The Jeep Compass gained massive popularity when it entered the Indian market as the most affordable Jeep in India. Most people were concerned about the pricing of the car as top variants were massively expensive. Here, Jeep got good news with the introduction of the Compass 2WD Diesel Automatic in India. That’s something that you heard right because the pricing is 23.99 lakhs (ex-showroom, all India).

It’s worth making a note that there is no petrol engine on offer with the Compass. That’s discontinued because of the low sales and the implementation of BS6 Stage 2 norms. Jeep found it unworthy to upgrade the petrol so there is only a diesel option with the Compass. The 2-liter diesel engine pumps out 170 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque. There is a 9-speed torque converter transmission on offer that was first introduced in the Trailhawk edition. Those who seek an upgrade to a diesel automatic but don’t require a 4WD configuration can go for this new Longitude Plus trim in the car. Jeep also has the 6-speed manual transmission on offer at Rs 20.89 lakhs (ex-showroom, all India) for those who enjoy the experience of a manual transmission.
