Tata Hexa’s Going to Ruffle XUV 500’s Feather At Rs 11.99 Lakhs
The premium SUV from Tata will have to fight off competition from Mahindra’s XUV and Toyota’s Innova Crysta.
Tata Motors has launched the much-anticipated Tata Hexa at Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Bookings for the Hexa began in November last year and since then it has gained a lot of attention. To an untrained eye, the Hexa looks very similar to the Aria crossover, which the home-grown automaker launched a few years ago.
But in truth, Tata Motors has overhauled the original recipe of the Aria from every conceivable angle to transform it into an intriguing option against its main rivals - the Mahindra XUV500 and Toyota Innova Crysta.
The Hexa is powered by a 2.2-litre Varicor diesel engine, which is available in two states of tune. The entry-level XE variant is powered by the 150PS/320Nm state of tune and the engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
All the other variants - XM, XMA, XT, XTA and XT 4x4 get the higher tune 156PS/400Nm engine and while the XMA and XTA get a 6-speed auto box, the other three get a 6-speed manual transmission.
The fully-loaded Hexa comes in three derivatives - XT, XTA and XT 4x4
