October 24, 2016 – The Hexa SUV was unveiled by Tata Motors at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The Hexa is an all-new model that’s more of a crossover than an outright SUV. Tata Hexa launch will take place in January, 2017. The Tata Hexa price in India is expected to be around Rs 11-15 lakh. The Hexa has entered mass production at the manufacturer’s Pune facility. Test Drives of the new Hexa are expected to start next month. CLICK HERE for TATA Hexa Test Drive Review. Also, read on for new 2016 Tata Hexa Price, India launch details, specifications and mileage-
Tata has a number of new launches lined up for the Indian market. These include the Hexa, Kite 5 and Nexon compact SUV. The Hexa will be the first of these new launches. The Tata Hexa price should make it the most expensive Tata model around. It will be followed by the Tiago based compact sedan and the Nexon by early 2017.
Tata Hexa India Launch Date
|Model Name||Expected Launch Date|
|Tata Hexa Launch Date||January, 2016|
Tata Hexa launch will happen in January, 2017. Information on the launch date come from Mr. Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicles, Tata Motors. Media test drive of the Hexa will take place next week, Also, bookings could start next month. However, price announcement and deliveries will most likely commence in January, 2017. The Hexa will be a direct rival to the Mahindra XUV500 and the Toyota Innova Crysta. It is highly likely that the Hexa will become the next big thing from Tata Motors. The Hexa was on display at the Auto Expo 2016. It enthralled the show-goers with its rugged and masculine styling. Hence, the manufacturer seems to have got it right with the Hexa. Don’t be surprised to see the Hexa giving a tough time to the Mahindra XUV500.
The Hexa will also compete with the Toyota Innova Crysta. The Crysta, however, will be a more expensive offering and it is an MPV. On the other hand, the Hexa is an MPV-SUV crossover. Another possible rival could be the Honda BR-V. While much smaller and from a segment below the BR-V is also an MPV-SUV crossover. Read on for Tata Hexa Price.

|Tata Hexa XTA 4×4 AT||Rs 14.50 Lakh|
Seen above is the expected Tata Hexa price list. The Tata Hexa price will be more than that of the Safari Storme. However, its price will undercut that of the XUV500 and Innova Crysta. Hence, expect the Hexa to have a starting price of roughly Rs. 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
Here’s a look at the major rivals of the Hexa and their pricing –
|Mahindra XUV500||Mahindra Scorpio||Tata Safari Storme|
|Rs. 12-17.37 lakh||Rs. 9.33-15.05 lakh||Rs. 10.37-15.21 lakh|
|Toyota Innova Crysta||Honda BR-V||Renault Lodgy Stepway|
|Rs. 13-20 lakh||Rs. 8.5-14 lakh||Rs. 11.99-12.29 lakh|
The Hexa will cost less than the XUV500. It will also cost less than the Innova Crysta. However, it will cost slightly more than the Safari Storme. As is the case with most Tata products, it will score high on value for money. The petrol powered versions of the BR-V will be cheaper and the those of the Innova Crysta’s will be at par with the Hexa’s pricing.
Tata Hexa Mileage
We expect the Hexa to be slightly more fuel efficient than the Safari Storme. This means that the Hexa could offer a mileage of 12 KMPL in city and around 15 KMPL on the highway.

Tata Hexa Design Review – Exterior
Okay, there’s a slight resemblance to the Aria, but Tata has done enough to give the car its own unique identity. Up front, the new bonnet is much flatter and features a clam-shell design. The headlamps look sophisticated and the grille with its wide, brushed aluminium insert does enough to mask the similarities. The bumper is the main highlight here which features a wide lower air dam with brushed aluminium surrounds. The edgy, muscular fog lamp housing features LED daytime running lights resulting in a very appealing front end.
While Tata insists Hexa is an all-new model, there’s still some resemblance to the Aria in the side profile. However, the Hexa features a plastic cladding for the wheel arches. Interestingly, the cladding features a Range Rover Evoque like kink in the curve which could possibly be a hint towards a greater involvement from Land Rover engineers. The rear has been completely redone. It now features horizontal Volkswagen like tail lamps adding a much-needed dose of character to the back end, as do the dual exhausts, the faux skid plate finished in brushed aluminium, blacked out pillar, etc.
Tata Hexa Interior Design Review
The Tata Hexa features all-black interiors and one can clearly see hints of the Zest and Bolt’s dashboards inside. The centre console features a prominent touchscreen with piano black surrounds and the overall angular theme works quite well. The steering wheel has been lifted straight from the Zest featuring audio and phone controls and finished in black with silver accents. The concept showcased at Geneva featured a six-seat configuration with captain seats for the middle row. There are 12V power sockets and A/C vents for the second and third-row passengers. The cubby hole lined roof from the Aria has been ditched in favour of a much neater fabric lined roof. Occupant safety is ensured by the 6 airbags on board, Electronic Stability Control, projector beam automatic headlamps and rain sensing wipers.
The design of the production version of the Hexa is not a major departure from the concept form, on the basis of what was showcased at the Auto Expo. And if that does turn out to be the case, then the Hexa will surely be a very good looking crossover. It is likely to stir things up quite a bit in the 10-15 lacs space. Tata has clearly taken a huge leap forward with the Hexa concept. This is in continuation with what it did with the Zest and Bolt. It will be interesting to see how they position the vehicle and what the price point will be like. The Tata Hexa SUV is another promising prospect from Tata Motors and will hopefully turn out much better than the Aria. Watch this space for more.
