Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Expected to launch in June 2016.
IAB reader, Valia Kartigaa Prasad, has spotted the Tata Hexa testing on the Bangalore Chennai highway, ahead of its expected launch in June 2016.
The Tata Hexa made its debut in production-spec guise at the Auto Expo 2016. It is based on the outgoing Tata Aria’s platform, and measures 4,764 mm in length, 1,895 mm in width and 1,780 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,850 mm.
Compared to its predecessor, the Hexa adopts a rugged exterior design with black plastic cladding and side sills, and is equipped with projector headlamps, signature LED DRLs and dual exhaust tailpipes.
The Hexa will be the most feature-packed Tata yet, with equipment such as ESP (electronic stability program), projector headlamps with auto function, taillamps with LED position lamps, diamond-cut alloy wheels, 6-seat configuration with captain seats, infotainment system, leather upholstery with twin-needle stitching, mood lighting and 6 airbags.
Under the hood, the Tata Hexa will pack a 2.2-litre VARICOR diesel engine capable of producing 156 PS and 400 Nm of torque. It is paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a 6-speed automatic was seen in the Hexa Tuff at the Auto Expo 2016. The Hexa also features a Drive Mode selector that offers four driving modes: Automatic, Comfort, Dynamic and Rough-Road.
Rivals: Mahindra XUV500
Expected Release Date: June 2016
Expected Price: INR 10.5-15 lakhs, ex-Showroom
