Last month, Tata Motors revised the pricing of their flagship car, the Hexa. This was done so as to place it better in the company line-up after the launch of Harrier. For a few days, it was the five seater Harrier which had become the flagship SUV of the company. But soon pricing was increased by up to Rs 42k, and Hexa was once again back on top as the flagship car of Tata Motors.
Now, Tata Motors has once again given extensive update to the Hexa, so as to comfortably place it above the Harrier. 2019 Tata Hexa reaffirms its segment position with interesting new bits. New Hexa sits on stylish alloy wheels, features a dual tone roof and a Harman 7” info system with Android auto compatibility.
Dual tone roof options are available in Infinity Black and Titanium Greay. The former roof colour option is on offer with body colour options of Pearl White or Tungsten Silver. Titanium Greay roof top can be combined with three exterior paint schemes – Arizona Blue; Urban Bronze; or Sky Grey. Dual tone roof choices are limited to XT, XT 4X4, and XTA variants. The XM variants are not available with a dual tone roof.
Speaking about the new alloys – Stylized alloy wheels are available in two variants – 17” Charcoal Grey allow wheels for XT/XT 4X4; and 19” diamond cut alloys for XTA variant. Interior design alterations are limited to a new light chrome ring/bezel on info system, and air vents. Steering wheel gets a piano black bezel on the lower top of the ‘T’ in the XT variant.
Feature updates include 7” Harman info system. This new system, apart from working with Android Auto, features a multitude of options that take care of video playback, multiple apps ( ConnectNext; Emergency Assist and Trip-On; smart manual; smart remote; and park assist. The 10 speaker JBL sound system doesn’t disappoint. Fast charging is also on offer. The 7” Harman touchscreen system is now a feature across variants – XT/XT 4×4, XTA, XM/XMA, and XM+. Mood Lighting will now be single tone instead of 8 color options in XM, XMA, XM+, XT, XTA, XT 4×4.
Engine and transmission options remain same as before. 2019 Tata Hexa is powered by the same 2.2 liter Varicor 400 diesel mill which delivers 154 hp / 400 Nm. Transmission options on offer are 6 speed MT and 6 speed AT.
With top trim Hexa variants being given a small boost in the arm, current prices too are being hiked by Rs 20k. As such, Hexa XT price goes upto Rs 17,03,588 from 16,83,588. Hexa XTA now costs Rs 18,19,722, up from 17,99,722. Hexa XT 4X4 costs Rs 18,36,547, up from Rs 18,16,547.
