Jeep Compass: Variants Explained

Modified On Sep 19, 2017 07:25 PM By Raunak for Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass is available in three main trims and two optional variants but the engine, transmission and drivetrain options make for an eclectic and perplexing mix. So which variant should you put your money on?

Jeep Compass

Launched on July 31, 2017, the Jeep Compass is priced between Rs 15.16 lakh and 21.37 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Prices increased by up to Rs 72,000 post the increase in cess over GST w.e.f. September 9, 2017, though if you are planning to buy one they are still quite attractive.

Highlights

  • The Compass is available in three trim levels – Sport (base), Longitude and the range-topping Limited. There are two more optional trims as well, based on the top two variants – Longitude (O) and Limited (O). In all, there are 10 variants to choose from including the 4x4 variant which is available only in the top-end diesel spec
  • If you are considering buying the petrol Compass, the 1.4-litre MultiAir II turbocharged petrol engine is available only with the base Sport and top-spec Limited 4x2 variants.  
  • The base petrol Sport trim can only be had with a 6-speed manual transmission, while the top-spec Limited petrol trims are only available with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
  • The diesel doesn’t offer an automatic option yet. Although, the diesel auto (9-speed auto) will be launched early next year.
  • Only the diesel-powered Compass gets the 4x4 option in the top-spec Limited and Limited (O) trims

Uconnect 5.0

Is it worth buying?

The base Jeep Compass Sport is priced very aggressively in the mid-sized SUV space. If you’re on a budget and want to join the Jeep bandwagon, this is the variant for you. The Sport trim doesn't skimp on safety either and offers almost all of the Compass' safety features, including ESC and TCS! But Jeep has missed out on some essentials such as rear-parking sensors and the AC is manual, which is disappointing for a car that’s priced over Rs 15 lakh. On the infotainment front, Jeep offers a 5-inch touchscreen in its base trim. It’s the same as in other markets but doesn’t offer support for Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Jeep Compass Longitude/ Longitude (O)

Price (ex-showroom, New Delhi)

Variants Prices 
Diesel Longitude Rs 17.03 lakh 
Diesel Longitude (O) Rs 17.85 lakh

Over the Sport trim, the Longitude offers:

  • Dual-tone interior: black and beige 
  • Offers front and rear fog lamps 
  • Rides on 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels 
  • Equipped with passive keyless entry system with engine push-button start-stop 

Jeep Compass

  • Automatic power folding outside rearview mirrors
  • Offers rear parking sensors 

Longitude (O) additionally offers Uconnect 7.0 featuring a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support along with controls for the dual-zone climate control system (with activated carbon filter). Also offered are projector headlamps and black roof rails.  

Uconnect 7.0

Is it worth buying?

The Longitude ups the premium quotient while the Longitude (O) enhances the experience further with the addition of a 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen with support for CarPlay and Android Auto. Dual-zone climate control has also been added along with projector headlamps in the Limited (O). In our books, the Longitude (O) is the Compass to go for if you want this SUV. Sadly, both the Longitude and the Longitude (O) are not offered with a petrol option which makes the about Rs 2 lakh premium over the Sport variant quite steep.

Is it worth buying?

Hands down, the Limited trim offers you the widest choice of engine and drivetrain options. It is the only variant that offers an automatic option – a 7-speed dual-clutch auto with the 1.4-litre turbo petrol. This is also the only variant which gets a 4x4 option offered with a 2.0-litre diesel/6-speed manual transmission. So, if you wish to go off-roading, the Limited/Limited (O) diesel 4x4 is a no-brainer. Besides, it’s the only variant to offer six airbags!  If 4x4 is not a must, then the Limited diesel is a good enough option for about Rs 2 lakh less.
