ஜீப் காம்பஸ் எஸ்யூவியின் 7 முக்கிய அம்சங்கள்... We know a good handful of you who belong to the fraternity, where the only way to escape the bustling city into the countryside is to Jeep your way there! The Jeep affinity doesn't really need an introduction. Irrespective of which part of the world you come from, chances are you've known or heard of a Jeep. Such is the brand. As a child, I remember growing up admiring heavy-duty men and their rugged Jeeps conquering the uncharted expanse of God's own country, Kerala.Jump to 2017, I had the privilege of driving Jeep's new Compass SUV for India, set to launch in August. In the crowded Compact SUV market, can the Compass hold its own and deliver the Jeep brand's rugged image? We ask, is the Compass a true mud-slugger? Here's what we discovered. Styling At first glance, the Compass looks like a shrunken version of the handsome Grand Cherokee. The Compass sports numerous highlights that are distinctively Jeep, ensuring that it looks more like a proper SUV when compared to highly stylised rivals such as the Tucson, which is a definite head turner in the Indian SUV market, where buyers prefer butch SUVs. On the front, the Compass gets a clamshell bonnet with a slight bulge at the centre and curves inspired by the SR-71 spy plane (one of the fastest planes capable of hitting speeds of Mach 3+). The clamshell bonnet's shut line with the embossed badge flows smoothly over the iconic seven-slot Jeep grille. Each of the slots get a gloss black finish and chrome surround.

Euro NCAP Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier. In the Full Width test, 100% of the width of the car impacts a rigid barrier at 50 Km/h. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 32 km/h into a rigid pole. ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Jeep showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Protection of the front passenger was good for all critical body areas. In the full-width rigid-barrier test, protection of the driver was good. Chest protection for the rear passenger was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of chest compression, but that of other parts of the body was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good and full points were scored. However, in the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was rated as poor, based on high rib compressions, although these remained lower than the values at which the risk of fatal injuries becomes unacceptably high. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection for occupants sat there. The Compass has a standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system. Tests of its performance at the low speeds at which whiplash injuries are often caused showed good performance with collisions avoided or mitigated at all test speeds. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, protection of both child dummies was rated as good or adequate with the exception of the chest of the 6 year dummy, for which dummy readings of deceleration indicated a weak level of protection. In the side barrier test, protection of both dummies was rated as good. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Compass is designed could be properly installed and accommodated. Pedestrian Protection Comments The bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs and the pelvis was well protected by front end of the car. The autonomous emergency braking system does not have pedestrian-detecting functionality. SAFETY ASSIST Comments The Compass has a seatbelt reminder for the front seats only. The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests at highway speeds, with collisions largely avoided or mitigated. A driver-set speed limitation device is standard, as is a lane departure warning system. New 2017 CAR TV "SUBSCRIBE NOW" Music Source: NCM Epic Music Ender Guney

2018 Jeep Compass
Autocar’s Car of the Year joins the fleet; will familiarity lessen or broaden its appeal?
Memories come flooding back. This doesn’t feel like déjà vu…. I’ve actually been here before! That overriding feeling of solidity, that battle tank-like build, the feeling of near invincibility. And I’ve only just driven out of the gate.
Just 800m down the road, it has me going ‘wow’ again with its King Kong-like swagger. Frequented by overloaded trucks that bomb up and down the road all day, our shortcut to the highway is full of massive craters and XXL-sized sinkholes. Other cars crawl or tippy-toe around the broken patches, but I find that if I just lift off the throttle and ‘unload’ the suspension, the Compass just sails over everything. The tough-as-nails suspension pummels everything into submission, as the Mercedes-style Frequency Selective Damping makes the shocks go supple. Yes, there is some mild pitter-patter and some of the holes in the road thump through, but the manner in which the Jeep ‘muscles’ over everything is just special. Boy, does this car deliver a strong first impression? And it doesn’t just deliver it – you’re slam-dunked, totally immersed. I can’t wait to take on some of our not-so-nicely-paved coastal roads in this car. What a long-distance tourer this six-speed, four- wheel-drive Jeep is going to make. The Raan of Kutch, Himalaya passes, the Far East . . . yeah, those too.
Our long-termer is also exceedingly comfortable. The Compass may be built on Fiat’s Small Wide 4X4 platform, but the driving position is anything but Latin. While the Italians prefer a driving position akin to a water skier, with arms outstretched and legs bent, the Jeep’s Yankee-spec seat is more Harley than Hayabusa; like sitting on a sofa, arms relaxed. And though the sumptuous white leather seats may be a touch impractical, I just love that they offer so much support to my thighs and shoulders. That feeling of being hewn from a single block of metal carries on inside as well. The dash feels tough enough to dance on, the doors shut with a solid ‘thunk’ and even the door locks ‘clack’ shut like pieces of military hardware. And then there are those incredibly thick A- and B-pillars that also deliver a massive sense of security; American cars have to pass strict rollover crash tests, where the roof and pillars have to take a lot of punishment. The all-metal cue-ball-topped gear knob too feels fantastic to hold, especially when it’s cooled by the air con vents.
Since we’ve got the car, I’ve done quite a lot of commuting in traffic; plenty of stop/start stop/start. And it’s here that the Jeep needs some getting used to. The clutch’s bite point is bit sharp, the action is snappy and once the 2.0 Multijet diesel is past 2,000rpm, throttle responses are so aggressive that driving it smoothly in traffic needs a bit of attention. The diesel engine is also quite loud under load. It has a nice growl at low and medium speeds, and there’s no strain or boom except near 5,000rpm, but this certainly isn’t one of those diesels that have passengers guessing what fuel the engine uses. What also bugs the hell out of me is that noisy fan or blower. I like to have the air con really blowing when I get into a hot car, and that means it feels like there’s a hurricane in the cabin for the first 10 minutes of my drive. Apart from being noisy, this also makes talking on the phone over the Bluetooth a real challenge. It’s a difficult choice – drop the fan speed and feel hot or shout over the din. Not nice.
Niggles apart, what we expect to discover over the coming months is just how much the Compass continues to impress us. Will small issues become big irritants? Will we discover new areas where the Jeep isn’t quite up to class standards? Or will the fundamental strengths of our Car of the Year carry it upwards and onwards? One thing’s for sure, we’ll put the Compass right under the microscope.
