The recently discontinued Tata Hexa could re-launch in a slightly updated form based on the Safari Edition concept showcased at the Auto Expo 2020
It's human nature to aspire for more, including better worldly goods than what one already possesses. In line with this, many of us, car owners, wish to buy vehicles that are costlier than what we already own. This Delhi man, however, seems to have bucked the trend by purchasing a Tata Hexa after selling his last-gen Toyota Fortuner. As per the owner of the flagship SUV, he had also considered going for the latest-gen Fortuner but he ended up buying the Hexa due to some reasons that he has given in the video below.
At the start of the video, the host reveals that the owner of the Tata Hexa had previously owned a Toyota Fortuner. At 12:35, the owner clarifies that he had a range of options in his mind, including the new Fortuner, Innova Crysta and Mahindra XUV500. However, the latest-gen T-Fort was slightly out of his budget and after test driving all the aforementioned vehicles, he found the Hexa to offer the maximum bang for the buck. Furthermore, he has said that the music system, seating comfort and features like ambient lighting are his favourites, while the SUV particularly impresses him with its great build quality and high crash safety.
At the recently conducted Auto Expo 2020, Tata Motors took everyone by surprise by showcasing the Hexa Safari Edition concept. While there's no exact official word on the launch of its production version, it's being said that the recently discontinued SUV would re-launch in the form of the production version of the show car. The Tata Hexa Safari Edition will feature a BSVI-compliant engine and a 4x4 system. It will also feature a styling package that will make the vehicle look a tad more rugged than the regular version. The SUV could even offer a new paint option that, in the words of the carmaker, is inspired by the 'earthy tones of the outdoors'.

The Tata Hexa used to be on sale in two engine variants, both powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine. While the lower version had 150 PS/320 Nm on offer, the higher variants offered 156 PS/400 Nm Transmission options include 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic units, while 4x4 was optional on the more powerful version.
