Jetour Dashing Review — Feature-Loaded & Stylish Compact SUV

We recently reviewed the Jetour Dashing to find out if it does justice to the name. Find this Jetour Dashing for sale in the UAE on DubiCars by Alma Motors.

Exterior Design

The Jetour Dashing boasts a head-turning exterior. The grille stretches across the front of the car without a visible frame, creating a smooth, unified look. Colour-matched accents personalise the front fascia. Stylish 20-inch wheels and flush door handles highlight the sculpted sides.

The wraparound taillights are visible from the side, hinting at the unique split spoiler and sharp angles at the rear. The sloping roofline towards the rear gives the Dashing a sleeker profile. A diffuser at the rear completes the look. Interestingly, it does not use a rear lightbar.  

Other exterior features:

  • Stylish 20-inch alloy wheels
  • All-around body cladding
  • Flush door handles
  • Dual-tone exterior colours

Interior Design

The Dashing offers ample room on the inside for 5 people. The light leatherette upholstery, panoramic sunroof, and ambient lights add a touch of airiness to the cabin. 

A couple of trim pieces are finished in bronze along with some wood present on the dashboard, which adds to the premium feel of the cabin. The two-spoke steering wheel and the floating centre console are modern touches.

Driving Impressions

Engine & Gearbox

The 1.6L turbo-petrol engine produces impressive power and torque figures. This paired with a smooth and responsive 7-speed gearbox gives you an engaging driving experience. It might not be the quickest SUV, but it is certainly an exciting one considering the price bracket.

Suspension & Handling

The Dashing is lightweight, with a sportier suspension setup making it agile. The weight of the SUV is well-balanced even around the corners. As it is only a front-wheel drive SUV, we do not recommend this to be taken to the dunes.

Review Verdict

In the crowded compact SUV segment, the Jetour Dashing stands out with its feature-loaded cabin, exciting powertrain, and impressive looks. It is a well-rounded package for buyers looking for a modern and stylish SUV.
