Recently, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) was on a launching spree in the Indian market. The company launched the Urban Cross Avventura back in the month of September followed by Punto Karbon and the Linea Royale during the festive season. Now, the company plans to introduce yet another model, this time through its marquee known as Jeep.
The Jeep Compass, as it has been christened, will be heading to Indian shores soon. Revealed during the end of September, the compact SUV from the American automobile manufacturer has been spotted yet again during a public road test. Images shared by Motoroids readers Amit Sharma and Anurag Sable reveal a fully camouflaged Jeep Compass.
A few highlights of the upcoming Jeep Compass include Xenon headlamps with LED DRLs, electrically foldable and adjustable ORVMs, automatic wipers and headlamps, black leather seats with contrast red stitching, keyless entry, engine start-stop button, tyre pressure monitoring system, 8 way power adjustable driver seat, dual zone climate control and an 8.4 inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
FCA is likely to offer the Jeep Compass with a petrol engine and a diesel engine. While the details of the petrol engine remain scarce, it is believed that the diesel unit will be a 172 hp 2.0-litre Fiat sourced Multijet motor. Also on offer would be four trim levels – Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk. The model will be manufactured at parent company Jeep’s plant located in RanjanGaon, Pune.
