Jeep’s latest entrant in the SUV space in India is the Compass. The 2017 Jeep Compass is an important offering by the American car manufacturer. The Jeep Compass is being manufactured at the company’s Ranjangaon facility near Pune. The same will be the global hub for all right-hand drive vehicles of the company. In addition to India, the Jeep Compass is being manufactured at Toluca in Mexico, Pernambuco in Brazil and Guangzhou in China. The automobile brand has made a total investment of $280 million on its India plant.

In terms of safety, the Jeep Compass will come equipped with six airbags, traction control, hill start assist as well as 50 active and passive safety features, including ABS with EBD, disc brakes and cornering lamps as standard. While the prices of 2017 Jeep Compass have been not announced yet, we believe it should range between Rs 18-25 lakh. We have already compared the 2017 Jeep Compass with the Hyundai Tucson and the Tata Hexa to know if it finds solid middle ground between practicality and luxury.

The Jeep Compass is especially handsome from the front profile. It looks larger than it actually is thanks to the 7-slat grille and the large bumper
