Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent this brochure in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this page!

The official 53-page brochure of the Jeep Compass has been leaked ahead of the SUV's India launch. Jeep is expected to launch the Compass in India in August 2017. The complete brochure can be downloaded from this link.

Our previous brochure scoop revealed the variant-wise feature distribution and colour options that will be available with the Compass. Now, details about the SUV's off-road capabilities, specifications and design have also surfaced through the leaked brochure.

According to this brochure, the India-spec Compass will have a 17-degree approach angle and a 32-degree departure angle, while its ground clearance will be 178 mm. The 4x4 models will come with Jeep's Active Drive system that can send up to 100% of the available torque to one wheel. It will also offer the driver an option to disconnect the rear axle and thus function the SUV in the regular FWD setup. Jeep claims that the Compass will automatically disconnect the rear axle at cruising speeds, which will improve the SUV's efficiency by up to 4%. When AWD is required, the rear axle can be reconnected to the drive system in a company-claimed time of 300-milli seconds.

The Compass will come with a Selec-Terrain system which will offer four driving modes - Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud. In the Auto mode, the drive system will remain in the FWD setup under normal conditions and will automatically switch to AWD mode according to driving conditions. The system will engage AWD if traction is compromised at the front wheels and while accelerating and cornering. The other three modes (Snow, Sand and Mud) have been pre-programmed to tune the AWD system, stability control and steering precision for the respective terrains.

Powering the Jeep Compass will be two engine options - a 2.0-litre Multi-jet II diesel that will churn out 170 BHP @ 3,750 rpm and 350 Nm @ 1,750-2,500 rpm and a 1.4-litre MultiAir petrol with 162 BHP and 250 Nm on tap. The brochure also indicates that the Compass will initially be launched only with the diesel engine, while the petrol power plant will be added at a later date.
