Tata Hexa, the premium SUV from the Indian automakers comes as a replacement to the Aria. The SUV has been built with Tata’s new design language – HorizonNext. Moreover, the build, quality and equipment on the Hexa matches modern benchmarks.
In terms of dimensions, the Hexa measures 4,764mm in length, 1,895mm in length and 1,780mm in height. The vehicle has a long wheelbase of 2,850mm. The car's fascia boasts of newly designed projector headlamps, a honeycomb grille and new bumper with fog lamps. The horizontal chrome slat under the grille extends towards the headlamps and the honeycomb pattern can also be seen on the front chin.
As for the sides, the newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels can be seen, while the automatic version can be had with diamond-cut alloy wheels. Though the overall design is similar to the Aria, the Hexa gets a sporty design language which is continued at the rear as well. The rear bumper, with dual exhaust tips, gets a dual-tone paint scheme with a new shape for the reflectors. The tail lamps are horizontal and come with LED units. A new spoiler can also be seen at the back.
Tata Hexa gets an all-black interior with silver coloured accents to give the interior a premium feel. The SUV now gets Next-Gen technology 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto connectivity across all variants.
The vehicle gets automatic climate control with a separate zone AC for the rear and third row passengers. The cabin is roomy and the third row allows adults to sit comfortably. The top-spec car gets leather upholstery, steering mounted controls for the infotainment system, electrically adjustable and retractable outside rear view mirrors. The audio system gets a gets a touchscreen display with USB, AUX and Bluetooth connectivity. On the safety front, it will get two airbags as standard and six airbags for the top trims. Driver aids like ABS with EBD and ESP will be available. The Hexa also gets driving modes where you can choose between Comfort, Dynamic and Rough Road modes or just leave it in Auto for it to choose the optimum option.
Under the hood, you will have the Varicor 400 – a 2.2-litre turbocharged four cylinder diesel engine – that develops 154bhp of power and 400Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as well as a six-speed torque converter automatic. It also gets an all-wheel drive system but it is only restricted to the manual gearbox. The entry level XE trim gets the Varicor 320 engine with 148bhp of power and 320Nm of torque mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
The Hexa competes head to head against the Mahindra XUV500. If you do not need a seven-seater, you could also opt for a Hyundai Creta and save a bit and if you want more power, the Toyota Innova is not too far away up the price ladder.
