If you feel a sunroof is, perhaps, the only missing link in the Compass, Jeep India has decided to address that anomaly. There’s a new top-end variant of the Compass featuring a panoramic sunroof called the Limited Plus Edition that’s set to launch around September 20. Unofficial bookings have already begun with certain dealerships accepting a token amount of Rs 1 lakh and promising deliveries around Navratra, which begins October 10.

Sunroof aside, expect this variant to feature a dual-tone exterior, a bigger 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system (instead of the 7-inch one in the Limited), auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, 18-inch alloy wheels (vs 17-inch ones in the Limited) and electrically adjustable seats for both driver and front passenger. Engine options will stay unchanged with a 2.0-litre diesel motor and a 1.4-litre petrol under the hood. You’d still have to make do with a 6-speed manual transmission if you are opting for the diesel, while the petrol can be had with the automatic.

Having that glass roof and other thingamajigs won’t come cheap for sure. Expect to cough up around Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 2 lakh more than the Limited variant, which costs Rs 20.36 lakh for the Limited (O) 4x2 diesel and Rs 21.35 for the Limited (O) 4x4 variant.

On its website, Jeep India has also listed a Compass Black Pack Edition. There’s no sunroof here but there’s a generous dose of black all around - the alloys, ORVMs and interiors. Just like the Jeep Compass Bedrock, the Black Pack is being offered as an accessory package on the Limited (O) variant. You can have your Compass all black for an additional Rs 15,000 to Rs 25,000 over the Limited (O)’s prices.

But if you are willing to stretch your wait for a Compass longer and want something more hardcore, then there’s a Trailhawk version coming early 2019. Although it was supposed to be launched this year, Jeep has deferred the Trailhawk’s launch, possibly in a bid to have its diesel engine BSVI ready. The Trailhawk will sit 20mm higher than the regular Compass and have plenty of visual differentiators such as revised bumpers, a blacked-out roof, matte black decal on the hood, red tow hooks, 17-inch machined alloys and additional underbody skid plates. It will employ Jeep’s Active Drive Low 4x4 system with a Rock mode added to its four-wheel-drive selector aside from Auto, Snow and Mud. The Trailhawk will also mark the debut of Jeep’s much-anticipated 9-speed automatic transmission in the diesel spec. Fine, but what about the all-important sunroof? Relax, that’ll be there too.
