Similar to other special editions of Compass launched in the past, only a limited number of 5th Anniversary Edition will be offered
Five years back on July 31, 2017, Jeep had launched its Compass SUV in India at a starting price of Rs 14.95 lakh. Over the years, the company has built a niche fan following and added more products to its portfolio. Apart from Compass, it has Wrangler and Meridian SUVs on offer. Later this year, new-gen Grand Cherokee will also be launched in India.
To celebrate five successful years of its primary volume generator, Jeep has launched a special 5th Anniversary Edition of Compass. It gets styling updates across exteriors and interiors. Engine and other internals will be largely the same as available with standard model.
Jeep Compass 5th Anniversary Edition features
One of the distinctive features of Jeep Compass 5th Anniversary Edition will be a new ‘5th Anniversary’ logo. Loaded with advanced safety and technology features the special-edition Jeep Compass offers Satin Granite Crystal Lower Fascia, body-coloured claddings, accent colour roof rails, 18-inch granite crystal finish alloy wheels and the commemorative 5th Anniversary badging amongst other elements.
The approach could be similar to what Jeep has used in the past for its other special edition SUVs. For example, Compass Night Eagle Edition that was launched earlier this year in April, had received glossy black treatment across multiple parts such as grille, fog lamp housing, roof rails, alloy wheels, ORVMs, etc.
