The Jeep Compass facelift for India will be revealed on January 7, 2021. This comes only a few months after the Compass facelift’s international debut, which brought refreshed interiors and exteriors.
The Jeep Compass has been regarded as one of the most capable SUVs in its class, however, the car hasn’t really been able to grasp a strong foothold in the Indian market. The Compass was first launched in the country back in 2017, which means that it has completed over three years here, and considering the tougher competition in the segment, is now due for a mid-life makeover.
While the Compass facelift comes with new engines in international markets, the model in India will carry forward its current powertrains. That means it will come with the same 2.0-litre diesel engine making 173hp and 350Nm of torque, along with the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 163hp and 250Nm of torque, as the outgoing model.
Once launched in India, the Jeep Compass facelift will face competition from the likes of the Hyundai Tucson and the Skoda Karoq.
