2015 – JEEP COMPASS     

The Jeep® Compass was launched in Brazil in 2012 to represent the gateway to the brand that invented the 4 × 4 segment. And this year, Jeep’s most urban SUV won a fair bit of audacity. The main novelty is the alloy wheels, which were 17 inches, become the 18 “ring. In addition, they are now painted in black, the same color applied to the contours of the traditional seven front cracks. The headlights have a black mask, and the taillights have also been darkened. Inside, the Jeep Compass not only had the graphics of the instruments redesigned but received a silver plaque on the dashboard above the glove compartment, in which the Compass and Jeep inscriptions stand out. The piece nicely matches the interior styling, along with other chrome and silver trim details such as steering wheel rims, vents, top of the shift knob and door knobs. To increase the rolling comfort, which has always been a highlight of the model, was installed a windshield with acoustic insulation, an item uncommon in the category. Produced at the Belvidere plant in Illinois, the Compass has a harmonious design and modern mechanical set. The all-aluminum 2.0 16V engine features dual variable valve timing and is coupled to the CVT (continuously variable) automatic transmission, which can also simulate six gears. The suggested model price is R $ 89,900.

Safety above all

The extensive list of standard items is one of the great strengths of the Jeep Compass, which has no options, as usual on Chrysler Group models in Brazil. Just for safety, there are more than 30 devices, including electronic stability control, tire pressure monitoring and four air bags – two front and two curtain covers, covering both rows of seats.

Broad connectivity

As for the comfort features, the Jeep Compass does not let down. The audio system is equipped with a built-in CD changer for six CDs with MP3 / WMA and DVD compatibility, auxiliary and USB 2.0 inputs (including full control of devices such as iPod, iPad and iPhone), and Bluetooth Uconnect voice.

First class mechanics and chassis

The powertrain also excels in the Jeep Compass, delivering good gas-saving performance. All made of aluminum and with dual valve control variable on intake and exhaust, the engine is a four-cylinder 2-liter that yields 156 hp of power and 19.4 kgfm of torque. It works together with the CVT2 automatic transmission, continuously variable ratios and smooth running. Efficiency is reflected in low consumption. On an urban route, the Jeep Compass can do up to 9.8 km / l. In turn, the exchange stands out as a second generation of Chrysler CVT, calibrated to offer more pleasant responses and greater control. Compared to a traditional four-speed automatic, the fuel economy is up to 8%. Another advantage of the CVT2 is the restarts performed between 50 and 100 km / h. The transmission also has the AutoStick feature, which simulates six speeds, for manual exchanges. In normal use, CVT2 does not require fluid exchanges, reducing maintenance cost. The good drivability of the Jeep Compass’s mechanics is further enhanced by the four-wheel independent front-end McPherson strut and multi-link multilink rear. Coming from the 4 × 4 version, the suspension is enhanced, bringing Jeep’s seven-decade know-how to meet the demands of the different floors found in Brazil.  The strength of the chassis is completed by the monobloc body, with excellent torsional rigidity. Its main external dimensions are: 4,448 mm in length, 1,812 mm in width (without mirrors) and 1,718 mm in height (including roof racks).

Amazing content

The wheelbase of 2,635 mm translates into good interior space for all Jeep Compass occupants. Another highlight of the cabin is the practicality. The front passenger seat, for example, can be folded forward and the split rear seat 60/40 has a 12 ° reclining backrest. The Jeep Compass is offered with a comprehensive package of standard equipment, unusual in its class. Apart from the items already mentioned, there is alarm, automatic air-conditioning, active front head restraints, front sliding central armrest with object carrier, uphill exit assistant, traction control, cruise control, electronic correction rear-view mirrors, electric and heated rear view mirrors, height-adjustable headlamps, fog lamps and fog lamps, four-wheel disc brakes, portable and rechargeable LED flashlights, anchorage points for children’s chairs (Latch / Isofix), light-emitting cupholders, trailer bracket, electric door locking, fuel cap with speed sensor,

A Car Cover Can Save You A Lot of Time and Money!

I’m sure you have once been down to the marina that is nearest to you and seen all those small yachts and speedboats that have covers on them. Most of those toys cost more than the regular cars that the common folk use on a day to day basis, therefore the owners bother with the covers because it actually does the job to take great care of their boats and keep them in really good shape. People use these covers for their really expensive vehicles and also for their everyday cars that they use to drive to work and back, they trust them to protect those million dollar vehicles, as well as those vehicles that cost less. When you go to a store that sells luxury products, for example, a luxury pen, a piece of jewelry, or an expensive bottle of whiskey, if you do end up making a purchase, you will not leave the store with a plain white plastic bag, the type you get from your local grocery store, rather you will first get the luxury item wrapped up with nice paper, then placed in the center of a nice box that displays in an elegant way. Then maybe a ribbon will be wrapped around the box, and then finally placed in a luxurious bag. That’s the way you take care of something with value. If this care is kept up then your product will keep its dignity for its lifespan and that is what you want. So now when going through the process of buying a car, it’s a product that one spends a lot of time deliberating on which company suits you and then on to which model is right for your purposes, which color and so on. But then one part of the process that most people don’t remember is what I have that will preserve this product in accordance with the amount of care that such a valuable item deserves. You don’t need that box that ribbon and that bag, no you need something that is easy to get on and off and of course you want it to protect the vehicle- a car cover!

Car covers protect the vehicle from rain, sun, dirt, sand, grit etc. Did you know that grit and rainwater together can cause your car to rust and become not only unsightly but also unusable? Well, they can, and you have to do something to protect your car from these outside elements, and covering your car is a great way to do just that! Some people might say that it’s not worth the effort to cover and uncover your car the whole time, but remember that “Prevention is better than cure” it takes much less time to quickly apply and remove the cover than it does to scrub down the car every night, or on the weekends. It so simple! Imagine, you just arrived home from work a whole hour late due to sluggish traffic and all you can think of is a hot cocoa on the couch catching up on the latest news, you don’t want to be thinking about a long hard scrub at your car later that night, or on the weekend to make it look sparkling and clean. You want to have a quick, simple, smooth way to keep your car shining and a winter car cover protection is a way to do it.

You probably have heard the company Covercraft as they are well known worldwide for their expertise. They manufacture a wide range covers for vehicles, ensuring that everyone, in every climate and environment, is covered. Amongst others, the Noah cover is a popular choice, as it is for all weather conditions. Covercraft makes Noah using a unique three-layered material made of bi-component fibers. The core inner layers are made from a tough nylon combined together with polypropylene. The outer layer is made from polypropylene too, so, therefore, has the softness to it, but still shields and protects the car from all sorts of weather conditions and UV rays. Sandwiched between the two is a layer of microporous film, adding another form of protection. This film is a breathable material, so that air and condensation are allowed out, away from the car.

The technology of the material will prevent any rain, sleet, snow, or sun from reaching the car and harming it. These ‘wonderful’ elements of nature have adverse effects on both the exterior and interiors of vehicles. Noah car cover protects other hindrances such as dust, tree sap, and birds droppings from settling on to the vehicle. As Noah is made of three layers, it gives a cushioning effect to knocks, dents, and scratches, whether they arrive from the wind or people walking past. You will see that Noah is an extremely practical cover. It can be hand washed when dirty, so there is no need to take it to the cleaners. What’s more is that you don’t have to wait for it to be fully dry before folding up. Noah can be folded up whilst still damp, and will resist the growth of mildew and or mould. When folded, it is very compact and not space taking at all, giving you the opportunity to bring it with you in the trunk, wherever you’re going. In order to make putting on and taking off easier for you, both the front and rear ends are elasticated to give you more room, and flexibility.

Cover craft makes all their covers custom sized, and Noah is included… You select the type of cover, the make, year and model of your car, and the cover is tailor-made for you. You can choose the color and design, and even place a logo on the front! Noah will then be made to fit your car’s contours, taking in the mirror and aerial to consideration, and making the pocket for them. Having a custom cover, not only makes the car look more upper class and smart even whilst covered, but also provides a better form of protection, as there is no space for anything to sneak in. Perhaps you have just gotten the car of your dreams an Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bentley or even a Porsche and you are very protective of it. Understandable, as this is your pride and joy and you don’t want anything to happen to it. What options do you have? Well, the first thing that comes to mind is a protective car cover.

For starters, it is more commutable than a garage as you can stick it in the boot and take it from location to location. A quality car cover for your new Aston Martin should be a well-considered purchase. There is no benefit in buying a cheap and cheerful car cover if you want to protect you £90,000 new toy. The more expensive car covers do provide you with a much better level of protection against elements such as rain and sunlight. The minimum that you want for a car cover is for it to be waterproof and is measured and designed to that individual make and model car, rather than a generic ‘one size fits all’ solution that will provide very little protection and will be flapping about in the wind. You need to decide when the cover is going to be used, to enable you to buy the right one. Do you need a cover that will protect you from indoor and outdoor conditions? If so it will be worth getting something with a strong water repellent membrane and ideally a protective layer. Something else will be required for long-term outdoor storage. Just protecting the car from rain will not be enough as you will also need to consider protecting the paint on the bodywork. Lightweight car covers will allow the car to breathe and yet still provide a good level of protection from the suns harmful rays. Some car covers can be made to a choice of colors and in some cases completely made to the requirements of your wishes. It will be worthwhile asking for advice from a professional as they will know what is best to consider depending on what you have planned for the car in terms of location.

How to Choose: When choosing to purchase a car cover there is many different options to select. Car covers are used mainly for vehicles that will be parked for an extended period of time such as vacation, or the auto is no longer working. While the automobile will be parked in one spot for a long time, in time it will get dirty and a vehicle cover will protect it from weather damage, bird droppings, trees and leaves getting caught in the windshield, etc. Automobile covers are very affordable and choosing one should be based on the purpose. The first thing to do is to decide where it will be used. If it’s being used outside, a more durable cover will be required to provide the most protection. What to Choose: Choosing an auto cover to be used indoors, the material should be flannel. This is because it is more durable, yet it will protect against nicks and or dents while it is housed indoors, such as in a garage or under a carport. Usually the owner uses these cover types to cover up and protect their antique, brand new, or show vehicles. It is easier to maintain when the vehicles are indoors as there isn’t as many elements to affect the cover or the auto. For cars that will be outside and covered, a custom cover may be needed. Yet there are many on the market that can be purchased for an affordable amount. Automobile covers made from polyester can protect from many other things. Be mindful that a vehicle that will be outdoors should have a cover to protect against UV rays from the sun, not to mention the dew in the mornings. Or other possible weather-related occurrences. Waterproof vehicle covers are also important for cars that will be outside and when buying automobile covers, acrylic ones should be an option.

Why Buy a Car Cover: Although not extremely popular with everyday vehicles, one should buy an automotive cover basically to protect the paint surface. Usually when someone sees an auto that’s covered they think it is an vehicle that isn’t in working condition. This is also a way to not draw attention to your car. Vehicle covers protect from the sun, wind, water, and from scratches. Cars have become a common means of personal transport nowadays. Even middle-class families are buying this vehicle to engage in a luxurious life. After buying such a vehicle it becomes to protect it from theft and adverse effects of sunlight, dust, and rains. A four-wheeler should be guarded and protected in such a way that no time and effort is consumed in it. Car covers are the most important external accessories used for protection of cars. These covers act as the shield to protect them from dust, moisture, heat, and attempts of theft. It is essential to have this accessory for providing protection. All covers used for guarding four-wheelers should be strong. They should be durable enough and should be made of good quality material. Such accessories are able to protect vehicles for a long time.
