Jeep has unveiled the facelifted version of its Compass SUV at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China.

The premium vehicle looks similar to the outgoing model but offers a revamped cabin with a host of tech features including a 10.25-inch LCD instrument panel. It draws power from a 1.3-liter turbo-petrol engine that comes mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox.

Here's our roundup.

Exteriors: Jeep Compass (facelift): At a glance

The Jeep Compass (facelift) features a chrome-finished front grille, a revised bumper with integrated air dams, and a silver skid plate. It also has sleek headlights with integrated LED DRLs.

The car is flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, squared-off wheel arches with plastic cladding, and designer alloy wheels. A window wiper and wrap-around tail lamps are present on the rear.

Interiors: How does the cabin look like?

The Jeep Compass (facelift) gets a dual-tone 5-seater cabin with leather seats, auto climate control, a wireless smartphone charger, and a 3-spoke leather-wrapped multifunctional steering wheel.

The SUV houses a 10.25-inch digital instrument panel and a 'floating' touchscreen infotainment console with support for voice control, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

All the standard safety features including multiple airbags and parking cameras are also present.

Engine: Power and performance

The Jeep Compass (facelift) is powered by a 1.3-liter turbo-petrol engine that comes mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox.

In India, however, the facelifted model should come with a 1.4-liter petrol mill that makes 160hp/250Nm and a 2.0-liter diesel motor that generates 171hp/350Nm.

Transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed manual, a 7-speed DCT, and a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

Fact: What about the pricing?

The facelifted Jeep Compass carries a starting price-tag of $23,916 (approximately Rs. 17.71 lakh) in the US. The SUV will make its way to India in 2021 and is expected to carry some premium over the current-generation model, which starts at Rs. 16.49 lakh.
