Top-end Jeep Compass Limited’s 7.0 inch UConnect touchscreen spied
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Lower variants will get a 5.0 inch UConnect system.
Car and Bike has acquired new spy shots of the top-end Indian spec Jeep Compass Limited, one of which reveals the cabin. Although the report states that the touchscreen is an “8.8-inch” system, this is actually the 7.0 inch UConnect system offered in mid-level variants of the Compass sold in the U.S and Brazil.
The top-end 7.0 inch UConnect will offer features like AM/FM radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Bluetooth streaming and voice recognition. It’s unclear if GPS-guided navigation will be offered in the India-spec Compass, as it’s not available in the U.S-spec Compass with the same system.
As for lower variants, the Compass will come equipped with a basic 5.0 inch UConnect system with buttons and knobs.
As revealed at the unveiling last month, the top-end Limited will come with dual tone black and Alpine white interior colour combo, which can be seen in the model spotted. It also gets gloss black trim around the touchscreen, automatic climate control and a silver gear knob for the 6-speed manual variants.
The Compass measures 4,410 mm in length, 1,820 mm in width and 1,640 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,630 mm. Engine options include a 1.4 FIRE MultiAir petrol engine (160+ hp) and 2.0-litre MultiJet II diesel turbocharged motor with 170+ hp, which can be had with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, as well as Jeep’s Active Drive AWD system with Selec-Terrain Technology.
The Jeep Compass is confirmed to arrive in showrooms in India in Q3 2017, specifically in August. Prices are estimated to range between INR 21 Lakhs – 25 Lakhs (ex-showroom). The Compass made in India will also be exported to UK, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore and Indonesia.
