Jeep has launched their first ever Global, Limited Edition model in India today – Only 250 units on offer
Black and Dark editions are clearly the most popular special edition trends in the global automotive market currently. Almost all OEMs have been trying to bring in similar special editions and juice more out of their promising nameplates. Even in India, multiple OEMs have brought in Dark/Black editions and the latest to join the bandwagon is Jeep.
Jeep already sells a Night Eagle edition of the Compass in multiple international markets. Now, Jeep India has launched the same in India, with a tag line of ‘Be Fearless, Be Heard’. Speaking about prices, the Jeep Compass Night Eagle SUV is priced from Rs 20.14 lakhs ex-sh for the base variant and goes all the way to Rs 23.31 lakh for the top variant. Below are the detailed prices.
Talking about the Night Eagle edition, it features multiple styling updates on the standard Compass. While there will be no mechanical changes, the Night Eagle edition will feature a blacked out roof, blacked out roof rails, all-black alloy wheels and even glossy black accents on the grille.
On the outside, it will also flaunt ‘Night Eagle’ badging on the side fenders and boot lid. In International markets, the blacked-out roof comes as an option, but in India, that is not the case. For example, in the UK, the Night Eagle edition comes in 6 mono-tone colour options and 5 dual-colour options (blacked-out roof). In India, it is offered in four colour choices – Vocal White, Brilliant Black, Exotica Red and Magnesio Grey.
The black-centric theme will also run on the inside of the car. Unsurprisingly, the Night Eagle will feature an all-black cabin and techno leather upholstery with black accents. On the creature-comfort features department, the Night Eagle edition is expected to continue to offer features which a standard Compass does, like keyless entry, push button start-stop, touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, dual zone climate control and a lot more.
No change in specs
Mechanically, there will be no change on the SUV. It will continue to derive power from 2 BS 6 compliant engine options. These would include a 1.4 litre 160 hp turbocharged petrol motor and a 2 litre 171 hp diesel guzzler. The petrol engine is available with 7-speed dual clutch autobox with 4×2 drive system. The diesel motor will be available with a manual gearbox and a 9-speed automatic unit. Former is via 4×2 system while latter gets 4×4 system. All Night Eagle trims are based on the Longitudinal Plus trim of the Compass SUV. Features list remains same.
