When Tata decided to improve on the Aria platform with the Hexa, they really pulled out all the stops. Tata’s flagship SUV is a big, powerful, head-turner of a vehicle. It is built for performance and has a truly commanding road presence. The Hexa’s very premium-feel cabin and best in class features tell us that Tata is an Indian company that has truly gone global.
Hexa – power packed and feature loaded
This is a heavy, powerful vehicle that is a meant for all terrains; even bumpy roads mean a smooth, comfy ride. The rugged powertrain delivers a lot of power on city roads as well as the highway. The automatic versions are especially comfortable for Indian city roads with their stop and go traffic. The vehicle is big and high but is agile and responsive enough even for narrow and crowded Indian roads.
The cabin is very spacious; with sufficient leg room and comfortable head room as well in each of the seat rows; perhaps the best among its competitors. There are options of captain seats or a three seater bench in the middle row. The multiple powerful ac vents keep even the occupants of the last row comfortably cool. The car has a lot of thoughtful little touches such as the cooled glove compartment, multiple charging points, cup holders, handles etc.
