Business Traveller (India) - - INDIA CAR REPORT 2018 -

Sleek and sharp, the Jeep Com­pass dom­i­nates the road with its con­fi­dent, el­e­gant stance. Jeep’s his­toric de­sign cues are un­mis­tak­able — the seven-slot grille and the trape­zoidal wheel arches — a per­fect blend of a rugged off-roader and an el­e­gant ur­ban ve­hi­cle. This is seen in the Jeep Ac­tive Drive 4X4 Sys­tem, which can eas­ily switch be­tween two and four-wheel drive, as per ter­rain re­quire­ment. The SUV is pow­ered by a 1.4 litre Mul­ti­air petrol en­gine ( a two-litre diesel op­tion avail­able), which trans­lates to a power of 162 ps, promis­ing an im­pres­sive av­er­age of 14.1 kmpl. Driv­ers have a choice be­tween a seven-speed au­to­matic gear trans­mis­sion or a six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion. In the 4X4 mode, the car comes with a Se­lec-Ter­rain dial where you can choose dif­fer­ent modes like Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud, each which ren­der dif­fer­ent throt­tle re­sponses and trac­tion. As rugged and mus­cu­lar as it is on the out­side, the Jeep Com­pass is soft and plush on the in­side. Perks in­clude a leather-cov­ered steer­ing wheel, Jeep’s sig­na­ture UCon­nect in­fo­tain­ment panel with Ap­ple CarPlay and An­droid Auto con­nec­tiv­ity, a two-zone cli­mate con­trol and an in­for­ma­tion clus­ter that can be cus­tomised. jeep-in­
