However, there has been no word from Jeep as of yet whether this special variant will come to India. We doubt that it would come anytime in the near future because the company has been planning to bring in the Trailhawk variant in India since long. Even if the Compass S variant finds its way here, it will only be after the Trailhawk variant is launched in India. The coming months will also see a new challenger for Compass being launched in the form of the MG Hector.
