Jeep India launched the Compass SUV back in 2017 in the Indian market. Since its inception, the SUV has been a popular name in its segment as it comes loaded with several standard safety features. The Compass is available in a five-seater variant, but there reports that there are some new models expected to be launched in the country.
Among the upcoming range of vehicles is also a 3-row SUV (seven-seater) codenamed the ‘Low D 3-row’ SUV, which could also be badged as the Jeep Grand Compass. Along with that, there will also be a new sub-4-meter SUV as well.
The Jeep Grand Compass is expected to come with a longer wheelbase compared to the regular Compass. The styling of the SUV is likely to be based on the Compass facelift (expected to launch in India early next year). It could get a revised grille and updated headlamps and bumpers. The Low D 3-row SUV is also expected to get a large third window and S-shaped trim along the roofline.
The Grand Compass could be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The seven-seater Jeep Compass is expected to go on sale in India sometime during the second quarter of 2021. Once launched in India, the SUV will go up against the likes of the Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace, Hyundai Tucson, Skoda Kodiaq, and the Toyota Fortuner.
The company recently launched the Compass BS6 models in India starting at Rs 16.49 lakh, ex-showroom. It also discontinued the Sport variant, making the ‘Sport Plus’ the new base-variant in the SUV’s lineup.
The Jeep Compass has been a really successful model in the Indian market as it offers lots of space and loads of standard features.
