Tata Motors have launched the 2019 edition of their capable MPV, the Hexa for the Indian market. Prices for the 2019 Hexa start from INR. 12.99 lakh, with the top-trim costing INR. 18.37 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The top three variants of the MPV, namely XT, XTA and XT 4×4 cost INR. 20,000 less than their previous versions.
On the other hand, bottom variants like XE (INR. 12.99 lakh), XM (INR. 14.39 lakh), XMA (INR. 15.63 lakh) and the XM+ (INR. 15.47 lakh) come at these prices. These variants do not feature much of a change in comparison with prices of the previous models. The 2019 Hexa will carry a couple of changes from the previous model.
One such change will be a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which replaces the 5.5-inch unit seen on earlier models. Other than that, the MPV will have a new set of diamond-cut alloy wheels and a dual-tone roof option. This is on the Hexa completing its second year in the Indian market.
On occasion of that, Tata Motors have introduced a ‘Hexa Exclusive Collectors Limited Edition Coffee Table Book’. This marks the different terrains and conditions the Hexa has been endured against over its two year run. Tata Motors will hope that the Hexa will register reasonable sales numbers after the launch of the 2019 edition.
The automaker offers the Hexa is offered with engine options of a 2.2-litre Varicor 400 diesel motor and a 2.2-litre Varicor 320 diesel motor. The former makes 156 BHP of power and 400 Nm of torque. On the other hand, the latter gives 148 BHP of power and 320 Nm of torque.
These come mated either to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic one. There has been talk that the Hexa will be provided with a 2.0 litre Kryotec diesel engine, seen on the Harrier, by the end of the year. The 2019 Hexa will lock horns with the Toyota Innova Crysta and the Mahindra XUV500 in the MPV segment here.
