Base variant Jeep Compass and Meridian price reduction ended on 31st March 2023 – Both SUVs updated to meet BS6 Phase 2 norms
Update : Jeep says, ‘We would like to clarify that the discount was applicable till *31st March 2023*. However at the time of updating the blog, the same prices still reflected on the company website. Monday, 10, April, 2023, (7:45 pm).
Currently produced at Ranjangaon facility, both Jeep Compass and Meridian are aimed at premium segments. These are even exported to several global markets. To boost its appeal in India and establish a much stronger portfolio, Jeep made price revisions applicable till March 2023.
This price precedes the mandated RDE norms compliance which necessitates OBD-II diagnostics tools for real-time monitoring of emissions. With the entry-level trims, Jeep had actually slashed prices by up to Rs. 2.35 lakh. This would have helped draw a lot more footfall into the dealerships.
