The standard Jeep Compass has been a runaway success model for the company in India. In an effort to further strengthen its foothold in the country, the company is likely to introduce a new top-spec off-road capable version of the Compass, called the Trail Hawk, sometime soon in India. The feature loaded SUV was last seen at a private event which was held in March this year. Here below are the top five features of the Jeep Compass Trail Hawk -
The Compass Trail Hawk gets revised front and rear bumpers and a satin metallic black finish at the front and on the side accents, instead of the regular chrome. Focused on off-road activity, the front bumper gets dual tow hook setup, while the rear one gets only one. The SUV sits on unique 17-inch two tone alloy wheels. To distinguish it from the regular version, the car features a 'Trailhawk' badge on the boot-lid with a 4x4 badging.
The Compass Trail Hawk will be offered with a 2.0-litre diesel motor producing 171bhp of power and 350Nm of torque with a nine-speed AT, all-wheel-drive and a low-range gearbox as part of the package. The Compass has three other driving modes to tackle different terrains – mud, sand and snow.
Adding up to its sporty quotient, the Trail Hawk will be offered with an all-black interior and red highlights for the seats, along with leather wrapping on the gear lever, steering and the panel. The front seats also feature the Trail Hawk badging.
In addition to standard safety features like dual-front airbags and ABS with EBD, the Trail Hawk additionally offers hill descent control and six parking sensors at the rear, instead of the regular four sensors.
The upcoming Jeep Compass Trail Hawk will compete against the likes of the Hyundai Tucson 4WD and the Skoda Yeti amongst the five-seater premium SUVs. It is expected to be priced under Rs 30 lakhs at the time of its launch.
