  • The Compass has a bit more competition when it comes to diesel-powered mid-size SUVs. Its 2.0-litre diesel engine is offered with the choice of a 6-speed manual and a class-leading 9-speed automatic. At launch, the facelift offers the 4x4 drivetrain with the diesel-automatic only. In the pre-facelift model, the diesel manual also used to offer the 4x4 option

  • However, the likes of the MG Hector, Tata Harrier, and Mahindra XUV500 are positioned as the more affordable options. Only their top-spec variants are priced within the competitive range of the Compass.

  • The Hector uses the same 2.0-litre diesel engine as the Compass but it is only offered with the 6-speed manual. Its diesel variants are priced from Rs 14.21 lakh and even the top-spec Sharp variant is more affordable than the base-spec Compass Sport diesel.

  • Prices for the diesel-only Tata Harrier start from Rs 14 lakh. It also uses the same 2.0-litre engine as the Hector and Compass but it does offer the option of a 6-speed automatic as well. The top-spec diesel manual XZ+ is priced closest to the entry-level Compass diesel. We have not included the various cosmetic editions of the Harrier such as the Dark and Camo editions.

Mahindra XUV500 engine

  • Mahindra is due to launch the next-gen XUV500 soon. The outgoing model is currently available with a 2.2-litre diesel engine, with the choice of 6-speed manual and automatic gearboxes. Even the top-spec W11 Optional trim, in the manual variant, is more affordable than the base-spec Compass diesel-manual.

  • Once again, the Hyundai Tucson diesel has the highest entry price here. Its 2.0-litre diesel engine is offered with an 8-speed automatic only. It also gets the choice of an AWD variant. It’s base variant is pricier than the Compass’ top-spec diesel-manual Model S variant. However, the top-spec Tucson AWD diesel-auto is more affordable than the top-spec Compass diesel-auto with 4x4.

2021 Jeep Compass

The facelifted Jeep Compass continues to be a premium compact offering in the SUV space in India. It’s a step above the likes of the bigger mid-size Tata Harrier and MG Hector SUVs while still being more accessible than something like the Hyundai Tucson. European SUV rivals like the Skoda Karoq and the Volkswagen Tiguan are due to arrive in India soon and could be priced similar to the Compass.
