FCA India today unveiled the 2021 Jeep Compass. The new 2021 Jeep Compass will continue to be locally manufactured in India at FCA’s joint venture manufacturing facility in Ranjangaon, near Pune. Production of the New Jeep Compass has already begun and is ready for India market launch. Dispatches of the SUV to Jeep brand dealerships across the country will commence shortly. The New Compass will be available for customer test drives, nationwide, by end of January 2021.
On the exterior, the 2021 Jeep Compass continues to sport the Jeep brand styling elements including the seven-slot grille and the trapezoidal wheel arches. The headlights now come with reflectors as well as LED projectors, depending on the variant.
The interior design sports a mid bolster piece surrounded by metal brow. The sleek metal accent underneath the bolster makes the dashboard look more integrated. The New Compass has double the storage inside the passenger cabin and a wireless charging spot for a smart phone. The waterfall center console has been designed to make navigating it ergonomically smoother.
The mid bolster houses slender air vents, which are neatly tucked under the brow of the dashboard and are embellished with a brushed metal strip. The SelecTerrain selector is now a toggle in chrome. Control knobs for the air-con and the circular periphery of the engine stop-start button are detailed with intricate striped pattern ‘fluting’. Function switches are more ergonomically placed and modernized. The steering wheel has been redesigned and the Jeep brand badge now is placed in a horizontal strip surrounded by chrome. The all-new interiors in the 2021 Jeep Compass will be offered to customers in dual-tone and full black combinations in leather and fabric upholstery, depending on the selection of trim and variant.
The new generation 10.1-inch high-definition display UConnect-5 system with enhanced functionality and personalization. It floats on top of the mid bolster. The hardware in the UConnect system is five times faster than its previous generation and can accommodate over-the-air, real-time updates. It runs on an Android operating system which is compatible with a host of applications and operating systems. The new UConnect-5 system also offers enhanced personalization and customization. The New Jeep Compass comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The multi-function instrument cluster behind the steering wheel is now a much larger, 10.25-inch digital display and has 24 configurable content screens in it. The content screens can be accessed from the buttons provided on the newly designed steering wheel.
