The Jeep Compass has been the bestseller for the entire FCA group in India ever since its launch in 2017. Right in the face of the festive season, Jeep has strategically launched the Compass Black Pack Limited Edition at ₹ 20.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Black Pack is a Limited Edition and is only available in the top-spec Limited (O) variant. As the name suggests, the Black Pack sports several black elements inside-out to add to the sporty appeal of the SUV.
On the outside, the wing mirrors and the alloy wheels of the Compass Black Pack is finished in gloss black, though the alloys are the same 17-inchers seen on the top-end Limited variant of the Jeep Compass. Additionally, the roof of the Black Pack Edition is also finished in black and adds a contrast body colour appeal to its looks. The Black pack Edition is available in three body colours- Vocal White, Minimal Grey and Magnesio Grey. On the inside, Jeep hasn't made any changes in the layout of the cabin but has replaced the dual-tone off-white and black colour theme with all-black interior with chrome inserts on the steering wheel, instrument cluster, central console and the door pads.
Same as the Limited Variant, the Compass Black Pack Edition is powered by the 2.0 litre, four-cylinder, Multijet diesel engine that churns out 173bhp of max power and 350Nm of peak torque and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Out in the market, the Jeep Compass battles the likes of the Hyundai Tuscon, Mahindra XUV5OO and Tata Hexa. The Black Pack edition is just one of the initial launches Jeep has in its pipeline to revive the Compass range. The American SUV maker will also launch a fully loaded Limited Plus variant of the Compass soon which will be equipped with a sunroof and larger infotainment touchscreen. It will also be followed by the Compass Trailhawk that is developed with more focus on off-roading, the launch of which is scheduled for 2019.
