FCA India has today launched the entry level trim for their best selling Compass SUV. The Jeep Compass Sport Plus is introduced as the base model on the lineup and is priced at Rs. 15.99 Lakh Ex Delhi.
The Jeep Compass Sport Plus comes with additional new features added as standard to the equipment list which include 16-inch sporty alloys, dual-zone auto air-conditioning (climate control), rear parking sensors and black roof rails, in addition to the 21 key features already available on the vehicle like the Electric Parking Brake, Disc Brakes on all four wheels and the sophisticated Frequency Selective Damping, which also come standard across the entire Jeep Compass range.
FCA India President and Managing Director, Kevin Flynn says, “When customers buy a Jeep anywhere in the world, they get immersed in the SUV brand’s fascinating lineage, superior on- and off-road dynamics coupled to the intuitive comfort and luxury they offer. Our Jeep customers in India own one for these very reasons. The new Jeep Compass Sport Plus has all the substantial elements that make it a true Jeep. It now raises the desirability quotient with this new feature-addition so Jeep customers can always get a vehicle a notch above the rest and at a good price.”
Recently Tata Motors had launched the Harrier which is priced at Rs. 12.69 Lakh a lot lower to the Compass, now with the launch of the Compass Sport Plus the price gap between the two reduces with the Compass getting loaded with more features even on the base trim.
