I sold my 2016 Creta in October 2018 and am waiting for the Jeep Compass Trailhawk. At first, I heard that the car would launch in 2018, but then I heard it would come out in February 2019. Should I wait further or should I just buy the Hyundai Tucson instead of the Trailhawk? I can’t wait beyond March for the Jeep.

AAA Unfortunately, the Trailhawk has been delayed until the end of the year because Jeep, like most other manufacturers, plan to launch their upgraded models with the latest BS-VI engines. However, the fuel to run BS-VI engines will only be available towards the end year or early next year, in advance of the new regulations kicking in by April 1, 2020 when all cars have to be sold with BS-VI engines. For a manufacture to launch a car with a BS-IV engine right now and then replace it with a BS-VI engine in less than a year is a costly exercise, which is why a lot of companies have put a lot of launches on hold.
