2017 Jeep Compass

Jeep’s much talked about debut in India last year with two of its iconic models – Wrangler Unlimited and Grand Cherokee – was a stepping stone in Fiat’s India strategy. Carrying a lofty price tag, both the SUVs cater to the elite class that accounts for a small share in the Indian market. Taking this into consideration, the company is planning to bring something more affordable for the Indian buyers. Christened Jeep Compass, it will be the third SUV and the cheapest offering from the American carmaker for the Indian market. Globally, the 2017 Jeep Compass will replace the current model and the Patriot models in Jeep’s range of cars. Therefore, the SUV will be produced in both right and left hand wheel drive.

In India, Jeep Compass will be manufactured at Fiat’s production facility at Ranjangaon, Maharashtra. Expected to launch by mid-2017, the India-spec model is estimated to be priced aggressively due to comprehensive localisation. It is expected that Jeep Compass could be priced up to Rs 25 lakh, facing heat from Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Hyundai Santa Fe and Honda CR-V in the segment. For power, it could use Fiat’s 2.0 litre Multijet II oil burner with a choice between a manual and automatic unit. There could be a petrol version as well, powered by the 2.0-litre Tigershark unit. Off-road equipment will be standard on the range topping variants including the four-wheel-drive-system.
