The Jeep Compass has been very quick in establishing a strong foothold in the premium SUV market of India. Many premium SUV buyers are opting for the Compass due to its world-class design and performance. Even some of our Bollywood stars seem to have a fondness for the baby-Grand Cherokee. Recently, we told you that Akshay Kumar has bought a Jeep Compass for his son. Today, it has come to light that Bollywood diva Jacqueline Fernandez has gifted her make-up man a Jeep Compass SUV on his birthday.
As you can see in the video above, the pretty lass can be seen excitedly greeting her make-up artist on her birthday and taking him to his new SUV. This is the second Compass SUV Jacqueline Fernandes has bought recently. Back in January this year, she bought a brand-new Compass for herself. The one she has bought recently goes to her make-up man. It may be noted that our actors spend a lot of time with their make-up artists, who work hard and long hours to ensure the stars look their best while performing. No surprise, then, that there develops a bond between the actors and the make-up artists.
It’s said that Jacqueline always makes it a point to ensure that her team gets whatever it wants. She even spends a lot of time with her team members and bonds really well with them. However, Jacqueline is said to have taken help from another Bollywood star to decide on a gift for her make-up man. Jacqueline took her ‘A Gentleman’ co-star Sidharth Malhotra’s opinion to decide on what car she should buy.
The Jeep Compass has a 5-seat cabin. It rivals the likes of Hyundai Creta and the recently updated Mahindra XUV500 in terms of pricing. The Compass has been selling really well in spite of being less powerful and having less number of seats than some of its rivals. The India-spec Compass is available with two engine options – a 1.4-Litre turbo petrol and 2.0-Litre turbo diesel. The petrol motor offers a maximum power of 160 Bhp along with a peak torque of 250 Nm. The diesel engine produces a maximum power of 170 Bhp and a peak torque of 350 Nm. The petrol engine offers two transmission options – 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The diesel engine is available with a 6-speed manual transmission only.
