    The 7-seater Compass looks similar to the standard Compass but features significant changes post the C-pillar, in order to accommodate the extra row of seats. The window line appears to be extended and continues to go upwards post the C-pillar accommodating a large quarter glass. The rear profile is also tweaked and now features sleeker and wider tail lamps.

    Along with the updated aesthetics, the 7-seater Compass should also get a slightly longer wheelbase in order to accommodate the extra pair of seats. It might also be slightly longer in length than the standard Compass.

    The 7-seater Compass is also expected to get an updated front end of the Compass facelift. It is likely to get updated headlamps, the latest iteration of the 7-slot grille and a redesigned front bumper. 

    Under the hood, the 7-seater Compass will carry forward the same 2.0-litre diesel engine on offer on the current Compass. It makes 173PS of power and 350Nm of torque mated to a 6-speed MT and a 9-speed AT. It will also get a petrol engine, but it is expected to be the new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine offered globally, instead of the current 1.4-litre turbo unit. The 1.3-litre unit makes 130PS and is mated to a 6-speed MT. It’s available in a 150PS tune as well, with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic.

    The 7-seater Jeep Compass is expected to debut by 2021 along with the facelifted version of the 5-seater Compass. It will take on the likes of the MG Hector Plus and the upcoming second-gen Mahindra XUV500 and the upcoming Tata Gravitas.
