Jeep India today launched the Facelifted version of the Jeep Compass, which is a hot seller for the company. With the Covid-19 scenario in place, the event was hosted virtually. Jeep’s most affordable SUV  finally got a much-needed update today and hence, this launch was a highly awaited one.

“The past three years have been a process of great listening and learning from the customers,” said Partha Dutta, during the launch event.

In terms of the design, the 2021 Jeep Compass facelift features revised headlamps with new reflectors and LED daytime running lights. This gives the car a very brawny and aggressive look. The DRLs provide a sense of presence, especially in dimly-lit conditions. Both bumpers, front and rear have been revised as well and the car also gets a wider honeycomb mesh air dam upfront giving it an even more butcher feel.

In terms of some major features, the new Jeep Compass facelift gets over 50 safety and security features, which include 6 airbags, ESP, Electronic Roll Mitigation, Hill hold and Hill descent control, amongst other such useful tools. There is also a 360-degree Camera System that is quite useful in tight situations.

The dashboard layout has been redesigned to offer a wider appearance, which is a good thing.  There’s also the new floating touchscreen infotainment system that’s considerably larger now. The switches in the dash are brand new and look rather premium. Storage space too has been increased and wireless charging is also supported.

The new Jeep Compass gets a 10.25-inch digital instrument console with the new UConnect 5 user-interface that brings better hardware and software on the car. Some of the major features that it has includes support for OTA updates, Android OS, customisation of up to 5 pages and 5 times better speed in comparison to the older variant.
The new instrument console on the 2021 Jeep Compass facelift gets a  3D look that offers a host of information and is full of information. The car also comes with connected car features including a voice assistant and a dedicated smartphone application.
 Both the BS6 compliant powertrains will be 1.4-litre Multi-air petrol and 2.0-litre Multi-jet diesel unit, which means the engines are same and there are no mechanical changes.
 The new Jeep Compass will continue to rival the likes of the Volkswagen T-Roc, Skoda Karoq, 2020 Tata Harrier and the MG Hector Facelift that’s going on sale today.
