New Jeep compass

FCA has officially unveiled the all-new, next-generation Jeep Compass - the crossover SUV that is here to replace both the previous Compass and Jeep Patriot models. The new car that looks more like a baby Grand Cherokee will feature as much as 17 different engine options for more than 100 countries across the globe, hinting at the company's plan to make a global premium compact SUV base for the brand.
Toyota Camry Hybrid vs Superb vs A3 vs CLA

The 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is an interestingly odd car in our car market. It is a petrol-electric hybrid - one of its kind in our market, and so there is no direct rival for this car. Yet, if we go by price, the Camry Hybrid costs around INR 32.24 Lakhs, and so the car positions itself against the likes of three popular diesel-powered executive sedans - Skoda Superb TDI L&K (INR 31.18 Lakhs), Audi A3 35 TDI (INR 35.65 Lakhs), and Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 CDI Sport (INR 34.90 Lakhs). We pit these cars against the Camry Hybrid only because of the idea that the latter may better these cars in fuel economy. It is cheaper in running costs than a regular petrol sedan in its segment, and so the car may win over these expensive diesel sedans as well. But the question is - does it?
