Starting off with the exterior design, the new Compass facelift comes with a slightly reworked set of front LED headlamp units. Jeep has also tweaked the front grille, although it still carries forward the signature seven-vertical slats. The new Compass facelift SUV also comes with reworked front bumpers with new housing for the fog lamps and a newly designed air intake at the centre.

The side and rear profiles, however, remain pretty similar to each other. However, it does come with a new set of alloy wheels, slightly tweaked taillights and faux skid plate as well.
