Tata to Launch Hexa SUV in February, 2016
It was in March this year that Tata Motors showcased its new SUV concept - Hexa. Though the company has not said much about the car yet, it has come to our knowledge that it plans to roll out the Hexa in India in February, 2016.
One look at it and one is immediately reminded of the Aria. However, considering the path Tata is taking after having launched HorizoNext, there will be a few changes.
While the overall shape may remind you of the Aria, there are certain design distinctions, like the bulge on the bonnet, which makes it look a bit muscular, although there aren't any flamboyant lines on the sides of the car. There are also the new projector head-lamps, a new honeycomb mesh front grille, newly designed fog-lamps, and a redesigned airdam.
The Hexa is based on the Aria platform and features a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder, VARICOR diesel unit that is good for 154bhp and 400Nm torque. The car is 4764mm long, 1895mm wide, 1780mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2850mm. While the showcased concept was a 6-seater, expect either 7 or may be 8 seats in the production model.
Changes to the rear include LED tail-lamps, and a new bumper in dual-tone paint scheme amongst others. Tata will launch the car at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo and it will all come down to how well the company prices the car.
