The Hexa is Tata Motors flagship vehicle and it is the finest product Tata has to offer so far.
This 7 seater has a solid build and hosts a set of premium features. Tata has priced the Hexa competitively in Nepal, to fit in the SUV segment.
After the success of Tiago, Tata hopes that Hexa will deliver similar results. With an impact design, dynamic performance, next-gen technology, and absolute comfort the Hexa are more than capable of it.
Only one variant of Tata Hexa is available in Nepal for the price of 91.55 lakhs. Urban Bronze, Arizona Blue, Sky Grey, Tungsten Silver, and Pearl White are the color options for this SUV.

Hexa is the second car to feature Tata’s ‘Impact design language’, Tiago being the first. This big 7 seater SUV has a visually appealing front end. It gets Tatas signatures honeycomb grille and air dam. The projector headlamps come with smoked effect and follow-me-home feature. The daytime running lights and fog lamps add more presence to the Hexa.
The rear end holds an antenna on top, a rear spoiler with window washers and LED taillamps. A thick chrome plate runs from one tail lamp to another with a reverse camera under it. There are 4 parking sensors on the rear bumper with 2 exhaust pipes that enhances the look. The rear view, however, feels a bit too boxy.
Side body of the Hexa holds enough plastic cladding for protection and it carries on the wheel arches. A big car needs big wheels. So, Tata gave it 19-inch alloy wheels with 5 spoke rims and MRF designed wanderer tyres.
Altogether the Hexa has got a great finishing, as we would expect of a flagship product. The paint job too looks far superior to other Tata products.
So far, the Hexa is Tatas most premium car and its interior assures that. It has all black interior with proper quality materials and nice finishing.
The spacious cabin has a functional black-themed dashboard. Within it, you will get a neat instrument panel that is backlit in white. There is a mid-screen that displays multiple and informative signs. Engine temperature, trip meter, fuel economy, gear, the outside temperature being some of them. The steering wheel of this car is adjustable for height but not telescopically.
The center fascia of the dashboard hosts your functional systems like AC vents, infotainment, climate control, and other ports. These are fitted well with chrome and piano black inserts. The touchscreen infotainment system for this big SUV is a puny 5 inch one. As if to make up for it, Tata have Hexa 10 JBL speakers that sound top notch. Apple carplay and Android Auto support would have been much appreciated.
To add to the 6-speed manual transmission, you get a rotary knob to switch between 4 super drive modes. Auto, Comfort, Dynamic and Rough road are the 4 driving modes that it offers. The mid screen of the instrument cluster changes color according to the drive mode you’re one.
The seats feel premium and provide good support. The driver's seat is 8-way adjustable to find the perfect driving position. High seating placement gives the driver a good view of the road. Even the second and third-row seats provide utmost comfort and space. To make the ride better, those seats also have ac vents, storage space, charging sockets, and speakers.
Other premium features include 6 airbags, rain sensing wipers, cruise control, automatic headlamps, and ambient mood lighting. For better control, you get Electronic Stability Program, Traction Control, Hill Hold, and Hill Descent Control. ABS with EBD and hydraulic brake assist also helps when using the brake.
At the heart of the Hexa is a 2.2L Varicor 400 diesel engine with a 16-valve motor. This engine is capable of developing 154 bhp of power and 400 Nm of torque. Though these figures are impressive for this SUV, it’s power-to-weight ratio is lower than its competitors due to its heavyweight.
The Hexa available in Nepal gets a 6-speed manual transmission with the AWD system. With features like traction control and cruise control, the Hexa is a comfortable drive on open roads. But testing out the 6th gear will be quite a challenge in many parts of the country.
The Super Drive modes that are integrated with this engine is the best part as it performs according to your needs. You have a choice of four different modes that can be activated by twisting the rotary knob to the desired mode.
‘Auto’ mode adapts its performance according to the road and used AWD when required. The main focus of this mode is to achieve traction and stability. It is best used for city and highway drives.
‘Comfort’ mode is similar to an eco mode that other cars offer. It drops power and torque, AWD is no longer activated. The loss of power and speed makes for better fuel economy.
If you want sharp throttle response and more speed then turn on the ‘Dynamic’ mode. Expect to get a lower mileage when driving in Dynamic. This mode also only uses rear-wheel drive but the brake reacting is sharper.
For driving on off-roads, the ‘Rough Road’ mode is best suited. This mode uses AWD to give the best performance to avoid Tyre slippage and the braking system acts accordingly.

If you are a Tata fan, but cannot wait any longer for the much awaited Harrier, then, by all means, go for Hexa. There isn't any issue with this car. It is as premium as it gets with a good performance of the tried and the tested engine.
But if there is no rush, then wait a bit longer to see what the Harrier has to offer. The Harrier, however, may be priced slightly higher than the Hexa.
