Greetings from Geneva! Today at the on-going 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Tata Motors unveiled the new Hexa Crossover Concept which is based on the Tata Aria and code-named as ‘Eagle’.
The Hexa Concept showcases Tata Motors new design language.
The modern looking SUV gets a redesigned bonnet, which is flatter than the one on the Aria, a new-look Tata grille with a thick brushed aluminium lining, dark projector headlamps, restyled front bumper with a wide air dam with honeycomb patterned inserts, LED DRLs, skid plate and generous amounts of brushed aluminium surrounds.
X’mas tree tail-lamps of the Aria has been dropped to make way for modern LED ones.
The side profile gets huge 19-inch alloys, body cladding on the lower half and blackened B, C and D-Pillars. The major change at the rear is that the X’mas tree like tail-lights have been replaced by the conventionally styled LED tail-lamps. The restyled rear bumper is divided into three layers – the top-most, painted in body colour, while the second layer gets cladding and lower is brushed aluminium faux skid plate. Like the Aria, the Hexa too comes with dual exhausts.
Tweaked Aria cabin gets dual-tone beige and black colour treatment.
On the inside, the Hexa is a 6-seater SUV with captain seats in second row. The Hexa uses tweaked version of Aria’s dashboard and sports the multifunction steering wheel carried over from the Zest and Bolt. It features a touchscreen infotainment system with Android smartwatch connectivity/pairing, double barrel instrument cluster with analog speedo and tachometer, LCD Multi Function Display between the twin pot dials, centre armrest for driver, climate control and AC vents for the second and third row.
Terrain Response system for its 4WD mechanism (derived from Land Rover).
The Hexa is powered by a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder VARICOR 400 diesel engine that puts out 154 bhp and 400 Nm of torque is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, which delivers power to all-four-wheels. Other key features include ESP, LED ambient interior lighting, six airbags, automatic headlamps, daytime running lights and rain-sensing wipers.
