Tata's Hexa continues its testing, now in MH.

The spy shots confirm Tata’s signature mesh front grille for it new cars. The headlamps get projector units and a muscular bonnet to make it look more SUV than MPV. The wing mirrors get LED turn indicators.

Are you sure of the Roof being lowered? It looks the same to me, besides that is the one aspect that no manufacturer has ever managed to change as that would involve changes to all doors, and the entire body shell. They would have loved to lower the Storme roof if that were possible.

The Storme is much taller and one also sits higher in it, I feel the roof being lower may have been an illusion due to the higher bonnet.

It feels the same to me in the snaps earlier and the uncovered exhibition views etc.

Also the seat height and in fact the seats themselves including the plastics on the side of the frames feel the same to except for the seat pattern.

Default Camouflage SUV

Folks !! I spotted this big SUV Camouflage on Pune roads, I am a little confused which one could it be and i assume it to be one of below
1. New TOYOTA Fortuner
2. New TATA Aria

I could think of any other SUV coming out of this size, Please look at the pictures below and suggest what could it be.

Admins: Please excuse me if any rule is broken as this is my first post. Please move it to appropriate section if the section is wrong. I am trying to rotate the pictures but unsuccessful.

I spotted this one on Hinjewadi roads. It was actually huge. The stance looked like XUV(Ready to pounce) and the size could be compared to an Aria.

Thanks for the spy pictures! This is Tata's Hexa (or whatever it will be finally named), which is going to replace the Aria.

At first glance from the front, I thought this might be the new Osprey compact SUV, but then the rear profile indicates a huge, long car with three rows of seats, so it cannot be the sub-4m Osprey.

I'm quite sure it's the Hexa!

I was also thinking on the lines of new Aria, as i could see the Tata logo on wheels, could get a very clear view of it but it looked like one and wheel spokes to resembled the outgoing Aria.

1. The bonnet - the lines are from the Hexa.
2. Zoom into the wheel of the second pic. The Tata logo is there ..

Yes, It looked very much like the Tata Logo but could not get a clear view or picture of it. The driver seemed annoyed by me taking pictures on the signal and did not come near or overtake for quite sometime, since i was driving slow for the vehicle to cross me so i can get a good side profile view, he literally zipped across me and flew among the traffic, before i clicked it last on a signal.

A friend who is also a T-BHP follower sent me these pics he clicked near Kolhapur, Maharashtra last Wednesday. Is it the same vehicle? This one seems to be a higher model if its the same Tata vehicle as you could see the alloy wheels on this. Interior pics also included. Thanks to Capt.Sandhesh from Mumbai for sharing these pics.

Edit: upon close observation it seems this is Tata but its not the same vehicle. OP seems to be Aria based while this one seems to be an SUV. The door mirror of this one is different from that of the first post.

Sorry, my mistake. The door mirrors are same. Looks like the same vehicle! In the first pic, it looks like the door mirror is different, but in the second pic, its clear that its the same door mirror. Mods, please merge this post with my previous post. Just noticed the mistake and its already past the 30 mins editing window. Thanks.

Yes it is the Hexa, which is going to succeed Aria in recent future. Good catch. The Zest inspired steering could have looked better.

I believe, the original post along with subsequent responses could be merged with the already running thread. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...crossover.html (Tata Hexa @ Geneva Motor Show 2015. An Aria-based Crossover!)

Exactly! It's the same vehicle as in the first post, and the camouflage design too appears similar! Looks like a remarkable improvement over the old generation Aria and Tata will load this with all the bells and whistles as per the current market expectations.

No doubt, Tata will do a great job in terms of engineering, design, features and overall packaging, but only thing they "must" improve is their "after sales service". I have seen happy Aria owners and they have no grievance against the vehicle as such but the service experience to most of the owners has been bitter to say the least. Tata must learn or simply copy what Mahindra did when they launched the XUV 5OO. Hire more professional people, train their shop floor mechanics thoroughly and listen to customer feedback.

This is definitely the Hexa. Its much improved from the Aria days. Autocar India reviewed it for their anniversary issue and they were quite happy with the car. i'll post a link to the review.

EDIT: Couldn't find the review online, though did have it in the magazine. I only found the photo gallery..

If anybody wants, I can give the photos of the magazine I have.

Looks more like just due to different camera angle to me.

That is Hexa buddy. For sure. Not even a tiny doubt about it.

Camera angle is not that much different to create that visible difference in how overhangs appear in the camoe'd vehicle.
