Jeep Compass Joins The Dark Forces: Night Eagle Edition Launched in India

The colour Black will never go out of fashion, at least in the automotive industry where manufacturers keep visiting this shade to sprinkle some stealth on their offerings. Joining hands with dark forces is the order of the day. Tata Motors has already put it forth that deleting all the chrome and shiny elements for a healthy dose of murdered-out elements works wonders! Jeep India too, has joined the roster by launching the highly-anticipated Night Eagle trim for the Compass range at INR 21.95 Lakh. The launch of the Compass Night Eagle trim comes as the company has been observing strong demand for the Compass portfolio. Based on the new Compass SUV, the Night Eagle comes in a 'black' theme.

What does it get?

All the shiny elements on the exterior have made way for gloss-black inserts splattered all across the bodywork. The Jeep Compass Night Eagle gets a gloss-black finish for the grille, grille rings, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rail, ORVMs and fog lamp bezels. The cabin also carries the dark theme forward as it gets a piano black interior complemented by black cloth/vinyl seats with light tungsten stitching and black vinyl inserts for the door trim and IP.

Features

This all-black trim of the Jeep Compass SUV gets a plethora of features, including a 10.1-inch infotainment system, a 7-inch instrument cluster, etc. Besides these provisions, the Jeep® Compass Night Eagle also gets Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control, Hill Start Assist, All-Speed Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and Electronic Parking Brake for occupants’ comfort and safety.

Powertrain options

The Jeep Compass Night Eagle is available with a choice between the 2.0L Multijet Turbo Diesel with a 6-speed manual transmission and the 1.4L Multiair Turbo Petrol with a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Official statement

Commenting on the launch of the new Night Eagle in India, Mr Nipun J Mahajan, Head of Jeep® Brand – India, said, “The Jeep Compass Night Eagle brings a new level of Boldness and Elegance with its all-black styling. The high demand for the Trailhawk, which was sold out in two months of launch, is testimony to the excitement for the Jeep Compass range and we expect to see similar enthusiasm for the Night Eagle.”
