Few more questions to experts,

Any idea if HEXA has cornering headlights & Cooler Box (I am just trying to compare the features of XUV since I found these 2 things quite usable for long drives)

Tata sure has created a buzz with HEXA, The fact that on forum such as "Team-BHP" HEXA page has over 1000+ comments compare to New T-Fort says a lot

Expectations are high (Some seem unrealistic) lets hope for best, Good Luck Tata

While we are on the list of missing features, another missing feature that the competition has, I think is the electrically adjustable seats. At least the expo display cars hadn't any. So feature wise, the XUV 500 and the Crysta have key-less go, power driver seats. And the xuv has gone one up; and it has a sunroof too.

Hexa has electrically adjustable seats. One of the pictures taken during the media drive shows controls for seats.

But both of them dont have the supposedly awesome sound system which hexa has! To me that makes more sense than a sunroof or a powered seat.

That is a visible misfit/uneven gap. Hope such things are fixed.

Zest was elected car of the year. Did that say much? Thread comments hardly translate to sales.

Music system is far easier/ cheaper to fit aftermarket as compared to sunroof or even powered seats.

That said, TATA has to be applauded for making me this a trend, with Maruti having announced a similar partnership with Harman now.

That ain't the point of the OP is my understanding. For a given budget & (in this context) Indian climatic condition, people would prefer to have a great system than a sunroof.

Secondly, installing after market system is one thing, but something well integrated & acoustically optimized is another.

Let me raise the question again, are MRF Wanderer 19" tyres available in market? I couldn't find any online. If no, are they being specifically developed for Hexa?

By the way, someone mentioned about detailing, spotted Hexagonal tiles in the background. Nice one.

Makes sense. The biggest talking point about the Tiago has been it's music system. Mass market loves it.

But again, it depends on the price points as well. If I were to buy Hexa at 20L plus figures - I would consider sunroof or powered seats as better luxuries than a ~30k music system. Whereas I am a big fan of that setup in the Tiago, for its a total game changer at that price point.

Climate doesn't really matter since the way I like the sunroof is with the inner lining open and glass closed.

Tuning a music system is not that hard these days now that we have all the apps available in mobile phones, what was once available only to high end technicians.

JBL speakers are considered budget stuff for aftermarket installs and are mostly nothing to write home about. The main culprit being their dhin-chak sound signature focusing more on bass and treble.

But, I'll wait for an actual audition.

PS - Again, this depends on your priorities. I invest a lot of time and effort on my car audio, so my priorities might be more demanding than others.

Also, pardon my ignorance. Can see two adjustment levers for the second row seats. Is that for accessing the third row? Or does it mean that the second row gets lumbar support as well?
