Launched in early 2017, the TATA Hexa has finally arrived in Nepal after they showcased the one variant on the NADA auto show. On the occasion of the launch ceremony, TATA motors handover the 11 keys to their first customers by CEO and MD of Tata Motors, Guenter Butschek.
However, the company has launched only one variant of the crossover i.e. XT 4X4. The other variants include XE, XM, XMA, XTA and XT MT 4X4 which were left out by TATA. The premium flagship 7-seater from the TATA will cost Rs. 77.95 Lakh in Nepal and will compete with the Mahindra’s XUV 500 which has been able to win customer’s heart.
The Hexa makes a bold impression, thanks to its big size. The MPV turned SUV looks elegant and sporty as well. The chunky clamshell bonnet, upright grille (nicely detailed with hexagons) and stretched-back headlamps gels really well. The front of the Hexa is equipped with the projector headlamps with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), and fog lamps. The SUV rides on 19-inch machine-cut alloy wheels, while the rear profile comprises of wraparound LED tail lamps, integrated spoiler and dual exhausts.
The interior of Hexa also looks and feels premium. The dashboard looks solid, while certain chrome effects make the crossover look like a premium vehicle; more than its price. In fact, the SUV does come with many premium features, including touchscreen infotainment system, 10-Speaker JBL system, cruise control, Reverse Parking Camera, Automatic Headlamps (Light sensing), Rain-Sensing Wipers, 12V Power Outlets on all three rows, Smart USB charging at the second row, and the list goes on. Despite the spacious cabin inside the Tata Hexa misses out the sunroof and the push button start.
Under the hood, the Hexa comes with a 2.2-litre VARICOR diesel engine with 156PS/ 400Nm. The XT 4×4 is available with a 6-speed manual transmission and also features Super Drive Modes(Auto, Comfort, Dynamic and Rough Road) which offers the riders to choose the modes of the car as per the road condition which will enhance the ride comfort & stability over different terrains for sure.
