Jeep Compass Limited Edition has been launched in India in a price range of Rs 21.07 lakh to Rs 22.85 lakh (all prices ex-showroom Delhi). The pre-orders for this variant of Jeep Compass have been going on for a few days now, and the deliveries are expected to begin in early October. The Jeep Compass Limited Plus will be company's flagship offering in India till the Compass Trailhawk is introduced in the markets here.
The Jeep Compass Limited Plus has been placed at the top of the Compass line-up in India and comes with a few more bells and whistles than what is available with the existing Compass portfolio. The first in the list of additions made to the Compass Limited Plus is the two-pane panoramic sunroof. The SUV stands on new 18-inch alloy wheels with black and polished aluminium finish.
Another major change has been made with the interiors of Jeep Compass Limited Plus, which has been equipped with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Other variants of Jeep Compass usually feature a 7-inch or smaller infotainment systems. The driver and front seats are electrically adjustable chairs, and have been covered in tan leather upholstery along with the rear seats.
On the security front, the Jeep Compass Limited Plus gets six-airbags - dual front, front side and full-length side curtain - instead of just the standard dual airbags provided with lower trims of the Compass portfolio. The new variant of Jeep Compass also gets automatic headlamps and rain-sensing wipers.
