Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Test Drive Review

 SUVs like the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon have a massive craze in the Indian market. Nothing comes close to SUVs if one expects a commanding drive position from a vehicle. In this post, you will get a detailed first-drive review of the SUV related to every aspect of the car.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon: The Macho SUV everyone needs

Jeep wrangler rubicon

The Rubicon is not just about the looks but also the capabilities one can extract from the SUV. Jeep designed this vehicle for those who desire a macho-looking SUV with a massive road presence. Look at the car’s design, and you will not regret purchasing this SUV. Those who want to feel like the King of the Road will love the Jeep Wrangler for its macho looks. This SUV has impressive dimensions that make everyone fall in love with the SUV.

What’s on the Inside?

Jeep only offers hardtop versions for the Indian market as they will sell in massive numbers over convertible versions. Now, forget about the brand value and feel the SUV for the driving position. This position suits those who expect a commanding drive position and want to feel like elites on the road. That’s possible because of the higher ground clearance, making it commanding but not a comfy SUV. There is more priority towards offroading so definitely, it’s much more suitable for the young generation of people who are looking for a lifestyle vehicle. Features on the car are just decent as it gets touchscreen infotainment with Alpine speakers for mesmerizing sound quality. One will also appreciate its powerful air conditioning as that’s something that helps in serving the scorching heat in the summer season. I tested the front parking sensors that improved the practicality factor of the Wrangler.

Overall, the features are decent but more features would still be required to justify the premium pricing of the Wrangler.

The Driving Dynamics of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

The driving experience is superb because the 2-liter petrol engine brings a smile to the driver’s face. Jeep should improve the 8-speed automatic gearbox that’s slow with the downshifts but feels faster on the upshifts. There is no issue with the steering wheel as it offers some confidence that one would expect during real-world driving conditions. The braking response is stellar, as one can expect the feedback required during regular driving conditions. Furthermore, this vehicle has a claimed fuel efficiency of 7 kmpl, which makes it suitable only for weekend drives. 

Final Conclusion

I would recommend the Wrangler as a lifestyle vehicle because of its driving experience and the macho road presence. My recommendation to Jeep is to introduce new features in the Wrangler to justify the premium price tag of the vehicle. Anyone who needs a practical car rather than a lifestyle vehicle for weekend trips should avoid the Wrangler as it cannot offer the comfort levels of a sedan.
