The delivery of the petrol variant of Jeep Compass will commence around Diwali. The report comes as a relief for many as the booking for the model had begun long back in June.

According to an Autocar India report, while both petrol and diesel variants had been launched together, the delivery of the latter had begun as early as August. As per the reports the company will start the delivery of the automatic petrol variant first followed by that of the manual version.

As reported earlier by Moneycontrol, the petrol variant will come with a  1.4 litre petrol engine generating maximum power of 162ps. Coming in three variants i.e. Sport, Longitude and Limited and spread across seven trims the SUV will come in seven-speed auto or  six-speed manual gearbox.
