Tracking shots of the Tata Hexa Concept have emerged on the web, which provide a better look at the crossover concept outside a motor show floor.
What is basically a re-styled Tata Aria with rugged design elements, the Hexa concept was revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and previews an upcoming SUV that will rival the Mahindra XUV500, and upper variants of the Mahindra Scorpio, Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster. It measures 4,764 mm long, 1,895 mm wide, 1,780 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,850 mm.
The concept is equipped with ESP, projector headlamps with auto function and wiper, taillamps with LED position lamps, 19-inch wheels, 6-seat configuration with captain seats, LED illumination for Ambient mood lighting, luxurious leather seats with twin-needle stitching, and 6 airbags.
The Tata Hexa sources power from the familiar 2.2-liter four-cylinder VARICOR 400 diesel engine that delivers 154.2 hp at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm between 1,700 – 2,700 rpm. It is paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox, while the production-spec model will reportedly offer a GM-sourced 6-speed automatic.
