Given that the BS6 emission deadline is coming very close, certain dealerships of Tata Motors are offering a generous discount of up to INR 6 lakh on the 2018 Hexa.
Tata Motors has been busy with launches of many cars like the facelift-ed versions of the Tiago, Tigor and Nexon along with models like the Altroz and the Nexon EV. At the 2020 Auto Expo, the domestic auto manufacturer also surprised everyone by showcasing a concept model of the Sierra EV, followed by the HBX concept on which an upcoming Tata micro SUV will be based.
Tata Hexa Safari Edition showcased at Auto Expo 2020 previews a special edition that might launch very soon.
Another surprise showcase was that of the Tata Hexa Safari Edition, which basically previewed a special edition of the carmaker's current flagship. We didn't expect this model to be presented at the motor show as the Hexa has been rumoured to be on its way to discontinuation but the concept has now made us believe otherwise.
In all chances, the company would launch a special edition of the Tata Hexa based on the model showcased at the Auto Expo 2020. The Safari Edition comes with a two-tone paint scheme, new badges in the exterior and other aesthetic alterations. The standard Tata Hexa is likely to be substituted by the Gravitas, the seven-seat version of the Harrier.
The imminent discontination means that the unsold models from MY2018 stock of the Hexa is available with some dealers with a massive discount. For instance, the XM variant comes with a discount of INR 5.50 lakh and the XT manual 4x2 variant’s price goes down by INR 6 lakh. As a result, the effective ex-showroom prices for these variants turn out to be Rs 9.79 lakh and Rs 11.9 lakh, respectively, which are equal to the XMA AMT diesel and XZ Plus (O) diesel variants of the Tata Nexon. Besides, the 2019 Hexa XMA & XTA can also be purchased in all dealerships across India with a generous discount of INR 2.5 lakh but the customers will have to wait for 15 days from the booking date for the delivery of the new vehicle.
Tata Gravitas can be viewed as the spiritual successor to the Hexa
The Tata Hexa was officially launched in India in January 2017. The crossover MPV receives its power from a 2.2-litre 4-cyl inline turbo Varicor oil-burner with two states of tunes: 150 HP/320 Nm and 156 HP/400 Nm. The transmission duties are undertaken by a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter. Only the Varicor 400 version is likely to be updated to conform to the BSVI norms.
