Tata has been a successful company without many successful cars. They gave us the world’s cheapest car and it did sell quite a lot of units, then they brought up the ranking of the Jaguar Land Rover under their name which was clearly dissolved by Ford. They also have had some successful cars such as Indigo and Indica although these cars usually are seen under the taxi tag and so are many of their cars such as Tata Venture, Tata Safari, etc. So the question lies in the fact whether or not will Tata Hexa get a Taxi tag?
Tata motors revealed the concept model of Hexa earlier this year in the Geneva Motor Show. This new car will feature a design which will serve as the stepping stones of the future Tata cars (basically SUVs and MPVs). From the pictures it can be said that the Hexa is based on Tata Aria and is not just a SUV it can be called a crossover as well. The interiors of the car will be based on their freshly introduced Tata Zest and Bolt. The car’s concept will be seen in India in the upcoming Auto Expo in Delhi and soon after the production version of this car is ready we will see the car on roads.
The car might feature the famous Varicor engine from Tata because the concept version had the same. It came with a 2.2 litre Varicor diesel engine which could churn out a maximum power of 154 BHP and a peak torque of 400 Nm. The car might have a six – speed manual or a six speed automatic transmission system. This transmission would be mated to all four wheels of the car as the car will have an all wheel drive system. To ensure the safety of the occupants, Tata will include 6 airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Projector Headlamps with LED headlights, ABS and rain sensing wipers as well.
From the looks of it, the car looks pretty good with brilliant exteriors, interiors and technical specifications. It could serve as the potential threat to many cars in the SUV segment. The main question lies in the pricing of the car which by the looks of it will be between Rs. 10 lakhs to Rs. 15 lakhs (ex – showroom price) as the car is based on Tata Aria that costs almost the same. Such a price range will invite some tough competition like Renault Duster, Ford EcoSport, Hyundai Creta, Toyota Innova and Mahindra Scorpio.
