Jeep has launched 2WD variants of the Compass diesel with an automatic transmission option at Rs 23.99 lakh.

Jeep Compass diesel 2WD automatic pricing, variants
Jeep offers the updated Compass in five trims – Sport, Longitude, Longitude+, Limited, and Model S. The Jeep Compass Sport trim continues to be the entry-spec model; offered only with the diesel-manual powertrain, and with a price of Rs 20.49 lakh, the manual variants see a drop in price. Next, a new Compass Longitude trim joins the line-up with a 2WD manual, along with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, making this the new entry-point to the Compass automatic range. Prices for the Compass Longitidue are Rs 23.99 lakh and the automatic diesel powertrain has a fuel efficiency figure of 16.2kpl.
The updated Compass Longitude+ trim comes equipped with a panoramic sunroof and a wireless charger, in addition to all the features available on the Longitude trim. Up next is the Jeep Compass Limited which comes with a new Black Shark edition with an all-black interior, black alloy wheels and 'Ignite Red' highlights throughout the SUV.
Completing the Compass line-up is the Model S, which continues to be the top-spec trim and now comes with a new 2WD automatic form, alongside the existing 4WD automatic variants. Additionally, all trims feature a refreshed design for the alloy wheels, while the new chrome grille is available only on the Limited and Model S trims.
Jeep also unveiled the Meridian Overland Edition, which gets a new grille and alloy wheel design as well as an interior copper-based colour theme.
Jeep Compass diesel engine and gearbox
The Jeep Compass with the automatic gearbox was previously limited to just the 4x4 variants. With this launch, Jeep aims to target customers looking for the convenience of an automatic gearbox, but not wanting the 4x4 hardware.
Powering the Compass is a 2.0-litre Turbocharged engine that makes 170hp and 350Nm of torque. Jeep currently offers the Compass range in India with only the diesel option as the American marque shelved the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine due to BS6 Stage II emissions norms. However, as we've reported before, the petrol variants are slated to make a comeback sometime in the near future.
