The Tata Hexa, which made an appearance at the 2016 Auto Expo in production form, has made it to the streets on Mumbai. The upcoming premium crossover MPV was spotted with a proper ‘MH02’ registration and not the red plates that we are used to seeing on test mules. There are no visible ‘On Test’ stickers on the vehicle, either.
When launched the Hexa will come powered by a 2.2-liter diesel engine that makes 156 PS and 400 Nm of torque. While 6-speed manual gearbox will be standard, an optional 6-speed automatic unit will also be made available, as seen on one of the show cars at the 2016 Auto Expo.
The Hexa also gets four drive modes, projector headlamps, a 5-inch touchscreen system, an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, ESP, ABS and EBD, cruise control, etc. The company also showcased a customised version, called Hexa TUFF. A wider bodykit and black-coloured parts made the vehicle look mean. Other additions included 3D mats inside, an HUD, a TPM (Tyre Pressure Monitor), and even a cycle carrier on the outside — to emphasise on the ‘lifestyle’ aspect.
It’s expected to reach dealerships this year.
