India, February 20, 2019 : As a result of growing competition in segment from the recently launched Tata Harrier and a bid to clear old stocks, Jeep is now offering huge discounts on their entry-level model Compass SUV. Jeep is offering a maximum discount of up to Rs 1.2 lakh on some variants manufactured in 2018. Discounts are available on all the variants and both engine options, except for the base Sports and the top-end Limited Plus variant.
Variant-wise discount figures available on Jeep Compass are given below : -
Over the past few months, the SUV is now seeing an increasing level of competition and sales of the Jeep Compass have been slipping. The Mahindra XUV500 has received a facelift, and is now selling much more than the Compass. The latest competitor to this segment – the Tata Harrier – has received a big chunk of bookings, and its sales figures for the coming months look quite promising. Undoubtedly, the Compass needs something extra to get buyers into showrooms and Jeep India will be hoping that the large discounts are incentive enough.
Jeep Compass is available with two engine options in India. The petrol variant gets a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine with 160 Bhp-250 Nm. The diesel engine is a 2.0L Fiat Multijet unit with 170 Bhp-350 Nm. Jeep offers an all-wheel drive system with the diesel engine only. Talking about the transmission both petrol and diesel variant get a 6-speed manual transmission as standard and the petrol variant offers a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission also.
Jeep will soon be launching a new variant Compass Trailhawk, the SUV's line up will finally have the option of a diesel-automatic combination. The Trailhawk variant is expected to cost around Rs 25 lakh, ex-showroom.
