Tata has revealed all details of the upcoming Hexa SUV at the media drive in Hyderabad. While the vehicle's bookings will begin on November 1, its launch for the Indian market will happen only in January 2017. Since we all will have to wait till next year to see the SUV on Indian roads, let’s check out these pictures of the production version of the Hexa till then.
The Hexa was first unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo. This upcoming SUV will be the carmaker's flagship and D-segment competitor in the Indian market.
The SUV sports projector headlamps, a chrome-laced fascia and nicely sculpted lines giving the SUV an aggressive look. The front bumper gets honeycomb mesh shaped accents and features LED DRLs.
A bold chrome grille is seen at the back ending in tail lamps with LED units. Then the vehicle rides on large 19-inch alloy wheels with a funky pattern.
The Hexa's cabin sports an all-black interior with silver accents on the centre console and dashboard. The steering wheel you see is similar to the one from the other Tata siblings.
The top-of-the-line Hexa comes loaded with features like climate control, JBL touch screen infotainment system with 10 speakers, eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control, six airbags etc.
Tata will offer the Hexa in six-seater as well as seven-seater options. The latter will get a bench-type seat in the second row.
The six-seater variant gets comfortable captain seats in the second row. Nonetheless, all the seats in both variants are covered with black leather that sport a contrast stitching.
To add to the premium feel and add to the luxury, the carmaker has equipped the Hexa with ambient lighting as well. It is available in different colours that can be selected through the console or an app.
Speaking of which, Tata has also come up with different apps on the smartphone, which can connect to the car's infotainment system. This gives users access to maps, music, service settings etc.
The Hexa features four driving modes - comfort, dynamic, auto mode and rough road. These modes should alter the response of the throttle and the gearbox.
The Hexa is powered by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel mill (153bhp, 400Nm), which comes mated either to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
