Now this has really got my heart beating faster.
The loads of features part and the possible price points part make the whole thing drool worthy.

The more interesting thing I am seeing in that article is the bench-marking. Bench Marking against X1 for C SUV and higher segment ones for the B SUV. Hopefully they dont bench mark the pricing.

Loads of features, decent looks, aggressive pricing and decent after sales services means it will be a sales success. Lets see how it pans out.

The way Jeep is pricing its products, even this will have a hefty price tag. I do not expect it to be less that 30L, and that will kill this model also.

Ah this is a better pic though a bit shaky.

Yes it certainly looks like the Compass but it still resembles the Cherokee Latitude a lot.

Any idea how big this is in comparison with say, the Yeti or the Captiva or the CRV or Q3? Can someone share a perspective on this?

If it is comparable in size and specifications to any or all of the above, then I guess it will fall into the D1 or D2 segments. I do hope of course, that there will be a Top Spec Trail Rated 4 Wheel Drive version available for the consumer. And Im guessing that if so, this will mean that they will tend to price it in the region of the oft repeated 28-32 lacs on road.

Unless of course, they are going to pleasantly surprise us all and spin a googly or two at us!!

According to AutoHome China, the 2017 Jeep Compass will be offered with 2.0L four-cylinder petrol/diesel engine options, paired to 6-speed/9-speed transmissions respectively.

They also clarify that the 2017 Compass will be made available in at least 3 variants - Sport, Longitude and Limited.

From IAB:

Quote:
The Sport, an entry-level variant, will be easy to identify thanks to its concealed exhaust, whereas the top-end Limited will feature a dual-tip exhaust.

Other features that the entry-level Sport trim will miss out include a panoramic sunroof, chrome enclosures for the foglights, silver skid plates, chrome lining for the windows, roof rails and rear windshield and diamond cut alloy wheels.

Speaking of wheels, the 2017 Jeep Compass will be offering at least 5 different alloy wheel patterns.

The 2017 Compass will be revealed in Brazil by end-September, while it will enter production in China by 2016-end. The Indian production will start at the FCA-Tata joint venture plant in Ranjangaon, Maharashtra, by the first half of 2017, and is penned down for a launch for the 2nd quarter of FY2017.

The Ranjangaon plant will also export to other right-hand drive markets, once production starts.

I don't think we'll see the car on Indian roads until the next festive season, as we know how aggressive the FCA Indian management is.
Also, for the car to launch by Q2 2017, we should have seen the test mules on the road by now, as the car needs to be tuned for Indian conditions and homologated and it being FCA , will take some time.
I believe it's better to wait for an official word than jumping into the dates.

Any news or info on the Trail Rated 4WD versions and their availability?
