Tata Hexa has been discontinued in the market. However, the SUV will make a comeback by the end of this year. Let's see a long-term review of this SUV.
Tata Hexa first entered the Indian market back in 2017. Launched as the flagship model of the Tata's line-up, the SUV was discontinued earlier this year due to the implementation of the new BSVI emission norms. The good news is that Tata will replace this model with the new Hexa Safari Edition which is expected to be launched by the end of this year. Recently, a Youtuber has made a long-term review video of the Tata Hexa with the owner of the car.
Tata Hexa Long Term Review
The Tata Hexa in question has clocked the total driven distance of over 1,00,000 kms in just about two years. According to the owner of this Hexa, he has been using this car for his daily drive ever since he bought it. Usually, it takes at least four or five years for an average driver to reach 1 lakh kms mark on the odometer. However, the owner of the Hexa we have in the video here has certainly managed to cover a lot of distance in a relatively shorter span of time.
To start off, the owner has listed out some mentionable strength of the Tata Hexa. He has shared that he always fancied a Tata car. He also confirmed that he has liked the Hexa right from the first test drive. Later, he chose to purchase the XM variant which is a mid-range model. The mid-spec XM is not fully loaded with all bells and whistles as on the top-spec model. Of course, if compared it to the newer models in the current market, it is quite under-equipped. However, it still comes with a decent number of comfort goodies that ensure a pleasant driving experience.
The highlight of the Tata Hexa is not the comfort driving. Instead, it is known better for powerful performance. Moreover, Tata Hexa comes with an AWD option. It’s a shame that the MPV did not receive its well-deserved attention.
Tata Hexa is powered by a BSIV 2.2-litre Varicor diesel engine which generates a top power of 155 PS and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. For the base XE variant, this engine came in a lower state of tune, 150 PS and 320 Nm. The gearbox options include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic. This engine’s torque is the best in the segment. The high torque, added with the AWD system, becomes extremely useful when it comes to the off-roading. The off-road capabilities of the Tata Hexa have also been testified by the owner. He also notes that even though the car has passed the 1 lakh kilometre mark, it still keeps a decent fuel economy of 16 kmpl, for both city and highway driving.
Moreover, he also sings the praise for the ride and handling quality of the Tata Hexa. According to him, compared to another Mahindra Scorpio that he had, this Hexa does a much better job in this aspect. About the interior experience, the owner claims that the cabin of the Hexa is spacious and comfortable. Notably, in the second row, there are two captain seats which we usually find on cars from the above segment. As a long-time user of the car, the owner also gives a compliment for the build quality of the Tata Hexa. On the downside, the owner points out that the long wheelbase and the ladder frame chassis of the car could be a hassle sometime. Moreover, he also shows disappointment at the week headlights..
