced to popular Bollywood songs from movies that Taapsee Pannu has acted in. The actress was all smiles while receiving her Jeep Compass, which is said to be a gift from Taapsee for her younger sister. Check out the video below.
Joining the club of Jeepers, Taapsee Pannu bought a Jeep Compass and gifted to her beloved sister Shagun Pannu on her birthday! We hope that the new wheels bring her all the good luck and a lot of wonderful adventures.#JeepLife #OIIIIIIIO #LandmarkJeep #GroupLandmark #YouDriveUs

Notably, Landmark Jeep is the same dealership chain that was involved in a controversy soon after the Compass’ launch, where a customer was roughed up by a sales representative. Now though, the clock seems to come a full circle with the Jeep dealership going the extra mile for a happy customer. Coming back to the Jeep Compass in question, the SUV that the actress has bought is the Limited Plus Diesel model, which is priced at around Rs. 26 lakhs, on-road Mumbai. It’s powered by a 2 liter Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel engine with 170 Bhp of peak power and 350 Nm of peak torque.
A key feature on the Limited Plus trim is the presence of a panoramic sunroof, which really transforms the luxury quotient inside the SUV, making it feel quite high-end. The Compass Diesel is offered with both front wheel drive and four wheel drive layouts, and the SUV recently received a top-of-the-line TrailHawk trim, which gets a lot of off road goodies. The Compass TrailHawk Diesel gets a 9 speed automatic gearbox on the TrailHawk trim, and soon this gearbox will also be offered on other variants.
The SUV is also sold with a petrol engine: a 1.4 liter turbocharged unit with 160 Bhp-250 Nm. The petrol engine gets two gearbox options: a 6 speed manual and a 7 speed twin clutch automatic. However, it gets only a front wheel drive layout. Meanwhile, Jeep has launched the BS6 version of the 2 liter diesel engine on the TrailHawk trim, and in the coming months, this engine (which is more refined than the BS4 unit) will be offered on the regular Compass Diesel as well. Over the past few months, Jeep India has delivered the Compass SUV to a range of celebrities, mainly from Bollywood. Notable Compass owners in India include Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Sara Ali khan.
