The 2021 Jeep Compass was earlier unveiled internationally
The Jeep Compass is an SUV that needs no preface in the Indian context. It had created much storm in our market upon its launch a couple of years back. This American SUV is set to get a major facelift in the country. The 2021 Jeep Compass facelift had earlier been unveiled internationally and has now been confirmed to hit our shores on Jan 7, 2021. The new Compass will be offered in an exciting new shade of Green, to further up its appeal.
The Compass follows a new design theme this time around. SUV gets a restyled headlamps with integrated DRLs, fresh-looking seven-slat grille with honeycomb inserts, an all-new front bumper with a faux skid plate, and a larger air dam with new fog lamp enclosures. Compass now sits on a new set of alloy wheels. Apart from these updates, the car remains the same from the sides and rear.
However, the interiors have evolved very well with the array of features. A new 10.1-inch floating infotainment sits atop the restyled dashboard. The Air-Con vents and HVAC controls are very well positioned below that. The new touchscreen runs on FCA’s UConnect 5 infotainment system and supports wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The double-stitched leather inserts and brushed Aluminium-like trims on the dashboard will enhance the premium feel of the interior. Additionally, there is a new three-spoke steering wheel and fully-digital instrumentation.
Compass will be powered by the same 2.0L diesel putting out 173hp and 350Nm of torque or the 1.4L turbo-petrol churning out 163hp and 250 Nm of torque just like the outgoing model. Both engines come mated to a 6-speed manual as standard meanwhile the petrol variant gets an option of 7-speed dual-clutch automatic box and the diesel gets a 9-speed torque converter as an option. The Compass will lock horns with Hyundai Tucson and Skoda Karoq once launched.
