Rumour: Jeep Compass Petrol variants discontinued

Currently, Jeep dealerships are said to be accepting bookings for the Compass diesel only.

If the latest rumours are anything to go by, Jeep may have discontinued the petrol variants of the Compass.

During a brief interaction with a salesperson, BHPian Maky learned that the Compass Petrol was no longer on sale. Both manual and automatic variants are said to have been shelved for now. Whether it’s temporary, while Jeep upgrades the engine to comply with BS6 Phase 2 norms remains to be seen.

The Compass Petrol is powered by a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 156 BHP and 250 Nm. The engine is paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT.

It is said that the Compass will only be available with the 2.0-litre diesel engine for the time being. This engine develops 168 BHP and 350 Nm and is offered with a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic with four-wheel drive.
