Attributed to modish looks, robust road presence, high capacity engines and plethora of features, Hexa has what it takes to succeed. With characters of a SUV and comfort of an MPV, the new Tata Hexa takes on the likes of Mahindra XUV500 and the new generation Toyota Innova Crysta. Although, we wish if Tata had offered an auto box on the AWD version and sliced some weight to make it lighter.
With several first & best-in-class features, great build quality and good drivability, the Tata Hexa is a great product for anyone looking for a 7-seater vehicle.
