Today I saw, a red Compass on the road. Boy, this car has presence!!

It will be a shame if Jeep does a pricing fiasco to seal it's fate.

It's the price alright. They want people to take screnshot of the best guess within the range and send them.

So the 13L one might not be the starting price afterall! Don't know who thinks of such marketing stunts!

Test drove the 4x2 manual diesel today. Beautiful powerful machine. Feels really punchy and smooth. Quality felt top notch. Gear shift was great. The salesman was confident that the top end would MRP on road around 25 lakh 'ish price point. He also estimated that the diesel AT top end would come at at least 2-3 lakh above that.

I was just a little rattled to see FE display of about 15.9 l/100 kms (that's approx 6.2 kmpl). I know it might be abused a bit being a dealer and TD vehicle but even at absolute ripe worst number to bumper traffic, my beemer never delivered lower than 8.5-9 kmpl and usually 9.5-10 ish range.

I dread to think what FE a 4x4 diesel AT or the petrol AT might give at this rate. Something worth keeping an eye out on for potential buyers.

KM/liter depends on the terrain you drive and also driving style

Here is what the same 2.0 Multijet II engine in another car gets in a foreign location

So urban mileage would be around 13 km/liter and not 14km/liter taking into account the heavier vehicle (11-12 km/liter in stop-gap BLR traffic). Highway driving could give 20-21 km/liter and mixed could be 16-17 km/liter




Fuel consumption (economy) - urban 6.9 l/100 km. Fuel consumption (economy) - extra urban 4.3 l/100 km. Fuel consumption (economy) - combined 5.3 l/100 km.

The countdown in Jeep Facebook page is real classy with the number of days being matched with the features: 3 interior options for 3 days to go, 2 engine options for 2 days to go, etc.. I don't know how to attach the images since I am only on the mobile site at present.

Here's few screen shots

Spotted one in red! Was eye catching and massive road presence. It just took off like its heels were on fire, before I could get a good shot.

True that. Actually it looks much better in person and on the road than in photos and inside the showroom. I think red would be the standout colour.

There are already 3-4 limited editions of black, red and silver color running around in my area since a week. 2 belong to students of symbiosis I have a Fiat executive living in my society who has the black grand cherooke since donkey years and has the red color compass since a month ago. I dont understand how come so many are already on the roads!

It seems that the PR & ADVT AGENCY are doing all the right things. The launch is definitely being looked forward to by most SUV fans.

Great expectations !! Hopefully this product will give us a well priced & able product, which ticks all the right boxes.

Looking forward to reading the official review.

Cheers

Inspite of all the noise that's being created, I still think FCA missed a big truck by not offering the top spec diesel with an automatic from the start. The segment that they are in, most buyers will be shopping for an automatic.

Look at the Innova, I mostly see only the 2.8 Z AT variants on the road.

Not looking too good guys.

Jeep India has just announced Ankush Ahuja as the winner of their contest where they invited everyone to guess the launch price of Jeep.

This is what he had submitted
Meeting the Jeep Compass. EDIT: Priced between 14.95 to 20.65 lakhs-ankush.png

So launch in the range of 18.5 to 19 lacs for Sports variant. Too steep.

All the best to FCA as they are clearly focusing on exports and not too serious about India market
