The facelifted crossover picks up a few subtle changes externally, however it’s the interior that has gained the most from the update.
The 2022 Jeep Compass has been officially unveiled at the Guangzhou motor show, just weeks after the facelifted crossover was leaked online.
The exterior updates are subtle, with the standard Compass getting a revised front end with a new grille, lower air intake, and restyled fog lights.
Meanwhile, the Trailhawk variant (shown below) picks up new alloys, a red and matte black bonnet decal, and repositioned lower fog lights.
The rear of the car is largely unchanged, however the biggest improvements can be found inside the cabin
A new steering wheel is fitted standard, alongside a new centre console, restyled shifter, wireless smartphone charger, a 10.1-inch digital instrument cluster and a reconfigured dashboard with a tablet-style 10.25-inch infotainment system.
CarAdvice understands the infotainment setup will run on Fiat Chrysler’s Google-based Uconnect 5 system, as shared with the new Fiat 500e and other recent FCA vehicles.
In China, the facelifted Compass offers the choice of two turbocharged petrol engines: a 1.3-litre unit mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch auto and front-wheel-drive, or a 1.4-litre mill paired to a nine-speed torque-converter automatic and all-wheel-drive.
It is unclear what powertrains will underpin the update for the Australian market, however the pre-facelift Compass is offered locally with a choice of 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel or 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engines, depending on variant.
