Hexa is currently the flagship model from Tata Motors until the launch of Gravitas. It is a butch looking SUV that has enough road presence and is fairly equipped in terms of features and comfort. There are not many examples of modified Hexa’s in the country and here we have one such Hexa that is modified by Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore based Kit Up Automotive which could be every Indian politician dream ride during elections.
The video has been uploaded by Car Accessories Modified on their youtube channel. The modifications are done to the base XE trim of Hexa. Coming to the front of the car, main attraction or addition at the front is the huge bull bar with huge Hella fog lamps on them. As it is the base XE trim, XE does not get DRLs or fog lamps that normally come with higher trims. The bull bars also have multiple spikes sticking out to pin flag of the political party of parties.
On the side everything remains in stock condition. Even the steel rims are not changed for alloys. All it gets is a side step for easy ingress and egress from the vehicle. Normally, Hexa is a 6-seater SUV, but here the Hexa is a 5-seater. The last row of seats have been removed to create more space on the inside. The second row of seats are also moved to rear so that there is more floor available.
The Hexa politician edition gets a huge sunroof which is normally not there on standard Hexa. The sunroof is so huge that politicians can stick out comfortably while standing inside the car during election campaigns. On the top it gets a roof rail surrounding the sunroof with spot lights facing inside. There are even four megaphones placed on the top for all the speeches he/she will make during the campaigns. Rear of the car is untouched and is in stock condition.
There were rumours before that Gravitas will replace Hexa this year, but according to reports this won’t be happening and Hexa will get a BS6 compliant diesel engine. The new Hexa will be powered by the same 2.2 litre Varicor engine producing 148 bhp and 320 Nm in lower variants and 154 bhp and 400 Nm peak torque in higher variants. This engine will meet the new BS6 emission norms. The price BS6 version Hexa will be more than that of the current BS4 versions.
