Jeep Compass Facelift: A Stylish Update with Enhanced Features

Jeep India has recently launched the facelift version of the popular Compass SUV in the country, with prices ranging from ₹20.49 lakh to ₹23.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The refreshed Compass retains its overall silhouette but comes with subtle exterior changes to enhance its style quotient.

At the front, the Jeep Compass facelift boasts updated LED headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights, complementing the revised front grille adorned with the signature Jeep seven-slat styling element. The front bumper now features an updated black honeycomb mesh grille, further adding to the SUV’s revamped appearance.

In terms of wheels, the new Compass facelift comes equipped with stylish alloy wheels that not only enhance its overall look but also give it a more masculine appeal. Moving to the rear, the facelift version maintains the same taillight design and body-colored bumper as its predecessor, along with the distinctive dual-tone theme featuring a black roof.

Inside the cabin, the Jeep Compass facelift receives an array of updates. The first noticeable change is the introduction of a large 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which adds a touch of modernity to the SUV. Additionally, the dual-tone dashboard and all-black interior theme contribute to a more premium ambiance.

Other interior updates include a new steering wheel, a fully digital 10.25-inch instrument cluster, and updated seats and upholstery. The infotainment system is powered by the automaker’s U-Connect 5 software, offering seamless connectivity.

One major update for the facelift version is the availability of a two-wheel-drive (2WD) drivetrain with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. This combination is available in the Red Black edition of the Compass facelift and significantly enhances the SUV’s appeal.

Powering the Jeep Compass facelift is a 2.0-liter diesel engine, which enables the SUV to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in just 9.8 seconds. It is worth noting that Jeep has decided not to offer a petrol engine option for the Compass in India. However, the introduction of the 2WD AT combination is a significant mechanical update and will be positioned below the 4X4 AT variants.

In summary, the Jeep Compass facelift presents a stylish update with a range of cosmetic changes and enhanced features. With its refreshed exterior design, updated interior, and the availability of a 2WD drivetrain with a nine-speed automatic gearbox, the facelift version offers an improved driving experience for SUV enthusiasts.
