Jeep Compass SUV launched in India with prices starting from Rs 14.95 Lakh

Jeep Compass has been launched in India at a very competitive price undercutting its segment rivals the XUV500, Hyundai Tucson and Tata Hexa.

The new Jeep Compass has been finally launched in India at a price starting from Rs ₹ 14.95 lakhs to Rs 20.65 lakhs. Unlike some of its rivals, the Jeep Compass has both petrol and diesel options as well. With local production at Fiat’s Ranjangaon facility, Jeep are able to price the Compass very competitively.

Available in three variants: Sport, Longitude and Limited, there will be lots of options for potential buyers. The Jeep Compass has already got up to 4000 bookings according to Fiat and this pricing should attract more buyers to the showrooms. We had already covered the Compass in detail earlier, now lets see how it stacks up to its rivals.

How does the Jeep Compass compare to its rivals?

The main rivals for the Jeep Compass in the Indian SUV segment are the Mahindra XUV 500 and Hyundai Tucson. Compass has the Hyundai Tucson on pricing with the Korean SUV starting at Rs 21 lakhs and going all the way to Rs 30 lakhs. The Compass looks to be more value for money and capable than the Tucson especially in the four wheel drive version. Styling is also more butch and like an off-roader whereas the Hyundai Tucson looks more like an urban SUV.

Coming to the Mahindra XUV 500, in the lower variants, the Mahindra looks to be the better deal but coming to the all wheel drive top end version, the Jeep Compass undercuts it and has more off-road tech as standard as well. The cheetah like design language of the XUV 500 might be cool for some, but the Compass will get more eyes and jealous glances. The Mahindra though will be cheaper to run and maintain in the long run.

So it all comes down now to after sales and service of the Jeep Compass. If Fiat can have a sound dealer network and good after sales service, it will have a winner in its hands.
