Jeep Compass Night Eagle launched in India from Rs 20.14 lakh, limited to 250 units
Jeep India has introduced a new limited edition of the Jeep Compass SUV. Called the Jeep Compass Night Eagle, this celebrates the third anniversary of the Jeep Compass going on sale in India. Only 250 units will be made, based on the mid-spec Longitude Plus trim level.
Online bookings have already begun and prices start from Rs 20.14 lakh for the turbo-petrol. This goes up to Rs 20.75 lakh for the diesel-manual and onto Rs 23.31 lakh for the diesel automatic. The new Longitude Plus variant will continue to be available on the standard Compass after Night Eagle production ends.
The Night Eagle has the Jeep seven-slat grill finished in gloss-black and grey. Also seen here are black accents on the lower front fascia and dark-finished alloy wheels. The badging is also blacked out. The interiors get gloss-black inserts on the dash and black 'Techno Leather' upholstery that uses a mix of cloth and leather. This SUV also gets Night Eagle badging on the bootlid. Four paint options are available, Vocal White, Exotica Red, Brilliant Black and Magnesio Grey.
Notable features available on the Longitude Plus variant are cruise control (AT only), seven-inch touchscreen infotainment, keyless entry with engine start/stop button, power-folding outer-mirrors, cornering lamps and rear parking camera. Safety features include four airbags, electronic parking brake, traction control and hill start assist.
The Compass Night Eagle will remain mechanically unchanged. The Jeep Compass is powered by a 1.4-litre petrol engine that makes 162PS of power and 250Nm of torque. A 2.0-litre diesel engine is also available that puts out 173PS of power and 350Nm of torque, coupled with a 9-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. The petrol gets seven-speed DCT. All-wheel drive is also available.
The Jeep Compass SUV is set to be facelifted soon, with the new version debuting in late 2020 and going on sale in 2021. A seven-seater version will also join the line-up after that. The Jeep Compass competes with the Skoda Karoq and Hyundai Tucson.
