Jeep will be launching its much awaited Compass within a few months time and that is great news since we have hearing and waiting for this SUV for a long. Jeep will start production in June with a festive season launch planned. With high localisation levels, we expect Jeep to price the Compass aggressively and also provide value. We know the engine and gearbox options and some of the features. The Compass will have a dual clutch and a six speed manual with both the 1.4 petrol and 2.0 diesel. While the Compass is coming this year, Jeep has another trick up its sleeve in form of the Renegade.
Yes the Renegade will also come in later next year. The Renegade is smaller than the Compass and will be slotted below it being the then cheapest model in the Jeep range and giving access to huge sales. In terms of size while the Compass is bigger than the Creta, the Renegade is smaller-giving you an idea about the segment it will operate in. We expect even lower pricing than the Compass but what engines, features or spec is too early to say.
