Jeep India unveiled the Compass Facelift in the country last week. Now the automaker is all set to launch the updated SUV on February 4, 2021. As for the price, we can expect it to start from Rs 16 lakhs (ex-showroom). The SUV will be sold in four variants in India - Sport, Longitude Option, Limited Option, and a new range-topping S variant.
