The Compass spotted on test together with the Renegade!

Quote:
we have here images of the Compass testing in India along with the Renegade. The Renegade has been spied testing many times before but it is not coming to India. In terms of dimensions the Compass is similar to something like a Hyundai Tucson yet looks less like a crossover and has more presence than any of its rivals.

The implementation of traditional Jeep styling cues gives it an advantage of being more of a rugged SUV. It exudes a shrunken Grand Cherokee vibe with the seven-slat grille and squared off wheel arches. Clearly looks would be one of the USPs of the Compass.

The 2017 Compass has been launched at the ongoing Guangzhou Auto Show in Beijing, with prices starting from 1,70,000 Yuan (roughly Rs 16.82 lakh).

Apart from the 3 regular variants (Sport, Longitude & Limited), the all-new Compass is also offered in a top of the line Trailhawk 4WD variant too, which is priced at 2,40,000 Yuan (roughly Rs 23.74 lakh).

Prices are a good indication of what we can expect Jeep India to price the Compass in India, when it is launched in H2 2017.

China is the second manufacturing hub for the all-new Compass, after Brazil.

Quote:
The Chinese spec gets all the features which are expected to be provided in India. This includes an 8.4-inch infotainment screen, Uconnect system, engine start/stop button, adaptive cruise control, advanced brake assist, Selec-Terrain with five terrain settings, leather seats and a host of active and passive safety and security features.

A couple of Jeep Compass SUVs have been spotted while on a testing run in Mumbai.

Quote:
From the first look, the overall appearance of the test mules easily hinted at this being a Jeep vehicle. Closer inspection revealed that it is the same Compass model, which the automaker unveiled at the Los Angeles Motor Show. And even if it's hard to pull out many exterior details from these camouflaged vehicles, we couldn't see any major component changes. Jeepís trademark seven-slot grille, trapezoidal wheel arches and a cabin that spells class and comfort reminds you of the larger sibling - the Grand Cherokee.

The Jeep Compass will be introduced in the Chinese market next month.

The 80% localised Indian version of the Compass will be launched in our market sometime after mid-2017.
