Here is a speculative rendering that shows a hatchback version of the Jeep Compass SUV, based on the Fiat Argo, we think it can be a brilliant successor to the Fiat Punto
The Jeep Compass is the highest selling premium 5-seater SUV in its price segment. The handsome design, world-class engines, and the brand value of Jeep make it a hot favourite of many. However, have you imagined what the Jeep Compass hatchback would look like?
To help you visualize the Jeep Compass hatchback, here are a couple of speculative renderings. Basically, the artist has slapped on the front and the rear of the Compass on the Fiat Argo. The result is a really handsome hatchback that could be a brilliant successor to the ageing Fiat Punto.
Thanks to the bodywork of the Argo, the Jeep Compass hatchback imagined in these renders looks very European. The crisp creases and the rising beltline makes the side profile look very dynamic. The precision cut alloy wheels and the flared wheel arches impart a touch of sportiness.
The engine options include a 1.0-litre FireFly three-cylinder engine that produces 72 hp and 101.99 Nm, a 1.3-litre FireFly four-cylinder engine that outputs 101 hp and 134.35 Nm, and a 1.8-litre E.Torq Evo engine that produces 135 hp and 184.37 Nm. All the engines are flex-fuel units.
The Jeep Compass is available in India in two engine options – 1.4-litre Multiair turbocharged petrol and 2.0-litre Multijet II turbocharged diesel. The petrol engine produces a maximum power of 162 PS and a peak torque of 250 Nm. It is available with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The diesel engine offers a maximum power of 173 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. 4WD is optional on the diesel variant. Soon, Jeep India will launch a new range-topping Limited Plus variant, which will have a dual-tone paint scheme and an electric sunroof.
