Also, that would mean a price of around Rs 16.5-17 lakhs for the Compass Sport 1.4L petrol, and finishing at around Rs 22.5-23.5 lakhs for the top-end Limited (O).

Sorry about putting a spanner in the works of those who are expecting a lower price point for the Compass, but this seems to be the right pricing.
Right pricing against Tucson and Tiguan, yes. Internationally - Compass is priced right against these two. So makes sense undercutting them in India.

Aggressive? I'm not too sure.

Tucson is seen as an overpriced Hyundai at 20.6L ex-showroom starting price for the diesel variant. Considering the fact that the brand pull is not there - 18.6L feels good for the Compass. But a 17.5L or slightly lower pricing would have been it aggressive.

At a starting price of 18.6L - I guess the sales numbers would be around 200 - 250 in the long run. Not bad for the segment though, but it won't be a big volume seller!

Perhaps that's where the Renegade fits in.

It competes against Tucson and Tiguan everywhere else as well.

Last minute poll by Top Gear. Surprisingly, the majority expects it to be priced above 18L till 25!. Jeep might actually be able to crack this pricing, even at 18!

Simple logic forum mates, Go to jeep website, click Jeep life link and there is a contest about guessing the price and joining the launch. The guess range given by them is between 14-26 lakhs.
So my guess is 14Laksh EX-showroom for a petrol manual, probably longitude variant and 26lakhs ex showroom for Trailhawk. They can have seven or eight variants priced 1.5 lakhs apart which gives a spread or 10.5-12 lakhs.

And the winner has already been announced. The prediction was 18,63,280/-

Not sure which variant it is. Likely to be the entry level Sport diesel. As RavenAvi pointed out in the previous page - looks like they are targeting at 2L difference in ex showroom price as compared to the Tucson.

They are two very different questions, the price people expect it to be and the price where people will put their money on it.

If they price it anywhere near Tucson territory, they can very well expect Tucson numbers. Lower, in fact, as Jeep's reach is nothing compared to Hyundai's. Personally, it should be priced at par with the Hexa for it see any reasonable success.

Makes business sense to price it this way as it gives them room to bring in Renegade at 20% lower price like thy do world-wide. If the diesel base starts 15 L ex-showroom for Compass, Renegade can start at 12 L ex-showroom. Their codenamed sub 4m SUV can then be priced even lower.
18 L will not be the price of the base version as it goes against what they have been speaking on competitive pricing

The 1.4 L petrol is a turbo-petrol and will be priced similar to the 2.0 L Multijet diesel. Expect both of them to be priced almost similarly and not with a 4L difference ex-showroom over the diesel version

Could be because it was an exact match for one of the variants

Its just 85 votes !!.. i am sure jeep will not risk its assumptions base on a poll by 85 people

I would keep my best of starting price around 15 lakhs going till 23 lakhs ranging from petrol to 4 X 4 diesel.

Its show time soon

What a mess in the launch timing? Difficult for an American brand to adjust to the Indian time?

Looks like there are last minute discussion about the pricing. What a mess!

Btw, Top Gear poll is now in favour of 15-22L price range.
