Jeep Compass Facelift Interior and Exterior Teased Ahead official Unvil

Jeep Compass Facelift will be Launched in India on 2021.

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.

Exterior:

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.

Interior:

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.

Engines:

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.

    Honda has launched the new City hatchback which will go on sale in Thailand first. It is essentially a shorter, hatchback version of the existing 5th Gen Honda City Sedan which was recently launched in India.

    Design:

    Honda City Hatchback Exterior

    The new Honda City hatchback looks almost same as the Sedan, till the C-pillar. However, instead of an elongated trunk, the car gets a hatch beyond that. The rear too resembles the Sedan when it comes to the wide, horizontally placed tail-lights and the number plate housing. However, the hatchback gets a shorter overhang and a

    more rounded appearance. The rear bumper too is sporty with vertically placed faux air vents and a contrast black rear faux diffuser.

    The new Honda City hatchback RS Turbo gets more sporty bits like a blacked-out grille and dark-chrome finish for the 16-inch alloy wheels, similar to the City Sedan RS Turbo version sold in Thailand.

    The new Honda City hatchback is 4,349mm long, 1,748mm wide and 1,488mm tall and has a 2,589mm long wheelbase. It is 200mm shorter than the Thailand-spec City sedan but is 314mm longer, 53mm wider and has a 59mm longer wheelbase than the Honda Jazz.

    Interior:

    On the inside too, the City hatchback is exactly the same as the sedan without any significant changes. However unlike the Sedan, the hatchback gets Honda’s innovative rear seats that can split 60:40, fold down to increase boot space, fold up to increase vertical space and sit flush with the front seats to create a bed.

    Powertrain:

    The City hatchback will be currently available with only a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol engine that produces 122hp through a CVT gearbox. More powertrain options will be offered based on the different markets.

     Launch markets:

    The new City hatchback will be introduced in many markets like South America and in countries like Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia where it will also replace the third-gen Jazz. However, the fourth-gen Jazz has already been launched in markets like Japan, Europe and even North America where the City hatchback is not expected to be launched.

    In India however, Honda has just introduced a facelift version of the 3rd Gen Jazz with more features. This Jazz facelift will not be replaced by any new model anytime soon.

    Stay tuned for further updates.
