Tata Hexa, a premium SUV with sound off-roading capabilities, is all set to bulge up the SUV segment. The buzz this car received right from the day it was announced, or rumored, was immense. The Tata Safari or the Aria, for a fact, never received such a hype. The anticipation level has always been shooting northwards, and does in the present as well. Now it’s upon the hands of Tata Motors whether it chooses to shoulder the burden of a million anticipation and deliver top class performance, or just carry a calm demeanor and let alone the Hexa to face a similar fate that the Safari and Aria suffered.
And indeed, Tata Motors chooses to walk on the path on which it is expected to. The preparations for the launch of this SUV has been grand, the buildup has been immensely satisfying. Tata manages to set aside a positive tone before the car takes off to compete among its segment that is already being dominated by cars with purer power.
Recently, there has been revelations by the brand that Tata opts out of building a premium dealership chain for this premium SUV, unlike the Nexa by Maruti Suzuki, and focus more on the easy availability, pan India distribution and a customer relationship experience that touches the heart.
The Tata Hexa is more than just an SUV that fails to make a mark in the long run. It is indeed capable of competing against the likes of the already established Mahindra XUV 500. The Hexa, which is expected to be priced lower than the XUV 500 considering the company’s reputation, has an even more powerful engine under the bonnet that will give it an edge over its opponent. Driven by a 2.2-litre Varicor 400 diesel engine, the top trim of Tata Hexa is capable of running at a maximum power of 156 bhp at 4,000 revolutions per minute and with a peak torque of 400 Nm at 1,700 to 2,700 revolutions per minute. The number are sensationally higher than the Mahindra XUV 500, which can see a maximum power of 142 bhp at 3,750 revolutions per minute and 333 Nm at 1,600 to 2,800 revolutions per minute.
The Tata Hexa gets a longer wheelbase and an increased length making it far more comfortable with a bigger cabin area. Moreover, it also features a superior electronically adjustable driver seat and four different drive modes, which is yet elusive in the Mahindra XUV 500.
With Tata Motors taking all the necessary steps to make the Hexa a grand success and the SUV itself posing with some seriously great features, the future of this car is bright. It is even expected that Tata may receive an overwhelming response once it is launched resulting in high demand. This scenario may lead to an extended waiting period that will definitely not amuse a potential buyer.
The new Tata flagship SUV is now open for pre-booking for a minimal amount of Rs. 999 only, which is refundable on cancellation. You can pre-book the Hexa for that sum on AutoPortal, and visit any Tata dealership, through which the car will be available, along with the receipt of the pre-booking payment and get the further procedures underway. You can also opt to get your Tata Hexa delivered at your doorstep, with no waiting period whatsoever. The online pre-booking facility is available in all major cities including Delhi-NCR, Gr.
