Tata Hexa is the flagship model from Indian manufacturer which will soon be replaced by the upcoming Gravitas SUV. The Hexa is a muscular, bold looking SUV. Tata had announced that they will not be discontinuing Hexa and the SUV will be getting a BS6 compliant engine. The Hexa BS6 version was also showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year. Tata will be launching the BS6 version of Hexa in India by the end of this year. The launched is being delayed likely because of the current situation of the country. Here we have a render image that shows how the Hexa would look like if it gets a Harrier like facelift.

The basic design of the Hexa remains unchanged. The front is the place where artist has done major changes. The front of the Hexa facelift gets minor revision and looks similar to Harrier now. The Headlight has been removed from the top and it now gets a LED DRL probably a dual function light that also acts as turn indicators. The grille on the Hexa facelift render retains the older look but the bumper design sees slight tweaks here and there. The lower part of the bumper has been redesigned and the fog lamp area now hosts the new headlights like the one seen in Harrier. The split headlights have another LED light strip running between them.
Overall, the render looks neat but it looks like Hexa has lost the aggressive stance during the course of transformation. The artist has also added bigger rims and new alloy wheels with low profile tyre in the render that give it a premium touch. There is possibility that the Hexa will get a facelift in future but there are no confirmed reports on that. The upcoming BS6 version will have no changes in terms of design and will continue to get the sharp and aggressive stance.
BS6 version of Tata Hexa will be powered by the same litre VARICOR diesel engine generating 154 PS and 400 Nm of peak torque. It will be available with a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission options and Tata will also offer an AWD variant with a manual gearbox . With all these BS6 updates, the price of the upcoming Hexa is likely to go up.
