While ago, Jeep launched the New Compass Limited Plus variant which makes it the new top trim level of the Compass line up. This new top spec variant is priced at Rs 21.07 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). Jeep had already started with the bookings of the Limited Plus variant and it is now known that the deliveries will commence from the 1st week of October.
In comparison with the previous top trim- the Limited (O), the new Limited Plus variant is expensive by Rs 1 lakh. At this price, the new variant gets additional goodies such as a panoramic sunroof, new design for the alloy wheel just like the one seen on the upcoming TrailHawk edition. Whereas on the inside it comes equipped with a large 8.4 inch touchscreen infotainment unit, tan leather seats, power adjustable with memory function for front rows, automatic headlight unit and rain sensing wipers.
The safety kit on the New Compass Limited Plus variant is updated and it comes equipped with six airbags which includes front dual, front side and full length curtain units on both the sides. As we compare to the other trim level levels on the Compass, they just get front dual airbags.
Mechanically there aren't any changes, hence powering the Limited Plus Jeep Compass is the same engine which is seen under the hood of the standard trims. The petrol version will get the 1.4 litre turbocharged unit which generates 163 horsepower. On the other hand, the diesel version will be powered with the 2.0 litre unit that produces 173 horsepower. The petrol mill will be coupled with the seven speed DCT automatic gearbox, while the diesel unit will be coupled with the six speed manual transmission. Only the Limited Plus diesel version will be offered with both the 4x2 and 4x4 options.
The Compass still misses out on the automatic transmission for the diesel engine. The new Limited Plus variant will join the recently launched Jeep Compass Black Pack Edition which is priced at Rs 20.59 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). The Compass locks horns with the Hyundai Tucson and the Volkswagen Tiguan in the Indian market. And with the editions launched just before the festive season will help further increase in the sales.
