After long protracted wait, booked nano xta today.

Could be coincidence or they have told to tow this line.
Whoa, this is one hell of an explanation from TATA. Not sure whether it is the story of the dealer or the TATAs. How can TIAGO demand be dependent on the HEXA release. Are Tatas so constrained on resources that they can't handle two demands simultaneously. I don't think that is the reason.

IMO, Hexa will be produced where Aria was... Which is in Pune.
Tiago is built in Sanand.

So, There is no possible connection between these two cars with respect to capacity constraints

I checked with one of SA yesterday while getting Storme serviced, he confirmed no one have started training for Hexa. Which also indicates launch is not closer

I read an article online that Tata have again postponed the launch of the Hexa to November 2016. This fact was further confirmed by my birdie at Tata who informed that Tata indeed are considering the ban on diesel cars seriously. Hence are testing the Hexa further. I guess they are testing a smaller engine a sub 2 litre engine or smaller. But as of know it seems a November launch is somewhat believable. Eagerly waiting its launch.

Ten days back I saw two of the Hexa test mules in the More plains, Ladakh when I was on my ride there... We were travelling in the opposite direction and hence could take a better look at them

There's lot of mention on "Mayank Pareek, president of Tata Motors Passenger Car Vehicles, had told CNBC-TV18 that the Hexa would be launched in India shortly" over internet. News channels are speculating launch by September.

Was checking this forum, not update or activity on this thread, Any reliable birdie news on this?

Confirmation on what my birdies were tweeting all along - Tata Motors is indeed working on a 1.9L diesel for the Hexa for the Delhi/NCR & Kerala markets, and which will enter mass production sometime next year.

Also, the yet-to-be-launched-but-most-eagerly-awaited Tata SUV is supposedly coming with an AMT option as well.

Quote:
On the engine front, it will borrow the 2.2-litre diesel motor from its sibling Aria, churning out 154PS and 400Nm of torque. Tata Motors however has mentioned that the engine could be tuned differently to the rest of the fleet using the same engine setup. Other features expected on the Hexa include a four-wheel drive option and a multi-terrain mode inspired from the Land Rover's terrain response system. Safety features like ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) and airbags are likely to be standard on all variants.

An AMT feels out of place for a supposedly 20L product. When XUV has managed a good 6-speed Aisin Autobox which befits the price tag, Aria's AMT will most likely be seen as a cheap offering. I am not too sure how much of a premium "feel" can the AMT offer on performance.

My friend who worked in FIAT (who are supplying AMTs in India) told me that their is a reason why AMT is not used in cars abroad. As AMT will start giving problems after about 3 years of usage (due to its design and functionality) and one should always go in for a fully AT, if available. AMT is an poor man's AT afterall. The price difference, according to him, is not much between an AMT and fully AT unit (ard 3X) and AMT was used in small cars in India to keep overall costs down.

But I am perplexed why Tata decided to offer AMT instead of AT in an aspirational car like Hexa and that too when they are trying to make a comeback? They are cutting corners where they should not, it seems. Even Mahindra is offering AT in XUV which shows they understand the pulse of Indian customer better.

I was waiting for Tata Hexa launch to choose between Hexa and XUV. But with Hexa coming with AMT, the choice is a no-brainer now. I will be going in for XUV AT now.

At the Auto Expo, Tata displayed 6-speed AT version of Hexa. No reason to believe that they will launch a large SUV like Hexa with AMT

At this point it (AMT option on Hexa) looks like a speculation from somebody and I don't think we should waste our time discussing its merits and demerits. It is better to wait to hear the official confirmation.

Rather than AMT it needs AWD with AT. Plus some more power like say about 175 Bhp out of that same 2.2 engine and they get me at the start of the line. Get me Brake Hold and I would book without checking the price.

Interesting that once bitten is not shying away. Hope Tata listens to you, since they're already spending time working on the engine - an engine rather, for Delhi and Kerala.

Any specific reason for the AWD requirement? Hexa is unlikely to come with a proper off-road setup, hence the question.
