Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has started pre-bookings for its Made in India Jeep Compass in India. To pre-book the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), interested customers can either log in to the company’s official website www.jeep-india.com or visit the nearest FCA or Jeep-exclusive showroom and place a pre-booking amount of Rs. 50,000.
The Jeep Compass is manufactured locally at FCA’s state of the art joint-venture facility near Pune. It will be available in three trims – Sport, Longitude and the Limited (top-of-the-line) in five colours – Minimal Grey, Exotica Red, Hydro Blue, Vocal White and Hip Hop Black as well as options in 4×2 and 4×4. It is being offered with two powertrain options – the 160+ HP, 250 Nm Multi-air petrol and the 170+ HP, 350 Nm, Diesel. The SUV will also come with options of the 6-speed manual transmission (Petrol and Diesel) and the 7-speed Dual Dry Clutch Technology Automatic or DDCT (Petrol). Both these engines will be scalable to BS VI regulatory requirements in India.
The Jeep Compass 4×4 will be equipped with Jeep Active Drive and Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. The SUV will come with a Driveline Disconnect Technology (DDT) which disconnects the drive that goes to the rear wheels automatically when not required. This helps in fuel saving and assists safer driving. Thus SUV will offer the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) across the range.
The Jeep Compass will have Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) which is used in performance and luxury vehicles. This technology provides variable damping that adjusts to road undulations. These shock absorbers use a special valve inside to enable an optimal ride at both high and low frequencies.
It also comes with safety features like Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Dynamic Steering Torque (DST), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Adaptive Brake Lights, Panic Brake Assist and many more such features as standard across the range.
