It was at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year when Tata Motors introduced the Hexa concept and now they are putting the finishing touches on the production version which according to our knowledge will be out in India in February next year. As you can see from the attached images, the production-ready version appears to look just about the same as the concept and this is actually a very good thing since the design represents a major evolution compared to the Aria upon which the crossover is based.
It does have a more upscale exterior design thanks to the mesh front grille, projector-style headlights and the LED daytime running lights while the muscular hood makes it look imposing. At the same time, it has a rugged feel thanks to the plastic body cladding around the wheel arches and the side skirts while the increased ground clearance should make it a competent crossover on bumpy roads.
The back of the car hosts a pair of large taillights that extend onto the tailgate and you will also notice the aluminum-like skid plate along with a chrome finish for the dual exhaust tips. Photos of the interior cabin are not available at this point, but the aforementioned concept had an attractive two-tone finish, generously-sized touchscreen display, blue ambient lighting and a six-seater layout with captain chairs on the first two rows while the third row consisted of a split-folding bench seat.
In terms of power, the 2016 Tata Hexa will likely have a four-cylinder, 2.2-liter diesel engine with 154 bhp and 400 Nm of torque sent to the wheels through a manual gearbox as seen in the concept, but the production car will likely be offered with an automated manual transmission as well.
An official introduction of the production-ready Hexa is expected at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo at the beginning of February.
