Jeep India has made significant moves in the SUV market with the launch of the 2023 Compass in a new 4X2 automatic variant, starting at a competitive price of Rs 23.99 lakh. Adding to the excitement, the US-based manufacturer has also reduced the price of the base-spec variant, which now starts at Rs 20.49 lakh, ex-showroom.
Let’s delve into the details of these changes and the introduction of the special edition Black Shark variant.
2023 Jeep Compass 4X2 The latest addition to the Jeep Compass lineup is the 4X2 variant, powered by the same robust 2.0-litre diesel engine found in the 4X4 variant. Paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, this engine delivers an impressive 170 horsepower and 350 Nm of peak torque.
The 2023 Jeep Compass offers five variants for customers to choose from: Sport, Longitude, Longitude+, Limited, and Model S. These variants cater to a wide range of preferences and requirements.
In terms of cosmetic changes, the updated Jeep lineup boasts a fresh blacked-out grille, sleek side sills, a chrome beltline, and redesigned alloy wheels. The Longitude+ variant takes it up a notch with the inclusion of a panoramic sunroof and a convenient wireless charger, in addition to the features available in the Longitude trim.
Black Shark Edition For those seeking a touch of exclusivity and style, Jeep India has introduced the Black Shark edition of the Compass. This special edition embraces a range of cosmetic enhancements, including blacked-out exterior accents, stylish black alloy wheels, and eye-catching red accents on the dashboard and steering wheel. The upholstery features red stitching, adding to the overall sporty and premium feel.
The Black Shark edition proudly displays black-finished Jeep logos and ‘Compass’ badging, along with distinctive black shark emblems on the front fenders. Completing the bold look are black roof rails and black ORVM (Outside Rear View Mirror) housings.
The 2023 Jeep Compass 4×2 and Black Shark editions signify significant updates to the beloved SUV. The introduction of the 4X2 variant makes the Compass more accessible to a wider audience, offering affordability without compromising on performance. On the other hand, the Black Shark edition provides a distinct and stylish appearance, making a statement on the road.
Jeep’s commitment to enhancing its offerings in the Indian market continues to attract SUV enthusiasts, providing them with more choices and a unique driving experience.
