Although the American brand Jeep Compass may not have achieved much success in terms of sales, celebrities are fond of it. In October this year, Jeep Compass sold only 854 units and finished eighth in sales of top-10 SUVs. Despite this, former Indian captain Kapil Dev is its new customer.
Jeep Compass has officially posted a photo of Kapil Dev on social media, in which he is seen taking delivery of Jeep Compass.
