The Meridian is essentially a Compass derivative, but looks nothing like it. Sure, traditional design touches like the 7-slat grille and slim headlamps have been retained. But, the upright stance, sporty-looking 18-inch alloys, and the squared wheel arches give it proper SUV vibes. A leaf has been taken out of the Grand Cherokee’s book with the design of the connected LED tail lamps.

Inside, the dashboard design has been lifted off from the Compass, which ain’t a bad thing, as quality and the overall ambience is good. It also comes finished in a black/brown colour scheme to distance itself from the smaller SUV. Highlight, though, is the third row of seats which are best suited for kids or short adults for small journeys. You don’t have the option to slide the second row.
