Car India - - BULLETIN -

THE 2017 JEEP COM­PASS WILL BE OF­FI­CIALLY un­veiled in In­dia on 12 April to join the Wran­gler and Grand Chero­kee in the Amer­i­can man­u­fac­turer’s line-up in the sub­con­ti­nent. The SUV will be avail­able in both petrol and diesel vari­ants and, although the ex­act en­gine spec­i­fi­ca­tions are not known at this time, we ex­pect to see the Mul­tiJet-II 2.0-litre tur­bod­iesel with ei­ther 140 or 170 PS on tap. What we do know is that the In­dia-spec Com­pass will come equipped with Jeep’s pro­pri­etary Ac­tive Drive 4x4 sys­tem, mak­ing it a ca­pa­ble o—roader. Ex­pect a ro­bust in­te­rior with steer­ing- mounted con­trols, touch­screen dis­play, cli­mate con­trol and up­mar­ket ma­te­rial all around.

The Jeep Com­pass will be Jeep’s first lo­cal­ly­man­u­fac­tured prod­uct, built at the FIAT Chrysler plant out­side Pune, and as such the man­u­fac­turer should be able to keep prices com­pet­i­tive in the bur­geon­ing pre­mium com­pact SUV seg­ment.
