Deliveries of Petrol variant Jeep Compass to commence in India
Reports suggest that the delivery of the petrol variant of the newly launched Jeep Compass will start soon. The petrol-run variants of the SUV Jeep Compass are speculated to commence deliveries around Diwali. The diesel variant of the Jeep Compass is plying on the Indian roads since Jeep started deliveries of the Jeep Compass diesel variant since August this year.
Since launch, the Jeep Compass had been a tough competitor in the segment due to its cut-throat pricing. As per the report, Jeep India received more than 10,000 bookings within two months of its launch which is a significant number for the SUV. The Jeep Compass is currently available in different diesel trim levels and soon the petrol variant will be available in three trims. The report also suggests that the production of Jeep Compass petrol variant has already been commenced, and the deliveries of the petrol variant of Jeep Compass will start soon.
Jeep Compass competition and various trims
As reported, the company is retailing around 2,000 units of the newly launched Jeep Compass from its showrooms. This figure is speculated to be around ten times more than the average monthly sales of the Hyundai Tucson, supposedly the next best-selling car in the segment.
The Jeep Compass is currently rivaling other players in the segment such as the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Honda CR-V and it is expected that the sales figure will rise once Jeep India starts delivering of the petrol variant of the Jeep Compass.
It has been reported that currently three trims of the diesel-powered Jeep Compass is available. These trim levels are the range-topping Limited, Longitude and Sport (base). The petrol-powered version of the Jeep Compass is expected to be available only in the base and the top-spec model.
Transmission, booking and delivery date
Unlike the diesel variant of the Jeep Compass the petrol-engine-run Jeep Compass will be available with two options including a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch automatic). On the other hand, the range-topping Limited trim of the Jeep Compass will only come with the 7-speed automatic, whereas the Sport model (base) of the Jeep Compass will only be offered in a 6-speed manual transmission.
As per reports, delivery of the petrol variant of the Jeep Compass is likely to begin this month and reports also state that Jeep India dealerships are accepting bookings for the automatic variant. The company is also accepting bookings for the manual variant of the Jeep Compass and as per report, authorized dealers are accepting a booking amount of Rs 50,000 for the petrol Jeep Compass.
The company has not yet revealed the waiting period and delivery details of the Jeep Compass.
