Jeep Compass Petrol

Jeep is said to be working on a new 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine for the Indian market. The new motor is expected to power the Compass SUV for a couple of years.

The 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine has already been used in the Renegade. However, it would have to be calibrated and homologated for the Indian market. That being said, the process might already be underway.

Jeep hasn't announced a specific launch date for the petrol-powered Compass SUV.
