Reliability same as Fiat lo. Hint: same platform, engine and gb as the fiat 500. I think it's also built along side with the 500 in Italy for Europe. I dunno about Singapore coz there are also plants in India and China.

 

Since when do Jeep do small cars small engines? What you see in their iconic wrangler and cherokee are big capacity V6 and V8 engine options. So majority of the car is wholely sourced from fiat. Their company called FCA.

Most will get the more popular Wrangler. Maybe introduction with the more tax friendly 2.0L turbo the Wrangler will sell easier here.

Beauty is very subjective I feel. Personally I find the look unconventional but interesting, not ugly at all imo.

This is meant to be a fun car that youngsters use it as daily driving.

Oh well.. Jeeps aint focusing making very nice looking cars. They are catered for more rugged lifestyles.

Its probably around the same category as MINIs. 

But well, if i were to choose, I will get a MINI.

 

IMO, its a little overpriced for what it is, its really buying the brand "JEEP" name.

It is a good little car. Test drove it before its launch. The manual version is fun. Surprisingly spacious inside for such a compact car.

No comments on the auto transmission as i didn't try that out.. Just make sure it is not the dry clutch auto. Why don't you give them a call to arrange for test drive?

Thanks Bro - It will be much better to listen from a current owner if possible.

Had one for 6 months - loving it so far.

 

Yes, its a dual dry clutch system. Not sure about the technicalities, but the gear shifts (6 speed) are fairly smooth. Only thing is I have to engage the electronic parking gear when moving off from slopes, a bit like a manual. Pick up is not fabulous, but good enough, especially when the turbo kicks in,

 

Certainly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I don't buy a car because others think it is gorgeous, but I think is hideous, or I don't don't buy a car because others think it is ugly, but I think it is beautiful. I frankly fell in love with the old school yet modern looks!

 

Agree that it is a little over-priced, but still the most affordable Jeep in Singapore at the moment. Not for serious off-roading aficionados, but works for me in Singapore city-driving. The ride is smooth like a car, rather than an off-roader.

 

Petrol consumption is good too. I'm doing 8.5 l/100 km.

 

Hope this helps.

Not fantastic. If you can, just sell it off yourself.

I just didn't want the hassle of doing that.
