The Hexa has been on Tata's drawing board for a long time and the company has given it a whole lot of features and kept the SUV's overall looks butch, which is the USP of the Hexa as well. The Tata Hexa gets a 2.2-litre VARICOR diesel engine in two states of tune. The VARICOR 320 produces 148bhp and 320Nm and the VARICOR 400 churns out 154bhp and 400Nm. One can also opt for an automatic unit along with a 6-speed manual unit on all trims except the base XE variant.

Our first drive experience with the Tata Hexa SUV revealed that the car is spacious all around, with ample room for the second and third row passengers. Also, Tata has set a new benchmark with the fit and finish of the Hexa car. Our first drive also revealed that the automatic transmission on the Hexa is much more fun and the shifts are smoother as well. The 6-speed torque converted unit comes only with a RWD and has a 'Sport' mode which makes for aggressive upshifts and quicker downshifts as well.
