India-made Jeep Compass scores 5-stars in ANCAP

India-made Jeep Compass has added a new feather on its cap, as it earned a complete five-star rating in the crash test conducted by the Australian New Car Assessment Programme, also known as the ANCAP. The safety rating applies to all variants which are built from September 2017. The company’s Indian production facility manufactures the Compass SUV solely for the right-hand-drive markets including Australia and New Zealand.

Jeep Compass, which was tested by ANCAP, comes loaded with safety equipment such as nine airbags, speed-limiter and more as standard. Features like autonomous emergency braking and lane support system is variant specific. The front impact test results revealed good protection levels for front passenger’s head and knee, while the chest and lower legs protection has been rated as just acceptable. The passenger compartment held its shape well in the frontal offset test. Moreover, during side-impact and whiplash test, the driver's head, upper body and the neck all had good protection. The results also revealed that all the doors remained shut during the crash while the pedal and steering wheel displacements were well controlled.

Although the Australian spec model gets the same structural dimensions, under the hood, the SUV is powered by a 2.4-litre petrol engine. Back in September 2017, the left-hand drive version of the Jeep Compass had also scored a five-star rating at the Euro NCAP.
