Jeep fans, listen up! The Jeep Compass compact-SUV will be launched in India on July 31.

Jeep India had begun accepting bookings for the Compass on June 20, 2017, with the company claiming that it had received over 1000 confirmed bookings within a week.

The Jeep Compass is being manufactured at Fiat Chrysler Automobile's plant in Ranjangaon, near Pune, Maharashtra. It is the only FCA factory in the world which is assembling the right-hand-drive Compass right now; most of the SUVs assembled here will be headed for international markets like the UK and Japan.

Jeep had confirmed (at the first drive event in Goa earlier last month) that it would only launch the diesel-powered variants of the Compass at first. Petrol-powered variants will be launched subsequently, and more variants/features can be added or removed as per demand.
