Tata Hexa Review

The Tata Hexa has finally arrived. This was a much awaited vehicle from Tata and had created a buzz much before its launch. The Hexa is priced at INR 13.1 lakhs (on-road, New Delhi) for the base model. The Hexa was earlier shown asa a concept at Geneva Motor Show in 2015. We had the opportunity to drive this new UV for a long distance. Is it worth considering, what are the features and how good is it to drive? Will it challenge the competition? We share all the details with you. Read further.

Tata Hexa Design

Tata Hexa is based on the Tata Aria. From the side it looks identical to the Aria, but here is where the similarity ends. The fascia of the Tata Hexa looks muscular and sculpted. The clamshell bonnet, smoked out headlamps and an LED strip on the front bumper give a contemporary look. The tail lamps are horizontal and this gives it a sophisticated look. What is good about the Hexa is how rich it looks and subtle too. This UV doesn’t have an in the face kind of styling, neither too aggressive. However, it is very stylish and looks classy. The Tata Hexa does not have too much chrome on it either, yet it looks very premium. All the features are shared by the company.

Tata Hexa Interiors

The interiors carry the same story of the exterior. They are classy, neat and well put together. The black interiors stand out and this new SUV has the best Tata interiors ever. A neat dashboard with a leather wrapped steering wheel, the Tata Hexa gets a touchscreen system with 10 Harman and JBL speakers. Features include cruise control, reverse parking camera, projector headlamps and leather upholstery. In terms of safety, there is ESP, ABS with EBD, six airbags, hill assist on the top-of-the-line XT variant.

Tata Hexa interior styling

Tata Hexa is offered with six and seven seating options. In terms of space, the first two rows are extremely comfortable. The second row of seating has recline option too. The third row on the Tata Hexa has recline and the space is decent enough. For tall people, head room will be tight, else it should be fine for an average Indian built. The boot is small when all the three rows are raised.

Tata Hexa Engine

A 2.2-litre diesel engine is offered in the Tata Hexa. This comes with a 148bhp engine and 154bhp option. The first one comes with a five-speed manual and the more powerful one has two options: six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The NVH levels on the engine are fairly low. The torque of this engine is more than sufficient for daily driving. One doesn’t require too many gear shifts in the city or highway driving.

The six-speed manual feels a bit notchy. It does take some getting used too. The manual comes with four driving modes in the 4×4. These are Auto, Rough Road, Comfort and Dynamic. The Auto and Rough Road are 4×4, while the other two work on 4×2. On the other hand, the automatic transmission is fabulous. The shifts are smooth even downshifts. Put it in the Sport mode and you shall be amazed in the manner it performs. There is also the tiptronic mode that responds well.

Tata Hexa Ride and Handling

Tata vehicles have always had good ride. The Tata Hexa is the best yet. Despite the 19-inch wheels, we loved the way the UV rides. Tata Hexa has set a new benchmark in this segment for ride and handling. With such good road visibility, limited blind spots and such a responsive chassis. This feels like a nimble car that is being driven. It doesn’t feel huge at any point.

The other important aspect that makes the Tata Hexa exciting is despite its high ground clearance of 208mm, it has limited body roll. The steering wheel is responsive too. The leather wrapped one looks great to grip. This is surely, the new face of Tata products.

Tata Hexa Mileage

In terms of fuel efficiency, the Tata Hexa scores 10 km/l with the automatic in city and about 14 km/l on the highway. The manual version of the Tata Hexa will return an efficiency of 11 km/l in city and about 14.5 km/l on the highway. We haven’t driven the five-speed manual engine but the range will be between the six-speed manual and automatic.

Tata Hexa Price in India

Model Price (on-road)
Tata Hexa XE INR 13.1 lakhs
Tata Hexa XM INR 15.2 lakhs
Tata Hexa XT INR 16.5 lakhs
Tata Hexa XMA INR 17.8 lakhs
Tata Hexa XTA INR 19.1 lakhs
Tata Hexa XT 4×4 INR 19.2 lakhs

 Tata Hexa’s pricing is INR 13.1 lakhs  and goes upto INR 19.2 lakhs (on-road).  This could have been a lot more aggressive and have had brilliant pricing, somehow we reckon, it is a tad expensive. Not for the equipment, more for the brand perception.

Tata Hexa – Should you buy?

There is no reason, why you shouldn’t this. It is stylish, spacious, feature-loaded, powerful, agile and the best product in its segment. However, the pricing will be the icing on this cake. We have high hopes of this product being aggressively priced.

    Hexa to fight Innova

    This is a best effort by indian engineers in TATA motors. We hope it should give a very good fight to innova which is priced much higher than its value due to absence of good competitor.

    TATAs Best Car So Far.

    This is so far the best of the car TATAs have brought I guess. All looks very good. I specially like the dash, steering, seats, tech features, and overall outlook seems good. They should price it in the range of 11-16. If it is so, No doubt it will be a huge success.

    This time everything looks good. Waiting for the pricing only.

  6. V.Johnson Jebaraj.V says

    It is true that the pricing is very vital. TATAs must have learnt from their mistake on the pricing of ARIA. Hope the quality of plastics and the electricals of the vehicle are to a standard and better than the usual TATA cars.
