Finally it seems the launch date of the Jeep Compass has been revealed and it is the end of this month on July 31. Bookings for the Jeep Compass started last month and it had garnered 1000 bookings within three days signalling the interest in this SUV. Bookings are on with an amount of Rs 50,000 and you can book online as well besides FCA or Jeep-exclusive showroom.
Since the Compass is locally made at the FCA———s Ranjangaon plant, we expect a competitive price with an expected starting price of Rs 18 lakh. Do remember at launch there will be no petrol instead only the diesel manual would be available. The petrol along with the diesel automatic will come in later. Standard equipment is good and top-end variants will have a bigger touchscreen and more features. The 4x4 version also has the selec terrain system with various modes. The Jeep Compass would compete with the Hyundai Tucson as its main rival.
