Jeep Compass: price hike
As you can see in the table above, the higher-spec Limited, Anniversary Edition, Model S and Trailhawk variants see a price hike of around Rs 40,000-45,000. Meanwhile, the lower-spec Longitude and Night Eagle variants see a price hike in the region of Rs 15,000-25,000. However, it’s the base Sport petrol-manual that sees the maximum hike of Rs 1.80 lakh, while the prices for the base Sport diesel-manual remain unchanged.
What’s more interesting is that, at the beginning of the year, the Compass was priced at Rs 18.04 lakh for the base petrol-manual variant, while the top-spec diesel Trailhawk variant was priced at Rs 30.72 lakh. Therefore, in just a little over 10 months, prices for the base petrol variant have shot up by a massive Rs 3.05 lakh, while the Trailhawk is dearer by Rs 1.95 lakh.
Jeep Compass: powertrain and rivals
Powertrain options for the Compass include a 163hp, 250Nm, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine that is paired either to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. There’s also a 170hp, 350Nm, 2.0-litre diesel engine paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic gearbox. Its only the diesel-AT powertrain that’s offered with the 4x4 system on the higher-spec trims.
