After much anticipation, Jeep Compass 2021 was officially - and finally - unveiled for the Indian car market on Thursday. The SUV is expected to be launched towards the end of January with FCA India confirming that this is also when customer test drives across the nation will start.

But why exactly is FCA India upbeat about the prospects of Compass 2021? First launched around three years back, Compass came about as a comparatively affordable offering - when compared to the other cars Jeep has in India - and had the looks and off-road capabilities to match its lucrative price point. Rivals have upped their respective game in the ensuing years but Compass 2021 is hoping to hit back and hit back hard. "We have now raised the bar, making the New Jeep Compass an even more compelling proposition, and one that incorporates customer feedback," says Partha Datta, President and Managing Director, FCA India. "The New Compass package offers an all-new level of sophistication, passenger comfort, technology and user experience while remaining true to its Jeep DNA."

Styling remains one of the several key elements on the Compass and the 2021 edition, while continuing with its seven-slot grille and trapezoidal wheel arches, gets headlight units with reflectors and LED projectors. But the inside is where the bulk of the updates really are at.
