Here’s What Each Variant Of The 2021 Jeep Compass Has To Offer

It will be offered in five variants -- Sports, Longitude, Limited, Limited Option, and S


As we head closer to the Jeep Compass facelift’s January 27 launch date, more details keep surfacing on the updated SUV. This time, a snippet of what each variant will offer has been leaked, hinting at a raft of options. 

The leaked document reveals that the 2021 Compass will come in five variants -- Sports, Longitude, Limited, Limited Option, and S (the new range-topping variant). It will also be offered in six colour options, of which two are new additions. They are Techno Metallic Green (new), Galaxy Blue (new), Exotica Red, Minimal Grey, Bright White, and Magnesio Grey.  Here’s what you’ll get from each variant:


First up is Sports, the base variant in the Compass’ lineup. It will come equipped with features like a smaller 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, idle start-stop, dual airbags, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking camera, traction control, LED reflector headlamps, a 3.5-inch multi-information display, black fabric interiors, and an electronic parking brake (automatic variants only). 

Despite the base variant being reasonably equipped, it misses a larger infotainment system, 360-degree camera, a digital instrument cluster, bigger wheels, wireless charging, and more.


The Longitude variant isn’t exactly a massive step up from Sports. Agreed, it gets its preceding variant's features plus a push-button start/stop, roof rails, 6-speaker audio system, LED fog lamps, a larger 7-inch TFT driver’s display, and electronically foldable mirrors. However, it doesn't include a 360-degree camera, a digital instrument cluster, a bigger touchscreen, larger wheels, and wireless charging.


This variant is a welcome upgrade in terms of features. Additional equipment includes a 12-way electronically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, auto-hold (automatic variants only), dual-tone cabin, hill descent control (4x4 variants only), 18-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps, LED tail lights, and six airbags. 

Limited Option

This seems like a relatively minor upgrade over the top-spec variant. Additions include a dual-panoramic sunroof, the 10.1-inch UConnect infotainment system, and a powered tailgate. 



Essentially the new range topper of the Compass lineup, this fully loaded variant adds in a 360-degree camera, wireless charging a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, ventilated front seats, a 9-speaker Alpine audio system, ambient foot lighting, powered electric seats for co-passenger, black leather upholstery and LED projectors. 

Under the hood, the Jeep Compass will retain its 1.4-litre turbo-petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engine engine options with the former making 163PS/250Nm and the latter making 170PS/350Nm. Transmission options will include the option for a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (for the petrol engine) and a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic transmission (for the diesel motor). The diesel-powered Compass will continue to offer the option of an AWD system.

Expect the 2021 Jeep Compass to retail at a premium over its predecessor that is priced from Rs 16.49 lakh (ex-showroom) onwards. Rivals will include the  Hyundai Tucson, MG Hector, Volkswagen T-ROC and Tata Harrier
