The American car manufacturer Jeep had already announced that they will officially launch the 2021 facelifted version of the Compass SUV on January 7, 2021. The official launch is just a week away, and the facelifted Compass has been spotted on our roads. The SUV has been tested with heavy camouflage several times, but this is the first time we see it undisguised. The spy image shows what the interior of the future Jeep Compass would look like.
Spy images were shared by Shifting-Gears.com. The next SUV was seen in a new metallic green color. It’s the same color I saw in the pictures that were distributed earlier by Jeep online. There are a few new things in the Jeep Compass 2021 that you would notice. Starting with the headlight, even though it has the same design as before, it now has a complete LED configuration with LED DRL. The pre-facelift version came with turn indicators on the bumper, but in this 2021 version, only the LED fog lamps can be seen here. It seems that DRLs are dual-function units that also act as a turn indicator.
Going down, notice the bumper that has also received a new design. now he looks much more muscular than before. There is a lip-like extension on the bottom of the bumper with a silver protection plate. The side profile of the SUV reveals the new set of alloy wheels. In addition, there is a chrome window that runs from a pillar to the back of the car. Apart from this, no major changes can be seen on the side profile. The rear section of the car has a chrome gasket under the rear window, and the LED position lamps look exactly like the older version.
Inside, there are some new things. The entire cabin has been renovated, and the Compass now receives a newly designed steering wheel. It still has control switches and the Jeep logo on it. Another update is the new touch screen infotainment screen, which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The dashboard now looks much more premium than before. It has brown leather inserts, with black and soft materials, to the touch. The button for the Start and Stop button is also seen in the images along with IRVM auto dimming.
The two-zone climate control switches and other controls have also been slightly revised to give a fresh look. There is also a redesigned speed lever and a MID. Like the dashboard, the seats also have a brown leather upholstery. The compass definitely looks a lot more inside. Jeep will offer the Compass SUV in both petrol and diesel engines.
The petrol version is available with a 1.4-liter turbo petrol engine that generates 163 ps and 250 Nm of torque. This engine is available with a manual option and 7-speed DCT gearbox. The diesel version uses a 2.0-liter turbo unit that generates a maximum torque of 173 Ps and 350 Nm. It is available with a manual automatic transmission and a 9-speed torque converter.
