Denying rumours about discontinuation of Hexa, Tata Motors said that the SUV will stay in the market even after the implementation of BS6 emission norms (1 April, 2020). The company is getting ready to switch its vehicles from BS4 to BS6 technology including the Hexa. The Tata Hexa, which is currently the flagship model of the company, will be positioned below the upcoming Buzzard 7-seater. The latter is scheduled to go on sale by the end of this year.
Besides upgrading it to BS6, the home-grown carmaker might also introduce a re-configured variant of the Hexa for serving fleet market. Previous reports suggest that Tata will discontinue the 1.2L Revotorq diesel engine that powers the Tiago hatchback and Tigor subcompact sedan. Tata cars with 1.5L and above diesel engines will continue to be on sale.
The company will soon introduce the Harrier with BS6-ready 170bhp, 2.0L diesel engine. The same powertrain will also be used in its 7-seater version (Buzzard). The Tata Harrier that recently received four updates based on experts and customers’ feedback, will soon get an optional sunroof as well.
Talking about Tata’s future plan, the carmaker is ready launch two important products this year – Altroz premium hatchback and Buzzard 7-seater SUV. While the former will go on sale in coming months, the latter will hit roads by the end of this year.
