Christened as the Compass Black Pack edition, the new variant will carry a slightly higher price tag. It could cost around Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000 more than the regular Limited variant. In case you are lucky and the Compass Black Pack edition makes a timely debut you could join the much awaited Compass Trailhawk, a cross-country ride, on your black beast.
According to a new report, Jeep is planning to introduce a Black Pack variant of the Compass SUV. The new version will have a black roof, black alloy wheels, black mirrors and an all-black interior with leather seats. The Black Pack SUV is expected to have the same mechanical and engine specifications as the standard Jeep Compass. It is likely to be launched in India by the next month.
Kevin Flynn, MD of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles India, also hinted at the possible launch of a higher-spec variant of Compass, with the name ‘Limited Plus’. The new trim will get a number of added specifications and equipment like a powered driver’s seat, a sunroof and an 8.4-inch touch infotainment system. It is also expected to arrive by the next month.
The launch of Compass Trailhawk will, however, be delayed by the company for early 2019.
Key attraction on the Black Pack edition would be all-black wing mirrors, alloy wheels, and the roof. It may, however, be offered either as an optional package or a limited edition variant. Besides cosmetics though there would be little changes to power and features. The new variant will inherit the power numbers of the standard petrol and diesel engine options of the Jeep Compass.
The petrol version has the 1.4-litre Multiair petrol engine churning out 160bhp of power and 250 Nm of torque. The 2.0-litre MultiJet II engine diesel variant, on the other hand, scales 170bhp of power and 350 Nm of torque. Four-wheel drive will be limited to top spec ‘Limited’ variant.
However, Kevin Flynn did reveal that a new top-spec ‘Limited Plus’ variant would be on offer soon which will be offered with premium features like such as large 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, powered driver’s seat and a sunroof.
