Jeep Compass facelift spotted testing in India before launch

Jeep Compass has been in the Indian market since 2017 and nothing much has changed in terms of design since its launch. Competition in this segment has gone up tremendously over the last couple of years and Jeep is now working on a facelift of their popular SUV. The upcoming facelifted Jeep Compass was spotted testing here on Indian soil for the first time. The Indian version of Jeep facelifted Jeep Compass will be different from the version recently launched in the European market.

The latest spy pictures show the Jeep Compass facelift under heavy camouflage. None of the updates are clearly identifiable because of that. In comparison to the recently launched European version, the Indian version will have several cosmetic changes. The changes should include a redesigned bumper, new LED headlamps and tail lights and even a new color scheme. From the image it is clearly visible that it will get a new set of spoke alloy wheels and apart from that pretty much the whole car is under camouflage. It is quite possible that the front grille on this SUV will also be redesigned.

Changes and updates will not just be limited to the exterior of the SUV. Interiors will also see a fair bit of changes like a new colour theme for cabin and an updated touchscreen infotainment system with Jeep’s connected car feature. There is a possibility that the facelifted version might offer some of the missing features like a ventilated seat, digital instrument cluster and a branded audio system. Some of the existing features like sunroof, electrically adjustable driver seat will be carried forward.

The current version is available in both petrol and diesel engine options and both are BS6 compliant. The International variants are available with a new  1.3 litre turbocharged petrol engine and there is a possibility that the 1.4 litre petrol unit in the current version might be replaced with this new unit. The diesel engine will continue to be the same 2.0 litre turbo diesel unit. Both petrol and diesel engines would be available with manual and automatic gearbox options. Jeep is also working on a 7-seater version of Jeep Compass which will be known as Jeep Grand Compass. It will be based on the facelifted version that has been spotted testing.
