Tata Motors had showcased the Tata Hexa Safari Edition at the Auto Expo 2020. This car was to come as the successor to the Safari that was discontinued as it could not get a BS6 update. As we progress ahead in 2020 there is no news of Tata Hexa Safari Edition. So here is an article about the things that we know about the car.
Tata Hexa BS6
The current Tata Hexa has been discontinued on the account of BS6 emission norms. The car will be launched as a BS6 compliant vehicle soon. This new BS6 Hexa Safari Edition will have a compliant diesel engine which will have higher levels of refinement. The power figures of the engine are also expected to change but there won’t be a noticeable change.

Hexa Safari Edition can not be just called a cosmetic update. The 4X4 variant of the car will get this styling package. The basic change will be the new paint pattern. There will be generous use of ocher and olive green all over the vehicle. The car will look like it has been a child of mother earth. To continue with its jungle style it will be given new roof rails. The body cladding on the vehicle will have a contrasting colour scheme to it.
Interiors will have new upholstery which will be in sync with the safari style of the car. There will also be badges of the Safari Edition at places on the dashboard and also on the Exterior. The Safari Edition of the Tata Hexa is also expected to have new Alloy wheel design.
