Jeep will be launching the Compass SUV facelift in the Indian market in just a few days from now, but it has not managed to run away from our spy cameras. Spotted out on the streets before the launch completely uncamouflaged, the new GREEN SUV is all set to arrive in your nearest Jeep showrooms. Jeep is expected to officially launch the 2021 Compass facelift on 7th January 2021; and deliveries will begin soon after.
Spotted on late night in South Mumbai, the facelift Jeep Compass will feature a new metallic green paint option. One can say that the paint option is similar to what we have seen on the Harrier Camo edition. Apart from the new colour, you can notice that the 2021 Compass facelift will feature new full LED headlamps, new fog lamps, new LED tail lamps, reprofiled bumpers, new dual tone alloy wheels, silver finished front skid plate and will carry forward the unique chrome garnish on the DLO section but running below the roof, shark fin antenna and roof rails.
On the inside, this is the closest look at the India-spec model. You can clearly see the new design steering wheel with a new Jeep logo, new floating UConnect 5 touchscreen infotainment, new air conditioning controls, new leather applique on the dashboard, tan leather seat upholstery, new AC vents, new design gear lever, large MID in between conventional speedometer dials, electrochromic rear view mirror, silver accents on the dashboard, etc.
Currently, the Jeep Compass in India is powered by a 2.0L, 4-cylinder, turbo diesel motor producing 173 HP of power and 350 Nm of torque. The SUV also gets a 1.4L turbo petrol motor which pumps 163 HP of power and 250 Nm of torque. The 2021 Compass facelift is expected to continue with the same engine and gearbox options which includes a 7-speed DCT for the petrol and a 9-speed torque converter unit for the diesel. Point to note, the Compass facelift on international soil has received new engines as well.
Jeep is also working on a 7-seater version of the Compass, which might not use the Compass brand name for differentiation. But that bigger model is still some time away from reaching Indian showrooms.
