Tata Motors has confirmed that Hexa will make a comeback with a BS-6 compliant engine, however, we believe that it will also get a facelift, and could look like this.
Tata Hexa used to be the flagship model of the indigenous carmaker until recently. As of now, the space is occupied by the Harrier as Hexa is not on sale anymore. However, the brand has confirmed that it won’t be discontinuing the Hexa, which means the crossover could soon make a comeback with a BS-6 compliant engine. Also, while it was based on the first iteration of the Impact design language, the upcoming version could be styled as per the Impact 2.0 design language. Therefore, expect the Hexa to get a mild refresh before making its way to the showroom floors again. With the facelift, the Hexa could get a Harrier-like face, and here’s a neat rendering showcasing what this will make the upcoming model look like.
Tata Hexa with Harrier-like face based on Impact 2.0 design language looks modern.
The rendering has been created by RR Designs. It can be seen that the car retains its original silhouette. It also doesn't get any sort of change to its chassis or the body structure. The most prominent change on the Hexa here is a new front-end. In the rendering, it gets rid of those massive wrap-around headlamps and instead, gets a pair of slim LED DRLs like the Harrier. The bumper also features a revised design to house the headlamp assembly along with the foglamps. This way, Hexa gets a more modern nose, thereby giving the vehicle a fresh appeal.
Tata Motors showcased a Safari Edition of the Hexa at the 2020 Auto Expo.
The designer has also tweaked the side profile a bit. It gets a new design for the alloy wheels. This change is also expected to be seen on the Hexa facelift. Last year, Tata Motors replaced the 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels with a set of 17-inchers, which came finished in a grey colour tone. However, it would be nice to see a set of flashy 19-inchers again. The Tata Hexa used to be on sale with a 2.2L Varicor oil burner which produced 154 PS and 400 Nm. Expect the same motor to do duties, albeit, in a BS-6 compliant state. It will be offered with 2 transmission options - 6-speed MT and a 6-speed AT, to channel the power to its wheels. Also, it will retain the optional AWD variant. With all of these changes, prices of the Hexa will are expected to go up by a slight margin.
