Tata Hexa, which was expected to be replaced with the upcoming Tata Gravitas in the Indian market is expected to get a new lease of life at the 2020 Auto Expo. Tata Motors has released an official teaser image of the upcoming Tata Hexa Safari, which is expected to be a special edition vehicle showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. Not many details about the upcoming vehicle or will it be put on sale by the manufacturer. It is quite possible that Tata Motors will be showcase the vehicle and it will not enter production.
The teaser shows a big sofa with clouds of dust around it. It indicates what the upcoming vehicle will be like. The new Tata Hexa Safari edition will be a tribute to now-discontinued Tata Safari, which was once a very popular vehicle in India. The Safari offered 4X4 system, making it extremely capable and can reach the most difficult places.
Tata in the past has showcased various editions based on the Safari. There has been Ladakh Edition, Tuff Edition and more such editions based on the Safari. It seems like that the Hexa will become the platform for the upcoming editions from Tata Motors. It is also an indication that Tata will continue to sell the Hexa in the market. The Hexa will get powered by the same 2.2-litre diesel engine that powers the current version of the SUV. However, it will get a BS6 compliant update.
At the moment, the 2.2-litre engine powering the vehicle produces a maximum power of 154 Bhp and peak torque of 400 Nm for the higher-end variants of the car. It is expected to remain the same. Tata may offer slight cosmetic changes in the vehicle to keep it fresh and may launch it at the 2020 Auto Expo. However, as of now, there are not many details available about the car. Tata may remove the 4X4 variant from the Hexa since it is not very popular in the market. Also, Tata may utilise the 2.0-litre engine to power the Hexa but it cannot be confirmed because the 2.2-litre is mounted differently than the 2.0-litre Multijet engine.
Tata will showcase a slew of cars at the 2020 Auto Expo. One of the most exciting showcases by the manufacturer at the 2020 Auto Expo will the Tata H2X or the Hornbill, which will be the entry-level compact SUV from the manufacturer. The all-new H2X will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ignis, Mahindra KUV NXT and Renault Kwid in the Indian market. Tata will also showcase vehicles like the Gravitas, which will be launched in the Indian market in the coming months.
