Jeep Compass is the most successful Jeep cars in the India market. Launched in 2017, the Compass quickly became a strong competitor in the premium SUV segment. However, given that the SUV segment is getting more competitive with new models coming to light, this main volume seller of Jeep is seeing a decline in demand. In order to refresh the appeal of this model, Jeep introduced the mid-life facelift for the Jeep Compass yesterday.

The mid-life facelift Jeep Compass is available from Rs 16.99 lakh to Rs 24.49 lakh (ex-showroom), posing an increase of Rs 50,000 over the previous prices for all variants. The new facelift comprises of various interior and exterior updates.
Right from the front end, the new Jeep Compass has displayed comprehensive updates, including a refreshed front grille with honeycomb pattern, redesigned headlights with LED DRLs, revised bumper with wider air inlets, and updated foglight housing. These revisions have worked together to forge a fresh new look for the Jeep Compass.
Unlike the front face which experiences an extensive makeover, the side and rear profile of the Compass remain mostly identical to the those of the previous model. The only update found on the side is the new set of 18-inch wheels. The rear also comes with some insignificant changes.
On the inside, the Jeep Compass sees a host of revisions and additions, especially in terms of features and technologies. A bigger 10.1-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system, a full-digital 10.25-inch instrument cluster have entered the equipment list. Other highlight features of the Compass include a panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable driver seat, powered tailgate, latest UConnect with Amazon Alexa support, cruise control, two-zone automatic climate control, six airbags, Traction Control, around-view camera, ISOFIX mounts, HSA, HDC, and more.
Moreover, the cabin also gets some material enhancements including brushed aluminium and brown leather inserts on the dashboard. The top-spec models are set apart with the use of dual-tone leather seats while the lower variants only get all-black seat upholstery.
Under the hood, there are no mechanical updates for the transmission. It continues to be powered by either a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine (170 PS/350 Nm) or a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol unit (162 PS/250 Nm). A six-speed manual transmission is offered as standard for both engines. Each unit will get different automatic options: seven-speed DCT for the petrol version and 9-speed AT for diesel range. 4WD and multiple drive modes are also available for the top-spec diesel variants. It is expected that Jeep will soon roll off the Jeep Compass Trailhawk at a later stage.
