The Jeep Compass is a perfect cocktail of city sophistication and adventurous brawn, today we see its nocturnal alter-ego, with an exclusive ‘Night Eagle’ edition.
If you’re looking for a limited-edition trim for a city cruiser, you should pick from these three cards: Sport, Tech, and Dark. Sport, if you’d like a touch of motorsport. Tech, for a digital edge while driving and Dark, if you think it looks better in black. In the true spirit of black beauty, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) reintroduced the Jeep Compass to India with a brand new cosmetic touch. The Night Eagle edition has been a part of international markets since 2018, to create a sense of ownership exclusivity for Jeep customers. Arriving in India today and limited to just 250 builds, the nocturnal face of the Compass could be yours if you hurry.
The most notable detail is its blacked-out grille. The Jeep badge and roof get the same treatment too. The 18-inch alloy wheels are painted in black as well. On the inside, the upholstery and the dashboard are swanked out in black leather while keeping up with the Longitude Plus’s spec-pack, which means you get the best of what the Jeep Compass 2020 has to offer.
On the inside, expect a 7.0″ UConnect infotainment system, jacked-up with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, push-button start, dual-zone climate control, dual front airbags, ABS. In terms of driving assist, you’ll get specs like Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, Electric Parking Brake, and more.
