Late last month, Tata Motors rolled out an updated version of the Hexa, which is available with revised colour options and a new infotainment unit. The 2019 Tata Hexa is on sale at a starting price of INR 14.38 lakh* and a couple of videos show that the new model has started reaching the dealerships.
The 2019 Tata Hexa is available in five colour options and a dual-tone paint scheme for the top variants. The seven-seater SUV has even gained a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Android Auto. The new unit offers a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and is standard across all trims.
On the inside, the 2019 Tata Hexa features chrome trim around the AC vents and a piano black steering wheel bezel in the high-end trims. Interestingly, the entry-level XE trim, which received a price hike of more than INR 41,000 in January this year, has been discontinued. In all likelihood, this has been done to widen the price gap between the recently launched Harrier and the company's flagship SUV.
With the XE grade no longer available, the entry-level 2.2-litre Varicor 320 oil-burner, which produced 150 PS and 320 Nm, has also been binned. Hence, the 2019 Tata Hexa is available only with the 2.2-litre Varicor 400 diesel engine that produces 156 PS at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic unit. 4WD is available on the top-spec XT grade with the manual gearbox.
Compared to the MY2018 Tata Hexa, the updated version is up to INR 20,000 costlier. That said, On the XT-grade models have been affected by this increment, while the prices of the XM, XMA and XM+ grades have been left untouched.
