Tata Hexa Launched At Rs 11.99 Lakh Ex-showroom Delhi

Tata Hexa

Hexa, the long-awaited MPV from Tata, has been launched in India at a starting price of Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The MPV was first showcased as a concept at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. Tata has already been accepting booking for the Hexa since November last year. Based on Tata's new 'Impact' design language, the Hexa is the second vehicle to carry the new direction in design after the Tiago.

Tata Hexa

Looking at the Hexa, the UV does remind one of the Aria crossover which has been on Tata's product portfolio for a few years now. The company has reworked its idea for its UV offering by leaving behind the typical Tata look for a more modern and attractive design. The Hexa carries a wide and aggressive stance which has been merged well with the profile of the car. It's only when viewed from the sides do you see the hints of the Aria. The UV features smoked projector headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs) mounted on the front bumper and LED brake lamps at the rear. Other design highlights include plastic cladding with hexagonal elements around the vehicle, 19-inch alloy wheels, and chrome accents to give the Hexa the premium look.

Tata Hexa: Engine Bay

Under the hood, the all-new Hexa comes with a diesel engine in two states of tune. The engine is a 2.2-litre Varicor, 4-cylinder, turbocharged mill that also does duty on the Safari Varicor 400. For the base XE variant, the engine is tuned to produce 150PS of max power and 320Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Apart from the XE, all the other variants andndash; XM, XMA, XT, XTA and XT 4x4 (for detailed prices scroll to the bottom of the page) get a slightly tweaked motor that develops 156PS of max power with an impressive 400Nm of torque. For transmission duties, the XMA and XTA come with a 6-speed auto gearbox while the XM, XT and XT 4x4 come with a 6-speed manual unit. The XE on the other hand is the only variant to get a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Tata Hexa: Interiors

In term of equipment, the Hexa comes packed to the brim with features that are almost never ending. To begin with, even the base XE variant of the Hexa comes with impressive equipment such as dual airbags, ABS and EBD, disc brakes for all wheels, all four power windows, manual AC with rear vents for all three rows, 12V power sockets on the front two rows, cooled upper glovebox, 6-speaker sound system with ConnectNext tech, projector headlights and LED taillights. Yes, that is quite a lot and the list just keeps on growing with the XM and XMA variants that receive rear parking sensors, heated wing mirrors, Harman touchscreen infotainment system with voice recognition, ambient lighting and an 8-speaker sound system. While both variants get super drive modes, the XMA get additional hill hold control and sports mode.

Now coming to the top-spec variant andndash; XT, XTA and the XT 4x4. Equipped with the exhaustive feature list present in the lower variants, these three trims of the Hexa come with automatic climate control, touchscreen infotainment system coupled with a JBL 10 speaker sound system, 19-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, chrome accents on the exterior and fog lamps accompanied by daytime running lights. The XT 4x4 is the only variant of the Hexa that comes with a 4WD (Four Wheel Drive) system. For customer who wishes to further customise their Hexa, one can choose from separate accessories list or opt for any one of the three pre-designed kits, namely andndash; Tuff, Luxe and Expedition.

On the competition front, the newly launched Tata Hexa will have to battle it out against the likes of the Toyota Innova Crysta and Mahindra XUV 500.

Detailed Pricing (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi)

XE - 11.99 lakh

XM / XMA - 13.85 lakh / 15.05 lakh

Jehan Successfully Defends Lady Wigram Trophy

Jehan defends Lady Wigram Trophy

Mumbai-based racer Jehan Daruvala will be keeping the Lady Wigram Trophy for the second consecutive year after his win at Ruapuna Park, Christchurch, New Zealand. The teenager is the only racer to successfully defend the title, of a competition that is counted among the most prestigious races in New Zealand, since 1993.

The Lady Wigram Trophy race was the third race of the weekend and thanks to the free practice results, Jehan started from the pole position. Utilising the empty track ahead of him, he quickly pulled away from the rest of the grid, gaining a good lead of three seconds over the nearest car chasing him. The race soon witnessed a couple of crashes, for which the safety car had to be called on two occasions. Meanwhile, Jehan maintained his leading spot until the race was red flagged and suspended. When the race started again, Jehan was able to take the lead from the very start and maintained it until the chequered flag. He was followed by British racer Enaam Ahmed and Pedro Piquet on second and third, respectively.

Apart from the Lady Wigram Trophy, Jehan is also competing in the 2017 Toyota Racing Series. The first race saw him finish second behind debut driver Marcus Armstrong, who was able to make the most of the safety car situation and bag his first victory. In the second race, however, Jehan started fifth on the grid following the reverse grid arrangement. And, after a bad start, Jehan soon fell down to the eighth spot and further into the race, his car made contact with that of an overtaking racer. The contact damaged his (Jehan) car's front right wheel and he ultimately had to retire in the 15 lapped race. Thomas Randle, who currently leads the Toyota Racing Series, grabbed the top spot in this race.

After wining the third race

Commenting on his performance, Jehan said, "Race 2 was unfortunate after I was hit and had to retire. I am happy I could keep my focus up and managed the three restarts well, in the Lady Wigram Trophy Race. My pace was really good and the team have done a fantastic job in giving me a great car. I would really like to thank everyone who have been part of my success and most importantly I must thank Sahara Force India for their continued support."

Tata Hexa XT vs Mahindra XUV500 W10 vs Toyota Innova Crysta ZX 2.4: Spec Comparison

Hexa vs Innova Crysta vs XUV500
The Mahindra XUV500 marks its domain with its stylish SUV stance and optional all-wheel drive set-up. The Toyota Innova Crysta is an established utility vehicle that's just as popular among private owners as it is among cab companies. The Tata Hexa blurs the line between the two categories by blending the best of both worlds. Its design and dimensions complement each other to liberate a tonne of cabin space. And the four-wheel drive set-up combined with the body-on frame architecture gives it the 'go anywhere' ability.
Let's see how well it manages to punch two heavy hitters at the same time.
Dimensions comparison

Dimensions

The Hexa is longer and wider than the XUV500 and the Crysta. It also has the longest wheelbase among the trio, and beats the Crysta's by 100mm. All of these characteristics should liberate more space in the cabin, especially for taller occupants. And the third row should be quite spacious as well. The turning radius takes the biggest hit with big cars and the 5.75m rating reflects that. With a 200mm ground clearance, tackling even the tallest speed breakers should not be a problem.

Engine specifications and price

Mechanicals

The Hexa and the XUV500 come with a 2.2-litre engine, while the Innova Crysta packs a 2.4-litre unit. However, the Hexa manages to not only trump the XUV, but also the Crysta's bigger engine with the best power and torque figures. The 156PS of power is marginally more than the Innova's 150PS figure, but the 400Nm of torque is at a whole new level.

What also boosts its off-road credentials is the combination of a body-on-frame and the option of 4WD. The XUV500 is available with an AWD set-up, but its monocoque frame limits its off-roading capabilities. The Innova's body-on-frame is also capable of handling a fair deal of abuse, but lack of a 4WD set-up means all that beating can only happen on tarmac.

The Innova is also the only vehicle here with a 5-speed manual transmission, while the Indian manufacturers offer a 6-speed gearbox.

Feature list comparo

Features

The battle of the features starts off with the safety kit, and the Innova is quick to get off the mark by offering knee airbag for the driver as standard equipment. The XUV500 and Hexa don't have it even as an option. However, the stopping power is stronger in the Indian offerings here, as they come with disc brakes on all four corners.

The XUV goes further and provides a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and a cornering light, while Hexa gets a defogger for the outside rear-view mirror.

When it comes to comfort and convenience, the Hexa appears to be missing out on quite a bit of kit. There's no power-adjustable driver seat, push button start, or rake adjustment for the steering, and the touchscreen is also smaller than the phones we carry in our pockets. It does make up for the tiny infotainment screen with the JBL-powered 10-speaker music system that can get the party started anywhere.

The XUV again presents a great case for itself by offering a power sunroof without making any glaring omissions in the features department.

Tata Hexa features the longest wheelbase among the three

Verdict

The Tata Hexa is a capable product that doesn't rely on fancy electronics to make it desirable. Missing features like push button start, telescopic steering and manual seat adjustment hint at a lower price tag. Tata Motors is banking on the car's ability to challenge two segment leaders as well as an attractive price tag to make the Hexa a success.

Looking back at the Tiago's exceptionally value-for-money sticker price, it is safe to say that the Hexa won't be any different. If priced well, it will have the power to make the XUV500 and the Innova Crysta appear seriously overpriced.

2017 Nissan Sunny Launched In India At Rs 7.91 Lakh

2017 Nissan Sunny

Nissan India has launched the 2017 model year Sunny in India. The car is one of the most successful nameplates from the Japanese carmaker in India. The 2017 model year car has been equipped with some new features but will be sold without any price increase. The prices start from Rs 7.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

You can now buy the Sunny in an all-new Sandstone Brown paint. Nissan has also added chrome door handles to make the car look more premium. On the inside, owners can opt for the optional all-black interior with fabric seats. As far as safety features are concerned, the Sunny offers ABS, EBD and brake assist with a driver airbag on all variants up to XV D trim. In XV D trim, dual front airbags are offered, with driver, passenger and side airbags offered in the top-of-the-line XV S trim. Among other features is a 2-DIN infotainment unit with Bluetooth and AUX In, keyless entry with push button start/stop and rear parking camera with sensors.

The new interior of the 2017 Nissan Sunny

The car comes with a choice of a petrol and a diesel engine. In the petrol motor is a four-cylinder HR15 unit which displaces 1.5 litres and makes 99PS of max power and 134Nm of peak torque. The diesel motor is a K9K dCi four-cylinder engine that also displaces 1.5 litres and makes 86PS of max power and 200Nm of peak torque. The Sunny is available with either a five-speed manual (both petrol and diesel) or a CVT (petrol only) transmission.

As to how it stacks against its rivals, at 4,455mm, only the Ciaz (4,490mm) is longer than the Sunny. In terms of height, the Sunny is the tallest in its segment at 1,515mm. In terms of wheelbase, it is second only to the Ciaz at 2,600mm as against Maruti Suzuki car's 2,650mm. All in all, it comes with decent levels of equipment and has frugal four-cylinder motors especially the diesel. It also offers more legroom and headroom than almost all rivals and does not come at a premium either. Now, if only Nissan could offer it with a better infotainment system than the current 2-DIN it has in the car, perhaps that would make it more competitive against its chief rival, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

Tata Hexa: Launching Tomorrow

Tata Hexa Launching Tomorrow

Tata is set to launch its all-new flagship Hexa in India tomorrow and was first showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. Tata is expected to price the Hexa in the Rs 12 - 18 lakh price range. This pits it squarely against the Mahindra XUV500 and the Toyota Innova Crysta powered by the smaller 2.4-litre diesel motor.

With the Hexa, Tata wants to carry forward the good sentiment created by the Zest and the Tiago among Indian customers. It promises a lot in every department - design, quality, comfort, features, convenience and performance. The Hexa is being billed as the perfect 6/7-seater lifestyle vehicle - the words SUV/MPV are being avoided in official promotions. While we have more than a day left till the company announces the prices, let us take a quick look at what the Hexa is.

Tata Hexa

The Hexa is a handsome looking vehicle - though based on the Aria, Tata claims that every panel on the outside has been changed. The old 'soft' Tata look has been replaced with a more macho design. The front is aggressive and the rear is squared-off for a wide stance; hints of the Aria only show up when the Hexa is viewed from the side. LED DRLs on the front bumper and LED brake lamps, hexagonal elements all around, plastic cladding, 19-inch alloy wheels and chrome elements add to the premium look.

Hexa side profile

The Hexa will be one of the biggest vehicles in its class when launched and its three rows of seats can accommodate 6/7 people in comfort. It is 53mm longer than its main rival, the Toyota Innova Crysta, 73mm wider and has a 100mm longer wheelbase which should ideally make it more spacious as well. Tata has also taken a lot of effort to make the cabin look and feel special. The predominantly black interior is peppered with soft-touch materials; the plush seats get contrast stitching; there are A/C vents for all rows of seating; and there is a host of features to keep the occupants happy.

Tata Hexa cabin

The 5-inch touchscreen infotainment screen with smartphone connectivity, the 10-speaker JBL surround system, Tata's smartphone apps which can be used to control the Hexa's features or share a common music playlist, ambient lighting with changeable colours, etc. add to the wow factor inside.

The engine comes in two states of tune

Powering the Hexa is a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel motor. In the base 'XE' variant, this motor is tuned to develop 150PS of maximum power and 320Nm of peak torque. In all the other variants the 'VARICOR 400' engine develops 156PS of maximum power and 400Nm of peak torque. Three transmission options are available - a 5-speed manual (in the base XE MT), a 6-speed manual (XM and XT) and an all-new 6-speed automatic (XMA and XTA). While most variants are rear-wheel driven, the top-of-the-line XT variant is also offered with an intelligent AWD system.

Tata Hexa in action

The XM and XT variants are also offered with 'Super-Drive Modes' - depending on the mode chosen, Auto, Comfort, Dynamic (only in XT) and Rough Road', the system changes the engine, throttle response, stability program and driveline characteristics (AWD system in the XT 4x4 variant). The Tata Hexa is offered with dual front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Corner Stability Control and disc brakes on all wheels as standard. Safety features offered on the top trim include front-side and curtain airbags, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Traction Control system, Hill Descent Control and Hydraulic Brake Assist.

The other SUVs/crossovers which could rival the Hexa in price also include the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster, Honda BR-V, Mahindra Scorpio, Isuzu D-Max V-Cross and the Nissan Terrano.

Renault Kwid Live For More Edition Launched ? With a Catch

The Renault Kwid Live For More Edition

In a bid to clear out the old stock, Renault has launched a 'Live For More Edition' with the 2016 model year units of the Kwid. This special edition features cosmetic changes to both the interior and exterior of the car in the form of some additional liveries and accessories. The Live For More Edition is being offered with no additional cost and can be had with all the three iterations of the car - 0.8-litre, 1.0-litre and 1.0-litre AMT.

The red highlights on the grille of Renault Kwid Live For More Edition

The Live For More Edition of the Kwid looks rather sporty with red and grey accents. On the outside, it gets red highlights on the front grille, red highlights on the wheel caps, dual-tone roof rails, a red spoiler, front offset racing stripes which all go way back to the end of the roof and body graphics on the sides. Inside, the three-spoke steering wheel gets a dual-tone cover and some contrasting highlights on the door panels.

The dual-tone roof rails on the Kwid Live For More Edition

The Renault Kwid is available with three mechanical options. It comes with either a 799cc or a 999cc petrol engine. The smaller unit develops 54PS of power and 72Nm of torque whereas the bigger one churns out 68PS of power and 91Nm of torque. The 0.8-litre engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission and claims to deliver a mileage of 25.17kmpl. The 1.0-litre engine can be had with either the five-speed manual, or an AMT automatic transmission with a first-in-class dial shifter.

The Kwid Live For More Edition gets steering wheel wrapped in a dual-tone cover

The base STD 0.8 variant of the Kwid starts at Rs 2.64 lakh and the top-end RXT 0.8 variant with driver airbag is priced at Rs 3.79 lakh. The 1.0-litre Kwid only comes with the RXT variant and prices start from Rs 3.88 lakh for the manual and Rs 4.31 lakh for the AMT (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). The Kwid competes with the Hyundai Eon and the highest selling car of the country - Maruti Suzuki Alto.

The red spoiler on the Kwid Live For More Edition

This move by Renault is directed towards enticing customers to buy the 2016 model year cars until the 2017 model hits Renault's inventory. With the added accessories, buyers, especially the younger crowd could be attracted towards the sporty look and may opt for the Live For More Edition.
