Continued: Jeep Compass: 10 things you DON’T know about

Here are five more things that you should know about the Jeep Compass.

High-tech building process

Welding

Jeep uses some really high-tech equipment to ensure that the Compass reeks of high-quality. Jeep uses India’s first laser welding technology all over the vehicle, including the doors. The high-tech process ensures that the welding is more precise and stronger than conventional welding methods.

Laser welding also ensures that there is no residue left on the welded parts, giving the product a better finish. Volkswagen also uses the laser welding in India, but the German brand only uses laser welding to attach the roof of the vehicle to the body. Only high-end luxury vehicles get laser welding all over, like the Compass does.

No automatics
