Hexa to be the most feature-packed Tata when launched.
New spyshots from Team-BHP reader Mr.Deewan Pradhan offer a closer look at the exterior and interior of the Tata Hexa pre-production test mule that was caught testing in Sikkim. The Hexa is expected premiere at the Auto Expo 2016 on February 3.
The Tata Hexa is powered by 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 a GM-sourced 6-speed automatic will, reportedly, be offered as an option. The Hexa will also feature a 4WD system with a Drive Mode selector, as seen in the spyshot above. It offers four driving modes: Automatic, Comfort, Dynamic and Rough-Road.
What looks like a rugged version of the Tata Aria, the car was previewed by the Hexa concept at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and will rival the likes of Mahindra XUV500, 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.
Some of the headline features are ESP (electronic stability program), projector headlamps with auto function, taillamps with LED position lamps, large alloy wheels, 6-seat configuration with captain seats, leather upholstery with twin-needle stitching, mood lighting and 6 airbags.
