Jeep India is now rolling out the Black Pack edition of the Compass. The new version gets a handful of minor styling updates that work together to help the SUV look a tad bolder. The Jeep Compass Black Pack is based on the LIMITED (O) trim and costs Rs 15,000 higher, readers who are prospective customers, communicated to IndianAutosBlog.com. Note that Jeep India has not announced prices.
The latest development is in line with an earlier report, which cited Kevin Flynn, managing director of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) India, as saying that the company plans to launch new variants of its most affordable offering in the country. The new model is mechanically similar to the regular trims. Moreover, the Black Pack is a limited-run model that should help the company attract more new car buyers during this year’s festive season.
The highlights of the new Jeep Compass Black Pack edition include a set of 17-inch gloss-finished alloy wheels, all-black interior colour theme, and black ORVM housings. The new model is available in three colour options – Vocal white, Minimal Grey and Magnesio Grey colours.

The petrol engine outputs a maximum power of 162 PS along with a peak torque of 250 Nm.
