Amazing pricing by FCA! This will give Creta and the likes run for their money. Duster and Creta were always overpriced.
The base variant Compass looks very attractive. It has all the safety features incl ESP, solid build quality, multilink rear suspension and a powerful engine.

As per Autocar,the features of Limited Edition are :

Jeep Compass Limited
  • Petrol and diesel engine options
  • Seven-speed dual-clutch automatic (only with the petrol variant)
  • LED tail-lamps
  • Rear camera
  • Grey leather upholstery and steering
  • Door sill guards
  • SelecTerrain 4WD system
  • Dual front, side and curtain airbags
Jeep Compass Limited (O)
  • Petrol and diesel engine options
  • HID headlamps
  • Contrast black roof
Does this mean Petrol AT Limited gets 6 airbags?I was reading somewhere that the top end Petrol AT gets only 2 airbags

Jeep clearly had decided on the final variant mix after analyzing the booking data. That would explain the absence of a petrol mid (Longitude) variant. As a result of which, the gap between the cheapest and the next expensive petrol variant is close to 4 lakhs. There could be a demand for a mid-variant petrol AT at 16 lakh.

Any news about the diesel 4x4 AT? I suspect they held that back so as to keep the top of the price range as low as possible at launch.

As far as I infered the feature list, I do think that 6 airbags is only an option in the 4*4 variants. Even I have been a bit confused on the same criteria. It is something that will probably decide what variant I would go for. Would love a AT with 6 airbags.

Yes its only the 4*4 variant (that would be diesel one) which will get 6 airbags. Here's the screenshot from their website:

While the base petrol is priced really well, I cannot say the same about the Petrol AT Limited (O) that I have booked. When I am paying more than 20 lakhs on road, it is pretty natural to expect full safety kit and FCA has forced me to cancel my booking by skipping the side/curtain airbags. I think FCA put all its efforts on structuring the diesel variants and didn't bother about the petrol top end variants. With no diesel automatic this year and pretty ordinarily priced/specced petrol AT, I am not sure if this is going to do great in the 20 lakh price point. As far as I can understand, potential customers expect a fully loaded AT variant for premium cars these days and it is a blunder on FCA's part for not taking care of such customers. Let us wait and watch.

Jeep has just announced killer pricing of Compass!

Variant Ex-showroom Price
Jeep Compass 1.4 Petrol Sport MT INR 14.95 Lakhs
Jeep Compass 1.4 Petrol Limited AT INR 18.70 Lakhs
Jeep Compass 1.4 Petrol Limited Option AT INR 19.40 Lakhs
Jeep Compass 2.0 Diesel Sport MT INR 15.45 Lakhs
Jeep Compass 2.0 Diesel Longitude MT INR 16.45 Lakhs
Jeep Compass 2.0 Diesel Longitude Option MT INR 17.25 Lakhs
Jeep Compass 2.0 Diesel Limited MT INR 18.05 Lakhs
Jeep Compass 2.0 Diesel Limited Option MT INR 18.75 Lakhs

With these prices, I am assured Jeep would kill it in the segment.

Post Launch, I showed the prices of this Compass to my Father & Elder Brother (Who is searching for EcoSport Replacement).

The reaction from my brother wasn't much, but my Dad asked just 3 questions,

Is there Diesel Automatic ? I said No.
Is the AWD Standard across range ? I Said only Diedel Top End has it.
Is this better then the Benchmark "Innova" & is it as good as Tucson ?

I said that Innova will still win the race when due to its positioning. It is an MPV, agreed, but the price range it's in makes it a great all rounder. It only lacks 4WD, but is spacious, can seat 7/8, has Diesel AT, Interiors are premium & Toyota's Excellent After sales & Cheap Maintanence. The Compass doesn't have any of these.

In the end, he said that only the Diesel AT will make it a good Package & I wholeheartedly agree with him on that Front. So, until FCA launches Compass Diesel AT & also adds those missing Features (Sunroof, Bigger ICE, Crusie Control) etc this will be out of contention for me.

But, FCA Thank you for the Very Good Pricing, especially the base variants.

Mixed bag, when it comes to pricing. But all depends on what're the features available on the base variant? As per one Sales Executive, Alloy wheels are available only on top variant. Alloy wheels are essential for such a heavy vehicle. Looking forward for other features, variant wise.
Alloys wheels are standard on all variants except Base variant.

This is killer pricing in my opinion.

This is a really confusing move by Jeep.What does 4*4 variant have to do with airbags?

I wanted a diesel AT with 6 airbags but can go for petrol AT.6 airbags is not what I want to compromise on when am paying 22-23L OTR and when there are cars in the 10-12L range with 6 airbags.

How does the ex-showroom Delhi price influence prices in other states. Considering it is manufactured in Pune, does it mean Pune/Maharashtra will get lower than 14.95L ex-showroom price considering less transportation cost?

Absolutely killer pricing by FCA! The top end diesel variant undercuts the base Tucson variant as well!!
FCA has really bet big on the Compass and I am pretty sure they have a winner on their hands.

Now, if only I could arrange my finances for this, my 8 year old Punto has a worthy worthy replacement!

IMO - By next year Diesel AT should be launched.

IMO - There most probably will be no difference in Ex Showroom Prices - Going Forward.
But the Road Tax is State Dependent - And Insurance may vary along with Dealer - Incidentals - leading to very different prices in each state.
I am sure at 18% Road Tax, Karnataka - will be among the top 3 if not the top !!!

Incidentally - On the 4x4 Limited (O) Diesel - The only difference with the Limited - will be - HID Projector Vs Halogen Projector - Black Roof (If one goes for Black - then this also is negated) - In such a scenario - are the HIDs worth 70K ?

Probably the manufacturers don't believe that a demand exists for these top end petrol automatics.

The trend is the same across manufacturers.

SCross - No petrol
Creta - No SX(o) AT

Hexa - No petrol.
XUV 5OO - No petrol.

Tucson - No petrol GLS, manual or AT.
Tiguan - No petrol.

Hope Jeep realizes that there is an opportunity here and introduced the top end petrol by the time the diesel AT is ready for launch.
