Jeep Compass Facelift Set For 7th January 2021 Launch
The SUV will come with a very well chosen set of upgrades that will likely help its case in the Indian market.
Jeep India will launch the Compass facelift on 7th January 2021, just over a month after it got unveiled overseas.
Featuring cosmetic upgrades both inside and out and feature updates, the facelifted Compass has restyled headlights with DRLs, a grille that retains the 7 slats, but houses chrome inserts, and new fog light housing.
The restyled bumper houses the air dam, which is larger, while there is a new skid plate as well. Overall, the changes made to the front make the SUV look bolder and meaner.
New alloy wheels also come as part of the facelift, but the side and rear profile have not been worked upon. There is a Trailhawk variant with its own set of updates.
People will like the insides of the car much more, since the dashboard has been restyled, featuring brushed aluminium-esque trim, double-stitched leather inserts, new air con controls and AC vents, while the steering wheel is new too.
Taking centre stage however is a 10.1-inch floating touchscreen with FCA’s UConnect 5 infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa support and with the capability to receive over-the-air updates. Also, the driver’s cluster is fully digital as well.
The 2021 Jeep Compass facelift launch will see the SUV continue with the 1.4-litre turbo petrol (160 HP and 250 Nm) and 2.0-litre turbo diesel (170 HP and 350 Nm) engines.
Gearbox options would be a 6-speed manual for both engines, while a 7-speed DCT for petrol and 9-speed torque converter for diesel motors will also be offered.
Expect a slight bump in the asking price of the SUV that competes against the Hyundai Tucson, Skoda Karoq and the likes.
