Considering the strong demand in the Jeep Compass portfolio especially for the Trailhawk Edition, the company decided to launch the Compass Night Eagle trim, which now has a waiting period of around four months. Ever since its launch in February 2022, the ‘Trail Rated’ trim of the Jeep Compass SUV has received an overwhelming response from customers in the country and all the units in its first batch were sold out within two months.
The Jeep Compass Night Eagle Edition has been given a completely black outer theme. It gets a gloss-black finish on the grille, grille rings, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, ORVMs, fog lamp bezels etc. The interiors of the new Compass Night Eagle get black cloth/vinyl seats with piano black theme, tungsten stitching and door trim and black vinyl inserts for the IP.
Connectivity and safety features have been provided in the cabin with a variety of exclusive Night Eagle accents. Its cabin has a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system and 7-inch instrument cluster. Apart from this, safety features like Dual Zone Climate Control, Hill Start Assist, Traction Control System, and Electronic Stability Control are also provided.
Coming to the engine, the Compass Night Eagle Edition is offered with 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo Petrol and 2.0-Litre Multijet Turbo Diesel engines. The petrol engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic and the diesel engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Commenting on the launch of the new Jeep Compass Night Eagle in India, Nipun J Mahajan, Head, Jeep India, said, “The Jeep Compass Night Eagle with its all-black styling brings a whole new level of boldness and elegance to the Trailhawk. It was sold out within two months of launch due to high demand. This is a testament to the excitement for the Jeep Compass range and we expect to see similar enthusiasm for the Night Eagle.”
Jeep India is gearing up to launch its upcoming SUV Jeep Meridian in India. It is planned to launch in June 2022. However, many of the Jeep dealerships have officially started taking bookings and it will be delivered to the dealerships in the coming few months.
