Is the Trailhawk even available in 2021 ?

If you have the budget, do consider the S option. I don't know if anniversary version is worth it, but the 2.5L is most definitely a bargain for the extra features in the top spec. Usually the least equipped and the most equipped offer value because manufacturers shy away from removing kit beyond a point when it comes to base trim and charging too much for the fully loaded trim. At the extreme ends of the specs, it's easy to lose a customer to a competitor. Also we tend to retain top spec cars for longer as there isn't much missing to warrant an upgrade. Ventilated seats are really useful btw. Having said all that I also agree that it's a never ending game with something better on offer for every extra couple of lakhs.

Other than Tucson, which are the closest alternatives to top-end Jeep compass diesel AT?

The base variant of the Endeavour is just around 1.25 lacs away. Superb Sportline is around 1.7 lacs away. Rejected both these due to their large size.

The Sport variant gains:
1. Reverse camera
2. LED reflector headlamps
3. Bigger HU screen

Key omission is the dual zone auto AC, which is not justified for a car of this price. At least a single zone auto AC should have been made available.

The reversing camera and headlight/foglamp upgrades can be easily done, but the climate control is not something that can be retrofitted later. Looks like Jeep is saving a lot of money on the base variant by chopping off the auto AC feature.

Also, the price premium for the DDCT gearbox is 2.5 lacs! Was it the same for the pre-facelift as well? If the climate control was present in sport variant, many prospective Seltos GTX customers would have seriously considered the Jeep sport variant.

You might want to wait for the VW Tiguan to be launched in few months. Itís a size bigger (not too big) and will have solid build and creature comforts.

Also pricing will touch 40L OTR, not to mention no diesel variant and questionable ASS.

It also gets 17" alloys. IIRC, it earlier got 16" alloys.

I have exactly the same feelings. Sport variant should have been launched with dual zone auto AC, and if possible electrically foldable mirrors. The base variant Diesel would have been a perfect choice for many cross segment shoppers in my opinion.

And also it doesn't make sense to omit the manual 4x4(at least I haven't seen any info that one such variant is available), since Compass is best in it's Diesel manual avatar. I was pretty impressed with the new interiors and looks and was much inclined towards getting a sport variant, but now everything is off the place until Jeep launches some special edition with some additional features. Overall, with the facelift, I felt the variant distribution and the corresponding price is even more messed up than it was.

Quoting myself from a previous post before the price launch. The S trim has breached my expectation on the price by +68 k.

In cricket parlance I would say FCA has run its self out on the variant distribution, added features,price and the must have 4*4 for the diesel automatic.

Two factors that I noticed.

A) They had to include a lot more features on most of its variants to keep the Compass in tune with what the competitors or other brands are offering. This leads to a price rise.

B)The diesel automatic has to have a 4*4 option. So for a person who wants a diesel and an automatic and does not want a 4*4 has no choice. In the end he ends up paying approximately another 2.5 lakhs for something he does not need. Hence the Compass looks very pricey compared to very other car on the market. The Compass diesel AT is around 3.5L ex showroom costlier than the equivalent MT.

FCA needs to to address this segment by probably bringing in another gear box to sort out this problem. If they had a diesel automatic for about a lakh more than it's equivalent MT variant the prices would have been better accepted.

Jeep's own DNA of 4*4 is now proving to be its biggest Achilles' heel here in India. Not sure of how they are coping in other markets.

FCA, how about borrowing the Hyundai 6 speed auto box. Tata has anyway tuned it way better. :

I foresee even lower number for FCA than before. Frankly, there will be only few who will spend so much and have desire to get something smaller in a compact size.

The interiors looks best in class and they could have larger bookings had they tried to maintain old prices. I know, it’s difficult but Compass was already an expensive product. Unlike, Fortuner or Endeavour, it has to appeal to a price sensitive customer base and this pricing is sort of no-where. At lower end, we have Kia/ Hyundai and by paying 10-20% more one can get the larger Endeavour/ Fortuner.

Looks like Jeep is happy with the current sales number and not interested in adding sizeable numbers. May be they are more interested in the export market and using India as a low cost manufacturing unit with a small / exclusive presence in Indian market.

Can anyone please share variant wise specs. I couldn't get it exactly from the launch video. May be I missed some part of it. Thanks

The Sport didn't have it earlier, and if they included it, it would not be an entry variant anymore.

The old longitude had them and more at a similar price, but hardly anybody bought them. Even the new sport variant, nobody would buy. People usually skip the entry variant.

The dealer insurance rates are so reasonable. The dealership in Mumbai hai 1L+ for insurance even for the pre-facelift variants!

Also attaching the brochure with details on all variants.
