Wow! EcoSport is getting replaced with Hexa? Are we given the version details during booking or that can be decided later after official launch?

Not much confirmed news about bookings here in Kerala yet.

Called up Aadya motors Bangalore to enquire about booking, they told the booking opens from this month end and I was asked not to call till they advertise

Then, I called Concorde motors at Dairy Circle and they have the booking open but not sure how much is the booking amount, I was told that one of their SA will call back.

Edit: Got a call back from Aadya motors, the lady says they have the bookings open and the booking amount is 50K.

Good starting Tata for your premium offering, unless you pull up the sleeves against these kind of dealers, no matter how world class your product is, it is gonna go down the drain.

As per the dealer there is a system in place to give sequential number that will be centrally managed by Tata. They would give that receipt to me today or tomorrow. After I get that receipt from Tata, I would put the details here. The booking done now would be given preference over people who are doing later.

Not yet fully finalized. If the pricing of XMT 4X4 pricing goes above 19, then I will go with Endeavor 2.2 4X4 MT. The reason being, overall quality of Endy is much higher than Hexa. Secondly at 24L 4x4 Endy is really VFM. At the time of booking they haven't asked for the version details. They said that they would collect it soon.

Autocar says the booking amount is 5k and all models delivered in January would be 2017 manufactured cars

Quote:
Tata Motors is all-set to launch its Hexa premium crossover early next year. The carmaker has started accepting bookings for the Hexa with the booking amount set at Rs 5,000. Dealers are promising deliveries by end-January 2017. Customers are also being assured that the vehicle delivered will be a "2017 manufactured" unit

Got a call today from the Manager of Concorde Motors OMR Chennai. He said the bookings are open and the amount is Rs 11,000/-. I couldn't talk to him to get further details, since I was boarding a flight. Will meet him on Friday once I am back in Chennai. I was surprised when he also mentioned about my grouse that they had no information. Apart from this forum I have not mentioned this anywhere, which means TATA Motors is constantly monitoring our comments in this thread and that is a good sign.

Is it worth waiting for Hexa in terms of cost, reliability ? Should I take the plunge by putting my money on the initial batches ?
Purely going by the recent launches, the Tiago, Bolt and Zest did not have any teething problems. The very fact that Tata are launching this in 2017 is proof that they do not want to keep a foot wrong anywhere. With the Nexon coming up after the Hexa they do not want the Hexa casting a pale shadow on their future SUV

Also, the Hexa is based on the Aria platform and Tata have had the time to iron out the niggles on the Aria chassis and this engine also powers the Storme

Adding all the above up, I think it would be safe to invest in an early batch Hexa. Looks like there would be no nasty surprises for the early birds, also you might be able to take advantage of launch pricing

If you are looking for the Hexa, then the automatic seems to be the sweetest deal.

Just spoke to Malik Motors, Himayatnagar. They say that bookings are open and the amount is 50k. I asked them to verify as others are accepting booking amount of 11k.

To all those who are booking, please ensure that your receipt explicitly mentions 'full refund' in case of a price shocker & subsequent cancellation.

Thanks all for taking out time to respond. Now waiting for the test vehicle to arrive at the show room to take it out for a spin and see how is goes.

I would tend to agree, since the first experience in 2001 itself was real bad and then I have had friends owning Tata, Land Rover & Fiat who had not so pleasant after sales experiences at Tata.

And since the collective effort on the Hexa seems to equal all products since then, It wouldn't be surprising if this one is pretty niggle free from day one.

The XUV though should be pretty niggle free by now. If the Hexa ends up being around 5-10% better than the XUV(subjective of course), then the XUV 'could' make sense for many. But going by the overall sentiment of the reviews, the gap seems to be wider.

Having driven both Dicor and Scorp I am certain the Safari appeals to me much more. But it's the opposite for many. Guess it will end up the same for these two.
Safari is dated now, and with the JLR experience the Hexa may be relatively niggle free (fingers crossed), but yes the initial few batches may be guinea pigs which will bring out the shortcomings and niggles like those in the XUV after launch.

With Mahindra A.S.S. the relationship has been love and hate (complaints gone till Mr. Mahindra himself). Since the expiry of the extended warranty I do the maintenance myself with the help of a neighborhood mechanic but last 3 years have been issue free while the first year was a nightmare with the car spending more at the A.S.S. than with me (drove a replacement Xylo for almost 2 months).

If you feel it is up to the mark, then it's just the test drive that's between you and your Hexa! 😀
Test drive would be one of the deciding factors however the after sales service of TATA still in my opinion (based on facts) goes back to the days when they only manufactured trucks.

Update: FYI for the one's who are eager: The Sales Rep also stated that he has top end auto variant in his stockyard and I can come and check it out if I want. He said I can also drive it in his stockyard . I will not be able to visit them this week. So interested folks can visit and update us.

Yeah, the vehicles mentioned by you, dont use Dicor engines, my concern with TATA has always been their engines, having read many issues (Timing belt giving up at 30k kms, HVAC issues, turbo issues, etc) on this very same forum, turned me away from the Tata to M&M and owned scorpio for 5 good years before I sold it in August. Makes me wonder is Tata Engineering team so useless that cant fix their engine (Dicor Series) problems even after 10yrs ?

However with so much negativity around I have booked Hexa today since my only requirement is a comfortable & reliable 7 seater, I still have XUV and used Innova in my radar if Hexa doesnt turn out as expected.

Automatics have never excited me, always a manual.

Tata has got their crash test facility in-house. We got a chance to visit it personally when we had gone for an event at the time of launch of Bolt. I am sure they would have conducted crash tests for Hexa as well. But they may not disclose those videos to any public forum.

If you are looking for the crash test report from NCAP organizations, we may need to wait for it.
