It 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. The exterior comprises of black plastic cladding and side sills, projector headlamps, signature LED DRLs and dual exhaust tailpipes.
As far as equipment list is concerned, the Hexa will be the most feature-packed Tata product when launched. It comes with an ESP (electronic stability program), diamond-cut alloy wheels, optional 6-seat configuration with captain seats, Harman touchscreen infotainment system, leather upholstery with twin-needle stitching, mood lighting and 6 airbags.
Under the hood will be a 2.2L VARICOR turbodiesel engine capable of producing 156.2 hp and 400 Nm of torque. It will be paired to a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox, and an AWD system will be offered in top-end grade. A first for a Tata product is the terrain mode selector inspired by Land Rover’s ‘Terrain Response’ system.
