Jeep India has launched a new variant 'Sport Plus' for its popular Compass SUV in India. The new Jeep Compass Sport Plus is priced at Rs 15.99 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi) and is based on the base 'Sport' trim.
The new Sport Plus trim will sit between the base 'Sport' and the mid-spec 'Longitude' variant in the brand's Compass lineup in the Indian market. The new Jeep Compass Sport Plus will feature a number of additional equipment over the base trim. This includes new 16-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, black roof rails and rear parking sensors. This will be in addition to other standard features such as electric parking brake, disc brake on all four wheels and the frequency selected damping.
Kevin Flynn, India President & MD, FCA, stated:
"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."
The Jeep Compass Sport Plus continues to be powered by the same petrol and diesel engine options as seen on the other variants. This includes a 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine producing 173bhp and 350Nm of torque and a 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo-petrol engine churning out 162bhp and 250Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. The diesel engine claims fuel efficiency figures of 17.1km/l while the petrol engine claims 14.1km/l.
