The Jeep Compass is finally coming to India and it will make its official debut here on April 12. Revealed in 2016, this will be the first locally assembled Jeep product for India and will be put together at the parent company Fiat’s retooled plant at Ranjangaon.

This latest generation Compass has been designed to look like a mini- version of the much larger Cherokee SUV. It follows most of latter’s design cues and thus manages to combine butch looks with modern styling. The cabin is standard Jeep fare and gets things like climate control, touchscreen infotainment system, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable ORVMs as well as power windows all around.

Globally, the SUV is offered with three petrol and two diesel engine options. However, for India, we believe that the engine options will be one petrol and one diesel, both of which will get AT/MT options. Both models are expected to get AWD a.k.a Jeep Active Drive on at least one variant.

The Jeep Compass is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 20 lakh to Rs 25 lakh putting it in competition with a range of vehicles like Skoda Superb, Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and the Chevrolet Trailblazer. This will be an important vehicle for Jeep with regard to its Indian operations as this will be their first volumes model and if successful, it  may prompt the American SUV maker to bring in more locally assembled models for the Indian market.
