Tata Motors could be holding off the launch until more clarity on NGT diesel ban is available.

The Tata Hexa premium SUV which is slated to replace the slow selling Aria has been spotted in white color for the first time. Alongside the white colour variant, is the black colour variant which was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo as well as the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Both examples appear to be sporting the final production-spec aesthetic packages complete with smoked headlamps, glossy black grille and black alloy wheels.

The black variant seems to be sporting LED daytime running light strip in the fog lamp enclosures while the white example lacks it. The white Hexa has black wing mirror housings. It has to be said that both vehicles have a sporty and imposing road presence which should be received well by the audience.

Tata Hexa is expected to be launched later this year. The Hexa is powered by the 2.2-litre VARICOR 400 diesel engine which produces 156 PS and 400 Nm of torque when mated to a 6-speed transmission.

The SUV will lock horns with the likes of Toyota Innova Crysta and Mahindra XUV500.

To be only offered with a 2.2-liter diesel engine, it will be affected by the NGT diesel ban in NCR and Kerala. If the NGT Diesel ban gets extended to more cities, it could seriously hamper the new product’s chances of having a strong initial run.

Tata Motors could be working on a downsized version of the VARICOR engine (a few cc’s less than 2,000) like Mahindra did for the XUV500 but it is not likely to be ready before 2017.
