Can you share the source for this information? I would like to know the approach, departure, and breakover angles of the XUV 500 and the Hexa.

Firstly hearty congratulations to Ashok on his acquisition. His inroad price seems a bit on the high side. Can he share the break-up of the same? Reason I'm asking is, in Thane the onroad price quoted is Rs. 2073452 excluding extended warranty & AMC. They were ready to bring down the insurance after some bargaining. We didn't discuss the actual figures as I wasn't buying immediately. Still I feel the onroad would have come to around 20.5 lacs for the XTA 4x2.

Not sure about approach and departure angles, but the ground clearance of Hexa XT is 209mm as opposed to XUV's 200mm and Crysta's 193mm. The XM however has 200mm of clearance.

Being the first hexa to roll out from the showroom has its own reward

From today Concorde andheri has started the mega checkup camp
Being the first hexa to roll out of their showroom they invited me along with my car to inaugurate the camp,
( i feel its a very good gesture )

My car is keeping the tradition of making me a celebrity every now and then
TM sure knows how to keep the hexa flocks happy and i am sure this is just one of them

We were cordially greeted by Mr. Satyam and the manager of TC Motors.
You should have aggressively interrogated/ debriefed these gentlemen on all technical aspects of the Hexa! To get across the point that if PR is the goal of this exercise, then PR people/ PR firms will not cut it! Then they might even have pushed you up the foodchain to some actual technical people.

A relative of mine too had a tough time selling his Innova here. In my town, the customer base for Innova generally is Politicians/Realtors who are rich enough not to buy a used car. And executives/professionals needing 7-seaters look for generally XUV/Storme which are more car like. That left my friend with only taxi trade guys to deal with. The small owner/driver type cab guys who look for good used Innova. He had many callers but, trust me, they are horrible bargainers. Almost like a used car dealer showing up at your door-step to buy your used car. But, living in Mumbai, it shouldn't be difficult for you. That bit is surprising.

Lol how can you judge the resale value of a car just with an online calculator? Pls check the actual market. Resale value of the innova has always been its strong point, if you aren't getting the right price in a big city then something is wrong with your car or you are looking at the wrong place to sell it.

The Hexa is another 3-4 inches wider than Innova and I dont think I can do that everytime. Maybe will give it a try just for the heck of it.
I am sure you have considered this option but just in case you haven't, try and evaluate a possibility of exchanging your parking space to a location which is relatively easier to get in and out of with someone who has a smaller car. I am sure there will be a friendly owner or two who can understand the practical problem here. I think it is worth because we should not be deprived off owning a car we like due to parking constraints

Spotted a few Hexas on road. Must say they look better in real than in pics. That is not to say they look bad in pics. I see a bit of Rovers built into the design. The car is huge but seems to glide so effortlessly. Almost like a sedan. I haven't yet checked out the car at TM showrooms. But heard very positive things about it from those who did. I wish and hope all the success to TM with Hexa. May be their time has come to taste some glory after years of being a back-bencher.

Now, they must move on to next big thing, Nexon. Many are waiting for this car. Hope we see it by mid-year.

Yet to spot a single Hexa on the roads here. Been keeping a lookout having read and heard so much about it. Wonder if they've delivered any in these parts.

I also yet to see a single Hexa on-road here in Bangalore. (The cars may be there on road. It did not come across for me) The one I saw sometime back was a test drive car from one of the agencies.

Finally saw the Hexa in Chennai. Was on way to the office couple of days back and this one in white was in front of me. Wow... at first I thought it would be another Mercedes SUV, such is the aura. Its a class apart. The road presence is mind blowing. Crysta simply cannot match that. Couldn't have much of a look of the front since I was on my Aprilia and had to make a quick exit through the traffic. Hats off to Tata for this formidable product.

Congrats on your new car. Have they removed the 3k odd handling/RTO charges? I asked Adyaa motors if they would waive it off,when they included it in the quote, however they said that charge can't be waived off! As far as I know there is a ruling against dealers levying that charge.
