XUV 500 AWD costs 17.8 Laks Ex Showroom Bangalore, On road 22 Laks.
20L for Jeep Compass? If they fix this price it will be great competition.

Hope there is no delay and they announce delivery dates soon.

Wonder what happened to the new X-Trail? Have been waiting for it for almost 2 years now.

Hope you are budgeting for double the price tag that the Compass will carry over the WRV.

Bit surprised by this cross shopping, as the Compass would probably slot in two segments above the WRV.

I understand, you are right. However, It is only after watching/reading the reviews and all these speculations, i am somehow getting convinced to increase the budget to 2 folds.
I think being 80% localised, amazing looks, interiors and such quality consciousness, this can be a value for money deal. Only hitch is the ASS, and i again hope that this FCA will address.
Looking forward to see this Jeep in showroom and then finalise.

Now thats what i call "Leap of Faith"

If FCA people are reading this thread, they would be on a different planet all-together now.

Thanks for sharing. There are a few contradictions in the article but overall it's good to hear that the underpinnings are working well. I am also glad to hear that it takes corners well which is definitely a plus. At the 20-25L price band, this should sell really well.

I am definitely concerned by one thing. It feels to me that there's a load of hyper-enthusiasm around this. And definitely when such things happen, it is bound to either be a really hot seller or fall flat on it's side. I have a few friends who own Jeeps in the US and they absolutely love it for what fun it delivers but absolutely hate it for it's unreliability. Parts coming off, constant changes to electronic items and just flat out mechanical problems. I just hope they don't do that with the Compass. The running joke is that the final destination of all Jeep trips is the workshop.

I am not dissing them but I just want to make sure they are not covering their product's ineptness with all this hype. The punishment in the hands of Indian buyers are typically extreme.

+1 on this. In my earlier posts on this thread I have been constantly reminding the forum on the Jeep brand reliability issues in America.
My co brother is down from America and over dinner was casually discussing Jeep Compass and it's impending launch , he just had a wry smile and just said that it will be more workshop than your garage. He has an RAV4 with 170 k miles and 15 years.

Indian market will be ruthless if they get it wrong. Let's just hope "all is well ".

Video recording orientation is inverted by 90 degrees, but gives us a fair idea of how the Compass fares on our Indian rough roads.
