The Euro-Spec Jeep Compass has secured a commendable 5 Star rating in the Euro NCAP Crash Test. The Euro Spec Variant comes with 8 airbags whereas we only get 6 airbags on the top-spec variant. Also, the car tested is a left-hand drive variant whereas we have a right hand drive setup. Watch the actual crash video footage below for more details!
However, even the Indian variant has a similar body structure and crumple zones. It even gets the ISOFIX seats safety feature for tucking in your little ones. We should expect result for the Indian variants as well. The Jeep Compass scored a 90 per cent score for Adult occupant safety whereas child occupant safety was given an 83 per cent score. As one can make out from the footage, even the rear passengers look pretty safe in the crash scenario and a 90 percent adult occupant safety safety is no small feat. This makes the already heavy-selling Compass an even more exciting proposition as not even it has been priced competitively but is pretty strong on safety as well!
We are left pretty impressed by the results of this crash test and we hope that all Indian manufacturers take a book or two out of Jeep’s booklet. Stay tuned to Exhibit Auto for more such news and updates from the Indian Automotive industry!
