Tata Hexa DownTown Details are out and it suggest that the name is back after a really long time and offers even more equipment amid stiff competition
Tata has spruced Hexa with Downtown badge for leveling up comfort and it reminds of Indigo XL and 2009 Safari VX, as the company has earlier played with these two. Indigo XL was launched featuring lounge style, containing entertainment screen for the rear passengers with much more goodies and was also seen in Safari. But this upgrades didn’t work as per the expectation, as Tata was too early to introduce the package and this time it’s a perfect hit with Hexa featuring rear screens and smart infotainment system for the passengers.
The Downtown naming on Hexa clears that company has termed to serious business to their rivals XUV 5OO and Innova Crysta and Jeep Compass. The Tata Hexa Downtown Urban Edition comes with a new brown colour offering two variants ‘Absolute and Indulge’. The Absolute on the XE, XM and XMA gets brown seat covers where the Indulge XT and XTA will feature 10.1-inch Blaunpunkt infotainment system on the dash and headrest for the rear passengers while the Indulge variant gives 16-inch alloy wheels to XE, XM and XMA. The exterior of Hexa Downtown gets a Downtown badge on the side, chrome on the ORVMs and headlight. Carpet set with car care kit will be offered with wireless smart charging in the interior package.
The Tata Hexa DownTown under the hood is same as the standard Hexa with a 2.2-litre diesel engine that produces 150 HP of power and 320 Nm of torque for the XE variant and 156 HP of power and 400 Nm of torque for XM and XT. The XE trim gets a 5-speed manual gearbox while the others get a choice of either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. This time Tata has worked on the sustainability and efficiency, a learning from Hexa’s predecessor Aria. The recent launch will help to increase the sales of the Hexa as it is amid serious competition, but still holds the value card for most buyers in this segment.
