It seems Jeep India is going the 'MG' way. They would be giving an introductory pricing, initially, and as per my local sales guy, one can expect a price hike from March. Price hike can be expected in the range of ₹80k - ₹1.5 Lacs, depending on the variant. Indicative pricing- ₹16.5 to ₹23.5 Lacs ex-showroom. Top variant will be the 'S', and was told that there would be 4 variants in total, with the lower variants getting the dual tone interiors (bummer). Price reveal on 27th Jan, with TD vehicles being available from the first week of February. Booking amount ₹50k, fully refundable. One can change the variant and colour after the launch, too.

Few things don't align with what my local dealership is saying. They are offering 2020 Compass that they have in stock for just Rs 21,000 discount in the hope that the new Compass will get a 2-3 lac hike. Regarding the test drive/display vehicles, they mentioned that it's on the way and can be expected to arrive this week and that the deliveries will possibly commence from the first week of February. Looks like dealerships do not have a confirmed timeline and they are guessing the figures and dates.

Introductory pricing ( and extending it indefinitely ) is a great way to lower/correct the prices without admitting that a product is overpriced. I Hope Jeep does that

Really? Dual tone only in the lower variants! That would indeed be a bummer! I was looking forward to the brown interiors!

The Sport variant gets features like dual airbags, LED headlamps, 8.4-inch UConnect infotainment with 4 speakers and Android Auto / Apple Car Play, 17-inch alloy wheels, black fabric seats, 3.5 inch MID, manual AC, rear wiper and defogger along with hill start assist.

The Longitude trim gets push start button, roof rails, sky grey interiors, 7.0-inch TFT cluster, 6-speakers, electrically foldable mirrors and LED fog lamps over the features offered in the Sport variant.

The Limited variant gets features like Auto hold (AT only), hill descent in 4X4, dual colour, electrically adjustable driver seats with memory function, auto dimming day/night IRVM, rain sensing wipers, 6 airbags, 18-inch alloys and front skid plates.

The Limited (O) gets features like dual panoramic sunroof, 10.1-inch Connect infotainment and powered tailgate over the Limited variant.

The S gets top of the line features like TPMS, 9 speaker Alpine system, ventilated front seats, black leather interior, wireless charging, 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, electric seats for the front passenger and ambient foot lights amongst others.

The 2021 Compass will be offered in 7 colours - Exotic Red, Magnesio Grey, Minimal Grey, Bright White, Brilliant Black, Galaxy Blue and Techno Green. The prices for the updated Compass will be announced on January 27, 2021.

Thank you for sharing blackwasp. IMO, at this price point, the base variant must at least include 4 airbags, Electrically foldable mirrors, 6 speakers and TFT Cluster. This can help tilt prospective Creta & Seltos buyers in favor of Compass.

It seems that the Sport variant is ready to do battle with the Creta / Seltos / Taigun / Kushaq top variants. Just 2 airbags is definitely a bummer, though.

Apart from that, it is quite an extensive feature list.

If they can price the base automatic variant at around 20L OTR, it definitely will convert a lot of buyers.

Not having 6 airbags from Sport variant onwards is really ridiculous. Then again, I won't blame Jeep as much as the current Safety norms.

I guess they've missed a trick here - a mid level variant with the popular bling priced south of 20 lakhs to take on the top variants of creta/seltos/harrier. May be a longitude plus with sunroof will be offered down the line like harrier's XT+?

Great update. Thanks. But there is no mention of the Trailhawk.
Do they plan to discontinue it or maybe it will be launched at a later date?

Interesting! Price it "right" and the SPORT & Longitude both trims are actually covering quite a good list of convenience features with moderate safety kit also included. Just get the pricing precisely and these 2 trims might be able to turn it around rather well for the Compass.

I'd go so far as to say - this is the best trim & feature loading I have seen over last many years. Very sensible choices. Most other car makers make ridiculous base trims that don't justify the asking prices - intentionally. And these base trims also look stupid at just a glance. Something for other car makers to learn from Jeep here. Let's see if the new Safari gets a rear wiper from base model XE for example.

IMO, the base variant is not value for money at all. The current model's diesel manual sport plus (same features as facelift's sport variant) is priced same as Harrier's XT diesel manual and has same level of safety (both rigidity of body and electronic safety) but the harrier has many more features like fog lamps, auto AC, electric foldable mirror, push button start, Auto headlamps and wipers, 6 speakers, lumbar support etc. With the increase in price of the facelift, it would make it even worse. What exactly is Jeep India thinking?

The only thing that they can cash in on is that Harrier does not have a petrol engine or even diesel automatic in XT/XT+ variant.

The variant spread is good! The Limited option looks particularly good with all the safety tech and no unnecessary additional bling. Very tempted by this car now!

Can see two different buttons in the facelift
4WD LOW & 4WD LOCK

I believe the earlier model came with just one button for 4WD LOCK.
Is there any difference in 4X4 capabilities for the facelift?

Unfortunately, there lies the problem. The Compass is a good 5L more expensive than a similarly loaded Seltos or Creta. That translates to 6L on-road difference.

For someone on a fixed budget, this premium can't be justified, come what may. The net gap should be 2L for someone to consider this car, especially the lower variants which bring in good volumes.

For someone with a flexible budget and looking for a good 4-5 seater car and willing to pay significant premium for the experience offered, Compass becomes a strong contender.
