As you must have read in our previous report, Jeep recently began the production of the Compass at the Ranjangaon plant near Pune. The Ranjangaon plant will be the mother plant for the production of all Right Hand Drive (RHD) Compass models that will also be exported to countries such as the U.K. and Japan.
The India-spec Jeep Compass will feature a 7.0 inch touchscreen infotainment system, 60:40 split rear seats, capless fuel fill and electric parking brake. Also on offer would be a Select Terrain Traction Management System that will offer four modes: Auto Snow, Sand and Mud.
The Compass, for the Indian market, will be available with two engine options: a 1.4-litre Multi-Air petrol engine and a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The former will produce 180+ hp and 230 Nm of torque while the latter will produce 170+ hp and 350 Nm of torque. Transmission options will include a sic speed manual transmission and a seven speed automatic transmission.
