Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) had started testing the Jeep Compass on Indian roads recently. Now, the latest set of spyshots show many features from the cabin of the compact SUV for the first time.

A host of comfort, safety and convenience features can be seen on the test mule. The most evident ones seen in the pictures are a touch screen system, compass, automatic climate control, parking sensors, engine start-stop push button, 12V charging socket, AUX/USB input etc. The centre console gets a knob for the 4WD settings, through which owners can select the drive modes - snow, sand, mud and auto. Despite the compact size of the SUV, the Compass seems to offer generous cabin space and also gets a rear blower for the rear occupants.

The India-spec Compass is expected to be powered by a 1.4-litre Multiair petrol engine and a 2.0-litre Multijet II diesel mill. The petrol unit might produce around 140bhp of power, while the diesel unit will generate around 170bhp. A six-speed manual gearbox is expected to be standard as seen in the spy pictures and the carmaker might also offer an optional eight-speed automatic for the petrol and a nine-speed automatic transmission on the diesel.

As sources suggest that this is the quality testing of the product, the India-made Compass might soon be unveiled for the Indian market. It will be produced at FCA’s manufacturing facility at Ranjangaon in Pune. We can expect it to be launched by mid-2017 and then it will compete with the Hyundai Tucson and the Honda CR-V in India.
