India-bound Jeep Compass to use Fiat-sourced engines

The Jeep Compass will be revealed on April 12, 2017. The India-spec Compass though will differ slightly and is expected to be offered with Fiat-sourced engines.

According to reports, the India-spec Jeep Compass could get a 2.0-liter Multijet diesel engine paired with 9-speed automatic gearbox. A 4×4 version of the Compass is also expected to be offered with this diesel engine.

A 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol engine from the Fiat family could also be on offer. This would probably be available on the entry-level Jeep Compass. With 140hp, the Fiat Multiair engine should be peppy enough for city driving and the occasional highway cruise.

The Jeep Compass is expected to be priced around Rs 18-25 lakh when it’s launched later this year.
