According to a report on CarToq, the forthcoming Tata Hexa will undercut the Mahindra XUV500 and the Toyota Innova Crysta on price. The publication reports that the top-end Tata Hexa – Tata Hexa XT 4×4 MT – will cost INR 17.49 lakhs, ex-Showroom, Pune whereas the top-end Tata Hexa automatic variant – Tata Hexa XTA 4×2 AT – will cost INR 17.44 lakhs, ex-Showroom, Pune.
In comparison, the Mahindra XUV500 W10 AWD MT is priced at INR 17.5 lakhs, whereas the XUV500 W10 AWD AT costs INR 18.53 lakhs, ex-Showroom, Pune. It should be noted that the XUV500’s top-end AT trim still gets the 4×4 system whereas the Hexa’s AT variant is a 2WD only, according to the report.
While the price difference may be considered negligible when comparing with the XUV500, the cost difference is significant in comparison to the Innova Crysta. The top-end Toyota Innova Crysta 2.4 ZX MT costs INR 20.58 lakhs and the Innova Crysta 2.8 ZX AT comes in at INR 21.95 lakhs, ex-Showroom, Pune.
The Tata Hexa, as reported earlier, will have its market launch in January 2017 though bookings are expected to begin in the coming weeks. It will be powered by a 2.2-liter VariCOR four-cylinder diesel engine capable of 156 PS and 400 Nm of torque. Both, 6- and 7-seat variants are expected to be on offer.
