The Jeep Compass has been making waves since its launch last month, with sales making a considerable dent in terms of sales as well. The made in India Jeep has been given petrol and diesel engines and is the most inexpensive offering from Jeep on sale right now in India. With the focus in India shifting towards safety especially in cars with a price tag of 10 lakhs and up, we have been eagerly awaiting its crash test results. Luckily for us, safety watchdog Euro NCAP has crash tested the left-hand drive variant of the Compass, that shares its chassis with the Indian car, has scored a phenomenal 5-star safety rating for the top of the line variant that was tested. The break down of the Jeep Compass’s safety score sees it scoring 90% in Adult occupant safety, whereas, child occupants get as little as 83%. The 4x4 compass also scored a decent 64% in terms of pedestrian safety.

In the sub-continent, the Compass competes with Mahindra’s XUV500 that scored 4-stars in the Australian NCAP. However, it is important to understand that these metrics vary from division to division based on the rigidity of the system. In terms of safety, the  Jeep Compass comes with up-to 6 airbags and is equipped with advanced chassis controls, four channel anti-lock brakes, traction control, ESC, Panic brake assist, hydraulic boost failure compensation and electronic roll mitigation.
