The Jeep Compass is one of the most lucrative choices in the SUV space right now and the American automaker hit the jackpot by getting the pricing right. The model competes against a host of rivals including the Hyundai Tucson, Mahindra XUV500 and even the Tata Hexa. In fact, the Compass is one of the top sellers at present, in a segment largely dominated by the XUV500.
The Jeep Compass SUV draws power from both petrol and diesel engines. Diesel power comes from the 2.0-litre MultiJet turbocharged engine tuned for 170 bhp and 350 Nm of torque, while paired to a 6-speed manual. The petrol engine, on the other hand, is a 1.4-litre turbo unit that churns out 160 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. The petrol is offered with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed, twin-clutch automatic transmission options. The diesel automatic is on its way as well and is expected to go on sale sometime later this year.
India serves as the global manufacturing hub for the Jeep Compass right-hand drive variants, and this has led to the automaker offering a competitive pricing on the Compass. The model is produced at Fiat's Ranjangaon facility, near Pune and is exported to a number of markets including the UK, Japan and Australia.
The ownership though seems to be an association of the Jeep brand with the actor. Last year, the automaker made a similar tie-up with actor Saif Ali Khan, who owns the Grand Cherokee SRT perforamnce SUV. At present, the Compass is priced between Rs. 15.16 lakh and Rs. 21.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
