2021 Jeep Compass Facelift Launched From Rs. 16.99 Lakh

2021 Jeep Compass facelift-9

2021 Jeep Compass gets a host of updates to the front fascia and the interior is thoroughly revamped; no powertrain changes made

FCA debuted the Jeep brand in India with its Wrangler and Grand Cherokee premium SUVs in 2016 but the real breakthrough came when made-in-India Compass was launched in July 2017. The Compass really set the tone in the premium SUV segment but its popularity faded away in recent times. With it being the sole volume seller for the brand, a mid-life update has been introduced in India today.

The 2021 Jeep Compass is priced between Rs. 16.99 lakh and Rs. 24.49 lakh (ex-showroom) (around Rs. 50,000 price increase across variants) and it features a host of changes inside and out in response to the growing competition. On the inside, the facelift has been given a thorough revision with redesigned headlamps having integrated LED Daytime Running Lights, revised front grille with seven vertical slats and honeycomb inserts.

It also gets a brand new bumper section with wider air inlet and restyled fog lamp housing enhancing the sporty vibe of the new model. While the overall sturdy pillars and roofline remain identical as the outgoing model, the American SUV manufacturer has given a set of new 18-inch alloy wheels while the rear gains only subtle changes retaining its robust character.
