Compass has been the SUV that changed the destiny and help establish Jeep as a brand in India. It was one of the best selling SUV when launched. But, over the years many new SUVs like Tata Harrier, Kia Seltos were introduced in the market and the demand for this SUV started going down. Jeep dealers in India are currently offering discounts on various trims of Compass as part of their Year End Sale. Maximum discount on Compass offered by Jeep in December is Rs 2.05 lakh. Discount amount is different for different trims.
Let’s start with lower variants. The Sport Plus (diesel) variant of the Compass currently attracts a maximum benefit of Rs 1 lakh. Longitude (O) diesel variant of the Jeep is getting benefits up to Rs 50,000. As we move towards the higher trims, discount also increases. The Longitude (O) variant which comes with petrol engine and automatic gearbox gets a maximum discount of Rs 1.25 lakh. Jeep is also offering a maximum discount of Rs 2.05 lakh on the Limited (O) petrol Automatic version.
Apart from these, Some Jeep dealership at select location are providing discounts on TrailHawk variant which comes with a BS6 engine. A maximum discount of Rs 30,000 is available. Among all these competition, Jeep has managed to sell Diesel Limited Plus trim completely. This trim has been completely sold out on most of the locations and for that reason no discount is currently available on this model.
The Jeep Compass is currently offered with one petrol and one diesel option. There is a 1.4 litre, 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that churns out 158 Bhp of power along with 250 Nm. Then there is a 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder turbo Multijet diesel engine that churns out 170 Bhp of power along with 350 Nm.
The 2.0L diesel engine is the same that we have seen in other SUVs like Tata Harrier and MG Hector. The only difference is that they are tuned differently in those SUVs. It is available with both petrol and diesel manual gearbox, whereas the automatic is only available in petrol variant. The recently launched Trailhawk edition of the SUV is also powered by the same 2.0 litre multijet engine but it is BSVI compliant. Power output remains the same at 170 Bhp of power and 350 Nm of torque. It comes mated to a 9-speed DCT transmission and is equipped with and an all wheel drive system with a 4×4 lock mode. The TrailHawk also gets multiple off road modes, better suspension and more ground clearance.
