Tata Hexa Tuff – First Look Video Review
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.
The Hexa Tuff is a personalised SUV that is marketed to be designed for “active lifestyle seekers” and off-road enthusiasts. Compared to the standard version, the Hexa Tuff has additional features such as a muscular body kit, a cycle carrier at the rear end that can hold upto three bicycles, 3D floor mats in the cabin, intelligent Head Up Display (HUD), Navigation system and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
It is to be noted that the Hexa Tuff presented at the Auto Expo had the six-speed automatic transmission that will be offered on the production version and that it did not feature the Drive Mode Selector that the production-Hexa features. The unit showcased in Geneva had the six-speed manual transmission and the Drive Mode Selector.
The Hex Tuff is powered by the same 2.2-litre VariCOR 400 diesel engine that produces 156 PS at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm at 1,700-2,700 rpm. As per a recent report, the Hexa will be launched in India in June.
