Jeep is planning to launch the seven-seater version of the Compass in the second haft of 2021. Read for more details of this upcoming SUV.
It is no secret that Jeep is planning to introduce a three-row Jeep Compass for the Indian market. Before the arrival of the three-row version, the American carmaker also launches the facelifted Jeep Compass which is scheduled to hit the showrooms in a week’s time. On the other hand, the seven-seater Jeep Compass is expected to make it to the market in the second haft of 2021.
The seven seater version of Jeep Compass will be launched in the second haft of 2021
Ahead of the launch, the seven-seater version was spotted during the test for a couple of times aboard. The earlier report suggested that the new seven-seater was going to be called Grand Compass. However, as per a recent report, the upcoming seven-seater SUV will not carry forward the Compass nameplate but make its debut under a brand new identity. Even so, at its core, the upcoming SUV still shares essential components with its sibling.
It will be underpinned by the same monocoque chassis employed on the Jeep Compass. In order to accommodate the third row, the platform will be updated accordingly. Expect to see a growth in length and wheelbase.
In terms of styling, the seven-seater is likely to come with a slightly updated design which will distinguish it from the original version. According to the spy shots, the Jeep Compass seven-seater will come with a similar front end design with the outgoing Jeep Compass with some minor updates. On the inside profile, the Jeep Compass will get a longer rear overhang. As for the rear end, it is expected to get substantial styling updates.
On the feature front, Jeep Compass will be equipped with large touchscreen infotainment system with Uconnect connectivity system, panoramic sunroof, multi-functional steering wheels, cruise control, automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels, and more. Under the hood, it will bring forward the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine from the regular Jeep Compass. However, the engine will be updated to generate a higher state of tunes in order to propel a bigger and heavier model. It is continued to be mated to a six-speed manual and a 9-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The seven-seater Jeep Compass will rival against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Mahindra Alturas G4, MG Gloster and Isuzu MU-X.
