Jeep Car Dealer, Chennai Talks About The New SUV- Compass

From Volkswagen’s Tiguan to Nissan’ Qashqai, the all-new Compass by Jeep is stepping into enviable shoes. The mid-sized SUV has much to compete with, and we think it is ready to take on the task. The first front look at Compass makes it clear that it is slightly smaller than Grand Cherokee. From the rear, it has a distinctive and clear profile. Altogether, the car has a very robust and solid feel.

The interiors of the new Jeep sway away from luxury and stand firmly on the ground of durability. That said, the interiors are remarkably comfortable and pleasant from the very first instance. The driving position offers incredible visibility and complete command. The seat itself is supportive and snug. The best part is that the SUV provides sufficient space both in the front and the rare for tall people.

The cockpit has a nice layout but tends towards the traditional side. Unlike the recent trend of minimalism, there is an infotainment touchscreen along with dials and buttons for AC control. The screen is 8.4 inches.
The back seats of the SUV do not lie completely flat, but they can be folded to increase the boot space from 438 litres to 1693 litres.

What You Need To Know Before Buying The Jeep Compass In Chennai

The Engine

The good thing about Jeep Compass in Chennai is the many engine options it offers suiting a varying budget. For those who want something lighter on the pocket, the best choice is the 1.6-litre diesel engine of 118bhp. The second option is with a slight drop in the economy is the 2.0-litre diesel engine of 138bhp. The top alternative is 168bhp diesel engine that comes equipped with automatic gear and four-wheel drive.
For those who prefer a petrol car, Compass offers only two engine alternatives – 138 and 168bhp, both in 1.4-litre units.

The Drive

As jeep dealers in Chennai, we get most questions about the diesel engine. So, we tested it out. The engine Compass utilised is not the most sophisticated one in the industry. The first turn of the key and the presence of it is felt with the sound and slight rough accelerations. But within a few seconds, the car settles down. The Jeep Compass takes about 9.5 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kmph.

The Ride

Even with not the most powerful engine on the block, the transmission is smooth, which makes for a comfortable ride. The only issue is that the ride zones into the floaty side. On challenging roads, especially corners, the Compass has a slight body roll, but the brilliant traction of the car compensates it. As long as you take is easy with the SUV, the Jeep should work well for anyone!

The Compass Options A Jeep Dealer In Chennai May Have

Right now, Jeep car dealers offer consumers four trims, the Sport, the Limited, the Longitude and the Trailhawk. The final one is meant for rough and tough use and off-roading. The basic model comes with these standard accessories and equipment:

If you wish for the 8.4 infotainment screen on the car, then the models Longitude and above are the right choices. The Longitude Compass model also comes fitted with:

The Limited model has everything Longitude has, plus:

Currently, the SUV market is brimming with models that soft-roaders. They appear like SUVs but rarely have the four-wheel drive. Most of them are meant for the soft roads of the city and highways with only front-wheel drives. The Jeep Compass, on the other hand, is like a thoroughbred with its 4×4 drive.

But like every other car, there are compromises that the Compass makes. Yes, the SUV is indeed a looker, but it has its fair share of tiny problems like the rear parcel shelf that requires a trick to extract.

To summarise, if you are out shopping for a vehicle at a Jeep car dealer in the metropolis, then Compass makes for a good option. It is a beauty to look at. It has sufficient space, and for a mid-sized SUV, it comes really well-equipped. Moreover, unlike most of its counterparts, the SUV is meant for off-road drives. The diesel engine is average, but the durability of the vehicle makes up for it along with the comfy ride.
