Tata Motors' latest offering in the MPV segment, the Hexa has been tested to its core to cope the toughest conditions that the Indian roads has to offer.
Tata Motors stated that the Hexa MPV was tested for 8,00,000kms of the distance across the three continents - Australia, Europe and Asia. Hexa can operate in temperatures ranging from -20 degree centigrade to 50 degree centigrade.
The Indian automaker also stated that the Hexa project has also involved part suppliers from USA, Austria, Germany, France, Saudi Arabia, China, South Korea and Indonesia.
Lear Corporation, who supplies seat for the luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz are also involved in this MPV project from Tata Motors.
Elaborating about its new MPV, Tata Motors stated that in initial stage the Hexa project was named as the Eagle. And the company was keen to highlight the music system of this MPV.
To make the justification to that, a team of Harman/JBL acoustics experts worked for more than 1,000 hours to set up ten speaker JBL music system with 320 Watt DSP amplifier and subwoofer.
The Tata Hexa will be available in 4x2 and 4x4 versions. The 4x4 variant is equipped with Borg Warner electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system with torque-on-demand and a Super Drive Mode with four driving modes.
The MPV is powered by 2.2-litre VariCOR diesel engine which produces 154bhp and 400Nm of torque, which will be mated to a six-speed manual and automatic gearbox. The automatic version also gets a sports mode for performance.
The booking for the Hexa will commence from November 1, 2016 onwards. Tata Motors has already launched a microsite for this MPV and customers can register by filling their details on the website.
