Jeep Compass SUV has added a new variant called Black Shark Edition with 4X2 credentials. The new variant will be offered in both manual and automatic versions.

The new Jeep Compass 2WD Red Black Edition will come powered with a 2.0-litre diesel engine which comes mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox.

The SUV is capable of sprinting 0-100 kmph in just 9.8 seconds. Jeep is not offering any petrol variant of its entry-level SUV in India.

The special edition Compass will be positioned below the 4×4 automatic variants of the SUV. The new Compass wears a new red and black exterior colour theme. on the outside, the edition comes with blacked out grille, side sills, badges and the chrome belt line. The front fenders wear Black Shark badging. One of the major changes is that it now gets alloy wheels that are taken from the Meridian but they have a blacked-out finish instead of dual-tone.

The interiors also get an all-black treatment with red accents and stitchings all around. There are red accents with black upholstery which gives a sporty appeal to the cabin. Jeep said it has introduced the automatic transmission option in lower variants too which makes its AT versions around 20 per cent more affordable than before, reducing the price of its entry-level variants by almost 6 lakh.

Jeep has also unveiled the new Overland Edition of the Meridian SUV today. The new edition of Jeep’s latest three-row SUV joins two other special edition versions called Meridian Upland and Meridian X. The Meridian Overland Edition comes mostly with cosmetic updates.
