Jeep ​was​ ​the​ ​first​ ​company​ ​in​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​world ​ to​ ​ ​ build ​ SUV. ​ Jeep​ ​ is​ ​ a​ ​ brand​ ​ ​of ​ ​American automobiles ​ that​ ​ is​ ​ a​ ​ ​division ​ of​ ​ FCA(Fiat​ ​ Chrysler​ ​ Automobiles)​ ​ US ​​ LLC,​ ​ ​a​ ​wholly ​owned​ subsidiary ​ of​ ​ Fiat.​

American​ ​icon​ ​jeep​ ​came​ ​to​ ​India​ ​last​ year​ ​ ​with ​ a​ ​ ​bunch ​​of​ ​pricy​ ​imports​ ​and​ ​that​ ​really ​ ​didn’t leave ​ that​ ​ much​ ​ of​ ​ impression.​ ​ ​But ​ now​ ​ with​ ​​ the ​ ‘COMPASS’ ​ Jeep​ ​can ​ grab​ ​ ​a​ ​significant position ​ in​ ​ the​ ​ Indian​ ​ market​ ​​as ​ the​ ​ COMPASS​ ​​is ​​manufactured ​ in​​ ​INDIA ​ ​( Ranjangaon​ ​facility) and ​ is​ ​ available​ ​ at​ ​ an​ ​ ​unbelievable ​ price​ ​ of​​ ​Rs.​14.95​ lakh​​ ​(ex​ showroom).​

If​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​own​ ​the​ ​brand​ ​JEEP,​ then​ ​ ​COMPASS ​is​​ ​the​ cheapest​ ​ ​vehicle ​ you​ ​ will​ ​ ​get. Company​ ​has​ ​two​ ​more​ ​products​ ​viz.,​ ​Grand​ ​Cherokee​ ​and​ ​Wrangler​ ​but​ ​being​ ​imported​ ​they are​ ​quite​ ​expensive.​ ​In ​ their​ ​ ​segments​ too​ ​ ​they​ ​are ​​expensive. ​​So​ ​let’s​ ​see​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​more​ ​about
COMPASS.

FRONT​ ​LOOK

In​ ​comparison​ ​to​ ​it’s​ ​siblings​ ​i.e., ​ ​ Grand ​ Cherokee​ ​ and​ ​ ​Wrangler, ​ ​COMPASS ​ is​ ​ not​ ​ that​ ​ big​ ​ but​ when ​ ​viewed​ ​from​ ​the​ ​front​ ​it​ ​doesn’t​ ​seem​ that​ ​​small.​ ​From​ ​some​ ​angle​ ​Compass​ reminds​​ ​us of ​ Grand​ ​ Cherokee.​ ​ We​ ​ can​ ​ ​say ​ Compass​ ​as​​ ​baby​ ​grand​ ​Cherokee.

The​ ​first​ ​thing​ ​which​ ​grab​ ​your​ ​attention​ ​is​ ​the​ ​signature​ ​7​ ​slot​ ​grille ​ and​ ​ ​those ​ slightly​ ​ sunken​ projector ​ headlights​ ​ ​with​ ​DRLs​ ​which​ ​works​ ​really​ ​well​ ​with​ the​​ ​chrome ​​finish.

The​ ​Clamshell ​ bonnet​ ​ is​ ​ quite​ ​ impressive​ ​ which​ ​ ​gives ​ ​ COMPASS​ ​a ​ muscular​ ​ look.​ ​ The​ ​ fog​ lights​ ​are ​ ​quite​ ​large​ ​and​ ​those ​chrome​​ ​finish​ in​​ ​a​ ​rectangular​ way​ ​ gives​ ​ them​ ​ a​ ​ kick.​ ​ The​ ​ front​ bumper​ ​is​ ​quite​ ​impressive​ which​ ​ ​gives​ ​you​ ​honeycomb​ ​design.

SIDE​ ​PROFILE

Side​ ​profile​ ​is​ ​very​ ​unique​ ​with​ ​chrome​ ​strip ​ ​going ​all​​ ​around​ ​the​ ​window​ ​lines​ ​and​ ​the​ ​black cladding ​ with​ ​ doors​ ​ and​ ​ ​the ​wheels​ ​ is​ ​ remarkable.​ ​​ With ​ square​ ​​wheel ​ arches​ ​ Compass​ ​got​ ​a​ muscular ​ and​ ​ SUV​ ​ look.​ ​ It​​ is​ ​ 4398​ ​​mm ​ long,​ ​ 1667​ ​ mm​ ​ in​​ ​height ​ ​with ​ 17​ ​ ​inches ​ ​wheel ​ base​ ​ and​ a ​ huge​ ​ ground​ ​ clearance​ ​ of​ ​ 178​ mm.​ ​ The​ ​most ​ stylish​ ​ part​ ​ is​ ​​the ​ ​way ​ ​black ​ ​roof ​ ​drops ​ to​ ​ the​ rear​ ​and​ ​shark​ ​fin​ ​like​ D-pillars.​

BACK​ ​PROFILE

In​ ​rear​ ​view​ also,​ ​ COMPASS​ ​ looks​ ​ very​ ​ neat​ ​ and​ ​ those​ ​ spoilers​ ​ ​with ​ roof​ ​ rails​ ​ ​wins ​ ​the ​ ​show. There’s​ ​a​ stop​ ​ ​light​ ​in​ the​ ​ ​middle​ ​of​ ​the​ ​spoiler ​ and​ ​ ​then​ ​you​ see​ ​ the​ ​ Jeep​ ​ logo​ ​ right​ ​ in​ ​ the​ centre.​ ​Black​ ​cladding ​ along​ ​ with​ ​ the​ ​ bumper​ ​ and​ ​ those​ ​ ​rear ​ Fog​ ​ lamps​ ​ ​are ​ tremendous.​ Reflector​ ​glass​ ​and ​ wrapped​ ​ ​around ​​LED​ ​tail​ ​lamps​ ​are​ ​heart​ ​winning​ ​and​ complete​​ ​the​ ​rear view ​ of​ ​ Compass.​
