Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Reported to launch in June.

A camouflaged prototype of the Tata Hexa has been photographed near Pune by Bhuvan Chowdary. The SUV is reported to launch in June 2016 replacing the Tata Aria.

The Hexa is based on the Tata Aria MPV. It was unveiled as a concept at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and its production version was presented at the Auto Expo 2016 last month. Set to go on sale in the coming months, the Tata Hexa will compete with the Mahindra XUV500 and the Ford Endeavour 2.2L Trend.
