The Tata Hexa is unquestionably one of the most awaited vehicles of 2017. The buzz surrounding this MPV has been building from last year itself and we recently got to know of its official launch date: January 18th. In this article, we tell you in what trim levels the Hexa will be put on sale in India, and what features each of them will be equipped with.
This version comes with the 2.2 litre, 4 cylinder, Varicor 320 turbocharged diesel engine. It has been de-tuned to deliver 150 hp and 320 Nm of torque, coupled with a 5 speed manual gearbox. The features included in this variant are airbags for both front occupants, projector headlight clusters, electrically adjustable and retractable rear view mirrors, an infotainment system with 6 speakers, steering mounted control buttons for the audio system and a cooled glove box, amongst others.
This variant has the same engine as the lower trim level, but it delivers higher power and torque figures of 156 hp and 400 Nm respectively. Buyers can choose between a 6 speed manual and a 6 speed automatic transmission. the list of features comprise of an infotainment system with 8 speakers and support for USB, aux-in and bluetooth; ambient interior illumination, voice recognition, heated rear view mirrors, the SuperDrive multiple drive modes, a rear wash/wipe system, reverse parking sensors, and more.
This top of the line Hexa trim level has the same engine specifications as the XM variant but, its 4x2 model comes with a 6 speed automatic transmission while the 4x4 all wheel drive model gets a 6 speed manual gearbox. In addition to the features available in the lower variants, the XT comes with LED daytime running lamps, 19 inch alloys, a 10 speaker infotainment system with USB, aux-in and bluetooth; automatic projector headlights and wipers, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a rear view camera, multiple airbags that include curtain and side airbags, traction control, electronic stability programme (ESP) with roll-over mitigation, hill hold assist and hill descent control.
Tata dealerships across the nation are already accepting bookings for the vehicle with booking amounts ranging from INR 5,000 to INR 15,000. We figure that Tata Motors will price the Hexa competitively when it goes on sale in a fortnight to give it some leverage over its rivals.
