Tata Motors has put together an SUV concept in compliance with their next generation product and brand strategies. The Sport Utility Vehicle is made of the company’s latest design language debuted in the form of Zest compact sedan and Bolt hatchback, and takes parts and features from existing similar sized products, chiefly Tata Aria MPV.
Tata Hexa concept crossover is a 6-seater SUV with captain seats in second row. The car used tweaked version of Aria’s dashboard and sports features like touchscreen infotainment system with Android smartwatch connectivity / pairing, common climate control system, double barrel instrument cluster with analog speedo and tachomneter, LCD Multi Function Display between the twin pot dials, sporty diameter steering wheel similar to Zest’s / Bolt’s, centre armrest for driver, second row / rear ac vents on centre tunnel behind front armrest, third row ac vents on C-pillars, and the like.
Cup holder for third row occupants in Tata Hexa concept seems to be available in a similar fashion to Aria MPV (on the side) and the car doesn’t seem to have an array of utility / storage compartments on the ceiling like Aria does. Drive assist features are also on offer to make the SUV more functional as one, including Terrain Response System (Adaptive Suspension).
