It was only a few days back when we test drove the Jeep Compass Trailhawk and now the same has been launched in India at INR 26.8 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India). At this price point, it costs about INR 3.7 lakh more than the previous top-of-the-line Compass Limited Plus 4x4 2.0 diesel trim which is currently available at INR 23.11 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Its pre-bookings had commenced from the 12th of this month at 82 FCA dealerships across the country.

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk demands quite a premium over the earlier top-spec model, and it's not hard to figure out why. To start with, it comes with a diesel-automatic combination. There's a BS-VI 2.0-litre Multijet II engine producing 173PS of maximum power and 350Nm of peak torque, paired with a 9-speed torque converter.

Another major factor which contributes to higher costs is its 'Trail-Rated' badge, which means that it packs a number of far more superior off-roading equipment and features. To name a few, it comes with Jeep’s Active Drive Low 4x4 system that includes a 20:1 crawl ratio and low range, hill-descent control and an additional Rock mode for the Selec-Terrain system. Apart from this, the Trail-Rated SUV benefits from 30 mm higher ground clearance, and better approach (26.5 degrees), departure (31.6 degrees) and ramp break-over (21.2 degrees) angles.
