Jeep Compass rolls out in India at prices starting from Rs.14.95 lakh
The most anticipated SUV of the year, Jeep Compass was officially launched in India on July 31st 2017. Being a locally assembled SUV from Jeep was one of the reasons that paved way for excitement towards this launch.

As a result, these vehicles did not fare well in the Indian market. This was when the company announced its decision to locally manufacture an SUV for retailing not just in India, but also exporting to all right hand drive markets. Now, the wait has come to an end and Jeep Compass rolls out with an affordable price tag with all components of a premium SUV.

Kolkatta: A city of dirty streets and bungalow type colonies. At the same time, a city of grand residential “palaces” and skyscrapers . City of yellow-painted Ambassador taxis. It was at the last stage of a drive from Kochi to Bhutan that we landed in Kolkatta. The route to Bhutan was from Kochi to Kolkatta-Siliguri-Jaigaon.
This time, the visit to Kolkatta was with a different purpose. The purpose was to test drive the small hatchback DATSUN Redi-GO. This is the vehicle segment that sells most in India. The land of Maruti Alto 800, Hyundai Eon and Reno Quid. Into this market enters DATSUN Redi-Go. The earlier models of DATSUN were GO and GO+. Lack of standard was the reason for their failure.

While driving Redi-GO, one felt that DATSUN had learned the lessons from these failures. Here follows a detailed Test Drive Report.
