Jeep Compass Night Eagle SUV Price – Details
The Black and Dark editions are the two common limited edition themes currently in the global automobile industry. Nearly all OEMs have tried to extract similar special editions and juice from their promising names. Multiple OEMs have also put in Dark / Black versions in India and Jeep is the latest to enter the bandwagon.
Jeep also offers the Compass ‘s Night Eagle version in many international markets. Now, in India, Jeep India has launched the same with a ‘Be Fearless, Be Heard’ tag line. In terms of prices, the Jeep Compass Night Eagle SUV is priced for the base variant from Rs 20.14 lakhs ex-sh and goes all the way to Rs 23.31 lakh for the highest version.
Speaking of the Night Eagle version, the regular Compass offers several styling changes. While no mechanical changes will occur, a black-out roof, black-out roof rails, all-black alloy wheels and even glossy black accents on the grill will feature on the Night Eagle edition.
It also flaunts ‘Night Eagle’ badging on the side fenders and the boot cover on the outside as well. The blacked-out roof comes as an alternative in foreign markets but that is not the case in India. The Night Eagle version in the UK for example comes in 6 mono-tone paint options and 5 dual-color options (blacked-out roof). In India, it is sold in Red and Black with only two color options.
The black-based theme would also run on the car’s interior. Unsurprisingly, an all-new cabin and retro leather upholstery with chrome highlights will appear at the Jeep Compass Night Eagle. On the side of creature comfort devices, the Jeep Compass Night Eagle version is supposed to continue delivering functionality as a regular Compass does, such as keyless entry, push-button start-stop, touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, dual-zone climate control and many more.
Mechanically, no adjustment would exist on the SUV. It will continue to derive power from the engine options which comply with 2 BS 6. This will involve a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine of 160 hp and a 2-liter diesel guzzler of 171 hp. The petrol engine is available with a dual-clutch auto box of 7-speed with a 4-speed drive mechanism.
The diesel engine would come with a manual gearbox and an electronic 9-speed drive. One is by a 4-basic system, whereas the latter has a 4-basic system. Both Night Eagle trimmings are based on the Compass SUV’s Longitudinal Plus trim. The list of features stays the same.
