What’s new on the Compass Night Eagle?
The Compass Night Eagle gets special black accents on the outside and inside. It gets black inserts on the grille and window line, black 18-inch alloy wheels, and black Jeep badges. On the inside, you’ll find part-leather seat upholstery and black trim on the dashboard. The Compass Night Eagle edition is available white, black, grey and red exterior paint shades.
The Compass Night Eagle is based on the Longitude Plus trim, which means it is fairly well equipped, with features like an 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, push-button start, dual-zone climate control, dual front airbags, ABS, EBD and Xenon projector headlamps.
What engine options does the Compass Night Eagle get?
The Jeep Compass Night Eagle gets three of the five powertrain options otherwise available on the model. You miss out on the manual gearbox for the 163hp 1.4-litre, turbo-petrol, but you do get the engine with a 7-speed dual-clutch auto. The 173hp, 2.0-liter turbo-diesel, meanwhile, is available with both the 6-speed manual and the 9-speed torque-converter automatic, but only the automatic version comes with AWD; all other models are front-wheel drive.
What are Jeep India’s future plans?
As reported earlier, the Compass is due for a major mid-life update that will be unveiled early next year. Expect multiple changes on the exterior and on the interior, including a much larger infotainment screen and new steering wheel, among other things. Apart from the Compass facelift, Jeep is also readying a seven-seat ‘D-SUV’ that will come a little later and will get a more powerful iteration of the current 2.0-litre diesel engine.
