Jeep Compass Facelift Rivals
The Compass can now compete with the top-tier models of the Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Harrier, and Tata Safari thanks to these new 4X2 diesel AT variants, which also lower the starting price of the Compass. The Compass’s starting price increased dramatically once the petrol engine was discontinued earlier this year, placing it well beyond its long-standing competitors.
