- Jeep Compass Facelift

How do you like the Compass facelift?

Besides boasting tweaked exteriors, the compact SUV also packs an all-new interior backed by an enhanced list of features.

Earlier this month, Jeep India took the wraps off the thoroughly refreshed Compass. Alongside, it started accepting bookings. Now, we have a price list that starts at Rs 16.99 lakh. The SUV features a tweaked exterior design and an all-new interior backed by an enhanced list of creature comforts. The trim tree starts at Sport, covers Longitude, Limited and tops out with the Model S (new derivative). Here's the complete price list:

Changes on the outside aren’t entirely evident to an untrained set of eyes. But they are there. Jeep has given the Compass redesigned bumpers, reprofiled LED-powered headlamps and taillamps, new alloy wheels and a slimmer but glitterier grille. Indoors, the refreshed Compass is a far cry from where it was in pre-facelift form. The dashboard is all-new, and it incorporates a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, sleeker AC vents and revised HVAC control buttons and knobs. Even the multifunction steering is brand-new. Jeep has also devised a special edition Compass - the 80th Anniversary Edition.

As mentioned above, Jeep has packed the Compass facelift with new features. The list includes a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, ventilated front seats, dual-pane panoramic sunroof, wireless mobile charger, powered front seats with memory function for the driver, 360-degree camera, dual-zone climate control and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SUV also offers a powered tailgate, a 9-speaker Alpine sound system, auto headlamps and wipers, six airbags, Hill-Hold and Hill-Descent Control, traction control and electronic stability control.

Under the bonnet, you can have a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine or a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel. The former makes do with 158bhp/250Nm, whereas the latter put out 168bhp/350Nm. Both powerplants come coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission by default. If you want the convenience of an automatic gearbox, Jeep offers a 7-speed DCT and a 9-speed automatic with the petrol and diesel motors, respectively. As before, the option of the 4x4 system & Selec-Terrain is reserved only for the larger engine.

The refreshed Compass is available in seven shades of paint – Exotic Red, Magnesio Grey, Minimal Grey, Bright White, Brilliant Black, Galaxy Blue and Techno Green. As for the standard warranty, that's 3 years/1,00,000km. If you want a test drive then you'll have to wait until February 2, 2021. That's also the date when Jeep starts deliveries of pre-booked units.

In India, the Jeep Compass continues to fend-off competition from the MG Hector and Tata Harrier at one end, and the Hyundai Tucscon, Skoda Karoq and Volkswagen T-Roc at the other.

  • I like the changes, although that rear corner sight line looks to be as blind as in the Mazda3 hatch.

    • Yeah, I checked it out at the Houston Auto Show last year. I love it but it's not easy to see out of when looking out the back. That Jeep looks to have a similar problem. Thankfully, there are mirrors and backup cameras to overcome the blinds...

  • The updated interior is a massive setup which is something we don't usually see in facelifts. So that's good.

    Though I feel I now look a lot like the Harrier's dashboard, only with slimmer AC vents and probably better quality materials.
