When the Tata Motors launched the Harrier, for a starting price of INR 12.69 lakh*, the Hexa’s prices started at INR 12.57 lakh*. Soon after, it increased the latter’s prices making it the flagship model again.
Previously, as seen in the image above, Tata Motors was selling the Hexa at INR 12,57,252-17,97,043*. Now, the prices range from INR 12,99,000-18,16,548*. The motive behind the hike seems to be the very positioning of the Hexa, with a plan to ensure that it is seen as a product priced between the Harrier and the H7X in the future.
The most basic grade sees the biggest hike, of INR 41,748*. The rest of the range sees a uniform hike of INR 19,505*. The range has remained as is. XE, XM/XMA, XM+ and XT/XTA/XTA4X4 are the equipment lines. 7-seat configuration is standard, but there is a 6-seat option for customers selecting the XT/XTA/XT4X4 grade.
Smoked projector headlamps, LED DRLs, 19-inch alloy wheels, Benecke-Kaliko upholstery, ambient mood lighting (8 colours), 10-speaker JBL sound system, 8-way adjustable driver’s seat and cruise control are some of the main features of the Tata Hexa.
The Tata Hexa is available with the Varicor 320 and Varicor 400 2.2-litre diesel engines. The Varicor 320 engine produces 150 PS and 320 Nm of torque whereas the Varicor 400 develops 156 PS and 400 Nm of torque. 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic are the transmission choices. A Borg Warner-made AWD system is available only upon selecting the Varicor 400 engine and the 6-speed manual transmission.
While the Tata Harrier is a lifestyle SUV, the Tata Hexa is a family-oriented crossover. Tata Motors should likely continue selling the latter even after launching the Tata H7X, offering it as a relatively more affordable three-row SUV.
