Toyota Fortuner is one of the most popular luxury SUVs in the country. It has been in the country for a while – just over a decade now – and the new generation Fortuner recently got an update and the same will be launched in the Indian market. Here we have a video that shows a Toyota owner who sold his Fortuner and bought a brand new Tata Hexa. Why did he do it? Let’s have a look at the video to find out.
The video has been uploaded by AutoTorque India – About cars & travelling on their youtube channel. The video starts with a small walkaround of the Tata Hexa. The owner , Rajat has bought the XT 4×2 variant of Hexa. It is the top-end variant of the 4×2 Hexa available with a manual transmission. The video then shows the owner explaining the why he chose Tata Hexa over Fortuner. Toyota Fortuner that Rajat owned, belonged to the older generation and the new generation that we currently have in the market is extremely expensive.
He was looking for a seven seater SUV without burning a hole in his pocket. Hexa was one such option that was available as an affordable option in his budget. He even considered Toyota Innova Crysta before finalising Tata Hexa but, the Innova Crysta were again very expensive in comparison. The Tata Hexa was only car that was available as value for money option in that price range. Tata Hexa also offers a long list of features and also fits his budget. The owner is quite happy with the car.
Tata has currently stopped the production of Hexa due to the new BS6 emission norms. Tata had showcased the BS6 version of Hexa at the Auto Expo earlier this year. Tata will soon be launching the BS6 version of the Hexa in the market. Recently, the BS6 4×4 version of Hexa was spotted testing on our roads. Tata Hexa BS6 will be available with a 2.2 litre VARICOR diesel engine that generates 156 Ps and 400 Nm of peak torque. The BS4 version returns a maximum fuel efficiency of 17.6 kmpl which is good for an MUV of this size. The BS6 version of the Hexa is currently being tested, and is expected to be launched by the end of this year.
