Jeep has unveiled the Compass Facelift SUV in the Indian market. The new Jeep Compass Facelift SUV was first showcased at the 2020 Guangzhou International Motor Show.
The company is expected to launch the new Compass in the coming weeks in India. The new Jeep Compass Facelift SUV receives a number of subtle yet significant updates over the outgoing model, both to its exterior and interiors. At the front, the new Compass Facelift comes with a slightly reworked set of front LED headlamp units with DRLs.
The front grille has also been worked on, but still, it carries forward the signature seven-vertical slats. The new Compass Facelift SUV also comes with reworked front bumpers with new housing for the fog lamps and a newly designed air intake at the centre.
The side and rear profiles almost remain identical. On the inside, is where the new Jeep Compass has most of the significant changes.
The new Facelift SUV comes with a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a more premium dashboard with soft-touch material all around, climate control, leather-wrapped steering with mounted controls, wireless charging, electric sunroof, digital instrument cluster and many others.
Mechanically, however, the new Jeep Compass Facelift SUV will remain unchanged. The 2021 Facelift SUV will carry forward the same set of petrol and diesel engine options from the current model. This includes a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit producing 163bhp of power and 250Nm of peak torque.
On the other hand, there is also a 2.0-litre diesel unit churning out 173bhp of power and 350Nm of peak torque. Both engines come mated to a standard six-speed manual.
The petrol gets an optional seven-speed DCT automatic while the diesel engine is mated to an optional nine-speed automatic transmission.
Safety features on the facelifted Jeep Compass include 6 airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, traction control, ESC, hill-start assist, hill-descent control auto headlamps and wipers and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
