A Jeep 7-seater SUV with ADAS sensor launching in India soon

It’s expected to arrive on our shores in the first half of 2022.

Jeep is preparing a new seven-seater SUV for India based on the Jeep Compass platform. It’s identical to the Commander SUV built in Brazil, although it’ll probably go by a different name. In India, it would compete with the Toyota Fortuner, with prices expected to start around Rs 35 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Jeep three-row SUV has headlamps inspired by the Compass and a unique bumper design. In profile, it looks a lot like the Compass, but the straight window line and wide windows for the third row set it apart from the smaller Jeep SUV. A sensor was spotted in the front bumper of the spy vehicle, which is likely utilised for ADAS technologies that aren’t yet available in the India-spec Compass.

Adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking (AEB), blind-spot recognition, rear cross-traffic detection, lane departure warning, park assist, and adaptive headlights are all included in the Brazil-spec Commander. Pedestrians, cyclists, and even motorcycles can be detected by the Commander’s AEB system, which is a useful feature in India. It also comes with seven airbags as standard, but how Jeep plans its variations in India remains to be seen.

The Jeep seven-seater SUV is expected to be powered by engines similar to those found in the Compass, which include a 170PS 2-litre diesel engine and a 160PS 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine. With the petrol and diesel engines, a six-speed manual gearbox could be standard, and automatic options will be offered.

We should see the Jeep seven-seater SUV for the first time in the coming months, ahead of its arrival in the first part of this year. It will go up against the Skoda Kodiaq.
