Seems like the general consensus is quite positive, if this tweet by Gadgetwala is anything to go by:

Some extreme pushing by Twitterati, from earlier in the day:

Was comparing the dimensions of the Storme and the Hexa.

Looking at this info, and with a bit of experience with Tata SUV's, from the Sumo to the Storme, a whiff of the Aria and now looking at the features of the Hexa and feedback so far:

My suggestion to Tata Motors:

Reduce the length of the Hexa to about 4.4m and keep all else the same (of course, no 3rd row seating) - we should have an awesome SUV on hand. Something that will be just right !!

So like a Nexon?

Anyhow, I am mighty excited with all the trickling updates coming out of the media drive. I have been following this thread ever since I saw the car at the Expo. Seriously considering booking this in November.

Confused with this pic. Is the sub woofer mounted on the rear hatch door?

Hardly ! Nexon is sub-4 m.

Here the only change I am looking at is a 4.4 m length since 4.78 m is quite long. And many of us dont need the 3rd row.

This version would actually be very well proportioned.
(unlike the Mahindra's Xylo vs Quanto)

At 4.78m, the Hexa is exactly the length of the Aria & longer than the Toyota Fortuner. The Aria has one of the best 3rd row seats, I did a Leh tour in one & the adults were quite comfortable in the back. Expect this to be the same in Hexa too.

I do get your point. Probably Tata will plan a product in that segment, but for now I hope they keep their focus on tackling the Crysta and XUV before taking on the Duster and Creta too.

I have driven the Aria, and I am naturally expecting the Hexa to be better.

Agreed - it's the Crysta in the cross-hairs at this moment.

The only reason why I will not go for a Hexa is the length. Everything else looks good for me. And that's what made me make the point about something a little more compact, but retaining everything else.


Edit:
but most likely wont be as simple as chopping the front & rear to reduce the 40 cm .. :(

Yes. On the inside, right at the center of the rear boot door, just above the boot lock section.

Not officially disclosed yet, but I guess it will be close to the Aria's 5.6m mark.

That's odd.

Hope it doesn't vibrate the whole padding out. Will be better for customers to add rubber damping to the door pad as early as possible.

Whoa! This thread is screaming with enthusiasm!! Hexa is definitely making the right positive vibes.

Bookings start from 1st November. Is there any booking amount to be paid?

Since HK guys have been involved in the acoustics part, I'd expect them to consider this and damp it to prevent any rattles.

If you are asking how much is the booking amount, it's 11,000/- as I read in one of the posts.

I personally like the golden colour more than the others. Have any colours, apart from blue, golden, grey and black spotted till now?
