India’s Reception Of The Jeep Compass Is Overwhelming



FCA India will be launching the Jeep Compass in July, but the company has already started accepting pre-orders both online and in Jeep India dealerships. According to CarAndBike, Jeep has received around 1000 deposits at Rs 50,000 each from interested customers in just three days.

Perhaps the Compass’ competitive pricing had something to do with its popularity as up to 80% of the vehicle will be manufactured at FCA’s plant in Ranjangaon. What’s more, cars produced at this plant will be exported to right-hand drive markets like Japan, UK and South Africa before the year ends. Impressive considering how FCA only needed 23 months to get the production plant up and running and a hefty investment of $280 million.

But an attractive price still needs to be backed by an impressive machine and the Compass certainly delivers. Featuring a 1.4-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and a 2-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel motor, the former can crank out 160 bhp and 260 Nm of torque with the diesel producing 170 bhp and 350 Nm of torque. A 6-speed manual gearbox should come standard with an optional 7-speed automatic transmission.

Jeep India hasn’t even announced the Compass’ price bracket yet, but the SUV has already managed to interest a substantial amount of buyers. We can expect to see these pre-booking numbers increase in the days to come.

If Jeep can crack the Asian market, they they'll be able to sell a whole lot more units because of the large amount of people living there. I assume India has a high population density, thus why there are so many deposits for the new Compass.

Jeep Compass has certainly created a buzz in India. I visited the showroom and it was such a wonderful experience to see the Jeep Compass in the showroom. Aesthetics, Body-weight, Colors on offer are all attractive. Lets see how FCA is going to price the vesicle.
