Jeep Compass: variants explained
Jeep's compact SUV offered with 2 engines and in 5 trims
Jeep has finally launched the new Compass and at astonishing prices and we have the details of the various trims that are being offered. The first locally manufactured unit of this new compact SUV rolled off the production line last month and we got to drive it recently and now, let's take a closer look at the trims on offer and their respective prices.
The Sport variant is basic but fairly well-equipped. It will be available with both engines but only with the 6-speed manual 'box, riding on 16-inch steel wheels. Safety features include dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, stability and traction control. It's the entry-level trim but it does get a 5-inch UConnect touchscreen infotainment system.
Petrol: Rs 14.95 lakh
Diesel: Rs 15.45 lakh
This one is only available with the diesel engine and gets an upgrade in the form of 17-inch wheels and is equipped with parking sensors and fog lamps front and back. It also gets the keyless-go feature. This trim is priced at Rs 16.45 lakh.
3) Longitude (O)
It's the same as the Longitude trim, available only with the diesel engine but gets more goodies like a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and dual-zone climate control. This trim also features projector headlamps and a rear parcel tray. The extra bits bring the price to Rs 17.25 lakh for this trim.
The Compass Limited trim is available with the choice of both engines, and being the more premium of the lot, gets leather upholstery, too. It also gets LED tail-lamps, a reverse camera and door sill scuff plates.
