The Tata Hexa is the largest vehicle you can buy in India for under Rs. 20 lakhs. The butch crossover does have a great street presence. Here is a render that shows what the Hexa will look like if given looks similar to that of the Tata Cliffrider concept. As the render shows, the Hexa Cliffrider concept takes butch to a new level with its pick-up truck stance. There’s a twin cab apart from a loading bed at the rear. Muscular styling details on the rendered vehicle include new headlamps, a new front bumper with winch, body cladding, mud terrain tyres shod on offset, steel wheels, marker lamps for the roof and a roll bar.
The Hexa sold in India gets seven seats, and is known for great ride quality and comfortable interiors. The crossover has been doing pretty well for Tata Motors, selling about 1,000 units each month. The Hexa is powered by a 2.2-litre Varicor turbocharged diesel engine with 154 Bhp and 400 Nm. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard while a six- speed torque converter automatic gearbox is offered as an option. The Hexa is rear wheel driven as standard with a four wheel drive transfer case being offered as an option. Prices of the Hexa start from Rs. 12.48 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi, making it tremendous value for money.
The Hexa competes with vehicles, such as the Toyota Innova Crysta, the Mahindra XUV500 and the Jeep Compass in terms of pricing and positioning. It’s pitched as a butch, comfortable alternative compared to the XUV500 and Innova Crysta. The Hexa features top-quality interiors – the best you’d find on a Tata car sold in India. The vehicle continues to retain a body-on-ladder chassis, making it quite abuse-tolerant. As for key features, Tata Motors had loaded the Hexa with features ranging from six airbags and ESP to ambient lighting and air conditioning vents for all three rows of seats.
