Ahead of its purported launch on January 18, 2017, prices and variant details of the upcoming Tata Hexa have been leaked. Spawning three grades – XE,XM and XT – and as many as 14 variants, the Hexa lineup will go on sale with *reported* prices (still unconfirmed) ranging from INR 12 lakhs – INR 18 lakhs (ex-showroom).
Tata’s flagship vehicle can be further had with either 6 or 7 seats (for each grade), with either a MT or a AT (XM and XT only), and with either a 4×2 or a 4×4 drive-train (XM and XT only). Then there are the engine options, a couple of them to be precise; both being derivatives of the 2.2L VARICOR 4-cylinder turbo diesel mill.
The base XE grade can be only had with the 320 version with 150 PS and 320 Nm of torque on tap; the engine being exclusively paired to a 5-speed MT. Higher grades get the more powerful 400 version with 156 PS and 400 Nm of torque on tap. This engine can had with either a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed AT, while a choice between a 4×2 or a 4×4 drive-train is also available in this case.
The leaked owner’s manual of the Hexa also reveals that the first service should be done at 3 months/5,000 km (whichever comes earlier), followed by subsequent service intervals at every 6 months/10,000 km. The first 3 services are complimentary.
