I checked with my friend on XT 4x4 and he has driven around 1400 km and getting mileage of around 14.3 in mixed driving so i think that's not a concern.

Regarding power he is saying enough on tap at auto mode better than storme .

Its not about just being super light on the A pedal. You learn how to play with it. There are times when you need to press the accelerator to make the vehicle downshift. Also, getting off the gas will not slow the vehicle down much as it will try to shift to a higher gear instead of holding it and providing engine braking. You will learn with experience exactly how much accelerator input is needed to make it downshift one gear or two gears. And also when to let off the pedal when you anticipate the car has to slow down.

Tata Hexa value perception would increase after new SUV launches this year!

Usually a new launch of a capable vehicle adversely impacts the sale in its category but, my humble prediction is, with launches of Compass, Kodiaq and Tiguan the sale of Tata Hexa would increase by handsome number.

The reasons behind the logic are:

1. People will understand that Hexa is a great value by providing true SUV qualities at much lower price. However, these competitors' overall qualities are definitely a lot to write about, but focus on what Hexa gives for the price while trying to minimise the shortcomings in the long run.

2. These foreign brands cannot match the reach and after-sales capabilities of Indian SUVs.

3. Maintenance cost, both regular and break-down would be much lower in favour of Tata (for around last six months there is no such news of any significant failure of Hexa, thanks God!)

So, along with XUV 500, Hexa would surely going to prove its mettle once people will see that real SUVs (not pseudo one so called compact SUVs) really cost in many ways! Want to see Hexa as a people's SUV with aspiration of a true SUV to conquer new places.

Hope Tata may be little more agile to take care of the following:

1. Keep eyes and ears close to customers' feedback (both existing, lost, competitors' and potential customers)

2. Act fast on the above feedback to bring appropriate changes on timely basis (am I asking more if I wish for effective (not cosmetic only) change cycle of 6 to 9 months in place of 1 year or so)

3. Keep bringing surprises and adding wow factors.

4. Harness technological and marketing capabilities of Jaguar Land Rover!

All the best Hexa!

A big thanks one and all here on team-bhp who influenced me and yesterday me and my dad took the plunge and have booked XTA Arizona Blue 6 seater variant. Waiting period seems 4 weeks for now but dealer has assured quick delivery.

He is quoting insurance at 82k
Any tips on this is welcome. Dealer has given us a option to lower the insurance quote. He even said I can take it from outside. Any good insurance quotes is welcome.

Accessories that I want are side steps which is priced at 16.5k. Is this is a good price or should I opt for it outside?

Dealer has quoted under body coating at 3k and engine protection at 1200. I feel I can look for options like 3m outside. Any good 3m shops in bangalore or hyderabad would be obliged to know. Good day to all. Cheers

Congratulations Vikvkv. I am sure you will not regret the plunge Which dealership did you go with? I remember you mentioning bad experience with your local dealer in Gulbarga? How was the booking and TD experience this time around?

Other brands such as M-Tek are available for much lower price (6-8K) but I am not sure if the fit and finish will be as good. My suggestion is try to get some more discount and bring it down to sub 15K and it should be worth it.

Underbody coating at 3K for a car like Hexa is cheap IMO. What is the warranty offered for the coating? If it is 5 years then please go ahead with it. You may want to check which material they are using - it should be either 3M or Wurth.

Sir thank you posting the entire insurance quote and I appreciate that. 82k for hexa seems outrageous to me. One of my friend who got a Hyundai SANTA FE was offered a similar quote but it costs almost 15-18 lacs of rupees more than hexa.
Seems like I have to check policies on policy bazaar.

Yes this seems like a good option and I will definitely enquire about this as to which brand they use. But is under body coating necessary for a new car?

I would say it is essential only if you frequently travel to coastal areas or regularly park your car in a place that has more moisture or regularly wash the under-body of the car with hard water.

I got a chance to sit in the middle bench of a Hexa XT 7 seater yesterday. Some observations:

+ Ride quality is excellent on truly broken roads (Maan Gaon road in Hinjewadi IT park, Pune).
+ Ambience inside the cabin is truly premium and exceptional. No way I'll ever consider Innova after this experience.
+ Build quality is top notch. Better than Innvova for sure.
+ It does not feel like a 20 lakh product, but more like a 30-35 lac one. One feels one got a lot more for the price. Definitely VFM if one considers the cost of a puny Creta and the Tucson. Not to mention the Innova.
+ On normal tarmac, you feel as if you are floating. Haven't experienced such plush ride quality before. But then, haven't ever sat in a Land Rover before either. Not until yesterday.
+ Oh, the gorgeous wheels. Sweet dreams, owners must be having.
+ NVH is pretty much non-existent, even on the manual! I could imagine how refined the auto would be!
+ You cannot help but admire the car after you get out. Definitely a more desirable car overall than the Innova. Saves some cash for that retirement fund too!

- Disembarking from the vehicle is just plain uncomfortable. I almost fell out of the middle row on-to the ground. Practice shall make owners perfect at getting out of the vehicle. :P
- One look at those gorgeous wheels and you know it's not going to be easy to shell out lakhs for the tyres. And god forbid if something happens to an alloy!
- Headlamps are good looking from the outside, which is kinda pointless, as the overall illumination from the halogen projectors is average. Tata, get bi-xenons/LEDs in the facelift please - but don't increase the cost by a lac just for better headlights (are you listening, VW!?)
- The rear bench's recline angle was too far back. It was uncomfortable. I had to sit reclined if I wanted the support of the head-rest. Could not figure out if it can be changed. It was dark and I could not feel any lever at the side of the right side seat.

Verdict: I'll be in the market for a people-carrier in 2021. And a next-generation Tata Hexa is what I'll be buying. No thank you, Toyota. But I'd rather not splurge money on your overpriced and oh-so-reliable products.

By any chance were you in Goa on 29th April? Me and bhpian 599gto were around Panaji and we saw a KA registered white Hexa XTA with Rhino Rack at Dona Paula parking lot on 29th April sometime during the afternoon. I don't remember the exact registration number though.

Wow small world !

We could have met, I was looking for a Team-Bhp sticker on the Hexa but couldn't find any. But one look at the Rhino Rack and I was sure this belongs to an enthusiast.
