Jeep has added a new variant to its best-selling Compass SUV in India. The Limited Plus is the new top of the range trim of the Jeep Compass and like before, it will be offered in three derivatives- two diesel options and a single petrol one. The Jeep Compass Limited Plus diesel 4X2 variant is priced at Rs 21.07 lakh while the diesel 4X4 variant will set you back by Rs 22.85 lakh. On the other hand, the Limited Plus petrol 4X2 automatic variant costs Rs 21.41 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
New features for the Jeep Compass Limited Plus
The Jeep Compass Limited Plus now packs even more premium features like automatic HID headlamps and wipers. There are new ‘Jewel tone’ 18inch alloys, which are bigger than the 17inch ones offered on the Longitude and Limited variants.
On the inside there’s a host of new upgrades. There’s a bigger 8.4inch UConnect touch screen infotainment display, which is an upgrade over the 7inch display on the other variants. On the convenience front, the driver’s seat is eight-way electrically adjustable with memory function. There’s even a four-way lumbar support system to take care of your back according to your preference. Another swanky addition is a panoramic sunroof that the company says is the largest in its segment.
