Jeep India will start delivering the petrol-powered variants of the Jeep Compass, which was launched in July this year, around Diwali. Jeep has been delivering diesel variants of the Compass to customers since August 2017. So far, thanks to its cut-throat pricing, the Jeep Compass has proved to be a runaway success for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). Bookings for the Jeep Compass began on June 20, 2017 and last month, Jeep India said they had received more than 10,000 bookings for the SUV.

Presently, Jeep India is retailing around 2,000 units of the Jeep Compass from its showrooms across the country, which is about ten times more than the average monthly sales of the next best-selling car in the segment, the Hyundai Tucson. Other players in the segment include the Honda CR-V, and the Volkswagen Tiguan. The sales figure is expected to rise once deliveries of the petrol-powered Compass picks up.

While the diesel-powered Jeep Compass is available in three trim levels - Sport (base), Longitude and the range-topping Limited, the petrol-powered version is only available in the base and top-spec model. 

Unlike the diesel, the petrol Compass can be had with an option of a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. However, the range-topping Limited trim only comes with the 7-speed automatic, while the base Sport model only offers a 6-speed manual.

  • Engine: 1.4-litre MultiAir II turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol 
  • Power: 162PS
