Jeep India is expected to launch the Compass Facelift on the 23rd of January 2021. It is also being speculated that dealers in select cities have started accepting bookings for the new model. The Jeep Compass Facelift was recently unveiled at the 18th Guangzhou Auto Show in China. The four-wheeler has been spotted doing test runs on Indian roads on multiple occasions in the past. Furthermore, it will get subtle cosmetic tweaks to the interior and the exterior. While no changes have been made to the powertrain. Due to the design and feature upgrade, we can expect it to be slightly premium over the current model.
In terms of design, the updated Compass features a seven-slat chrome grille with honeycomb-like inserts. In addition, it gets upgraded headlamps with LED DRLs. Other design bits include a new bumper with a large air-dam, new fog-lamp housing, LED taillights, and a revised faux skid plate.
Talking about the interior of the upcoming Compass Facelift, it gets an all-new dashboard with double-stitched leather upholstery and brushed aluminum trim. Further, it will come equipped with a plethora of features. These will include a large floating 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, voice control, LED ambient lighting, a new 3-spoke steering wheel, a full-digital instrument console, and a panoramic sunroof.
Under the bonnet, the SUV will get the same powertrain options as the outgoing model. These include a 2.0-litre multi-jet diesel engine and a 1.4-litre multi-air petrol unit. In the current format, the diesel motor dishes out a maximum power output of 170 bhp and a peak torque of 350 Nm. While the petrol mill belts out 160 bhp power with 250 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual as standard, a 7-speed DCT for the petrol engine, and a 9-speed automatic for a diesel unit.
