Voir!! We have just had the first few glimpses of the Beast. Test-mules of the soon to be launched Compass Trailhawk was spotted on the royal roads of Jaipur. And for lovers of crossover SUV, we bet this is one offer that you won't be able to resist. Reportedly, the new variant has been reworked to comply with the Bharat Stage VI emission norms which are set to go into effect in 2020. This is also the reason why the Compass Trailhawk India-launch got delayed in the first place. The Compass trim was supposed to debut earlier this year.
Jeep will now have five variants viz Sport, Latitude, Limited, Limited Plus, and Trailhawk for the Indian Audience. The Trailhawk will be the range-topping flagship variant. It will not only be equipped with additional top-spec features and much-awaited diesel-automatic configuration. Transmission duties will rest on a nine-speed gearbox.

"The key to the look of the Trailhawk is distinctive proportions ‘’, Nick Vardis, Principal Exterior Designer.
True to its name, the Trailhawk promises to surprise lovers of speed and adventure in more than a few ways. The trim comes equipped with Selec-Terrain 4WD mode selector for low range four-wheel drive making it a true off-roader. Despite the off-road capabilities, the trailhawk has a sleek design coupled with a much desired forward motion look. Some key design highlights include:
Cleverly designed front and rear bumpers (30 Approach Angle, 33.6-degree Departure Angle)
Greater Ground Clearance (20mm higher than standard variant )
Black anti-glare bonnet decal
Dual-tone Alloy Wheels
In addition to this, Jeep Compass Trailhawk gets a panoramic sunroof and a larger 8.4-inch infotainment system. The infotainment system was also part of the Compass Limited Plus. With all the added features, we expect the top-trim to get a slightly higher price tag (around Rs 2.5 lakh more) than the current top-spec trim. On Indian roads, the Jeep Compass Trailhawk will lock horns with the likes of Isuzu MU-X, Toyota Fortuner, and the Ford Endeavour.
