Tata Hexa Safari Edition will be launched by the end of this year with some minor cosmetic and mechanical updates.

Tata Motors brought an impressive line-up to the Auto Expo 2020, which included some exciting models like the Sierra concept, Altroz EV, the Gravitas, HBX concept and the automatic version of Tata Harrier. Additionally, the homegrown carmaker had given the visitors a small surprise when it showcased the Hexa Safari Edition in a production-ready format.

Tata Hexa Safari is available with a BSVI updated engine

Tata Hexa was discontinued in India a while ago owing to its inability to meet new emission norms that came into action from the start of this month. The new Hexa Safari Edition is basically the accessorized version of the old model along with an updated motor that is compliant with the new BSVI emission norms. On the other hand, all the old stock of the BSIV Hexa has been exhausted, all thanks to the massive discounts of up to Rs 6 lakh that some dealers were known to be offering. The launch of the Safari Edition is expected to happen by the end of this year.

Apart from the adoption of a new BSVI emission norm, the Tata Safari Edition will get a slightly updated exterior. It is based on the Hexa 4x4 variant but added with some new styling elements, hence, making the new version appear more rugged. It now comes with new roof rails, contrasting paint and body cladding. The showcased model features a bespoke earthly exterior colour.

The interior of the Hexa Safari will see no significant update

Changes on the inside are limited. Updates for the interior of the Tata Hexa Safari Edition include new upholstery and a Safari Edition badge located on the driver’s side. Under the hood, it is likely that the new Hexa Safari Edition will get the BSVI-updated version of the old 2.2-litre diesel engine. The 2.2-litre engine was earlier available in two states of tunes 150 PS/320 Nm and 156 PS/400 Nm. The latter was available with two transmission options - 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic. An all-wheel-drive system was optional on the manaul variant.
