Tata Hexa India

The Hexa 7-seater SUV has been built with inputs from Tata’s design studios in India and its British subsidiary Land Rover.

In order to regain its lost market share in the Indian SUV segment, Tata Motors recently launched the Hexa 7-seater. The SUV has started off really well for the Pune-based carmaker, as total bookings for the car have already crossed 5,000 mark within a month’s time. And these are surely encouraging numbers for a car that’s priced between Rs 11.99 lakh – Rs 17.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The company has delivered 1,498 units of the Tata Hexa last month, while its closest rival – Mahindra XUV500 – has registered 2,500 unit sales in the previous month.

Interestingly, the automatic variant is more in demand accounting for more than 50 per cent of the total bookings. As a reminder, the AT unit is available on the XMA and XTA variants priced at Rs 1505 lakh and Rs 17.49 lakh respectively.

CityAround 13kmpl – 14kmpl
HighwayOver 17kmpl

Packed with a 2.2 litre VARICOR engine, the SUV returns around 13kmpl-14kmpl in city conditions and over 17kmpl on highway. Compared to other models in the UV space, Hexa delivers decent fuel economy.

Exterior Design

The Hexa 7-seater SUV is based on the company’s new IMPACT design philosophy, which we have already seen on the Tiago hatchback. Featuring large proportions and a muscular body, the 7-seater car gets contemporary styling. The company uses new elements to the exterior enhancing its visual appeal. Taking inputs from Tata Motors’ design studios in Pune, UK and Italy, Hexa sports aggressive front profile.

The front fascia looks quite aggressive, thanks to a prominent honeycomb mesh grille, flanked by the projector headlamps with LED daytime running lamps. It features a big bumper that accommodates fog lamps, wide air dam and faux skid plates. The pronounced wheel arches on the side complements its overall SUV-ish profile, besides, it also sports cladding and large 19-inch alloys. Features such as dual tone bumper, dual exhaust tips, reflectors, wraparound LED tail lamps and roof mounted spoiler complete the assertive look.

Tata Hexa Colours – Arizona Blue, Tungsten Silver, Pearl White, Platinum Silver and Sky Grey.

The Hexa carline comes with two seating configurations – 6 and 7 seats.  While the dashboard design is elementary, use of high quality material, comfortable space for occupants and a raft of features make for a snug cabin. Although, the use of chrome is a bit overboard but overall the layout looks decent. Its wider instrument cluster features rotary knob control for ambient lighting and 10-speaker infotainment system.

The SUV gets Juke App which is directly sourced from Tiago hatchback and is also gets the segment first racecar mapping system. The vehicle offers an excellent legroom and headroom space for first and second row of seats, whereas the third row is suitable only for two passengers. As for the luggage capacity, the car offers 128 litres that can be expanded to 671 litres by folding the 2nd and 3rd row seats.

    Lots of Made in India cars have failed crash tests earlier, but I hope these upcoming cars will maintain all improved safety Standard this time
    Not again they considering India as a dumping ground and not compromising on safety aspects at all.
    I’m not talking about the airbag variants and non-airbag variants only these cars must to have a body shell that can remain stable in a crash. Because buying a car for 10 lakhs -15 lakhs is not worthy if our life is in danger. We all have to understand these Car Manufacturers clarification and argument on geographic Safety Standard Difference.
    How many time we have to go with India Gate Protest Rally and raise our voice for each & every issues???

    I am using Tata cars since 1995.
    My 1st one was Sumo, 125000 km.
    Now I am using Marina since 2006.
    Just no problems 220000 km.
    My personal experience is very good.
    Tata cars need to be serviced every 6 months. Change of clutch plates at about 45000 kms. Suspension work done at approx 125000 km. Rest routine maintenance.
    As compared with cost of other brands these are affordable.
    I await for HEXA now.
    Its high time for Hexa launch. Crysta, XUV, are already launched & establishing themselves. Introducing the cars with base model then adding features for different levels is must.
    Tata’s should be fast in introducing new cars or versions.
    Be Indian Buy Indian.
