    Jeep Compass Facelift Interior and Exterior teased ahead of official unveil on Guangzhou International Motor Show 2020 at China.

    The first images of the 2021 premium compact SUV Jeep Compass facelift have been leaked online a few weeks ago. The leaked images of the new model are from China. The facelifted model is expected to make its world premiere later this month in that country.


    At first glance, the headlamps get minor design tweaks, with a slightly more angular treatment. The headlamp inserts too are new and the Headlamps themselves are expected to be

    full-LED units on most variants.

    The seven-slat grille design gets more prominent honeycomb-like inserts. The front bumper is all-new with a curvy contrast-black insert placed above the front air-dam connecting both fog lamp units. The new bumper does not feature separate LED daytime running lamps, which means they will now be integrated into the headlight units.

    The new Compass Trailhawk will also come with a unique front bumper design along with an all-black grille, dual-tone hood and the trademark red hooks upfront. The refreshed Compass Trailhawk also gets new-look 18” alloy wheels.

    At the rear though, the changes are minimal with the mildly re-profiled tail-lamps and the new inserts.


    The new Jeep Compass facelift is expected to receive a much-larger 10.1-inch touchscreen U-Connect5 infotainment system with few connected care facilities as well.

    It is also likely that the top-spec variants will receive a fully digital instrument cluster as well. While the rest of the dashboard will have no design changes, the material quality is expected to be improved significantly.


    The new Jeep Compass will continue with the current set of engine and gearbox options. The 1.4L Multi-Air Petrol engine will be mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT whereas the 2.0L turbo-diesel will be mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

    The Jeep Compass is a rival for the likes of the Tata Harrier, Hyundai Tucson, MG Hector and Mahindra XUV500.

    Stay tuned for further updates on the new Jeep Compass facelift.
