Tata is regaining the lost momentum in the market. After the launch of the Tiago, Tata did gain significant market share. Now, the company is ready to launch the Aria’s replacement in the form of the Hexa. The prices have just been revealed through Tata’s official website and to our surprise, the Hexa is priced below its arch-rival Mahindra XUV 500 and Toyota Innova Crysta.
Cheaper than XUV 500 and Innova Crysta
The Hexa is scheduled to launch on 18th of this month. The SUV will carry a starting price tag of Rs. 12.30 lakh, ex-showroom. The vehicle will be carried out in 6 variants. The website has also revealed the on-road prices in Coimbatore, and you can check the details below.
These on-road prices make it cheaper than the Mahindra XUV 500, which starts from Rs. 12.6 lakh (ex-showroom) in Coimbatore. The automatic variant of the Hexa will be priced at Rs. 16.68 lakh, on-road, Coimbatore. The XUV 500’s cheapest automatic variant is priced at Rs. 14.84 (ex-showroom, Coimbatore).
The Toyota Innova Crysta diesel is priced starting from Rs. 14.45 lakh, ex-showroom, Coimbatore, while the cheapest diesel automatic is available at Rs. 16.64 lakh.
OK cheaper, but better?
The Hexa will be Tata’s flagship vehicle in India and will come with some never-seen-before features in the segment. The Hexa is loaded with new-age features for the comfort of the occupants as well as making the vehicle much more capable.
One of the most highlighted features about the Hexa is the multi-drive modes that are offered with the 4X4 manual model of the car. The multi-drive mode lets the users select the terrain they are driving in. The modes change the throttle sensitivity and send calculated power to the front and rear axles of the car.
The Hexa also offers a JBL 10-speaker system with their top-end variants, which is also a first-in-class feature. Other features include ABS with EBD, traction control, dual airbags as standard across all the variants, cruise control, rain sensing wiper, 8-way adjustable driver seat, heated ORVMs and much more.
The Hexa comes with smart features like AC vents in all three rows, phone charging 12V sockets in all the three rows, ambient lighting, premium seat fabric, cooled glove box and ConnectNext infotainment system that can hook with a smartphone and show navigation and other notifications from the phone.
What’s the catch?
The prices revealed are more likely to be introductory. Tata launched the Tiago with the introductory prices and then revised the prices later. The Hexa will follow the similar route. The Hexa is a very premium vehicle, and the quality of the car feels way better than the Mahindra XUV 500. It does match up to the Innova Crysta’s fit and finish too.
