Although at first glance it may look like the old model, the length and height of the Compass facelift have been increased to 29mm and 17mm individually. However, the wheelbase remains the same at 2636mm.
The highlight of the new facelift version is the seven-box front grille finished in chrome. Headlamps integrated with LED DRLs are slim and wide. The front bumper is adorned with redesigned air inlets and a silver skid plate at the bottom.
Looking further into the sides you can see a new design for the alloy wheels on the sides and the prominent square wheel arches with plastic cladding along the length.
The interior of the SUV gets a total upgrade to the Compass Facelift with a dual-tone interior theme, new three-spoke leather upholstered multi-function steering wheel, and an all-digital 10.25-inch LCD instrument panel.
A free-standing touchscreen infotainment system with voice control, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity is now housed in the center sole. Other key features of the cabin are the new front seats and support for wireless smartphone charging.
The Jeep Compass facelift does not receive any mechanical upgrades. In addition, the car is powered by a 1.3-liter turbo petrol engine. It is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
In India, however, the Facelift model will be available with 1.4-liter multi-air petrol and a 2.0-liter multi-jet diesel engine. A six-speed manual gearbox will be offered as standard.
It will be available in petrol with a seven-speed DCT gearbox and a nine-speed torque converter automatic diesel version in all-wheel-drive configuration.
According to company sources, the 1.3-liter turbo petrol engine will also hit the Indian market, which is a testament to the growing demand for turbo petrol engines.
