Jeep Compass is a hot selling SUV, and as is the case with all hot selling cars, discounts are not available. But Jeep is making an exception for Indian customers due to the ongoing ‘Jeep 4X4 month’ that the American SUV giant is celebrating globally. As a part of these celebrations, Indian customers who are looking at the Compass 4X2 Limited models can choose to upgrade to the Limited 4X4 model by paying just Rs. 50,000 extra over the regular 4X2 diesel models. The Compass 4X2 Limited variants are priced between Rs. 19.21 lakh – 19.91 lakh. The Compass 4X4 Limited variants are priced between Rs. 21.18 lakh – 21.91 lakh. This scheme will run from 4th of April, until the 30th of April.
So, by allowing customers to upgrade to the top-end models at just Rs. 50,000, Jeep India is offering a discount of up to Rs. 1.5 lakhs. This is a considerable amount on a hot-selling SUV. The Compass’ diesel variants are powered by a 2 liter Fiat Multijet turbocharged diesel engine that outputs a peak power of 170 Bhp while peak torque is rated at 350 Nm.
A 6 speed manual gearbox drives the front wheels on the 4X2 variants while all four wheels get torque in the 4X4 variant. Jeep also sells petrol versions of the Compass. The petrol variants use a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine with 160 Bhp and 250 Nm outputs. 6 speed manual and 7 speed twin clutch automatic gearboxes are on offer. A front wheel drive layout is standard on the petrol variants.
Within months from now, Jeep will introduce a new, top-of-the-line variant of the Compass called the TrailHawk. The TrailHawk variant will be loaded with features that make it suitable for off roading. The model will also get a 9 speed automatic gearbox sourced from ZF.
