Tata Hexa Design Look-See
Hexa looks like as it is, strong, aggressive and premium. Designers provide dual-tone bumper with some good chrome work. Large encapsulated air dyne improves both looks and engine cooling system. Strong projector headlamps and fog lamps just match the verdict of designers.
On examining it from side profile we found it gives much of MPV look then SUV. From side view you found it bit inspired by ARIA.
On rear there is 2 attention catcher. One is taillamp which is wrapped around and chrome stepped blade is the another one.
Because of 19″ inches wheel (large in segment), it has good 200 mm ground clearance. Wheels are also responsible for presenting it quite higher on ground.
Have a look of Interior
Hexa will let you feel more rich and premium from the very first look. Dashboard is well finished with the combination of leather and soft plastic. There are 2 glove boxes and 1 is chiller of them.
Lots of add-on and improvement in terms of equipments. Speedometer and touch screen has been made less reflective . Fonts in touch screen is quite brighter and esy to read.
There is a con too. Only one cup holder and small tool box is under the covered box. You will feed need for more storage area to keep you phone , glasses and other things. Only two USB Ports are there to charge -up your phone.
Overall, dashboard is loaded with equipment, but 5″ touch screen is seems bit small compare to car apperance.
Third row is there for more people if you have. But, flip the second row seat may be bit fighty but can easily pulled it back. On third row a people of 5’6″ can easily fit but tall one will feel not very comfortable. This row will bwst for kids.
About Boot Space
Hexa gives you enough boot space to carry small bags.you can expand its 671 Ltr. boot spcae by flipping its seats down. Except driver row every row can be flipped down to make more spcae for carry more luggage.
There is a con too. If you are planning to flip down second row then it will mess with central A/C console. So, it means you can’t place very heavy or large bags there.

It powers by 2.2 ltr. VARICOR diesel engine which produces 156bhp @ 4000rpm max. power and 400Nm max. torque @1700-2700 rpm. Manual variant drive quality may feel bit cumbersome at lower rpm but after 1500 rpm it pulls you quite impressively.
Even higher positioned seat for short people could not high enough, then can set steering wheel on lower position too. Don’t feel as heavy as it looks while driving but U-turn and parking will not easy on this car.
Rough Drive mode: Creeps surface very well. Ground clearance helps much on off-road. Don’t need to work on gears much and push accelerator for every contour.
Much lighter and easy in comparison to manual transmission. Quick to respond than manual and improve drive quality on highways and while over-taking.
