A dealer in Bangalore said the price details will be available after the third week of January. The dealership where I pre-booked the Compass does not have any idea of when the prices will be revealed or when they can deliver the vehicle. Glad that I did not sell off my Elantra hoping the Compass will be delivered by the end of January.

I was also pretty close to asking for a quote for my old vehicle last month. I guess I will have to hold on to it for another month at the very least.

I was also on the same boat and after a lot of swinging from MT to AT to MT and then back to AT, I too booked a longitude plus Diesel AT. The discount on the ex showroom was good and then took my own insurance and transferred my previous vehicle's NCB to this one.

Still trying to figure out how to get the logistics charges waived off. (Any pointers BHPians?? ) Delivery should happen by Christmas !!!

Wish they had added more details, this was more like a 'soft launch'.

Some more information is available on their website -
https://www.jeep-india.com/newcompass.html

I like what I see so far. The interiors seem absolutely plush and a step up in every way, probably commensurate to the price tag now. Good to see 360 cameras, ventilated seats, wireless charging, electronically adjustable seats for both driver and passengers and if I heard Mr Datta correctly did he also mention a one-touch electronic tailgate?

The focus seems to be to make it more refined, more luxurious and of course on connected car tech.

Quoting my own comment from another thread:

It's good that Jeep has extended the electronic seat adjustability to passenger side as well + memory function for 2 + ventilated seats which will be a huge plus in our humid/hot conditions.

And they retained the fully digital instrument cluster as well in our Indian model.

Only thing I wish is that they should properly tune the 9 speed Auto in the diesel variants. And that they do a price correction as well. Ok that makes it 2 wishes.

P.S.: That placement of EPB switch is awkward or down-right dangerous. Imagine an kid sitting in the passenger side and "accidentally" pulling that while taking a phone from that wireless phone charger.

Yeah, I thought so too, but it was not stressed upon properly and it is not listed on the website as well. Not a serious requirement, but I hope they do provide that.

Congrats to you and your family...

Can you please let me know how much discount you were able to pull through for this?
I am on the same boat as I am contemplating whether to get good discount in current gen model or wait for new model.

This has all the details and yes the powered tail gate is part of the package.

This time I feel Jeep has hit it out of the park hope they do not get greedy like Toyota did with the Fortuner and it should get the booking registers ringing for the dealers.

If Mahindra can make 4x4 standard drive on the Thar and price it within 20lac, I don’t see why Jeep cannot make AWD standard along with 6 airbags across its Compass range.
