2020 Jeep Compass Breaks Cover Overseas

Most of the changes are under the skin!

  • The refreshed Compass features new alloy wheels and paint options.
  • Inside, it comes with Jeep’s new Uconnect Services infotainment system.
  • It features a new 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine in two states of tune.
  • The SUV is expected to launch in India by early 2021.

The car you see here is the 2020 Jeep Compass and we bet you must be wondering what’s new here. Well, there’s more than what meets the eye as it packs a new turbo-petrol engine and more technology on board. 


At first glance, the 2020 Compass looks largely similar to the current model. That’s no bad thing as the Compass’ design doesn’t feel dated even today. However, to freshen things up, it comes with new alloy wheel designs and a revised palette.  


Hop inside the 2020 Compass and you’ll notice that nothing much has changed. The main highlight is Jeep’s new ‘Uconnect Services’ infotainment system which features connected car technology. You can operate certain features from your smartphone, watch app or even through a website. It also comes with online navigation with live traffic updates, emergency services in case of a crash as well as live status of various parameters. Apart from these, the Compass now features a powered front passenger seat, an Alpine audio system and ventilated front seats.  


Other features like a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Jeep’s Selec-Terrain AWD system have been retained. On the safety front, it comes with six airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, electronic stability control as well as collision warning and lane departure warning. 


Another major highlight of the 2020 Compass is the new 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine that’s offered in two states of tune: 130PS (6-speed MT) and 150PS (DCT). There’s even a new 6-speed DCT that features a Sport mode (finally!). Select variants also come with Jeep’s electrified plug-in hybrid 4Xe powertrain that takes the power rating up to 240PS. Jeep claims that the new Compass will offer a better driving experience too thanks to the retuned handling and suspension. 

Expect the India-spec facelifted Compass to continue with the 163PS 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine and 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine. Both engine options are BS6-compliant. That said, we aren’t ruling out the 1.3-litre turbo-petrol motor completely as it is set to replace the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine globally. 


The 2020 Jeep Compass is expected to reach India sooner than later as Jeep’s Ranjangaon facility is the one of the facilities that supply right hand drive Compass’ across the world. Expect it to be priced more than the current model which starts from Rs 16.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The facelifted Compass will lock horns with the Volkswagen T-ROC and Skoda Karoq.
