New Jeep Renegade and Compass Night Eagle models launched
The Renegade and Compass Night Eagle versions are available now, priced from £23,445 and £27,230 respectively
The Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass are now available in a new trim level called Night Eagle. It’s essentially a black styling pack for the mid-range Longitude versions of the Renegade and the Compass. The Night Eagle models are on sale now, with the Renegade Night Eagle costing from £23,445 and the Compass Night Eagle starting at £27,230.
The Renegade Night Eagle costs an extra £1,000 over the Longitude and adds black 18-inch alloy wheels, grille surrounds, gloss black badging and tinted windows. Buyers can pick from one of five exterior colours at no additional cost.
Inside, the Renegade Night Eagle gets dual-zone air conditioning and adaptive cruise control as standard, as well as Jeep’s 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Interior tweaks include black interior upholstery and gloss black accents on the steering wheel, speakers and centre console.
The Renegade Night Eagle can be ordered with a choice of two petrol engines and a single diesel engine. The entry-level 1.0-litre petrol engine produces 118bhp and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The more powerful 1.3-litre petrol engine produces 148bhp, and can only be specced with a six-speed automatic gearbox. For higher-mileage drivers, the 1.6-litre diesel engine produces 118bhp and is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox achieving economy of up to 48.7mpg.
The larger Jeep Compass Night Eagle commands a £1,500 premium over the Longitude model of the Compass and features similar exterior design tweaks with a gloss black grille, fog light and window surrounds, 18-inch alloy wheels, black badging and a ‘Night Eagle’ emblem. Five standard exterior colours are available, with an optional two-tone paint scheme incorporating a black roof costing £400 extra.
Inside, the interior features ‘techno’ leather and cloth trimmed seats, gloss back trim and an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment touchscreen with sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The front-wheel drive version of the Compass Night Eagle is available with either a 1.4-litre petrol engine producing 138bhp, or a 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine. The larger 2.0-litre diesel engine is only available with four-wheel drive. All versions can only be specced with a six-speed manual gearbox.
