    Jeep India launched the all new 2017 Compass’ petrol and diesel versions together on 31st of July. The company had commenced the bookings back in the month of June. However, the iconic American SUV manufacturer had commenced the deliveries of only the diesel models of the Compass from 6th of August onwards, while the petrol version’s deliveries are still pending. As per the latest reports, Jeep India will initially start the deliveries of the Compass petrol automatic variants first, which will soon be followed by the manual models. Reports also say that Jeep India is witnessing more demands for the Compass petrol automatic model compared to the manual counterparts. Thus, the petrol automatic variant will be getting the priority from the company when deliveries and making the customers happy are concerned.  

     

    The new Jeep Compass petrol is offered for sale in India in three trim levels, namely – Sport, Limited and Limited (O). The petrol version gets powered by a 1.4 litre MultiAir turbocharged petrol engine that generates a max power of 162 hp. The engine gets paired with a seven speed automatic or a 6 speed manual transmission gearbox option.

    On the other hand, the diesel avatar of the Compass gets equipped with a 2.0 litre MultiJet motor that gets coupled with a 6 speed manual transmission only, while the automatic transmission version is expected to be on the cards.
