Urfi Javed Buys Jeep Compass Car
As per the actress, it’s not a big deal to purchase a vehicle and she has certainly not shown much excitement about her new possession. She simply says that it was a necessity to have a vehicle and she purchased one. In the second clip that we have below, the actress can be seen posing in front of her shining blue Jeep Compass. Compass belongs to the premium mid-size SUV segment in our market and is almost a stand-alone product. That is because it is a 5-seater SUV with a 4×4 drive system and hardcore off-road equipment. But the price range that it is sold at is quite premium over the regular 5-seat mid-size SUVs. The direct competitor in that sense is something like a Citroen C5 Aircross, VW Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq.
