Tata new ‘Hexa’ SUV Unveiled at 2015 Geneva Motor Show


Tata Motors, the home-grown automajor, has unveiled a new SUV concept – the Hexa at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The concept is based on the Aria platform and features a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder, VARICOR diesel unit that is good for 154bhp and 400Nm. The car is 4764mm long, 1895mm wide, 1780mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2850mm.

While the overall shape of the concept looks very similar to the existing Aria, Tata has added new projector headlamps, new honeycomb grille, newly designed fog lamps and redesigned airdam.Tata-Hexa-SUV-Concept-at-Geneva-Motor-Show

The rear too looks sportier with new LED tail-lamps, new bumper in dual-tone paint scheme, spoiler etc. The car also gets newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels.

The cabin too looks different with 6-seat configuration with captain seats, plusher leather seats with twin-needle stitching and some other new features.

Moving on to the sides, the Hexa concept does resemble the Aria a bit, and hasn’t managed to completely shrug off the MPV look. Notable design tweaks include prominent wheel arches, and a thick body cladding running along the sides, which give it the look of a crossover. While the Hexa concept’s glasshouse is also carried over from the Aria. But Tata has made major changes at the back like the floating roof which gives it a different look. The Hexa concept gets 19-inch alloy wheels that go well with its cross-over feel.

The Hexa’s rear styling is a complete departure from the Aria’s minimalistic look. Neat horizontal tail lamps are placed just below the rear glass and extend onto the hatch. A wide band of chrome strip runs across and connects the tail-lamps and even runs to the sides. The rear bumper is divided into three layers – the top-most, painted in body colour, has prominent embossed lines on the loading lip, while the lower half gets cladding and a brushed aluminium faux skid plate. Like the Aria, the Hexa also comes with dual exhausts.

Tata Motors is also showcasing a more powerful version of the Bolt at the show.
