The phenomenal success of the Jeep Compass is believed to be the reason behind Hyundai Africa announcing the launch of the new 4×4 Tucson. Yesterday, we saw another rival of Compass, Mahindra XUV500 getting a new W9 variant, probably due to the same reason. Priced aggressively, Jeep Compass is off to a great start in Africa. It has already received more than 10,000 booking orders.
