Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have announced that the Jeep Compass has sold 10,000 units since its launch about 4 months ago. This is by any means a huge number for a car maker that had little to no presence in the Indian market before. The Compass has already done the trick for Jeep and keeps ringing in the cash register for the company. However, today we at Chandigarh Metro are about to discuss a few things that one usually takes for granted.
Jeep Compass Looks
The design engineers over at Jeep have designed the car to appeal to the true SUV enthusiast with a rather boxy design as compared to other cars in the competition. However, that did not stop them from hiding a few easter eggs in the design of the Jeep Compass like the lizard on the A-Pillar, and the little dragon in the rear windshield.
Jeep Compass Interiors
The Compass has been designed with keeping the Indian customer in mind and therefore Jeep has made a few changes to cater to the huge audience. The seat now comes with better thigh support and there are more cubby holes for storage spaces inside the Compass. But in all honesty, not all of them seem practical for use though.

Jeep Compass Suspension
The suspension comes with something called the FCD technology Frequency Sensitive Dampers which consists of a valve that controls the flow of a fluid in the shockers. This translates to the Jeep Compass being exceptionally well on Indian roads ironing all the bumps.
Jeep Compass Cornering
The one fundamental drawback with SUVs is that you cannot be crazy with them on the drive due to their higher centre of gravity which translates to a lot of body roll. This car however, does a commendable job on the corners maintaining the confidence of the driver.
