Tata Motors has hiked the prices of the Hexa offering in the Indian market. The Tata Hexa prices have increased by up to Rs 42,000 for the base trims while the higher trims receive a hike of Rs 19,505.
The Tata Hexa previously has a starting price of Rs 12.57 lakh, which has now been increased to Rs 12.99 lakh. The top-spec XT trim, on the other hand, is now priced at Rs 18.16 lakh from the previous Rs 17.97 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
The reason for the hike in prices is mainly the positioning of the model in the company's product lineup. With the hike in prices, the Tata Hexa is now priced higher than the recently launched Harrier SUV — read our detailed review to know more about the Harrier SUV. This also makes the Hexa the flagship offering from the brand.
Tata Motors wants to position the seven-seater Hexa between the five-seater Harrier and the upcoming seven-seater H7X. The Tata Hexa will continue to be available in four trims: XE, XM, XM+ and XT. Among these trims, the Hexa is further available in a range of variants — XE, XM/XMA, XM+, XT/XTA and XT4x4 grade.
All variants of the Tata Hexa are available in the standard seven-seater option. However, the top-spec XT/XTA and the XT 4x4 comes in an optional six-seater version as well.
In terms of mechanicals, the Tata Hexa continues to be powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine with two states-of-tune: Varicor 320 and Varicor 400. The Varicor 320 produces 150bhp and 320Nm of torque while the Varicor 400 churns out 156bhp and 400Nm of torque.
The engine comes mated to a choice of either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The 4x4 AWD option is available with just the Varicor 400 and a manual gearbox combination.
Tata Motors offers a number of features on the Hexa SUV. Some of them include smoked projector headlamps, LED DRL, 19-inch alloy wheels, ambient mood lighting, 10-speaker JBL sound system, cruise control, ABS with EBD, multiple airbags, 8-way adjustable driver's seat, Hill Hold Assist (HHA) and Hill Descent Control (HDC), traction control system and a host of others.
