Just before the start of the festive season, we have seen special launches from Jeep, Skoda, Renault, Audi, MG and Mercedes-Benz in September. These are nothing but limited editions or special editions of existing models that get some enhancements and features to create excitement in the market, where sales begin to peak.
For the customer, this means exciting times ahead if you’re in the market for a new car. Here are all the special edition cars launched from September 2023:
Jeep Compass and Meridian
Jeep has launched the Compass Black Edition in India. This comes with a black Jeep logo, Black Shark badge on the front fenders and 18-inch black alloys. Meanwhile the lower parts of the SUV are finished in gloss black as well and the roof and body covers finish the body color. Take a closer look at the updates made here.
Meanwhile, the Meridian Overland version is based on the top-of-the-line Limited Plus model and gets exterior updates such as newaloi, body-colored covers and a revised grille as well as some interior updates, which are detailed here.
Both of these continue to be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The Compass also comes in a 2WD AT trim which has lowered the diesel entry point of the Compass.
Skoda Kushaq and Slavia

Skoda has launched the Kushaq Onyx Plus and Slavia Ambition Plus trims for the festive season. The Kushaq comes in Candy White and Carbon Steel options while the Slavia is available in all colors.

Renault Kiger, Triber and Kwid
Renault has launched an Urban Black Edition for its Kiger, Triber and Kwid. Only 300 units each will be produced. This limited edition is based on the last variants and comes with a new black shade on the Kwid and Triber. Kiger is already released with this color option.

A large version of the Mercedes G63
Only 25 units of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG Grand Edition have been offered in India. This will probably be one of the last few models before the updated version from next year. Existing Maybach, S-Class and Mercedes-AMG customers will get first dibs on the G63 Grand Edition.
This limited edition comes with a few cosmetic updates such as black-black exterior and highlights in Kalahari Gold Magno. Meanwhile inside, there is an all-black theme with gold accents. Black Nappa leather is used for the seats with gold stitching. Check it out in all its glory here.
These limited edition models offer exclusivity from regular variants and customers can enjoy better offers. Also, the festive season isn’t over yet and we suspect more special edition models are on the way. Let us know which of these you would like if you are looking for a new car.
