India-bound Jeep Compass unveiled; to bow in at LA 2016

India-bound Jeep Compass unveiled; to bow in at LA 2016

The India-Bound Jeep Compass has been unveiled ahead of its official start of production in Brazil and debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Seen sans camouflage for the first time last week, this vehicle will also be locally manufactured at Fiat India’s Ranjangaon plant from mid-2017 and will  be the American automaker’s third model in India once it is launched.

The official photos reveal that this new Jeep Compass mimics the looks of its elder sibling the Cherokee/Grand Cherokee which is no bad thing considering that the latter has become a decent success. Noticeable Jeep touches include the 7 slat-grille,
contrast coloured bonnet and roof, softly flared wheel arches and stylised tail lamps. The cabin has been shown for the first time and the picture reveals things like leather upholstery, climate control and touchscreen infotainment system. Jeep has said that the SUV will be offered in 17 different powertrains of which the options will vary depending on the market.

As we had said in the beginning, this is an important car for Jeep in India as it will be their first locally produced model. Production is expected to begin in mid-2017 and we believe that they will price the car in the range of Rs 25 lakh to Rs 35 lakh putting it in competition with the likes of the Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, Hyundai Santa Fe and possibly the Skoda Kodiaq once it is launched.
