Tests Reveal Mixed Mileage Numbers For Jeep Compass Trailhawk

  • Sep 19, 2019

FCA India Automobiles, back in June, introduced the Jeep Compass Trailhawk sports utility vehicle with BS-VI engine. The four-cylinder, 2.0-litre motor produces less power than the BS-IV version found in other Compass models. The Trailhawk’s engine is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission (AT) and is the only Compass model available with a diesel-automatic combination.

The Compass Trailhawk was recently put through a series of tests to reveal its actual mileage numbers. The motor produces 170PS maximum power at 3,750rpm and 350Nm peak torque at 1,750-2,500rpm. While Jeep claims that the average fuel efficiency of the Compass Trailhawk is 14.9kmpl, tests revealed that the midsized SUV offered 11.7kmpl in city driving conditions, and 17.5kmpl on the highway.

The actual fuel efficiency derived from the Trailhawk is mixed, since the car offers a lesser mileage in the city and more on the highway than what has been claimed by the company.

Driving the car in city traffic with occasional light highway journey gets a fuel efficiency of over 12kmpl. However, driving the Compass Trailhawk on long stretches of roads and on highways, yields a better mileage of around 15kmpl. A mileage of around 14kmpl is expected while traveling an equal among in city traffic and on highways.

The fuel efficiency numbers revealed in the tests are not sacrosanct. Like any other vehicle, the mileage of the Jeep Compass Trailhawk will depend on a number of factors that include the car’s health and driving conditions. The fuel efficiency will also vary according to individual driving styles.

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk commands an ex-showroom starting price of ₹26.8 lakh. The car has an impressive list of features that include an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Jeep Connect, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, cruise control, an updated 7-inch multi-information display (MID) unit. It competes with the Hyundai Tucson in the Indian market.
