Let’s start with the design first, the seven-slot grille somehow has a floating feel when you look closely and it’s very distinct from the Meridian and the taillight from the rear does not connect giving it more premium appeal. It’s a classic hooligan dressed as a gentleman. Will come to that in a bit. The Square wheel arches trademark of Jeep now also has an orange reflectors on each side which is another distinct part. From the side straight shoulder lines and Cherokee badging on either side brings forward the American muscle character. We will only get the 5-seater version which means the boot is huge to pack in 3 bean bags and large size suitcases, may be a human being as well to go as far as the Himalayas. You can literally slide your mountain bike with straight handles which most cars in its segment can’t do it. The seating at the rear seat also has good leg room, shoulder and head room with large vertical windows and huge panoramic sunroof. It feels luxurious with the seating and the interior trim leather seats and cushioning is also spot on and the central arm rest when unfolded rests your hand rather on a higher pedestal giving you the mafia boss feel. There is also a long-range radar and comes with 20-inch dual tone alloy wheels, which gives it the butch stance. The Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof, LED Headlights, tail & fog Lamps add to the overall design aesthetics.
