Tata Motors has launched the all-new Hexa MPV in India at Rs 11.99 lakh, ex-Delhi. The Hexa will be available in nine trims and with two states of tune for the 2.2-litre diesel engine.Tata says that the Hexa is based on the same hydroformed chassis that underpins the Safari. The MPV is slightly longer than the Aria which it replaces. It looks more modern than the other MPVs on offer in the market. There are projector headlamps with LED DRLs on the top variant. Tata also offers 19-inch wheels as standard on the top trims. The tail lamps too are LED.
Inside, the cabin looks similar to what we have seen in the Zest and Tiago. However, unlike the other two, the Hexa has a touchscreen infotainment system, again from Harman, complemented by 10 speakers from JBL. The instrument console is an all-new affair and shows you the instant fuel efficiency and other details.
Coming to the engine - the 150PS/320Nm motor is available only with a 5-speed manual in the base variant. The higher tuned motor (156PS/400Nm) is available with both the 6-speed auto and manual transmissions. Tata offers a 4x4 on the top manual, and this also comes with different drive modes, similar to what we have seen in Land Rover models. The Hexa comes with a 3 years/1 lakh kms warranty along with an additional 3 year/1.5 lakh km warranty on the engine. Oil change has to be done every 20,000km or 12 months, whichever is earlier. The scheduled service interval is 6 months/10,000km. We have already driven the 2017 Tata Hexa. Read our first impression report here.
