Tata’s much-awaited the Hexa SUV nears its launch in India, emerging reports indicate that the upcoming model is already getting the good response from auto lovers in the country. The Hexa, which is expected to break its cover in India on January 18, is open for bookings and the initial numbers look promising.
Tata Hexa, which is expected to be priced starting at Rs 13.8 lakh, will be offered in six variants across nine trims. A report of AutoCarIndia says that the general trend so far is showing demand for the Hexa variants with the automatic gearbox. The dealers are expecting to start the delivery of the new SUV in early February.
While some of the variants are likely to have minimal waiting period, the other may see a longer waiting period. With Tata expected to price the Hexa aggressively in the market, the SUV bookings numbers are likely to go up after the launch.
The Hexa is expected to come with the option of six and seven-seater configurations. Under the hood, the Hexa is expected to come packed with a 2.2–litre engine. While the 2.2–litre Varicor 320 engine will generate 148bhp of power at 4000rpm and 320Nm at 1700-2700rpm in the base variants of the Hexa, the varistor 400 engine will do duty in other variants of the Hexa.
The 2.2-litre engine will be tuned to generate 154bhp of power at 4,000rpm and 400Nm of torque at 1,700 to 2,700rpm.
