The Hexa SUV was unveiled by Tata Motors at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in its concept form following which it made its India debut at the 2016 Auto Expo. The Hexa is an all-new model that’s got a crossover-ish styling but hardware suitable for mild off-road excursions. The new Tata Hexa launch took place on January 18, 2017. Tata Hexa price in India starts at Rs. 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). At such a price point, the Hexa rivals the Mahindra XUV500.

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, chrome 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. The Hexa is surely be a very good looking crossover. It is likely to stir things up quite a bit in the 11-18 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. The Tata Hexa SUV is another promising prospect from Tata Motors and will hopefully perform much better than the Aria. Watch this space for more.
