The next-gen Jeep Wrangler has officially arrived in India at a starting price tag of INR 63.94 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV has been offered a revised design language while the off-roading capabilities still prevail. The brand will be bringing the Jeep Wrangler as a CBU (Completely Built-Up) unit in India. The boxy off-road SUV is only available with a petrol engine and features a host of contemporary components.

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler has been equipped with premium aluminium components though, the steel body of the SUV is retained. The SUV features a 7-slot grille at the front that has been mated to round headlamps. In addition to these, the brand has now equipped the Wrangler with LED headlamps surrounded by LED DRLs and LED units at the rear. The rear bumper of the offroad SUV now features a more muscular look while the wheel arches are now more flared.

Coming to the interiors, the next-gen Jeep Wrangler has been offered a redesigned dashboard design which complements its premium stance. The brand has equipped the SUV with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The traditional outlook for all the mounted controls remains the same while the all-black leather-interior further adds to its exclusive looks.

According to the reports, the new Wrangler is 130mm longer, 17mm wider and 9mm taller when compared to its previously available version. Powering the 2019 Jeep Wrangler is a new 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 270HP and a peak torque of 400Nm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The brand has equipped the updated SUV with its SelecTrac 4×4 drivetrain system. The engine is BS4-compliant though the brand is likely to make it BS6-compliant before April 1, 2020. The standard safety kit includes ABS with EBS, dual airbags at the front, traction control, hill assist and more. The brand is offering a 2-year warranty with the purchase of every 2019 Jeep Wrangler.

Mahindra Thar Modified Into Jeep Wrangler: Thar is the closest cousin that Jeep Wrangler could get in the Indian car market. When comparing the prices for both of them, one could say that Thar is actually a value-for-money product within the off-road universe. Jeep Studio, a Coimbatore based modifier, recently worked on a brand new Mahindra Thar and brought this beautiful product at the end.

Perfectly Modified Mahindra Thar
Perfectly Modified Mahindra Thar by Jeep Studio

Transforming the Mahindra Thar into Wrangler took a lot more than just putting new parts on the existing panels. It was a deep study based on the architecture of both Thar and the three-door model of the Wrangler that helped them achieve perfection in the final design.

Not even a single change was made in such a way that it would have made servicing the vehicle tough for Mahindra dealerships. All parts around the engine bay were kept stock as that would have helped the customer get easy spares in case of an emergency. Still, the biggest change was the addition of a metal roof that runs right from the Thar’s windshield to the rear end of the SUV.

Apart from the front glass windows, a non-movable and toughened glass window has been used for the rear section. Rearview mirrors were borrowed from an actual Jeep Wrangler while the interior has been given a premium finish for enhanced driving feel. Front and rear lights have been replaced with LED units while a complete front-end transformation has been given for that premium Jeep feel.

Maxxis off-road tyres further helped this Thar gain more muscle during its transformation. Apart from the donor Thar, one will need to pay around INR 6.50 lakh to Jeep Studio in order to get all these changes. The modifier left the engine and performance section untouched for the exclusive Mahindra Thar style riding. The SUV comes with a 2498cc, four-cylinder turbo diesel engine producing 105 BHP and 247 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox while 4×4 comes as standard on the top-spec model.

Jeep Compass marked its debut in India 2 years back and the SUV recently got a diesel-automatic variant in the form of the Compass Trailhawk. This variant of the car is priced at INR 26.80 lakh, which is INR 3.70 lakh premium over the Limited Plus variant. The high price tag surely has disappointed a lot of buyers who were hoping for an affordable diesel AT variant. As per the latest details available, the company is expected to launch a cheaper diesel-automatic variant of Compass by Diwali this year.

Like the recently launched Trailhwak variant, the upcoming Jeep Compass model will also be BSVI-compliant with a 2.0-litre diesel engine, which is good enough to produce 173 HP of maximum power along with 350 Nm of peak torque. There will be a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox like the Trailhawk version.

However, there is still a doubt whether the diesel-automatic configuration will be available only on the Limited Plus variant or on mid-spec variants as well. Also, there are chances that the diesel-AT is likely to be available only with the front-wheel-drive models, to keep 4×4 exclusive for the Trailhawk variant.

Limited Plus Variant of Jeep Compass

Exact specifications and the equipment list for the car will only be available when this variant will be close to market launch. Currently, the base model for the Jeep Compass starts at INR 15.60 lakh and goes up to INR 23.11 lakh for the Limited Plus variant. Right Now, the buyers have Mahindra XUV500, Volkswagen Tiguan, and the Hyundai Tucson as the premium options but now they will get one more option as the much more affordable diesel-automatic Compass is all set to launch in India soon.

Jeep has officially launched the off-road version of their premium compact SUV by the name Compass Trailhawk at a price tag of INR 26.80 Lakh (ex-showroom). The bookings for the SUV were already open since June 11 at every Jeep dealership across India at a token amount of INR 50,000. The all-new Trailhawk edition of the Compass is INR 3.70 lakh costlier than its existing highest spec variant, Compass Limited Plus, which is available for INR 23.11 Lakh (ex-showroom).

Powering the Jeep Compass Trailhawk is the similar 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel Multijet II engine that performs the duty on the ongoing Jeep Compass variants though the engine is in compliant with BS6 norms for the new edition. The SUV generates a maximum power of 173 HP with a peak torque of 350 Nm. The engine has been mated to a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. One of the major reasons for the increased price tag for the Trailhawk edition is the diesel-automatic version offered by the brand.

The Trailhawk edition has been equipped with Jeep’s ‘Active Drive Low 4×4 system’ that offers the SUV better off-road capabilities and aids them to cover the different terrains with ease. In addition to the Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud modes, the all-new edition of the sub-compact SUV features a low-range, hill-descent control mode as well as Rock Mode for selected terrain.

Coming to the interior, the Jeep Compass Trailhawk gets similar premium functionality when compared to the Limited Plus Edition. It features a 7.0-inch multi-info display, an 8.4-inch infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, cruise control as well as automatic climate control. The off-road SUV also features keyless go and auto start/stop function though the manufacturers have given the panoramic roof a miss for the same, the customers can still avail it as an accessory.

The standard safety features for the Trailhawk includes ABS with EBD, 6 airbags, electronic parking brake, traction control, hill-assist control and more. The all-new Jeep Compass Trailhawk competes in the market with the likes of Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner considering its cost-effectiveness for an off-road SUV.

Jeep India Registers Massive Sales Drop: Taking into account the sales figures of May 2018 and May 2019, the sales of the Jeep SUVs have dropped from 1,518 units to 977 units. The 36% drop in the sales can be understood by looking at several reasons which are responsible for Jeep to receive this amount of downfall in India.

Jeep Compass

First and foremost, the ever-increasing competition in the premium SUV segment has resulted in a drop in sales of Jeep. Tata’s recent SUV Harrier marked its presence in the market by entering into a segment which was dominated by the likes of XUV500 and Compass at a higher price range. In May 2019, Tata sold 1,779 units of the Harrier SUV beating the rivals Mahindra XUV500 and Jeep Compass by 584 units and 802 units respectively.

Tata Harrier

The other primary reason comes in form of pricing, where the base variant of Compass starts at INR 15.60 lakh, its two competitors in the market, the Tata Harrier starts with a base price tag of INR 12.70 lakh and Mahindra’s XUV500 base variant starts at INR 12.23 lakh. The difference in prices of the three SUVs clearly shows why the sales of Jeep Compass has received such a big drop.

Now, the competition is just about to increase as MG Motor has launched its first SUV in India. Known as Hector, the car looks quite promising and is likely to raise the bar. The bookings for the car are also now open with a token amount of INR 50,000. The pricing of the car is not yet revealed but it is likely to be priced around INR 15 lakh for the base model, and will directly compete with the Compass. Jeep India recently revealed the India-spec model of the Compass Trailhawk in India, and the launch is expected to happen in the coming weeks.

Jeep India has finally revealed the much-awaited Compass Trailhawk SUV that is already on sale in many international markets. The upcoming SUV is a more off-road focused variant of the Compass and the company has already begun its production at their Ranjangaon plant ahead of its market launch that is scheduled to take place in the coming weeks.

The brand has officially confirmed that the Compass Trailhawk will come with the much-awaited diesel-automatic configuration. This model will launch with a BSVI compliant 2.0-litre diesel engine which produces 170 HP of maximum power and 350 Nm of peak torque like the Europe-spec model. The SUV will come mated to a super refined 9-speed automatic gearbox.

The Trailhawk comes with Jeep’s hardcore Active Drive Low 4×4 system, which is a four-wheel drive system with a low range, hill descent control, a rear-locking differential, and an additional rock mode for the selected terrain system which brings it to the total of five modes – Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, and Rock.

As far as the interior is concerned, the car gets decent updates, with special Trailhawk badging on the seats and a lot of places around the cabin. The car will also come featured with cruise control, a new instrument cluster with a multi-info display, a panoramic sunroof and a larger touchscreen infotainment system with navigation.

The SUV is likely to get various exterior changes including black trim on the grille and around the fog lamps, dual tone bumper, black ORVMs, and a black decal on the bonnet. It is featured with a single red tow hook at the rear and is likely to get dual-tone alloy wheels. Also, the Compass Trailhawk gets underbody skid plates and all-weather floor mats.

The Compass Trailhawk will come with a higher ground clearance at 205mm which is 27mm more than the standard model. It gets reprofiled front and rear bumpers that will also improve approach and departure angles, along with a higher set intake to improve water wading abilities to 480mm which has a 75mm of increase over the standard compass model.

Coming to the pricing, the Trailhawk is expected to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 26 lakh in the Indian market. The dealers are also expected to officially start accepting the bookings for the rugged Compass Trailhawk in the coming days.

Jeep Wrangler recently scored a very disappointing 1-star safety rating in the ANCAP safety tests, failing one more time after the same test results in the Euro NCAP. The confusing part here is that the official website of the ANCAP is using the same images as Euro NCAP results, creating a state of confusion for the fans.

The test is valid from April 2019 and covers the Wrangler under the large SUV segment. The car was introduced in April on the Australian continent and the model tested here comes with four doors. The adult occupant protection rating varies largely because of the lack of emergency automatic braking on the Jeep variant used for the test.

The pole test scored zero out of eight and further made the number worse in overall terms. The overall rating for adult protection was 50% while child occupant protection was scored at 80%. Jeep Wrangler was listed with just 49% rating when it comes to pedestrian protection.

The official report was published online on May 28. The lowest score was 32% for the safety assist systems, primarily due to lack of features like lane keep assist and automatic braking. The rating is applicable to Sport, Overland, and Rubicon variant of the car.

Jeep Wrangler can be had with a 3.6L V6 petrol and 2.2L turbo-diesel engine, keeping 4WD as standard on all the available variants. The head-protecting airbags are seen for the front seats only while the combination of side and chest protection airbags is available in both the rows.

The most sensitive position for impact was rear seat passenger neck and chest area while unstable passenger cell further deducted points when concerning the safety of the driver. The car is primarily built for off-road use and thus, speeding may not be the first concern for most drivers but, before entering the off-road track, the car will be driven on the road for sure.

Tata Harrier Beats Compass & XUV500 (Sales Report): Tata Harrier has proven itself to be unbeatable, taking over the mid-size segment baton from the Mahindra XUV500 and Jeep Compass in April 2019 again. The car was good for 2075 units in the 30-day period. On the other hand, Mahindra posted 1508 units for the XUV500 and Jeep got 1204 buyers for the Compass.

If Harrier keeps this pace and accelerates slightly further, it can even post a number that is equal to both the cars combined. Hyundai Creta is the favourite mid-size SUV in India with 10,487 units on the charts, leaving space for Mahindra Scorpio and Maruti S-Cross before the Harrier appears on this list.

The popularity of XUV500, Compass, and Harrier is so high that options like Renault Duster, Nissan Kicks, Tata Safari, Renault Captur, and Nissan Terrano are getting almost negligible numbers. The impressive design of Harrier and its practical five-seat layout makes it popular among buyers upgrading from cars priced around INR 12-14 lakh.

The 2.0L engine setup with 140 HP is a great option as more power definitely means an impact on the mileage. The speed of the improving sales figure also confirms that Tata Harrier will soon overtake S-Cross to become the third best-selling product of the segment.

Tata is fearing none of the current-generation products as they are offering conventional designs in front of the modern Harrier design. However, the arrival of MG Hector is an indirect threat to the brand. They are using the same 2.0L engine with 170 HP and even offer petrol automatic for more effective driving.

Tata Harrier and MG Hector are similar in terms of facial design language while the rear of both cars brings different opinions from the fans. The Harrier is feature rich and MG enjoys the tag of being exclusive. It would be interesting to see what happens once the launch of Hector in June comes near.
