Jeep India has been on a roll since the start of 2017. The American carmaker has finally found its mojo in India with the launch of the Jeep Compass. However, the company at the moment is only introducing new variants of the Compass and other products. One such variant is the Jeep Compass Sport Plus. The Jeep Compass Sport Plus price in India is Rs 15.99 lakh, ex-showroom and sits above the base Sport trim. Bookings and deliveries have both started across Jeep authorised dealerships in India.
Speaking of which, there are more than 82 Jeep outlets now in India. These include the Fiat, Abarth as well as Jeep combined showrooms and Jeep Connect ones. Jeep India recently inaugurated new showrooms in Goa, Patiala, Bengaluru and Ajmer. Jeep’s retail presence in India now covers more than 70 cities in India.
What does the Jeep Compass Sport Plus get?
The new features in the Compass include 16-inch sporty alloys, dual-zone auto air-conditioning, rear parking sensors and black roof rails. Moreover, there is a speed alert warning installed as well. Apart from this, there are all-wheel disc brakes, frequency selective damping suspension as well as an electronic parking brake.
The Jeep Compass Sport Plus comes with two powertrain options – a 173PS/350Nm, 2.0-litre Multijet turbo diesel with a 6-speed manual transmission with a claimed fuel efficiency of 17.1 kmpl. The second engine is a 162PS/250Nm, 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo petrol with a 6-speed manual transmission that promises 14.1 kmpl.
FCA India president and MD, Kevin Flynn says, “When customers buy a Jeep anywhere in the world, they get immersed in the SUV brand’s fascinating lineage, superior on- and off-road dynamics coupled to the intuitive comfort and luxury they offer. Our Jeep customers in India own one for these very reasons. The new Jeep Compass Sport Plus has all the substantial elements that make it a true Jeep. It now raises the desirability quotient with this new feature-addition so Jeep customers can always get a vehicle a notch above the rest and at a good price.”
