Tata Hexa

Tata Motors launched the Hexa at a starting price of Rs 11.99 lakh, which was revised to Rs 10.96 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi) post the implementation of GST. Tata is betting high on this crossover as it takes on the Mahindra XUV500 and the Jeep Compass as its primary competitors, while a few variants also go up against the Innova Crysta. The Hexa is available in three variants – XE, XM and XT – which are further available in different drivetrain options such as automatic (XMA, XTA) and four-wheel-drive (XT 4x4), making a tally of six variants. Here's the variant-wise price list:

Variant Prices (ex-showroom Delhi)
XE 4x2 MT Rs 10.96 lakh
XM 4x2 MT Rs 12.81 lakh
XMA 4x2 AT Rs 13.91 lakh
XT 4x2 MT Rs 15.04 lakh
XTA 4x2 AT Rs 16.13 lakh
XT 4x4 MT Rs 16.24 lakh

Tata Hexa


The Tata Hexa XE is the entry-level variant in the line-up. It is decently loaded, but like most of the base models, cost-cutting (inside and outside) is relatively evident. The XE doesn’t come with any sort of chrome appliques to its exterior and the ORVMs and door handles are not body coloured.  

  • Apart from standard features, it comes with fabric upholstery and soft-touch dashboard with ‘Hexa’ branding
  • Doesn’t feature the new twin-pod instrument panel like the higher trims and perhaps will feature the Aria’s instrument cluster. It has a monochrome MID (multi information display), which displays average and instantaneous fuel efficiencies, distance-to-empty, average speed, outside temperature and door ajar warning
  • Rides on 235/70 cross-section R16 tyres on steel wheels

XM and XMA 

The XM is the second model in its line-up and comes with two drivetrain options – manual (XM) and automatic (XMA). Apart from the additional goodies, it carries the XE’s standard features. 

Tata Hexa

  • Adds a little bit of chrome (inside-outside) compared to the XE, such as on the grille, gear-shift knob and on the twin-pod instrument cluster
  • Comes with body coloured ORVMs and door handles
  • The XM offers Super Drive Modes  – Auto, Comfort and Rough Road (Dynamic is only available on the top-of-the-line XT and XT 4x4) 

Tata Hexa

  • The twin-pod instrument cluster is offered with coloured MID screen and displays the current driving mode, gear shift indicator and service reminders along with all the information available in the XE’s unit

  • Features a 5.0-inch touch-based ConnectNext system with eight-speaker setup (four speakers and four tweeters) and additionally offers support for reverse parking sensors, USB/SD card input for video playback and image viewer, voice command recognition and SMS read-out

  • Comes with customizable multi-coloured ambient lighting
