Tata Hexa caught in production ready avatar, looks cool
Successor to the not so successful Aria, the upcoming Tata Hexa crossover is expected to take the Tata name forward. Tata showcased the Hexa concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Based on the same, new images of the production spec Hexa crossover have just taken the internet by storm. The vehicle is very similar to the concept much to our liking and it looks ready to hit showrooms as well.
The front profile remains unchanged as compared to the concept. The mesh front grille is underlined by a brushed aluminium strip, Aria inspired headlights looks sharp, the bumper has a neat sculpted look, fog lamp enclosure looks very nice indeed, LED DRLs are placed over the fog lamps and the bonnet has muscular neat lines.
The side features door mounted ORVMs with integrated LED indicators, black body cladding, blacked-out pillars, sloping roofline towards the rear, 19-inch twin-5-spoke alloy wheels and well-designed wheel arches. At the back, the Hexa gets a nice looking taillight cluster with LED detailing, a thick brushed silver slat running between the taillights and a very stylish bumper that features chrome exhausts at both the sides, brushed silver skid plate, rear reflectors and tail fog lamps as well.
The cabin is a 6-seater with captain seats in the second row. The overall theme gets a dual-tone layout finished in beige and black colours. Dashboard design is completely new unlike any other car from the same stable and comes with a touchscreen infotainment system. Other features include a twin-pod instrument cluster with a central LCD MID, automatic climate control, ambient LED lights, air vents for the second and third row passengers, leather upholstery, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers and a similar steering wheel which is also seen on the Zest and Bolt.
Safety features are good as well including the likes of 6 airbags, ABS, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), and Terrain Response System which is also seen on Land Rovers. On the mechanical front, it should derive power from the same 2.2-litre diesel mill which also powers the Safari Storme and Aria. Power could be transferred to all four wheels through a 5-speed manual or a whole new 6-speed automatic gearbox.
