Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Will be Jeep’s first locally manufactured product.

The 2017 Jeep Compass has been spied up close in Mumbai by Carwale, ahead of its launch in mid 2017. It will be Jeep’s first locally manufactured product, put together at the FCA-Tata JV’s plant in Ranjangaon. The plant will also serve as the production hub for right hand drive variants of the Compass.

The Compass is Jeep’s first locally manufactured product, put together at the FCA-Tata JV’s plant in Ranjangaon.

With local production, expect Jeep India to price the Compass significantly lower than its current range of product. It will also be priced competitively as it enters a lucrative premium SUV segment comprising of rivals like the Hyundai Tucson, Honda CR-V, upcoming VW Tiguan, as well as entry level variants of larger, ladder-frame SUVs like the Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner. In Brazil, the Compass is priced between BRL 99,990 and BRL 149,990 (INR 20.29 Lakhs – INR 30.72 Lakhs).

The pre-production models feature a camouflage body wrap that tries its best to hide the Grand Cherokee-inspired exterior design, which has already been revealed in Brazil and at the L.A Auto Show. It measures 4,416 mm long, 1,819 mm wide, 1,645 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,636 mm.

For the Indian market, the Compass will be sold in both petrol and diesel variants. The former is reported to pack a 1.4L Multiair turbocharged engine, while the latter is powered by a bigger 2.0L Multijet II turbodiesel 4-cyl unit. The diesel variant will come with either a 6-speed manual or 9-speed AT, and could get Jeep’s Active Drive 4×4 system as an exclusive option.
